No matter whether you have put your bike away until the weather gets better or if you are still using it daily, you need to maintain it. And there’s no better time to do that than right now! Keep reading for our top 5 reasons to purchase a motorcycle lift.
Your bike can be a hassle to maintain, especially if you don’t have much space in your garage to work on it. But don’t fear, one of the best ways to make maintenance and repairs easier is with a motorcycle lift.
Here are 5 reasons why you should buy one for your garage, shop or even for use at home.
Investing in a lift can save you money in the long run by making it easier to maintain your bike and reducing the need for expensive repairs. Plus owning a bike lift will avoid the need to take your bike to a garage to perform routine maintenance. You can perform it yourself and save on that expensive garage bill. Don’t worry if you aren’t fully clued up on what to do – there are plenty of videos and tutorials online to help for free!
A motorcycle lift allows you to raise your bike safely and securely off the ground, making it easier to work on and reducing the risk of injury. Inappropriate lifting techniques not only puts your bike at risk but you as well! Bikes, although don’t look it, can be very heavy. Trying to lift a bike the wrong way can leave you with a bad back or worse – a trip to the hospital. A motorcycle lift ensures you are not bending the wrong way to get to those hard to reach areas.
On the lift the bike remains upright while resting on the frame and doesn’t rest on the kickstand meaning there is no risk of it falling over onto the floor or onto you!
3. Easy Access / Convenience
With a lift, you can easily access all parts of your bike, including the wheels, suspension, and engine. This makes it much easier to perform routine maintenance, such as oil changes and chain and sprocket care, as well as more extensive repairs.
A bike lift also allows you to easily inspect all areas of your bike much easier and get even closer, either standing or kneeling – no more dust or oils will spill over you because of you lying on the ground!
4. Storage and space
A lift can also be used to store your motorcycle when it’s not in use, keeping it off the ground and protecting it from damage. Also if you are struggling for space in your garage or workshop, a motorcycle lift can make the difference and allow you to reach those harder to reach areas! You won’t need to reshuffle everything you have when storing your bike for maintenance, for winter or just overnight.
5. Allows use of specialist tools and equipment
Hoisting your bike onto a lift will allow the use of equipment which otherwise would not be possible to use without a lift. It is much easier to use large tools when standing where you don’t have to bend into awkward positions.
Overall, a bike lift is a valuable investment for any motorcycle owner. It increases safety, convenience, and storage options, and is cost-effective in the long run. If you’re serious about maintaining your motorcycle and want to keep it in the best shape possible, consider buying a lift to make the job easier and more efficient – you won’t regret it!
