Received dolly in less than 4 days, with the holiday impressive. Easy to assemble and sturdy. Great addition to garage and easy to use. Very good product.
Loved everything about it, except could not get a 180 rear tire on the ramp without almost dropping the 2016 Harley Ultra Classic.
Easy to use, not hard to load on the raps WITH power, plenty of room on the dolly. I recommend that you put it on a work bench to assemble. I used a 6 ft. folding table. It really saves your back and doing it on the floor would be a painful. Unlike other kits all the parts were in the box, we all have had those issues. I found it was easier to put the casters and ramps on each end and then put the 2 bases together (again the table made it so much easier). Instructions aren't the best and are lacking pictures and details of each assembly, but I figured it out. It took a little over an hour to assemble, I took my time because I hate to put things together then take them apart!! Make sure you put the ramp levers into there bracket before screwing everything together, (again lack of pictures/directions). Its no big deal, you will figure it out.
Still don't know if I put the kickstand tray in the right direction. The tray is shallow on one side and deep on the other side. I put the deep side towards the front of the bike, again a picture or a stamped F or label on the tray would have solved the problem. I only had one issue with the mechanical part. The caster that goes on the kickstand, there were 2 screws that were just a little to long and the caster keep scraping on it as it turned. Added an extra washer and it solved the problem. When putting on the casters make sure you leave them loose until you get all the bolts and nuts assembled. This just makes it easier to get the nuts on the bolts. I put the levers on the right side of the bike so the would not hit the saddle bags when the kickstand is down and it is easier to raise and lower when it is on the dolly (again detail pictures would have helped). The only thing I would change in the design would be to put a slot on the end of the rails to make it easier to tighten the end bolts/ rounded head screws. The casters work ok, my garage floor is smooth cement so its no big deal. The next project is now to clean up the garage to make more space, but I am looking forward to more useable space.
I think is worth the $ for a big bike and its heavy duty, not cheap plate. It's a whole lot better than the cheaper ones that Harbor sells. But that's just my opinion! I ordered it on a Tuesday night and had it on my door step that Friday.
Waiting for my son to see it and get his approval. I need something to buy him for Christmas!!
Easy order -- arrived in three days
Assembly relatively easy directions a bit vague but assembly time took about an hour
Loading my HD ultra limited easy I powered it onto the ramp with no dolly movement.
The dolly has plenty of length FLHTC fits with more than 4 inches to spare on the ends.
The kickstand part fits perfectly with plenty of room.
Moving the dolly on rough cement was doable -- but required pulling on engine and bag guards
I suggest upgrading to ball bearing dolly casters.
Works good if any thing to change, have better wheels. If any one out there found better wheels please post it. Saves space in the garage just a little hard to move around. Great service and fast shipping. So far very happy with it, looking for better wheels.
I bought one of these for myself a few months ago and I love the fact that I can easily move my Honda VTX 1300R easily around the carport of our mobile home. We were planning a trip to visit my son in South Carolina and asked him if he would like one for his Harley. He said he would like it because his wife could move his bike around the garage if needed while he was deployed.
We put it together in about 30 minutes and he got his bike on there and could not believe how easily it moved around in his garage. I'm happy with mine, and my son was glad I got one for him.
The instructions are vague but a little common sense gets the job done. As others have remarked, the nuts/bolts are poor quality. (don't over tighten). It took 2 tries to get my Street Glide on but not a big deal. The castors are cheapo and at some point I will upgrade.
My 2007 Harley Davidson Softail Standard fits on this dolly with no problem. My bike easily rolls up on to the dolly and pushes up snugly against the wall. Takes some effort to roll the bike around on my smooth cement floor but what do you expect, the bike weighs almost 800 lbs. Assembly took about an hour and I made sure not to go crazy tightening the bolts so I had no problem with any of them breaking. For the price, I am very happy with my purchase and can now get in and out of my garage with ease.
Just bought a cruiser motorcycle and I was struggling how to place it in a corner of my garage. The dollie enabled me to move a 700 lb bike with ease. I added a KiWAV kickstand pad to the kickstand extension to save the paint on the extension. It took a little practice to be able to push the bike onto the stand but now I have the method and I'm very happy with the product.
Product got here quickly and was easily assembled. I have a big Harley Ultra Classic. It fits on the dolly easily, but the weight makes it a little hard to move around, but it works!! Overall, I am quite happy with the product, as it is sturdy and should last a long time.
I have 2006 Roadking Custom and a small garage so this dolly is a great space saver bike fits perfect on the dolly with room to spare. Its nice during the winter months I can slide the bike in and out of the way when I want to wrench on the bike and still park a car in the garage. Real easy on off the dolly and rolls fairly easy on a my smooth conrete floor. The only negative the kit was missing almost all of the washers and the parts bag was intact, hardware is typical chinese junk but works.
Likes: Shipped fast, no parts lost, easy to assemble
Dislikes: You need to place a 3/4 inch board in front of the entrance ramp to keep the dolley from sliding away from you when trying to get the bike up on the dolley. The wheels do no have bearing on the wheel axles and while you can move the loaded dolley, It takes a lot of effort to move my 2013 Ultra Limited Harley that weighs about 1000 pounds on a smooth concrete floor.
Shipped fast! I had bought another version, from another company, but it was for a shorter wheelbase cycle. This one has plenty of room. I put both ramps down and the forward stop pin in place and have no trouble loading the bike. Heavier duty casters would be nice. The hardware package was not broken open but I was missing 20 of the flat washers. I wanted to get it together, so I didn't contact customer service, I just went and bought some, no waiting. It does what it's supposed to.
I purchased this for a Christmas present for my boyfriend and had to give to him early. Too excited and he loves it!!! He is not as young as young as he used to be and the shoulders don't work so well trying to move it into a corner out of the way. So he got home and put together in the cold and couldn't be happier. I like the looks of it and how easy it moves around and locks down. I think every motorcycle owner needs to have one.
Had limited space to park and turn around makes it eaiser to turnaround the bike and pull out of carport. Works like was stated
Excellent final product. Heavy duty parts, nice paint and ease of assembly. Took about an hour to assemble. Bike rolled onto the dolly with ease (perfect height). Rolled bike/dolly to wall and done. Room for both cars in the garage now! Would highly recommend this product to others. BTW, thanks to my wife for a great Christmas gift.
Bought this dolly because it was difficult to get my Heritage Softail into a tight spot between my vehicles. Now I can park my bike in less than half the time without worrying about damage. Shipping was within three days. assembly was easy, I did add a non- skid safe tread to the bottom of the ramps to prevent movement during loading. Good value at this price, product works as it should.
As others have indicated, it has a tendency to move if not blocked against the wall. It does make it much easier to move the motorcycle around in our garage. This is the main reason I purchased the dolly. Also, during the shipment, the nuts and bolts package was opened which caused the loss of some hardware. The customer care department readily came to my rescue and shipped the parts expeditiously. I would recommend this product to others!
Like other people have said does what it suppose to. Could roll a little easier. Box was beat up and a few carton marks on the product but its going to get scratched up any way Product arrived when I was told it would all in all happy. I move my flhx on this dolly.
Does just what I got it for. But could roll a little easier. I am now able to park my Goldwing against the wall without moving my wife's car first.
I Love It. No more sore knees trying to back my bike out of my shed, now I can ride up the ramp to my shed and onto the dolly. Turn it around and ride out of my shed and down the ramp. After loading on the dolly and going to lower it to move, do the back lever first this will prevent the front lever from resetting itself.
This is a great idea for people with little storage space. I have a Kawasaki Vaquero. Before it was very time consuming moving my bike back and forth trying to get it right up against the garage wall, I now just load my bike on the dolly and push it. Castor wheels swivel and move easily even with bike loaded. The ramp itself is good quality. Only downside is that hardware is cheap. While assembling it seemed I felt I could get a few more of the bolts tighter. But ended up snapping a few of them in half. Easy fix by going to the hardware store, though.
Love the idea. Works great for a 07 Dyna Wide Glide. Bolts for the wheels could stand to be better but just don't get crazy and they will work fine. The only problem I see is after the bike is loaded and locked in the down position on the ground and you go to raise it to move the bike when you step on one end lever the other end will move and go into the opposite position.. Making it impossible for 1 person to place it on the wheels to roll around. Example bike in loading position you raise front lever wheels on ground now in front of bike go to back to raise wheels and whole dolly moves causing front wheels to come off ground and back wheels are up now. Other than that its great. Anyone else having this problem or am I just to stupid to find a work around?
I read the reviews and they are spot on, hardware could be a little better, ( I broke a bolt putting wheels on, there was 1 extra in package) assembly instructions are none existent, but unit goes together well, no real instructions are needed. When I got the box off my porch, (UPS dropped it off while I was at work) it was nearly tore in half where the 2 pieces of plastic strapping went around the box, I'm not sure how they delivered it that way, box collapsed when I tried to move it. Once I cut the strapping the box lid became 3 separate pieces and the back became 2 pieces. I was really surprised to find all the parts still in the box as not all parts are in bags or secured to each other (hardware was bagged and end ramps had plastic bags over them, stop rods and square tubes that makes up splice was wrapped in bubble wrap, only thing that was). Some scuffing of finish and stickers were scratched, I expect it to look much worse after a few years of use, but would have been nice to have it unscaved when it was new. Although the packaging was really poor, overall the product looks like it will do what it is designed and advertised to do.
Dolly works pretty good. Although not as easy to move around as the video. Instructions for assembly were not great but if you have a little common sense it can be figured out. Dolly slides on my floor when I try to put the bike on, I have a 2008 Road King Classic. I have to butt the dolly up against a wall before it can be rolled onto the dolly. Other than that it does make it easier to park the bike and it take me less time than it did before I bought it. I can also get it into much tighter spots. All in all a good product.
Solved my problem of having to maneuver the bike out of a tight spot in the garage. Only issue I seen is the bolts snap easily. But a trip to the Hardware store solved it. Would highly recommend just don't over tighten bolts or go get stronger ones.
Extremely fast shipping from Discount Ramps. It arrived within 3 days and in good condition. Box was well protected internally. Dolly fits my Vstar 1300 perfectly. Dolly slides a little on garage floor. Maybe design could be enhanced with locking wheels so dolly wont slide. Other than that - perfect addition to my garage. Makes turning my bike around a breeze.
Very handy in a small place. Highly recommend!,
Received order when expected & packaging was secure & undamaged. Went together with little trouble, & although the fasteners could be a little more heavy duty, the unit is rigid. I will add rubber padding to the underside of the end jacks to keep it from sliding on my smooth garage floor, but otherwise, I like it & the way it works.
Now I can drive in AND out of my garage!
I can now park the Valkyrie across the back of our 1 car garage. Still plenty of room behind car, and now my wife can get out the passenger side in the garage(instead of getting out before backing in the garage). Dolly is hard to roll with bike on it, but still better than leaving the bike beside the car.
This ramp works as described. Feels sturdy and the only weak link I feel is the kickstand attachment. It is only attached by two bolts and the plate is only tack welded. Probably enough to serve it's purpose but I'm a welder by trade and I tend to over engineer my own projects. I plan to reinforce the welds in the future but for the money it works. I picked up some carpet at the local hardware store and lined the track with it. The ramp slides on my smooth garage floor so I placed some of the scrap carpet under the ramps and it solved the problem. Ramps glides over the creases in my concrete with ease. Overall very happy with the ramp for the price.
Received my dolly in a very timely manner. Ally parts were there, every nut, bolt and washer, and was easy to assemble. Was sold as used, but looks brand new. Now I can turn my Harley Road King around in my one car garage and makes for better storage. Great product!
Dolly arrived in box totally trashed during shipping. Wheels fell out of box putting unit in trunk. Went together pretty well. Used electric 1/4 inch ratchet and a couple wrenches. Plan on changing out some of the bolts for stronger ones. Had trouble loading bike as garage floor is smooth. Had to push dolly against work bench leg to get bike loaded. Bike is VTX 1300 and while I can move dolly by myself wheels don't track well. It will work for what I need, but will changing out wheels and adding rubber to front of dolly
Picked up my dolly and the box was trashed. Took two of us to put it in the car because the box was broken. Upon removing the box I found the bag containing the wheels had fallen out in the car, lucky me, and not somewhere else. Hope other parts are inside, we are moving so have to wait to assemble. Will upgrade if all is well
I have just enough room in the garage to keep the Heritage Classic next to the car. I saw this on line and thought if I could get the Bike closer to the wall it would make things much better. Another problem was when getting the Harley out I had to maneuver back and forth over and over again to get it turned around. Those days are over! Once I got the thing put together after a trip to Home Depot for decent bolts, all I do now is pull the bike up on the dolly, park it and when I'm ready to ride I just spin it around and drive off the dolly and out the garage door. This has solved all my parking and maneuvering problems!! The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating is the sub-standard bolts that came with it. As soon as I started putting it together bolts started snapping into. Just made a trip to the Home Depot and replaced them.
