Bike lifter

Somewhere I saw a device that lifts the rear wheel making chain lube easier. Does anyone know from where it comes ?

A centre stand does a nice job of that.

+ another 1 on the center stand. You really can't beat one-it doesn't take up any storage space, and is useful if you forget your kickstand pad (like me) and park on a soft area! Cheers-BB

Are you thinking of something like this?


I made this to use on my KLR. Motion Pro makes one for sale called a "Quick Jack". I found it very handy and plenty stable to change tires, lube the chain, etc. It can also be used to lift the front wheel off the ground for repairing flats on the front as well. Just place it under the foot peg instead of the swingarm. There never seems to be that perfect stick around when you need it and this fits easily in a topcase.

I agree with everyone else who says get a centerstand. But, if you really want to go cheap, here is one option:

If you decide against a center stand, google "paddock stand" and you'll get many options.
