Rear Lift Stand
« on: August 05, 2019, 06:49:07 PM »
I have the 2013 GW250 and having recently bought it, see that some sort of rear lift will be a huge help in chain maintenance. Does anyone here in the U.S. have a favorite that does NOT cost an arm and a leg? Thanks!!
Where I ride doesn't matter - that I still do - does.

Depends what you call an 'arm and leg'?  :084:

A bike lift will cost anything from £30 but a centre stand new is only about £60, might be available second hand, this will make ANY job you intend to do 100% easier  :028:

The center stand is well worth it's price, and it's always with you.  It also makes fueling easier.

Agreed. Centre stand is the cheapest and easiest option.

That lifts the back wheel off the ground and if you want to lift the front, put a jack under the sump ( carefully  :001: )
