    My kit has been lifting and holding my bikes up to 500lbs for the last
    four year with no issues. I position my straps on the top center pipe as
    close as doable to the sides legs (vertical pipe) and not in the middle
    of the upper pipe for added strenght

    I appreciate the ingenuity but those pipes are not designed to support
    loads like that. If the vertical pipes have any bend in them at all there
    will be a ton of stress in the thin walls of the pipe. It will probably
    work for a small while, then you will find a huge crack somewhere.
    Hopefully when you’re not under it.

    Very cool thought. Maybe not the safest since that pipe is meant for carrying
    liquids not being used for structural applications.

    The thought is excellent as long as you take yor fairings aray. How about if you
    dont want to take them away?

    5 minutes to place together my ass. This thing will hurt you. I paid $600 for
    a lift table. It is worth every penny.

    Pipe is extremely brittle please do be careful. The problem areas are at
    the treaded joints. I’ve tried several times to build stuff using plumbing
    pipe and have had my honest share of mishaps with the ends simply snapping
    off w/o prior notice.

    Excellent thought; I’d probably invest in 4 more tee’s, four 4″ nipples, & 2 more
    36″ pipes for across the bottom to ensure rigidity when hoisting up my
    like object. I, myself, made a rear swingarm lift out of pipe and joints
    that I’ve been using for a number of years (’cause I’m a cheapskate).

    Wow, where do you live, Guam, Hawaii, Alaska? I would have left the
    materials at the counter. Check with Lowes or Home Depot if you reside in
    the 48 states.

    when you tighten top bar , one side is becoming loose. Surpass to place one 90
    on first then tighten into other 90.

    I haven’t had any issue using it. Just be careful when releasing if your
    going to use tie down straps. A hand winch is best!

    The stand is very safe. But, I would suggest using a manual hand
    winch,crane or an electric mini hoist from harbor frieght if you are not
    comfortable with using tie down ratchets. Lifting with the ratchet tie
    downs is a breeze. Not so when releasing under weight of an 500lb
    dirt bike.
