That's how much the stand weighs. The problem with the Harbor Freight stand is that it holds the bike by supporting the bottom bracket (part where the peddle crank goes through) and the down tube (tube from the fork to the bottom bracket). Unfortunately on most motorbike builds the muffler hangs in front of the down tube so you cannot support a motor bike on this type of stand. Unless you wish to remove your muffler every time you work on your bike, I'd pass on this stand.

Most likely the best type of stand to use with a motorbike is the type that clamps to the seat tube. Park tool makes several models that will work.
