10 Best Dirt Bike Stands 2019

Best Dirt Bike Stands

When choosing the best dirt bike stand for your needs, you first have to decide where you intend to use it, the home workshop, the track or trails where you ride, or both.
It has a big bearing on the type of stand you choose.

Some of the dirt bike Lift Stands in this review are compact enough to work great at the track and the garage, so the one stand will have you covered.

Motorcycle Stands come in 4 Basic Types:

Trangle MX stand The Triangle stand: The simplest and cheapest, but doesn’t lift the wheel off the ground. Motocross bikes don’t come with a side stand, so a dirt bike triangle stand is a quick solution.

 

 

Black Widow Aluminum MX Dirt Bike stand The Static or Fixed stand: These aren’t height adjustable, you have to lift the rear wheel up and slide the bike on. These also come in folding types for ease of transporting.

 

 

Bikemaster Easy Lift & Lower Stand  The Lift Stand: Height adjustable with a lever to raise one or both wheels off the ground. The best dirt bike lift stands have an adjustable deck.

 

 

Pit Posse Motorcycle Dirt Bike ATV scissor Floor Jack lift raisedThe Hydraulic Scissor Lift Stand: Allows you to lift the bike up to a standing working height, but better suited to the smooth even floor of a workshop.

 

 

If you’re a regular dirt bike rider, the ideal setup is to have a lightweight fixed stand for outdoors, and a more substantial adjustable lift type stand for the garage.

Triangle stands are the easiest to use and don’t require any lifting, however, Fixed Stands or Lift Stands are necessary to get one or both wheels off the ground for tasks like removing a wheel for tire changes.

While a Lift Stand makes it easy to get the bike raised, they’re not always as sturdy as a fixed stand and don’t usually have a quite so large top plate with a hole for draining the oil during oil changes.

Top 3 Things to Consider When Selecting a Dirt Bike Stand:

  • Sturdy construction. You want it to safely support your bike without too much movement. The load capacity is something to be aware of, but most are designed for loads way in excess of the weight of a dirt bike.
  • The Range of Height Adjustment. If you are looking for a lift stand, the minimum and maximum heights are critical. An adjustable top deck is an important feature.
  • The Price. Fixed stands are generally pretty inexpensive, but your budget is something to consider when getting into the more complex scissor type lift jacks.

I’ve included stands here from $39 up to $261. All the stands in this review have overwhelmingly positive reviews from users.

Let’s look at these stands in more detail.

1. BikeMaster Easy Lift & Lower Stand

Bikemaster Easy Lift & Lower Stand

The BikeMaster Easy Lift & Lower Stand is my top pick for Lift Stands. It has all the things you are looking for in a lift stand, and all for a very competitive price.

The deck height is fully adjustable so that you can fine tune it to suit your bike perfectly. It spins up or down on a threaded bar, so you just slid it under your bike, adjust the deck height, and lock it into place with the screw lock nut.

The bike can be spun around with the lock nut loosened, but for stability, it’s best to lock it.

Then with one push down on the lever, your bike is up. It will comfortably raise one wheel or two off the ground.

For safety, there is a lever lock which secures the lever in the down position, which will prevent accidental disengagement when the bike is on the stand.
The anti-slip pad is essential to stop your bike slipping off the stand.

When lowering your bike, the damper shock slows its descent, which is a great feature to have.

This lift stand is portable enough to be taken with you to the trail or track.

Features

  • Maximum lifting weight is 330 pounds (150 kgs)
  • Damper shock controls the descent of the bike so that it doesn’t freefall when lowering
  • Fully adjustable deck height so you can make it suit your bike perfectly
  • Durable anti-slip pad helps prevent your bike slipping off of the deck
  • Lowest collapsed height 9 3/4″ (248mm), highest collapsed height 14 1/2″ (368mm), Lowest extended height 13″ (330mm), highest extended height 17 3/4″ (450mm) which makes this stand very versatile
  • Lift lever lock for added security in the raised position

Pros:

  • Good Height adjustment range
  • Sturdy steel construction

Cons:

  • Lifting Capacity is a bit on the low side

2. Pit Posse Dirt Bike ATV Scissor Floor Jack

Pit Posse Motorcycle Dirt Bike ATV scissor Floor Jack Lift

Pit Posse Motorcycle Dirt Bike ATV scissor Floor Jack lift raised

 

The Pit Posse Dirt Bike ATV Scissor Floor Jack is at the top end of the lift stand scale. It allows you to raise your bike to a comfortable working height.

The stand lowers to 13″ (330mm) and simply rolls under your motorcycle on the wheels, and can be pumped up to a comfortable working height, the maximum height is 36″ (914mm).

Once you’ve got your bike at the height you need, you can lock the wheels.

The last thing you want is to have the bike fall from that height, so there are some important safety features:

There are loops to attach tie downs to the bike to secure it, and a safety pin which slides through the frame to prevent the bike lowering unexpectedly.

The deck measures 13 3/4″ x 16″ (350mm x 406mm) and has an anti-slip rubber pad and a drain hole which is for doing your oil changes. Because it is a collapsible scissor jack there is no tray, so you will have to hold a tray under it to catch your oil.

The load capacity is 300 pounds (136kg) and the stand itself weighs 63.8 pounds (29kg). It comes with 2-year Manufacturer Warranty, very important when buying a Lift Stand of this type.

Features

  • Maximum weight capacity: 300 pounds (136 kg)
  • Minimum Height: 13″ (330mm), Maximum Height: 36″ (914mm)
  • 2-year Manufacturer Warranty
  • Heavy Duty steel frame construction
  • Deck size: 13 3/4″ x 16″ (350mm x 406mm)
  • Item weight: 63.8 pounds (29 kg)
  • Wheels to allow easy mobility, which lock into place for stability
  • Safety Tie Down loops and locking pin to prevent accidental lowering

Pros:

  • Good working height
  • Safety features

Cons:

  • Workshop use only
  • Potential for instability due to the working height

 

3. Trackside Steel MX Box Stand

Trackside Steel MX Box Stand

The Trackside Steel MX Box Stand would have to be the best value for money fixed MX stand available. Priced at around $40, it’s bang for your buck.

Being constructed of steel it’s not as light as the Black Widow MX Stand at number 5 in this review, but still very suitable to be taken to the track or trail, and used in the home workshop as well.

While the manufacturer doesn’t give a load capacity, given that the design is almost identical to the aluminum Black Widow MX stand which has a huge 1,500 pound capacity, you would assume that this stand must be more than capable of supporting any dirt bike you can lift onto it.

The powder-coated finish is a bonus to help resistance to corrosion and ensure it stays looking good for a long time.

The large drain hole in the top platform makes doing oil changes easy, the only thing missing is a removable tray for tools or an oil pan, but for the price, you can slide any tray you want under it.

Features

  • Height: 15 3/4″ (400mm)
  • Durable anti-slip rubber pad
  • Steel construction for longer life
  • Powder coated finish which protects the steel and always looks good
  • Large drain hole for easy oil changes
  • Color: Black

Pros:

  • Great value for money
  • Sturdy steel construction
  • Powder coated finish

Cons:

  • No removable tray
  • Not Height adjustable

At just over 6 pounds it is extremely light as the name suggests, but is able to support a staggering 1,500 pounds, which is way more than you’ll ever need, but good for peace of mind.

Summary

Choosing a suitable dirt bike stand for your bike is really a matter of deciding where and how you intend to use it.

The Fixed Stands are popular with motocrossers because they are light, stable and allow you to quickly lift the bike up and slide the stand under to work on between races.

They are generally more stable than the Lift Stands, especially on the uneven ground at a motocross track.

The Trackside Steel MX Box Stand is the most cost-effective fixed stand with ‘Bang for your Buck’.

The adjustable lift stands are more suited to the workshop, although the more compact types are light enough to take with you to where you ride, which means you can get away with one stand.

The BikeMaster Easy Lift & Lower Stand is my top pick for the Lift Stands. It has all the things you are looking for in a lift stand: Fully adjustable, safety features, damper shock – all for the best possible price.

I have covered a broad range of all types of Dirt Bike Stands in this review from  $39 right up to $261.

All the stands in this review have overwhelmingly positive reviews from users. Just click the links to read what people are saying about them.

  1. Hi Greg,

    Thanks for your review on dirt bike stands. I have recently gotten into dirt biking and now with your review I’m one more step in the right direction. There is tons of stuff that I still don’t know, but looking around your site, I don’t think I’ll have trouble finding them out. Thanks again.

    David

    1. Hi David. Great that you’re getting into dirt biking. Yes, there’s lots to know about. You’ll find an answer to anything you need somewhere on my site.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Greg

  2. I am not an expert on this field, but I think the best is the BikeMaster Easy Lift & Lower Stand, it is good for stand the bike and also to lift it if necessary, supporting  330 pounds of weight is useful, right? and it has only one Cons, and I like it 🚲

    1. Hi Maria. Yes, the BikeMaster is my top pick for features and price. Most have a capacity way more than you need. There’s so many good stands available today.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Greg

  3. There’s a wealth of knowledge here and it’s all plain and simple stuff making it easy to read and even easier to make a decision. I had know idea there were so many variations to consider. My KDX has stood on just about everything and fallen from them all too I might say.I love nothing more than going dirt bike riding but I leave most of the mechanical stuff to my mate, I know he’s going to love this post and i’m sure there’s a stand here for him and maybe it time for me too.Cheers and thanks mate

    Paul

    1. Hi Paul. There’s a stand to suit every bike and every use here. There are so many to choose from it’s hard to know. Glad I could be of some help.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Greg

  4. This was a very good and thorough review of the 10 best dirt bike stands.  I have to say that the price points on these stands are great, with the most expensive being less than $300.  I would have guessed just by looking at some of the lift stands that they would cost more.  I have to say that my favourite would be the BikeMaster Easy Lift and Lower Stand, the ease of just pushing a lever is a big plus, as well as the sturdy steel construction. The safety features like the anti slip pad, and lever lock are very important.  I like that this stand is portable too, eliminating the need for 2 stands.  

    1. Hi Jenny, yes the BikeMaster is an excellent stand for a great price. There are lots similar, but not at the same price. If you can use one stand for at home and one away, that saves you some money.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Greg
