Durable and easy to use. Could be a little wider though for my low rider frame.

Buyer Beware if on Sale
I bought this jack on sale for 50% off about a month ago but just got around to using it today.. Out of the box, there's a bit of assemble involved. The hydraulic bottle jack must be fastened to the jack frame with two bolts. Unfortunately, one of the two holes in the bottle jack base is drilled to close to the bottle jack body, making it impossible to thread the bolt straight down into the jack frame. I suppose I could've returned it, but they were no longer on sale and I was worried I'd just get store credit for it so I decided to grind away some metal from the bottle jack base to allow room for the bolt head to turn. It's all put together now and works fine. Just annoying. Anyway, if you get this item on sale, be sure to get it out of the box immediately to confirm you don't have the same problem as me.

I just bought this jack it is exactly as in the photo and have found it works perfect I have a Honda Aspencade with all the extras on it the weight is 900 lbs and is one HUGE bike This jack lifted it with no problems and lowered it nice and slow I let it down on the safety latch and had NO problems lifting and release it from safety latches the bike lifts to a comfortable work height sitting and was for the most part stable though i do suggest just for peace of mind you put tie downs on it if you plan to move it or shake the bike lots working on it I also found you could move the bike very easily while on the the jack I have recommended this jack to a friend best of all the sale price

you get what you pay for
I bought this lift 2 years ago for to do service on my Suzuki C50 cruiser. Last winter the bottle jack developed a fatal leak in my garage. Now it will only lift light loads, and not to full height. Even when new, it was very jerky when letting bike down from full lift after doing an oil change, etc. Bike only weighs 600 lbs wet, should be much smoother than that! I don't even store the bike on the lift, and I always relieved pressure on the bottle by using that locks.
Got mine on sale for 79 bucks...seemed like a bargain at the time as I thought it would have typical CT quality. Boy was I wrong. Only has a 1 year warranty, after that you're on your own.

Works Great with my Harley Ultra Classic
Was very nervous lifting my 800lb bike the first couple of times but now I have no problem. I find that it comes down faster than I would like but now that I have used it a few times I just let it down a few inches at a time and all is good. Had no problem with the lock, engaged it and then raised it up again disengaging then lowered the bike.

Problem 1 On my Magna the lift rail is directly in the way to get at the oil drain plug.
problem 2 The jack is not really stable enough to torque the rear axle nut even when bike is ratchet strapped to jack.
Other users have mentioned the next 2 as well. Problem 3 Whatever you do remember to disengage the safety bars when lowering. If you forget you can't raise the jack to release them. I've had to use my car jack to get the pressure off to release the lock.
and 4 the lift rails bearly reach to catch both sides of the frame. So measure your frame width before you buy this jack.

Ok, except for...
I bought this in the summer of 2011, the lift works very well, nice locking feature and slow release function.
However, my V-Star 650 Custom doesn't completely fit on the rails, the engine block sits below the bike frame and doesn't sit very well on the lift. So I had to build a small wood frame to properly fit and balance the bike on the lift so the engine wouldn't hit the rail. It's a good product except for the small size of the rails. Lastly, make sure you buy some tie down ratchets to make sure the bike doesn't fall when jacking it up.

One little problem with a quality product
I'm very impressed by the quality of this jack, but as others have noted, the saddle platform is too short. In my case it's too short for a 2009 VStar 1100 Classic - an adjustable 4-point saddle, preferably with the ability to spread them further apart as well, would make this a 5-star product. I really like the slow lowering noted by another reviewer as a problem, as nothing gets jarred that way.

Very handy lift!
I bought this lift a few years ago for lubing the chain on my street bike. I was nervous using it at first because the bike seemed wobbly. Got more comfortable using it with practice. I have since bought a couple of ATV's and a dual purpose motorcycle, the lift has become invaluable! My only beef on it is that it doesn't lower very well. It lowers so slowly that you don't even notice the bike going down. I suspect it is something not quite right with the release linkage, just haven't had time to check it over well. I would reccomend this product though, and only knocked one star off of the performance because of the slow lowering.
