I was looking at this one too. Did you go for the 800 or 1000lb lift?
Looks like the 800 may be a little too short for the Fazer.

I had the 1000lb one. Bought in 2012, cost £329.99 then.

I’m also drawn to the Eazyrizer. https://on-bike.com/product-category/eazyrizer-original-red-mounts
I like the fact it’s small and you don’t need to buy a bike specific fitting kit (as per the Skylift).
Looks like it might be a bit fiddly to use though.

Personally, I would prefer to have a scissor style bench to keep the floor space as those types are longer when down.
Something more like this:

That’s a point that I’d not considered.
My latest thought is to go for the Abba Skylift as I like the idea of being able to move the bike around.
The only slight negative is the need to have a bike specific fitting kit and the need to remove the swing arm pivot cover every time  I use it.
I’ve got a single garage and whilst I know I can park the bike on the table I still think the Skylift gives me the best flexibility.
Just need to get one at a good price.

robbo:
The fitting kits are only around 18 quid, so not the end of the world. The best feature is as I posted earlier the ability to access underneath the bike. It folds away quite compactly, so you get back your garage floorspace when it's not required.
