Bursig bike lift - stand
« on: October 22, 2012, 04:31:21 PM »
Hi guys, I was looking at these Bursig bike lifts in a view to getting one. Has anyone on this site had any experience of these. Check out these utube links to see the bike stand being used on a VFR1200f. I have emailed the company and they say that because the Crosstourer has the same frame and swingarm as the VFR 1200f the bursig bike stand should fit.  :305:

Strider,

not sure on the Bursig, but knew a guy who had the Abba Stand which seemed pretty robust.

Hi munch,
The abba stand doesn't have any wheels that would allow me to push the bike into a corner of the garage.
With the bursig stand I can maximise precious space.

Strider..
If you have a centre stand fitted
Have a look at Wunderlich Easy park. I bought the medium one from Nippy Normans.
This had lockable wheels, then once the bike is on you can unlock the wheels and move the bike as needed.
The only negative side to this, the CT is front heavy takes a bit go getting used to. Or in my case I made up small set of dolly wheels this sits under the front wheel and allows me to move the bike one handed.
Ah the joy of open road on a dry day.. Priceless!!

I don't have a centre stand. In January I hired a VFR800 on holiday in New zealand. The bike was fully loaded with luggage for my 2 week trip around the south island. At a fuel stop I tried to put the bike on its centre stand and the bike fell over. This put me right off a centre stand so I opted out of having one fitted to my Crosstourer.  :187:

Ref. previous posts the ABBA stand does not suit our CT's as it is designed for road /sports bikes with a lower height and will not lift the CT clear of the ground. I contacted the company and they suggested to place a piece of timber under the ABBA stand to increase its height!
Any idea on a price on this Bursig stand and will they deliver it to the Euro area?

On the USA site it shows $575 + $90 for a set of wheels + postage (heavy!!!) so got to be around £500 all in :151: (over 600 euros)

Only guessing :148:

Reply to thetrecker:   Looked on the website. (Manufacturers site - NOT the USA which is an outlet)  For the VFR stand, cost is €395.00 plus post & package.  Didn't get so far as ordering, so don't know what that cost will be.
S.
Keep it on the Black Stuff or Dirt - BUT - Rubber Side Down.  Else it hurts!
