That lift is for a an HD or other cruiser that has two frame rails at the lowest point of the bike.

As far as the lift goes, I would definitely bolt it to the floor!

I bought one of those lifts when I had a bike with a centre stand, didn't use the wheel clamp but made a timber extension table with a stop block on for the front of the table. I line the bike up at the foot of the ramp, engage first, pull in the clutch & start the motor, ease out the clutch & walk alongside as up she goes. When the front wheel hits the bump stop I switch off & rock it back on the stand, the front wheel is now back on the table. For the ZX12 I have a stand that supports the bike at the swing arm pivot, but I had to fit a wider table top, 700mm I think. Being a mature aged citizen & not so good at pushing bkes around any more, I find the table lift brilliant for cleaning & general wrenching. My knees love it.
As to the tyre changer. the no mar was too expensive to post here but I bought their clamps, MD bar, yellow thing & hand clamps & made my own stand. Works a treat, once you change a few tyres its easy, beats paying to have your wheels scratched.

Nchanga, thanks for the tip. I'll try using the motor to get it up the ramp. I've pushed it up but I had to get a "running start". I've taken off the stock front wheel clamp and installed the HF "Condor" chock. Once captured by the chock and up on a swingarm stand or scissor jack, I can remove the chock's vertical stop and rear cradle and use either a front fork or headlift stand. Works great for solo operation and if you have to remove the front wheel or forks.
