Wheel chock for cruisers?

Looking for a wheel chock for a cruiser, a Yamaha V-Star. Will a regular chock work or do I have to get a special one? It's for my father in law for Christmas. Long story short: Bought my fnl a used trailer last year for Christmas. Needed some work (strut, lights, and paint) parked it at a buddy's who lived close by to where I bought it because it want road worthy. It was stolen from his house. Fnl bought a new trailer. Wanting to get him a nice chock to mount on it for Christmas this year since I dropped the ball last year.

Yours has no front fender though it looks like. His does. That would be the only fitment problem I can think of.

I know my parents have 2 or 3 from Harbor Frieght and they have a VTX1800, Harley Electra Glide and a Suzuki C50 (I believe). Seems it works for them from what I know

$80 harbor freight ones will work on just about anything. Adjustable for different wheel sizes. Only potential is if you have a stupid long front fender that sticks out past the tires. HF chocks also have eyelets that you can ratchet strap the bike to, plus removable rubber feet so you can use it on a garage floor.

my friend used the 25-35 basic roll-in swing-out chock from HF for his fatboy (loaded front wheel first) so i think it would be adequate depends what you're comfortable with.

http://www.harborfreight.com/self-lo...ock-60392.html

I dont use wheel chock's myself, i just use tow-straps to balance the bike upright/off kickstand.

Also, it might be a good time to mention that this is the best/only safe way to load some ducati's as on some models their oil drain bolt and kickstand mounting point is right next to eachother and i've seen a guy with a really nice ducati who's kickstand broke off at the mounting point and took the oil drain bolt with it and ruined it.

I just picked up a Bike Master roll-on stand from Wild West, works great on my Venture. It came with both a "wide" and "narrow" wheel brace, and with all the adjustments looks like it should be fine for anything from a 15" to 23" wheel.

I use this one in both bikes. It works really well. very handy for oil changes and all kind of maintenance. I use a jack in the rear to raise the bike and the shock keeps the bike very stable.
