Swing and a miss. Thought this would be the bees knees for my Husky 701, but as other reviewers have pointed out the welds are messy and the stand wobbles. Not sure buying rubber feet would even work. Also, the swivel top is difficult to lock so that the platform doesn't swivel when lifting the bike, further making it difficult to use. Going in the garage sale pile.
Rebranded Asia made garbage. I mean I realize that was going to be the case but I thought “Acerbis put their name on it; how bad can it be?”
Poor Acerbis. It’s gotten that bad hugh? :(
Bad... spend a bit extra a get something decent truly. I’m not even gonna bother returning it as it DOES lift my 300lb bike but is EXTREMELY wobbly and crooked. Forget getting on the bike while on the stand.
When I get a chance to make a decent stand I will and give this to my worst enemy. Lol
After unboxing the stand and looking it over I quickly noticed The welds were messy and it had no rubber feet ,so it’s metal to ground .Due to the weld joint at the bottom metal H and because there’s no rubber feet the stand rocks back and forth on hard surfaces. I returned the Stand in the end ,to many other choices to try and make this stand work!
Highly recommend, especially if you have a heavier enduro like a DR650 or XR650. Way easier than a regular stand.
Decent quality, not perfect, but also not the most expensive. Shock lets the bike down smooth to prevent mishaps. Bike sits slightly tilted to the left, due to a bit of play in the shaft (probably not noticeable to most people). Would recommend lubing the shaft and pivot points for smoother action. Does require a bit of downforce on the handle to lift a heavier bike.
Provides just shy of 3.5" of lift ("shy" meaning 1/16"). Using for my WR450R, slides under the skid plate without having to lift up on the bike, then will lift both tires off the ground.
