Anybody got any recommendations for a cheap but effective bike lift suitable for an MT500?

How high do you want to lift it? I use a full length hydraulic lift but shorter scissor type lifts are available as used, for example, by Sportax (see their pics).

I built mine from a set of plans that I bought on ebay. Plans were about a tenner from memory and it is a solid piece of kit & if you have the kit to build one I would recommend those plans.
