LOUIS Motocycle Lifter "Liftstick":
This practical jack enables you to lubricate and check the drive chain without fancy lifting devices, even on motorbikes without a centre stand.
Simply place the Liftstick under the swing arm, secure the hand brake lever with the strap supplied and turn the centre-piece to raise. The motorbike will stand on the front wheel, sidestand and Liftstick, while the engaged brake prevents it from rolling away.

- Tried and tested a thousand times over!
- Not suitable for choppers with sidestands that project a long way out, due to the leverage
- Dimensions when lowered approx. 31.5 x 9.5 cm, weight approx. 1,000 g
- Max. load 100 kg

Louis Liftstick recommended by "Reise Motorrad" magazine
"Every so often we come across ideas that make you think: Hmmm - simple, but ingenious! The Liftstick from Louis is just such an idea. It makes for much easier maintenance of chain and sprockets - in fact, without the Liftstick it would be an impossible job on motorbikes that do not have a centre stand.
Very sturdy, easy to use, and unbeatable value because it costs a fraction of the price you would pay for any centre stand plus installation."
"Motorrad News" magazine tested the Louis Liftstick in its 02/2010 issue and rated it as follows:
"The Louis Liftstick makes chain care with the bike on the sidestand so much easier. The neon yellow Liftstick is placed under the swing arm; then the threaded rod is rotated to extend the Liftstick and thus raise the rear wheel. For safety, the hand brake lever has to be engaged with the strap supplied. The rear wheel can now be turned by hand, making chain care a breeze. At not quite EUR30, this bright yellow tool makes life a lot easier."
