    You will need a jack to get the bike on the stand.

    Not sure how tall Pepsx or Goheen's stands are, but for the homemade stand (what I use) need to jack the bike up to get the stand under it.

    Jeremy makes an excellent stand as well. I purchased one for my 1800 last year and have used it many times. He's added casters to the new model which would be a huge help when storing the bike during the winter.

    You do need a floor jack for the Goheen and the PepsX stands.

    Will an ordinary alligator jack can be use for motorcycle? What kind of jack do you use

    I use the Harbor Freight Motorcycle jack and I've seen others using the Sears brand motorcycle jack. You need the motorcycle jack to lift the bike safely under the swingarms! I also have one of Jeremy's stands and love it!! I got one of the early ones or I would purchase one of his that have the castors (wheels) on it as that would make it much easier to move around the garage in the winter months! Don't know about others, but my garage seems to fill up with more crap in the winter!!!

    If all you want is to hold the bike upright all you need is a chock. However a decent one will cost you as much as a jack.

    My vote goes to the pepsx stand too, it's sturdy and reliable. I'll go for safety anytime so I like welded metal over wood.

    the Stands (either bought, steel or wood) are made to hold the bike up steady once they've been lifted to certain height by the Motorcycle Jack.
    what is it exactly you're thinking of using the stand for?
    i ask this because there's also a way to put it up on wood blocks to change oil and other purposes if need be.

    very simple really.

    trying to lift up bike on regular car jack, scissor jack can be very dangerous to user and scoot alike. just my $.02

    we dont want you to try and reinvent the wheel and maybe get hurt by it.
    let us know...

    I built a Wood stand for mine.. Very strong but bulky. Not as easy to put away. But it makes a great table when the bike is not using it!

    I just changed my oil and used the bareasschoppers idea...... Brilliant. Worked like a charm......

    I made one of 4x4 but damn if it wasnt too heavy to lug around and no where to put it after.

    If I can get my hands on some scrap square tubing, I will attempt to weld one. Though I don't know how to weld LOL .. after that fails, then I will shell out the $135 for a pepsx.
