Dirt Bike Stand

Do any of you guys have the type of stand where you step on the pedal to raise the bike? I am looking for a recommendation.

Thank you and ride safe,
Brian

Spend the extra money on a nicer one. You will be thankful in the end. But if you need one in a pinch the HF one will work.

The Motorsports are good but I just found with constant track use of going up and down 50 times a day on a Sat and Sun every other week lifting a 250 lbs Sumo, the MSR held up a little better - The Motorsports still rock and it is maybe a <5% difference in quality

Hum, I have the HF one. For 3 x more money I can get the MSR one. Is the MSR 3 x as good...probably not. Is it 50% better maybe.. Dimishing returns in my humble opinion...

The harbor frieght one is a piece of shit. If you have a $500 bike you could care less about I guess its fine. That the last think I want to worry about when I have my bike on the stand is if its going to fall off.

The shitty thing about the HF one is that you have to pin it to keep it from collapsing. Naturally I tossed the pin when I was putting it together, so now I just shove a screwdriver in the hole. I have yet to have a bike fall off it.

No my dirt bikes are around $1500 and I've never had one fall off the stand. It would be nice to not have to deal with that stupid pin. I should modify the design of the HF one to remedy that deficiency...
