Most are adjustable for wheel size from cruiser to sportbike, my old zuma even worked on mine and i think it was a 12 wheel.

The issue (for me) of the two Cycle Gear wheel chock I've had are that the back stop the front of the tire rests on and the swivel part that the wheel sits in are not lined up properly. It cocks your wheel if you want it to rest all the way in the front cradle and it makes it fucking hard to pull the bike out. It's to the point where it might even twist and bind your forks as it did on mine. I've taken one back and the next one was exactly the same. I've enlarged the bolt holes to the back stop mount and slid it over a little. This is still not enough for it to line up properly. You'll have to unbolt the backstop, square it up, and weld it on to make it proper. Aside from that it's solid. If you pick one up for $40 and have a way to fix it's flaw, it's a good wheel chock on the cheap.

Checked Mine and it seems strait but i agree it is pretty difficult to get the bike out when it isnt bolted down even more So when it goes In on hot sticky tires
