Did you hear? Discount Ramps is running a contest for motorcycle owners!
That’s kind of a little joke, because if you follow Discount Ramps through any of our social media outlets (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest), you’re probably WELL aware of this, since we’ve been a bit incessant about getting the word out. The Road Warrior Photo Contest kicked off the last week in August and extends through next weekend, closing on September 15. The winner of the contest (the person whose motorcycle photo receives the most votes by closing) is going to be rewarded handsomely with a Black Widow Motorcycle Jack / Lift. This is a super handy tool for anyone with a motorcycle who wants to take care of their own repairs or maintenance, so we thought we’d show you a little bit about it.
The Black Widow Motorcycle Lift handles most motorcycles weighing up to 1,500 pounds, whether you own a Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, Honda, Suzuki, BMW or other make, so any bike, even the big, heavy ones, are easily maneuvered for repairs or to swing into the corner for winter storage. The motorcycle jack elevates a cycle up to 14” and has two non-slip, rubber padded rests that protect the motorcycle’s finish as well as keep it secure and in place while you work. There are also several tie down points, should you want that added peace of mind to prevent the motorcycle from shifting, and the Black Widow Motorcycle Jack even comes with two *quality* ratchet tie down straps. A padded hydraulic foot pedal raises the bike, and there is a safety locking system that secures the lift at heights of 9”, 11-7/8” or 13-7/8”, depending on what works best for you in your shop. A pair of rear swivel caster wheels let you turn and pivot your motorcycle for the best access, and a 27” handle helps out, too, though the handle is removable if that gets in the way during maintenance.
We’ve sold this very same motorcycle jack to custom motorcycle shops who have been pretty darn happy with the Black Widow Lift, so you know it’s a nice piece of equipment for your own garage, too.
And winning one for your very own is as simple as a few clicks (and maybe some good campaigning to get the most votes!). Bear with us as we continue to promote for more entries to the Road Warrior Photo Contest in this next week, since you are sure to see more of our posts, but don’t put off submitting your own entry any longer!
Here is a new item we added to Discount Ramps.com
The MX Pop-Up Lift allows you to quickly and easily elevate the rear of a 125cc motocross motorcycle. Features a easy foot pedal that activates the pop up lift. The unit folds down compact when not in use and locks with a pin for easy transport. Supports 250 lbs yet only weighs 23 lbs! Checkered diamond plate surface helps traction. All steel powder coated finish frame. 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.

At Discount Ramps, we know most of you riders not only ride, but work on, show off, and store your bikes by yourself. That is why we bring you the Black Widow motorcycle and ATV jack. This heavy-duty hydraulic jack/lift can make any work on your motorcycle or ATV much more efficient and easy. Whether you own a cruiser, dirt bike, quad, or sport bike, wouldn’t you like to save time and money by doing your own work, cleaning, or fixing or just not having to pay storage fees? With this hydraulic jack lift, your bike’s frame will be protected by the non-slip high quality rubber pads that are on the saddle of the jack. Once the bike is off the ground on the 2.5 inch by 12.5 inch rubber pads you know your bike is safe from sliding and frame damage while lifting or moving. Another great feature of this motorcycle lift is the spring assisted hydraulic foot pedal with non-skid rubber padding and a foot pedal release valve that lets you keep two hands holding the motorcycle or ATV steady while lifting or lowering. The high quality rear caster wheels have ball bearing swivels and adjustable stabilizing screw down legs which prevents the motorcycle jack from moving while they are down. If you own a quad or a bike, Discount Ramps would like you to see for yourself how easy maintaining a machine is when it is on your level. No more bending down to get at hard to reach areas or the drive chain.
The product number of this motorcycle jack is Model# BW-JACK. This lift features a 1,500 pound weight capacity which fits virtually any bike. Also, this lift has an integrated tie-down strap loop system (straps are included). The 3 inch by 4 inch spring assisted rubber padded foot pedal allows you to keep your hands on the motorcycle or ATV without much bending of the body. The lift has rear caster wheels with ball bearing swivels (14 inches wide wheel to wheel) for easy transportation and a removable 27 inch long jack handle to make the ATV/motorcycle jack even easier to move around your garage or shop. The safety lock arms have three locking positions to ensure your safety along with your bike or ATV. The hydraulic lift can raise bikes from 4.75 inches to 16.5 inches in height quickly and safely.

Discount Ramps recently added another motorcycle jack to our existing dirt bike motorcycle jack products. The new jack is called the RIDE-ON-MX-LIFT and it is specifically designed for allowing a dirtbike to be driven on to the jack thus allowing the rider to utilize their feet to quickly engage and lift the bike without the tedious setup that is typically associated with most other motorcycle jack systems. The RIDE-ON-MX-LIFT was definitely designed with the rider in mind as it is one of the best solutions for one person to get their dirt bike on a stand. Below you will find a short video clip of this motorcycle jack and how it is operated.
A few other important things about this motorcycle jack is that the jack itself is made of steel that has been painted/treated with a durable black powder coat finish. The top of this jack, where the dirt bike will rest, is equipped with an injection molded rubber pad surface to protect the steel and its powder coat finish from being damaged by the bike from years of lifting and jack usage. Below you will see a close-up image of the rubber surface.
Another feature of this motorcycle jack is the detention pin system that allows the lift to be locked in place for extra safety while allowing the handle mechanism to be detached thus allowing the jack to be less bulky and easier to store when not in immediate use. Below, you can see how the pin system works with the handle and the jack stand set in the locked position.
If you are interested in finding out more details about this motorcycle jack (designed for dirt bikes) or if you would like to make a purchase of this jack you can find the full details and features on our main website by viewing the RIDE-ON-MX-LIFT Product Page.
