    Default Lift Table Chock

    I picked up a HF lift table this weekend. I'm needing to get a chock to be able to load and strap down the bike on my own. I saw this one in the link below. It had good reviews and the price is right. Some have stated that there finder would hit the rear of the chock. But that wasnt on a 9. Wondering if anyone has had any experience with iy.

    Yes, that style will damage a fender if you have an aftermarket draping fender. If you have a stock fender there are no worries. Also, you could search for a motorcycle wheel clamp that can be added instead. It will be ok with a draping fender. You just push the bike on the lift and hold onto the left handle bar and then tighten the clamp. I have 2 higher end lifts with the clamp and no issues after a decade.
    I am almost always working on a bike. If you have questions and need an answer quickly, just call me. 317-507-0940. Always up late. There will be time for sleep when I am dead!

    I use the very similar Harbor Freight chock in my trailer. One note - if you run a 160 up front, it WILL squeeze the tire. I never had a problem with it, but it does not look good when it's getting 'squished."

    I will second that for Condor chocks, they are great.

    Have these in the link below in my trailer and they work just fine with the larger front tires as well.

    Not all Condor chalks will accommodate the larger front tires so you have to know which one you are buying.

    That is a very good chock. My good friend ZZUKE10 has one mounted in his bike trailer, but it does not work well with the longer front fenders, such as the Low & Mean Stealth Front Fender and the Barons Gangster Front Fender. That Chock will very likely chip and/or crack the bottom edges of the longer fenders, but it works perfectly for 9s that have the Stock Fender installed.

    CJ, do you leave you bike in the chock without strapping down?

    I have this Condor that I got from HUFF. But the attachment points are to wide for the table and I dont want to drill holes in the chock either. I looked to see if I could use just the center section but I couldnt tell.

    Pete, does that chock allow you to strap it down by yourself?

    Dont strap it down for every day parking on the table. But i do only when for example change out motormounts, rear tire etc. Have the condors on my trailer and i do strap them down when travling. but for just parking no strap needed. it will hold the bile by itself, and i have the 160 on the front.

    I’ve used baxleys in the past for my sport bikes, they are awesome. I have the condor chopper chock now. I have a 23” wheel with long fender so I needed that one. I have my bike parked in that chock 24/7 with no straps. It ain’t going anywhere

    I use a Condor chock on my Harbor Freight lifts. You will need to make side extensions unless you have very long legs. I use 2 x 6s. On one lift I have them attached to the lift and they are removable. On my other lift I use blocks and pin (long 1/2" bolts) the 2 x 6s to the blocks. The lift with the attached 2 x 6s works the best because the extensions are more stable.

    Do you happen to have pics of the extensions? Curios on how they attach.

    The lift with the attached sides is in FL and I'm in KY for the summer. I will make a sketch and post it tomorrow.

    Default Lift Tabe 2 x 6 Extension Sketch

    The left extension must be removed to activate the lift pedal.

    Ok I think I understand. You are basically welding and attaching the 2 rods on each side and the 2x6 lays on top, correct?

    Actually I use three rods on each side. Yes the 2 x 6 is on top of the rods. I designed it that way because of the material I had in the shop. Each rod has two mounting tabs and each square tubing has two mounting tabs.

    I have two Baxley Trailer Sport Chocks. One for the Nine and the other for my B-King. Neither hits the fender. Didn't hit the fender when I had an aftermarket Reaper fender on my Nine either. The Sport Chock is only good up to a 130 front, supposedly. I haven't had an issue with a 140 yet. Second picture is with a 140 front. In the third picture, you can see where the rear of the chock is narrower than the fender, so it went up inside the fender. Never caused any issues.

    Baxley makes a Chock specifically for a big bike. I've used mine on the 9 and my F6B. Works great on both. Ride on and step off. They make a bracket to mount it and what's nice is two bolts and you can move it from your lift to your trailer. It's pretty slick.

    Is it Baxley or Baxter? Just looked it up and for sure it's Baxley. My error. Haven't looked at the metal tags on them in years. OOPS!

    Harbor Freight actually sells a similar chock that I have used for years on all 4 M109's and every other bike that I have had. Last fall I bought another one to mount to a trailer to folding 2 bike trailer that I picked up. I am using it to lock in the spyder in the event that I should ever want to trailer it.
