Looks more suited for dirt bike tires than sportbike tires. Just from the site pictures, I didn't see any pictures of them changing sportbike tires.

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

Seems a bit flimsy. I use the one from harbor freight on car tires. It's beefy, but you need to buy an attachment for bike tires.

If you want something quality check out nomar.com.

I had posted that a while back. I ended uphaving a stand fabricated for me at a local metal shop. Here's a pic... 8" steel tube and 1/4" steel plate on each end. I bought an old rim for $10 to use as a platform for my wheels. Cost me $90 for everything....

That Nomar.com...they have some good stuff there. I purchased the mount/ demount bar, A static balancer and a couple of patented tire irons with rubber tips so your rims don't get scratched....they call them spoonbars.
