Did the instructions indicate what the max loading the stand can take? If so, what is it?

It might be worth getting a few stands for the other bikes(?).

How have the stands held up so far? Someone told me about those from Harbor Freight and said that they weren't very good quality for whatever reason. Due to that, I have not bought from there yet... but I need some soon. I don't see that they have a front stand tho.

No problems at all and it is one piece steel, very solid.


There is some items that you have to watch out for at Harbor Freight. However, if you read the reviews you can spot the questionable stuff. No matter, they take returns without any question. I buy most of my tools and hardware from harbor freight and you will see a lot of other suppliers sell the same stuff with a different name or color for more money.

I have read through other reviews of them and haven't noticed anything concerning with them, overall they seem to be great from what people are saying.

I think they are more than adequate to support a 350 lb CB300F. But make sure you get Item# 65620

Stay away from the "low profile" paddock stand they make which is silver and made of aluminum. You need a Swingarm stand (black color) for this bike because the Cb300F does not have spools. So get Item# 65620 and bring your 20% off coupon that you will find on the internet at

The stands are good enough for a chap that just wants to do maintenance at home on his own bike. I wouldnt recommend it to a professional mechanic or a hobbyist that does extensive tinkering with multiple bikes. But to hold up the CB300F it is MORE THAN adequate. But still recommend a second human (even grandma) to hold the front wheel completely straight with the handlebars (to hold it steady while you lift the rear wheel with the stand and get it properly aligned).

Here is what may happen if you try to lift your moto by yourself on the stand:


And certainly dont "sit on the bike" while it is on the stand. Its good enough for working on YOUR BIKE

I've been using similar on my CBR since I got it. Use it regularly when checking chain, removing wheel and general cleaning. Have one for the front end too but if I need the front wheel out I use a trolley jack under the engine. I have a big steel RSJ in my garage roof and I have a suspension rope (actually a load restraining strap for a few tons) and a very large industrial karabiner. A length of mountaineering rope through the top yoke and the karabiner makes the bike safe. The whole system could carry about 3 tons. Already used it to upgrade the front fork oil and will be using it again before long to fit progressive springs in the forks,
