Advice for a Self-Locking Motorcycle Wheel Chock for GL1500

Post by Davek80514 » Sat Jun 28, 2014 4:27 pm



My brother has a motorcycle lift and we need a self locking wheel chock for our Goldwings. I've read reviews that the Harbor Freight one's won't work with a Goldwing. Any suggestions for one that will work for the Goldwing?

I haven't seen one that will - the self-locking ones usually work by tipping upward once the wheel passes over it. On a Goldwing, this will cause it to hit the back of the front fender. The best kind for Goldwings is the type where you push the wheel forward into it, then use a crank to "pinch" the wheel/tire from the sides and hold it in place.
