Chock it up

Motorcycle wheel chocks can come in handy for a variety of purposes whether it be in your garage, truck, or trailer. Not only do they allow you to store the bike upright which saves space, they’re also great to use while working on your motorcycle or to more securely fasten your bike during transport. Wheel chocks come in a variety of materials, sizes, and styles. There are a few things you’ll want to consider when purchasing a wheel chock.

First, what kind of motorcycle will you be storing? Wheel sizes and fender placement vary quite a bit between dirtbikes, sportbikes, and cruisers. Aside from your motorcycle’s specifics, where you plan to use the wheel chock will play a part in your buying decision too. If you’re planning to simply use a wheel chock in your garage, anti-corrosion coatings may not factor into your decision as much as it would if you were planning to mount one in your truck bed. You’ll also want to decide whether you want the stand bolted down or plan to use it in a variety of locations. To make your decision easier we’ve put together a list of some of the best wheel chocks on the market below.

1. Editor's pick: Condor Pit Stop

This product is a fully adjustable wheel locking chock system that securely supports your motorcycle in an upright position. It can be placed on almost any surface from your concrete garage floor, asphalt driveway, grass, or even sand and gravel, and it will still keep your bike standing straight up. After adjusting to accommodate your wheel size, you just roll it onto the locking cradle until the wheel touches the upright, and the bike is locked in place. The Condor Pit Stop will work on front and rear tires ranging from 14 to 22 inches. Thanks to its aluminum construction the Pit Stop wheel chock weighs only 30 pounds and folds for easy storage. Condor claims its stand is capable of holding machines up to 3,000 lbs. The frame is also pre-drilled for easy mounting.

2. MaxxHaul 80077

The MaxxHaul Standard Motorcycle Wheel Chock is designed to accommodate bike tires from 14- to 21-inch diameter and 3-1/8 to 9 inches in width. This wheel chock features a 7-¾-inch wide pivoting cradle to handle most motorcycle tires and is adjustable to four positions in 1.5-inch intervals. Black powder-coat is used to resist rust and corrosion. The stand can be easily mounted via pre-drilled holes at each corner. 

3. Pit Posse Chrome Permanent Wheel Chock

This motorcycle wheel chock from Pit Posse offers a simple budget-friendly solution for those planning to mount their chocks permanently. This specific model will hold any front wheel that is up to 6.5 inches wide. Pre-drilled holes make this chock easy to mount. Sometimes simple is best, and you can’t beat the price. 

4. Extreme Max 5001.5010

Made of steel and finished with a semi-gloss black powdercoat, the Extreme Max 5001.5010 wheel chock will work in a shop or trailer. This chock is designed to take up minimal room on the mounting surface while providing maximum stability for your bike. This space-saving design is great for storing or hauling multiple bikes or for mounting on a lift. Multiple rear wheel cradle adjustments also allow you to fit wheels of different sizes for stability during storage, transport, or maintenance. Fits 17″-21″ wheels between 3-5/32″ – 7-3/32″ wide. 

5. EGO BIKE Heavy Duty Motorcycle Wheel Chock

The EGO BIKE Heavy Duty Motorcycle Wheel Chock is made of steel and powder coated for corrosion resistance. This motorcycle wheel chock is rated at 1800 pounds which should cover just about every motorcycle out there. The adjustable length wheel chock also accommodates different wheel sizes between 15 and 22-inch diameters. The freestanding design can also be bolted down should you wish and includes eye-loops for securing your motorcycle. 


How to use a motorcycle wheel chock?

Most motorcycle wheel chocks are easy to use. You simply roll the front wheel of your motorcycle into the secured chock and that’s it. Some designs, like the Condor chock seen above, have pivoting trays to more securely hold your motorcycle once it is all the way into the chock. Other designs, like the Pit Posse chock, are meant to be bolted to the floor of a trailer or garage to ensure the motorcycle will be safely supported.

How does a motorcycle wheel chock work?

A motorcycle wheel chock works by securely holding the front wheel of a motorcycle in order to store or transport the machine upright. For transporting motorcycles with a wheel chock, we still recommend using tie-downs to secure your motorcycle in addition to the wheel chock.

What are the differences between a motorcycle wheel chock and a motorcycle stand?

Motorcycle stands serve a similar purpose but are usually not meant to be permanently attached to floors or trailers. Motorcycle stands are also available for front and rear wheels as their method of holding the motorcycle is different compared to wheel chocks. Riders often use motorcycle stands for maintenance at home or trackside as they make wheel removal possible due to how the stand holds the motorcycle.

    The Baxley Wheel chocks from Discount Ramps have them all beat. I have my three bikes side by side so I can check oil level, tire pressure, lube and adjust the chain and it's all in a limited space.

    This isn't a article reviewing these chocks, they are Press Releases. I know that because i worked for Condor and wrote the words in this so-called review. This is a sales pitch for to sell products. And Condor is so hard up for sales, you can always get a better deal because they undercut their own dealers.
