The ultimate Burgman accessory.

C'mon, you know you all want one!

This 'accessory' has made it so much easier to carry out a 12 month service in preparation for our Monaco/South of France trip in just over two weeks time.

Re: The ultimate Burgman accessory.

I have a lift but not a table lift. That one is nice.

Re: The ultimate Burgman accessory.

Where did you source, how much did you pay and how much does it weigh?

I sourced one from Machine Mart - the delivery truck appeared and the driver said your goods are on the truck - your job to get them off - it weighed 300KG (or so he said) - so I told him to fornicate off!

There was no way, I was going to risk my back. I phoned Machine Mart and asked them to deliver using a truck with a tail lift - unbelievably they said they could not guarantee it so I asked for my money back.

Re: The ultimate Burgman accessory.

I got it from CJ Autos off eBay. £404 delivered. Fairly heavy but me and the TNT driver lifted it off and walked it into the workshop. It lifts 450 kg. it's on wheels so I suppose once off the lorry you could take it out of the box and wheel it about.

Re: The ultimate Burgman accessory.

It looks like the one I purchased at Harbor Freight . . . approx. $500 USD and you are totally correct in that it is the cats meow. I use mine for lawn mowers (side work I do) and any other task that if I get the workpiece in the air I can generally do the repair/maintainance work. Mine came crated and I had to do some light assembly (the wheels and front wheel vice/chock. Works great IMHO.

Re: The ultimate Burgman accessory.

Thanks Steve

Useful info. For clarification my delivery driver said he could not help lift it off because he was just a driver. Yeah right - there was no way I was lifting that mother off on my tod - too big, too heavy and the load bed was shoulder height.

Re: The ultimate Burgman accessory.

Couple questions...
Does it roll easy when loaded with the bike?
Do the castors swivel?

Just wondering if it can be moved while loaded and if it's even safe to do so. I probably wouldn't move it with the bike as high as it could go but would still be nice to have the bike a foot off the ground and move it out of the way when not working on it.

That's one thing I can do with the non-table lift... I can leave the bike on it (at full height) and roll it all over the place. Mine has heavy duty castors and all 4 of them swivel.

Would love to have the table lift though...

Re: The ultimate Burgman accessory.

It does say not to move it about with a bike on but I have with my Honda and my Puch moped but not the Burger. Yet! It has two fixed wheels and two castors with two lock-down screws next to them that lifts the castors off the floor so that it can't move when loading a bike onto it.

A couple of faults; Firstly, its quite high when fully lowered and my exhaust juuuust scraped when going up on it. Also, it seems to be built for motorbikes and not scoters (well, Burgmans at least) because the cut-out for the rear wheel is where the centre stand is (I'm assuming scooters have the centre stand more towards the rear than a m/cycle). Another fault is that with the weight of the Burger on the removable rear wheel cut-out, the cut-out flexes quite badly. Obviously, with the front wheel clamped, you cannot use the centre stand normally as the scooter needs to go back as it goes up. I got over these problems by permanently welding the removable plate in position. When loading, I rode the scoot on and clamped the front wheel. It would then stand up on its own albeit a bit wobbly due mainly to the weight of the sooter. Then, with the table up in the air and with someone holding the rear of the scoot steady, I jacked it up using a small trolley jack just enough to be able to flip the centre stand down and then lowered the scoot down onto the stand. I have got some ratchet straps coming to be on the safe side but i think they will only be needed on a bike when you are not using the centre stand and just have the front wheel clamped.

Bike and lift surprisingly stable in use although for scoots as big as a Burger I'd recommend having a helper present when loading and unloading. I did load the Burger on it myself with no helper as soon as I got it out of the crate, but as you are about 8" off the ground with very little space to put your feet down (I stood in the step through and walked up as I rode it on) it can bee a bit scary. I had 4 car tyres stacked either side in case I dropped it.

It is a very useful tool to have and as we are thinking of working on go-karts in our training centre, it will be handy for them too. Might even get another one!
