Motorcycle Wheel Cleaning Stand

Post by Mag » Fri Sep 01, 2017 10:14 am ... 98800.html

So, I was wandering through my local Harbor Freight (we are doing a lighted boat parade on our lake this weekend, and the pontoon needed some "accessories"), and I found this motorcycle ramp on one of the isles. Looked sorta damn handy and me thinking when I was scrubbing my front wheel, I had to roll the bike backward in my I guess that is a way to save $20 but this looked sorta handy, and I can hang it up flat on my garage wall outa the way.

So the big question any of you have one of these and what do you think? Yes, there are 70+ reviews on site, but sometimes I like to hear from "direct family" and I have never heard anyone hold back on product reviews here on GWD.

I have one but really haven't used it for cleaning wheels just to lube chains on my other bikes but see that it could work for this.

I have one but found it difficult to use while the bike is on the side stand. Very difficult to line it up just right to make it work while on the center stand. It appears to be a good idea but when using it with a heavy Gold Wing it turns out to be not so good.

I've seen them and thought about buying one. Had a chance to get one free at one point but turned that down too.

I realized that I always park the bike in the garage on the center stand. When I need to rotate the front wheel, I simply lift on the wheel and rotate it.

I put wing on center stand and use a car sissor jack and lift the front enough to spin the wheel for cleaning. Also use jack to pull wheel from forks.

I can't really see needing this for the front wheel, and if I ever got my wing up on it for the back wheel, I would probably need six big helpers to get it back off. The picture of a goldwing rear wheel on this is horrifying. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have one and it works great, BUT, since our bike is a trike, there is a lot of weight on the front wheel. So to off set this, I put a jack under the engine to just take the some weight off the front wheel in order to spin it easily. For me it is great. Use my polish and buffer wheel and go to town. Hope this helps.
