Stay Up! The Best Motorcycle Stands

Regardless of the weather, our motorbikes need to be cleaned regularly. They also require maintenance and, sadly, the occasional repair. Many of us rely on the kickstand to keep the bike upright as we tinker. Unknowingly, we may be courting disaster.

While kickstands are convenient, they are not always reliable and certainly not safe enough when serious work is being done to the bike. Why risk that soul-destroying crunch as the bike keels over and hits the deck, when a stand could have prevented it?

With so many available it can be hard deciding which are the best motorcycle lift stands. Some appear to require the strength of Hercules simply to lift the bike, whereas others look too flimsy to support your monster’s weight. The best way to choose is to study motorcycle stand reviews. Let’s consider five stands that by their reviews rate as the best motorcycle stands available today.

1. CHN FW1 Front wheel stand

CHN FW-1 Front Wheel Stand

Although CHN also make a rear wheel stand, we’ll consider the front wheel stand as a separate item. The front and rear stands are often sold as a set.

Made of extra heavy-duty steel construction, with a red powder-coat finish, the FW1 requires only simple assembly. It comes complete with adapters for different size steering head pivots and works with most bikes. Folding out, the stand enables the bike to be lifted by the bike’s steering head.

This is a popular budget stand for anyone who wants to easily get into the front of the motorcycle for maintenance, repairs or upgrades.

2. Pit Bull SS Rear Stand

Pit Bull SS Rear Stand

With a 20 year pedigree of quality behind them, Pit Bull motorcycle stands are immediately recognizable by their distinctive gold and red colors.

They are considered by some to make the best motorcycle rear stand on the market. Made in the U.S. of high-grade steel tubing with squared-off shoulders, they are zinc plated for extra protection.

The SS Rear Stand is adjustable to fit nearly all road and sports bikes. Depending on how you want to hook it to the rear axle, it can be used as a standard or spooled rear stand merely by flipping the top supports over.

3. Venom Sport Bike Motorcycle Front & Rear Combo Wheel Lift Stands

Based on motorcycle stand reviews, the Venom Wheel Lift Stand is the best motorcycle lift stand available.

Coming as a set with both front and rear lift stands, the Venom is made of extra heavy-duty steel for long life and strength. Both stands come with four wheels for stability in most types of terrain.

Adjustable to fit most sports bikes, this stand set is ideal for repairs, maintenance and storage.

The front stand has rubber adapters to avoid scratching your forks. The rear stand is designed for ease of lifting, so you don’t need to be musclebound to start work.

MotoStance M-6 Rear Stand - Black

The MotoStance M-6 Rear Stand is constructed of thick heavy-duty steel to provide durability. The strength of the frame is enhanced by reinforced internal steel plugs, which allow the frame to support up to 350 pounds.

The one piece frame is available in black powder coating and is compact enough not to take up unnecessary space in your garage when in use. It is simple to adjust the width, and is designed to fit most swing arms, with or without spools.  The MotoStance M-6 is safe and straightforward for lifting the rear of your bike for maintenance and repair jobs.

5. Excel PST-004 Gold Universal Triangle Motorcycle Stand

Excel PST-004 Gold Universal Triangle Motorcycle Stand

Advertised as the most cost-efficient motorcycle stand on the market, the Excel PST-004 is remarkably simple in its design, making it both space saving and budget priced.

Built from heavy-duty steel for strength and durability, the frame is zinc coated to prevent rust and corrosion.

Its unique triangular and flattened W shape means that it will be stable even on rough ground.

The welded tip is engineered to be a universal fit for every axle of almost every bike from 80cc up to 500cc heavy weights. The simplicity of the frame means that using it is both convenient and simple to use.


A motorcycle stand should not be regarded as an accessory or an option.

Whether you are keen on doing your own repairs or you simply want a safe way to store your bike when not in use, a stand provides the perfect solution. The five mentioned above each have features that appeal to different people. Requirements vary, as do budgets and space in the garage.

The best motorcycle stand does not have to break the bank but check carefully that your bike is compatible with the make you are going to buy.

But don’t delay. It only takes one clumsy bump to bring dents to the bike’s tank, and tears to your eyes.

Here's a video that shows you some instructions how to use stands:
