      I've had exact same lift since my first Vic in 2001 and it still does the job. Replaced wheel chock with one also from harbor freight. Drive on and holds bike up.
      This one? 1800 Lb. Capacity Motorcycle Stand/Wheel Chock

      I've been thinking about adding this one. I've seen several YT vids with this mod and see tons of upside.

      Has anyone heard of or use the WheelDock? I have one and it is absolutely awesome. Keeps my bike in place without compressing the shocks. Check it out and do some research watching the videos. Well worth the money, I even use it in the garage when I'm working on my bike or storing it for winter. Here is their website: Home | Wheeldock
      that product has been discussed before, I think most (like me) get turned off by the sticker price. Especially when you can get one at Harbor Freight for $63

      You pay thousands for your motorcycle, but complain about the price of the WheelDock that helps protect that motorcycle and you. Lifting and pulling on the handlebars to get your bike out of a wheel chock, is putting stress on your handlebars and your body. Your could get a hernia straining like that. Plus the WheelDock is better built by far, than any wheel chock I have ever seen.

      I have the Harbor Freight for my XCT. Lifts the bike with no issues. The front clamp is crap. I replaced it with the harbor freight wheel chock. Bolted it to the front of the lift after some drilling and what not. It works.

      I went with this wheel chock because the round tube one would hit the rear of the front fender. Worried that one day the fender would be bent in and paint chipped and crap. This one comes up just barely clearing the rear of the front fender.

      Not sure about a HF 1900 lb one but I have had the below one for over 3 years and using with my Kingpin with no issues. A couple people have said their bikes have fallen over without it secured down. I could see that happen if your bike is top-heavy.

      I don't have it secured down but I do put something heavyish behind it and ride up on it daily during the summer. Never an issue. It's awesome to use when you don't want to put it up on a jack or just park it in the garage. I hang it on the wall when not in use. I did add a couple spacers between the pins and the upright when attaching it together. Also put some non-skid pads under it too if you're not going to anchor. It helps with the sliding. If I had the space, like a third car garage, I would anchor it down to the floor.

      I bought an enclosed trailer the other day to store my bikes in for the winter and need to add a couple wheel chocks. Harbor freight has the Pittsburg ones at $35 ea and according to reviews they're as good as anything else. My concern is if the back of the fender will clear it? The pictures look like it would be a close call.

      Anyone have any experience with these?

      I too bought this chock along with the Harbor Freight table. This will undoubtedly hit the back t]of the front fender on a XC Tour or any XC that I know of. I am speaking from experience. I went back to harbor freight and purchased this one:

      It is also mounted directly to the table with some drilling through that was required.

      Yes that's the better one for sure.
      I love mine. Always fast to check oil and gas. I just let her warm up a bit. The reverse really is nice for pulling her out too, especially with my new knee.

      I have used this wheel chock several times to haul my XCT in a Toy Hauler with great success.. It clears the front fender without issues and also has a removable cross bar that allows you to use it in your garage. Real solid construction for the price.. Also, look for coupons and get it even cheaper..

      Side note: If you go with this one, get some washers and add them to the rods that are used to hold the front and back bracket. This makes things tighter and wont allow for much movement. You can also get some rubber tread and glue it to the bottom of the chock so it does not slide on your garage floor.

      I use this one in the garage when I need the bike off the stand.

      But even in the garage i sitl tie it down so it doesnt fall on me.. This would be more than enough for a trailer once bolted down. And it has eyelets for strapping down the bike.
      I have used it with the KP and my dad has used it with his XC.. both fenders clear the top of the wheel tower.
