Motorcycle "Turntable"

Recommended Posts

Black Marauder

My eldest grandson now owns a 125cc...&because of an incline needs to turn the bike 360 degrees & he saw a turntable type on the "bay" site , I advised him not to be too hasty & see if anyone knows of any others for sale & are some better than others ?

I've had a few, if you have a centre stand this is the best I have found, expensive but mine has lasted years.

The rubber topped ones that are on the market did not last for me.

 

Without a centre stand then these work well.

Hi Wilco I am interested in the Easyturn Turntable but it is expensive . I can't find any reviews or youtube clips for it . Just wondering if it is a reliable buy and would you recommend it.

Yes Eddie I can certainly recommend it. I had a couple of the rubber topped ones from that auction site for about £30 but the centre stand tears them up within a year. This thing is all metal and has lasted several years left out in all weathers and is still going strong.

@Eddie17 I have the metal one as well.  I'd agree with @Wilco that it's an excellent bit of kit.  Saves the hassle of multi-point turns to get the bike into the garage.  Ride in, stand down and flip round.

It's well made and solid.  Would recommend.

Guys ,

             You were spot on its a good piece of kit. Tried it as soon as delivered and it works well . I was a bit apprehensive at first to purchase this when my NC 750, sideways on drive,had only 130mm clearance. Will need to get technique a bit better as I have not long fitted centre stand. No longer need to reverse 20m down drive. 

Thanks for all your recommendations, it is much appreciated .

Eddie

That's good news Eddie. I have very little room as well, I leave the turntable in the same position and mark a spot beyond it that my front tyre needs to stop on to ensure the bike will spin perfectly on th centre stand.

Do these have a lock to stop them turning when you don't want them to?

Thanks. I'm just a bit worried about other people walking out onto the drive and ending up with a broken hip.

Don't worry you can walk over it without it spinning round.

Just bought one, no problems so far. Placed in my garage which is quite small, I marked floor where to place the turntable for optimum turning space in my cramped garage. works well no issues.

I had my doubts about the lazy susans ability to take the weight. However the one one i bought on eblag was rated at 400kg so more than man enought for my 1250GS. I purloined a piece of 3mm thick steel plate and shaped it up on the corners. Then i took an old rubber car mat and glued it to the plate using Evo stick. Once that was dry i trimmed up the edges to suit the plate and voila, one cheap turn table.

Nobody going through their Dads collection of criminal records (that Vinyls to the under 40's) to find a couple they can glue to hardboard? The Spinners sing Max Boyce on one side and Brighouse & Rastricks Songs for a Sunday Afternoon on the other with a coach bolt through worked well.

An appropriate choice would be Mr Wakeman's "Criminal Record" ... :lol:
