Would guess the XRL needs a taller one....

Do most of you hippies use the foot-lift type, or do you call-up 6 or 7 friends to help lift your XR up on the standard stand.

Any particular brand to buy or stay away from?


Thanks.

I just squeeze the front brake with my left hand ,grab the right rear frame and lift it up on the stand.Rock it around a little to get it balanced and you're set.

sweet...hadn't thought of that...(yes I'm a noob)

Does a milk crate work? Wouldn't mind saving 60+ bucks for mods if the plastic would work.

You can use a milk crate, but odds are that the L will shortly deform said crate. At least if it is one of the cheap crates I've "borrowed" before. I've got a home brewed foot lever lift up stand for the quick stash in the garage, but when I need to do serious work (need a little more stability) it goes on a serious stand. A nice stable, solid, four legged one.

I got onr for christmas.
It's an ATV lift from Sears a Cratsman and it lift all my ATV as well as the XR.
Once lifted you can roll the vehicle with ease.
I see it for 89.00
It's awesome!

Just got one from Wal-Mart. It's a GM Goodwrench brand for 70 bucks. Kind of large, but at a 1500 lb. rating, very stable. Thought this would be a nice do-all unit in case I get the wife a 4-wheeeler. Yes, it does go high enough to lift both wheels of my '07 XRL, although just barely. May install plywood pieces or something specific to grab skid bars. Comes with a decent set of ratchet-tie downs although I use them seldom. So far, I think it's a great choice.

rather then spending $20 on a tall crate just get 2 free normal milk crates and zip tie them together.

Milky goodness. I don't recommend this method. I now use two cement gardening blocks I found in my backyard.

If you're handy you can build one for nothing. Mine's 18" tall & is basically a small sawhorse. 4 2x4s cut @ a 5 degree angle @ the ends with a 2x6 top 14" long. Use some plywood scraps for bracing at the sides. Total cost: nothing if you got the stuff lying about.

I like it.
Love to make sawdust and I like to ride.
Combine the two? Nice.
