My philosophy with motorcycles, especially my wing is that you always buy capability and safety first. On a thousand pound bike lifting mechanisms are prime safety devices when performing maintenance, and therefore worthy of your best dollar. It is absolutely not worth cheaping out on a lift; you get what you pay for. There are only two worth getting; J&S and Pitbull. I got my J&S used off of Craigslist for $400.00 and quickly pitched my Craftsman and never looked back, it's just not worth the "temporary" savings. Next would be a commercial air, hydraulic, or electric roll up unit, but now you're getting up close to a thousand bucks or more and unless you're working on them all of the time it wouldn't be worth the dollars and space.
