Works perfectly, using this lift stand on KTM 2018 EXC500F & it works great. You figure out where to place the stand under the engine or skid plate, operate the lift pedal downwards, motorcycle goes up, both wheels are now off the ground. Looks durable, is complete, works great. ????????
Does not fit under a Husky 701, which is irrelevant, because there is not nearly enough leverage with the design to lift a bike over ~275lbs. Even with a 220lb man bouncing on the foot lever, there is no prayer of lifting a 300+ lb bike.
When the Swede's took back Husqvarna from the Italians, we knew there would be great products. This lift just because it is blue and not orange, red or green says it is quality. There is no fancy plastic rear subframe with grab handles like the real Husky's yet it's light. The stand has a triple layer head gasket making it superior over the orange two layer head gasket stand, so you know it will lift your bike faster. It does not have a catchy slogan like "Race Ready" although have you ever seen Graham Jarvis in action? That's right Swedish Husqvarna does not need to let you know they are ready to race in words, they just throw down with their actions. In all seriousness this stand is great, the best part is it will be delivered and assembled by the members of the Swedish bikini team in a Saab turbo convertible delivery truck.
I love this stand... action is smooth and is very stable and made well. It could be a bit lower to help sliding it under the bike to miss the frame when the bike is setup for smaller, lighter riders with less preload and more static sag around 110mm, the stand hits the frame a bit and you need to lift up on the bike a bit. if your weight is 170 lbs + then this will not be an issue.. Step lever action is good, but the bike does come down fast and you need to mind the liver to not get in its way.
Biggest grip is that the end caps of legs come off and you need to reglue them or put a pop rivet in each to keep on the stand.. Other gripe is that it is a Husky stand and the Husky frame is not flat on the bottom so front wheel is hard to keep off the ground. It could use a bump-bar up front to wedge under the front frame tubes to hold up the front tire too. None of these are deal breakers for me as it is a well made stand for the $. RDR.
I've been using this stand for a few months for my KTM 530 EXC with an 3.4 Gallon tank. This lift is the perfect height for my dual purpose bike. It's pretty easy to lift the bike and bring the bike back down. I got this for my garage, but have also used it out at the camp site to reset the air pressure in my forks.
i like how the stand locks into place and is sturdy, only problem i had is i wish it would adjust lower, a bit hard to get my CRF150R on it- also wish it was hydraulic but not a major issue- good stand overall
