Default Craftsman 1500lb Aluminum bike lift?

I'm thinking of grabbing one if these off CL for a good price. Anybody know if it's a decent choice for the Warrior?

I have the older black version one, from when they were made here in N. Carolina. I used to lift my old vstar 1300 with it. I bought 2 lifts now. That new style one, I haven't heard any reviews but Kmart outsourced the craftsman line over seas right after they acquired sears. And since Stanley (wal-mart) just purchased craftsman a few months ago, I'm sure production will stay over seas.

I have one and I've never had an issue out of it.

I bought this one a few years ago and it has paid for itself at least 5 times over with how fast I go through tires (commute 110mi/day). $50 tire replacement/tire at dealer if on bike, and $25/tire if you hand them the wheel. well worth the investment for that alone.

The Craftsman jack is a decent jack, but the bike is very flimsy lifted off the ground with it. The best 2 motorcycle jacks out there are J&S and Pittbull but they are very expensive. The bike is solid on top of these 2 jacks.

Mine works fine but it wiggles when you're on the cylinder.

Once you drop it on the safety notches, it gets more stable

I got the Jack from Harbor Freight very sturdy with the Warrior on it. I get the less expensive one at Harbor Freight it weighs significantly more than the aluminum frame one but all the reviews say it's more stable I just wouldn't want to pick the jack up off the ground very often

I have the HF one too, biggest and only complaint I have is how much room it takes up when not in use. I put some sturdy hooks in a 2x4 that I mounted horizontally to some wall studs to keep it out of the way. Other than that no complaints, I use it all the time.
