Default Harbor Freight Self Centering Wheel Chock

I bought a roll over center locking wheel chock from Harbor Freight for my 13 CCT. It looks like if I roll the front tire onto locking wheel chock that locking device will hit the back of my front fender. Does anyone have experience with this brand of center locking wheel chock? Does it hit the back of the front fender? Is there a self locking wheel chock on the market that is better for the CCT? Thanks

I'm using one of my 2012 XCT. There is no clearance issues with the front wheel. I'm sure if you backed the rear wheel into the stand the fender would be damaged.
If doing lots of wrenching I make the bike more stable using a tie down.


OOPS... me bad. on reviewing the item we are talking different stands. I'm using this one, sorry

I think the Harbor is a copy of the BikePro which I have. It does not hit the fender.

The Harbor Freight model will hit your front fender. Rolls both of the lower corners up.

The Condor Pit Stop aluminum stand works great. My buddy has a couple of them and I used one to haul my CC 10 hours back from Indiana. Fits perfectly and does not hit the fender or the chin fairing/engine shroud thing. It's not cheap but it's built for a lifetime of use.

I bought a Wheeldock ( http://www.wheeldock.com/catalog/pro...products_id=33 ) a month or so ago. My review of it is a recent webBikeWorld article, here: http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcyc...eldock-review/ . I like it a lot (as you'll note if you get a chance to read the article).

Cheers,

I have 2 Condors. They are amazing. I use it in the garage when I work on the bike. Holds it very steady.

I have this HF wheel chock
http://www.harborfreight.com/motorcy...l#.UzDB-V50GiY
Just sizing it up it looked like it would hit so I made a 3/4" wood filler & glued it into the rocker pan. It just clears the Vision fender. Great value for $60, the $200 Condor's nice too-I got the HF, it's well built, solid, & something that I've only used 3-4 times in 10 years.
I wouldn't buy my power tools there but some of the simple things they have are decent utility grade quality, the other 90% is iffy at best.
