I was going to use mine to change the oil tomorrow...if it is that unstable I guess that's not recommended?I can't comment specifically on the PA chock, but the design looks exactly like the wheel chock from Royal Distributing. I own the RD one. I find it works OK, but I always have to adjust the bike to be precisely vertical. Otherwise, the bike tends to slip sideways within the chock and I'm uncertain whether or not the bile will tip over. In short, it's not as secure as a Baxley, which is why you're paying more for the Baxley than this knockoff. Is it worth the money? Yes, if you don't mind the risk that one day your bike might take a nap in the garage.
That might be it -- When I had my CBR250RA I never used it since the bike kept slipping, and it had a 110 front. The CBR650F I have now has a 120, so I'll probably test and see tomorrow.My V7 use 2.5 x 18" front wheels with 100 / 90 - 18 tire. Maybe this tendency is due to my particular wheel and not the chock.
Been using my $40 harbour freight chock for over 5 years. Street bikes, race bikes, mx bikes. Works great. I think it's similar to rhe PA one.I must have gotten lucky.My blue one from pa is solid.It gets used for the Muffin at the track.And in the garage it has held the Couchrocket (900lb) just fine.Baxely is way overpriced for what it is.But i'm just a cheap old cranky guy.
It's not about luck. The blue one is the one made by Cerka, it's a solid chock. I've been using mine for 2 years now and not a single issue.I must have gotten lucky.My blue one from pa is solid.It gets used for the Muffin at the track.And in the garage it has held the Couchrocket (900lb) just fine.Baxely is way overpriced for what it is.But i'm just a cheap old cranky guy.
Those look awesome. Like those ones at blue streak that are like $500. Haha.I went back there to day and the chock was gone. The guy said that they are discontinued, and the last one was sold on December 2013.
Anyways, the PA in Kitchener had a set of aluminum stands for a good price, in case someone is looking for a pair. Good to have at the track.
