Which workshop lift

Hi everyone,
I've been looking at a lift for my '92 Fireblade.

First I looked at the pump up ramped tables that hold the front wheel steady and you use a paddock stack at the rear. These have a removable panel to aid rear wheel removal.
Advantage: it provides a working platform, stable support, useful for various bikes and any other mechanical job you need raising.
Disadvantage: you need a second lift/ support on the platform to allow front wheel removal. Take up a lot of space.
Second I looked at the Eazy rizer lift that lifts the bike on a column/tower support using under bike support
Advantage: allows removal of front and rear wheels and even forks & swinging arm. More compact, so takes up less room in and out of use.
Disadvantage: seems to lift by the exhaust system - not sure about this from a loading/stress point of view + you can't remove the exhaust system?

Any body got experience of these lift types can give me some feedback and guidance.
Thanks for any input :-)
Matt.

Re: Which workshop lift

not sure if youve seen this option. it lifts from the swingarm pivot point on the frame via a pin system. ive got several friends with similar lifts that are very happy with them.

If you don't mind shelling out 400 bucks check out the Diamondback Python T6 lift. Saw the demo at Bike Week. Amazing comes to mind.

Re: Which workshop lift

For the best of both worlds, look at the APlusLift MT1500X.
