Motocross stands come in all shapes and sizes, and some even provide certain functions that others do not. Simple stands, such as a wheel chock, can be used when your bike is on display or in storage, while you are waiting to take your back onto the track, or while transporting your bike from one location to another. Lift stands, on the other hand, are much more versatile. These not only stabilize your bike onto a platform, but they let you adjust the height of the stand, as well – which makes it much more accessible when it comes to servicing or upgrading parts and accessories. If you haven’t yet picked one up, MotoStance makes both a basic wheel chock and a versatile lift stand that are not only high quality, but affordable, too.
Meant for use on your front wheel, the MotoStance Wheel Chock is the ideal solution when you need to make sure your bike remains stable – either during storage, display, or transportation. Designed for tires 3.5 inches or less in diameter, the MotoStance Wheel Chock comes complete with all of the mounting hardware needed for installation. Best of all, it can be used in a trailer, in a garage, on the track, or in the back of a pick-up truck.
The main supports of the MotoStance Wheel Chock is cast from a single, heavy-duty rolled steel bar, so you can be confident that it will support the full weight of your valuable bike. Steel reinforcements, as well as a bottom cross-brace, provide additional assurance when you are trusting your bike to this piece of motocross gear. The MotoStance Wheel Chock comes with a black, powder coated finish, and rubber end caps prevent it from damaging floor surfaces. MotoStance’s Wheel Chock is available for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $49.99.
Priced at $79.99, the MotoStance MX Lift Stand is one of the most affordable – and versatile – units on the market today. Excellent for beginners and even professionals, the heavy-duty lift is rated for a maximum weight of 450 pounds. With a minimum height that puts your bike 11.8 inches from the ground, the MotoStance MX Lift Stand is capable of lifting your bike up to 17 inches off the ground – which makes it ideal for mechanics and riders who service their own bikes.
Because it is constructed of steel, the MotoStance MX Lift Stand is sure to stand up to the test of time. Moreover, the black, powder coated finish will keep the piece looking sleek and new for years to come – regardless of how much use or abuse you put it through. The support struts and foot lift all feature rubber overlays, which will protect the finish of your bike as well as the surface that the stand is resting on. Finally, the hardware of the MotoStance MX Lift Stand has all been coated in Zinc for maximum rust and corrosion protection.
