Work stands for $80.00

A buddy of mine made one for me and it works great.

He puts rubber pads 10" apart on top of the stand to keep from scratching your KLR's underbelly and to avoid hitting the drain plug or the little case screw process.

PM me or email at [email protected] if you want one too.

For $80 most people would just go to Harbor Frieght and by a lift.

A respectful and humble design suggestion; put PADS, or SMOOTH-ROLLED RADIUS PLATES OR TUBES, on those bare angle-iron ends supporting the stand when lifting the bike.

Looks like the sharp corners of the bare angle-iron ends shown would gouge asphalt, flooring (like vinyl on a garage floor), or sink into mud, grass, or soft ground.

And, I think SLO-KLR has a point--the competition may be genuine made-in-China hydraulic lifts, from Pep Boys, Harbor Freight, etc., etc. Like it or not, "Money makes the world go 'round," and--like it or not, "globalization" is here.

That said, I wish your buddy success with his product, Drake; looks well-made.

The rebar is a nice touch
