Suggestion needed for KLR Lift

I have a 2003 KLR and was shopping for new lift on Amazon. Any suggestions for one that isnt too spendy but works well. I was reading some reviews that made me a little concerned since all lifts are bit different and you don't want that has the lift bars in the wrong place.

Any ol' MADE-IN-CHINA hydraulic ATV/MC lift will "git 'er done," seems to me--the bike can be balanced on its skid plate to remain vertical; or--can be strapped to the lift to insure it won't fall over.

Google 'em; Harbor Freight, et al, have 'em on sale from time to time. We're not talking about a lot of money; you'll get change from the $ 100 bill!

I bought a Harbor Freight one, was like $50. Has points you can ratchet-strap the bike to it so it doesn't tip over. Don't know what else you could want.

This one -
You can find it all the time on sale. I don't remember what I paid, maybe it was more like $60 or $69 or something. Was cheap for a bike lift.

I bought a craftsman 100$ one although I suspect it may be made in china as well. It works good and is 1500# rated so I can lift the ATV, one end of the UTV, lawn mower, and other stuff with it too without worry.

Done and Done

I will swing by and pick up the Harbor Freight one. After I return the cheap, still in the box, too small lift. Harbor Freight does have a 20% off coupon for one item on Labor Day. Thanks again.
