Why Buy a Motorcycle Lift? Motorcycle Lift Reviews: Our Top 3 Picks

First, what is a motorcycle lift? And why do you need one?

A motorcycle lift is ideal for some maintenance activities like changing fluids or just washing the motorcycle from tail to tip. Lifts are gaining more popularity as more bikers are taking responsibility of maintaining their bikes. As a result, various models of lifts are now available. There are different models for sports bikes, street bikes, race bikes, cruisers, choppers and custom bikes.

A motorcycle lift with the optional extensions can be used for many different recreational vehicles such as four wheelers, atvs, jet ski, snowmobile, as well as non-reacreational vehicles such as a riding mower. The main difference between the various lifts is the weight capacity that it supports and the style of the wheel frame, which has to be considered very carefully as using an incorrect type of lift could scratch your bike or could also damage the brakes with the wrong type of wheel secure.

One major reason one may need to buy a motorcycle lift is physical safety! Having a strong, secure lift can ensure your personal safety, as well as safety of the vehicle you are working on. If you are working on a "makeshift" lift, of sorts, it can be dangerous, and the potential for the vehicle to fall and get damaged (or injure you!) can be great. Secondly, lifts take a load off of your back! Without having to crouch in awkward positions to get beneath your vehicle to perform maintenance tasks, you will be giving your back a huge respite. As our bodies age, this is welcome relief if you plan on staying active and continuing with your activities that require such vehicles.

Two types of motorcycle lifts available are:

      * Air Lift
      * Air / Hydraulic Lift

Some of the points that you should keep in mind before buying a motorcycle lift are:

      * How high you want the platform to rise
      * Where will the lift be used
      * How long will you be leaving the bike on the lift
      * What type of security you require
      * How big is the bike

If you've ever considered purchasing a motorcycle table lift for working on your bike then we recommend several. To buy a motorcycle lift you should always research the possibilities. We recommend the PRO 1200 Motorcycle Lift, Elevator Series Lifts, and Titan Lifts. We carry all three and have linked our pages to them for your convenience. We stand behind the quality of the lifts of each of these manufacturers. They each make top notch, solid-steel units you'll want to check out.
