Motorcycle Stand, Harbor Freight, B&M, $23.99

PostAuthor: rizhii » Tue Mar 30, 2010 9:32 pm

I got this from a site called slickdeals... sounds reasonable to me I have one local, going to check it out.

"'Tis the season to start motorcycle maintenance for the summer riding season. After an exhaustive search, I found Harbor Freight had the cheapest motorcycle stand available at $39.99. To my pleasant surprise, at the register it rung up as $29.99! (even though it does not say on sale anywhere). I then proceeded to use my 20% off coupon for a final price of $23.99. I came back later in the afternoon with another coupon and purchased a second one for the front (front adapter costs $9.99, but you can use another coupon to bring it down to $7.99. My Suzuki SV650S is sitting on them now!"

Dude,
Which V-Star (model and year) did your tank come from? How much modification was required to fit it? What's the capacity?
I've been wondering if a V-Star tank would fit...I want to get more cruising range and that looks great! Nice job!!
Ride safe,
Mike

I think it is a 2003, if I remember I think 2001-2003 or so are the same, vstar 650 classic. It is only a 4.2 gallon tank but it shaped different and looks sweet. It is made for a wider neck so there is extra space on the sides. I have an "tire checker" on the under side of one side. The seat holds the end of the tank down for the moment, I finally got around to getting the stock brace so it will seat nice and snug once I mod it in, although I have used just the seat for almost two years with no problems. I can't remember if I had to move the mounting posts or not I'll check and report back.

If you go this route and are matching up parts be careful of the year and model. Some of the dashes are styled a little different.

riz, might be because I'm at work, but I couldn't get your "stand" link to work.

rizhii, your bike looks good with the Vstar tank. Some detailed pics of how well it fits etc would be helpful.

You have a nice list of the mods to your ride in your signature, but the one thing I would suggest (and the reason for the signature) is to put the year and model of your bike there as well.

My best friend bought that exact same stand. Nice find!

I also would like to know more about the V-star tank.

Thanks Jake I was trying to figure out the BBcode and completely missed it.
Thanks Pofarm wasn't sure if I could put the direct link on here.

I'll dig around to see if I have any pics of the tank mod, It just got freakn sunny here again so I'll try to get a few pics this weekend of how the tank sits on the frame.

I moved the tank info to a new thread

I have this stand too.. works good! The only downside is I have "bobbed" the bike and have moved the license plate and tail/brake lights to the left swing arm. It is now necessary to remove the lights and lic. plate when adjusting the chain etc.. while using this stand. I also had to notch out the left side lift pad so the rear wheel can be rotated while on the stand. The sprocket nuts were hitting the pad preventing the wheel from turning. The stand is sturdy and steady when the bike is on it...the help of another person is required when raising and lowering the rear of the bike. Get someone to hold the bike upright and steady and apply the front brake when lifting the rear tire, the stand roll right under the wheel. Remember the good old days when bikes came with center stands?!
