Your vehicle's ability to haul with a motorcycle rack varies depending on your vehicle's towing capacity and motorcycle weight.
To calculate the maximum weight your vehicle can haul on a hitch, divide your vehicle's towing capacity by 10, then subtract the weight of the MotoTote motorcycle hauler (ex: 62 lbs).
(For example: 5,000 / 10 = 500. 500 - 62 = 438. In this case, a vehicle with 5,000 lbs towing capacity can haul a motorcycle up to 438 lbs with a motorcycle rack).
To tie down to a motorcycle hauler, you will need three tie-down straps. Using two tie-downs, loop and hook the straps around each handlebar and then down to each side of the front tie-down arm. This will wedge the motorcycle in place and provide the stability for the motorcycle. Then with the remaining strap or a specialty tire sling, loop the strap over or through the rear tire. This will prevent the rear tire from jumping out, keeping the motorcycle in place on the motorcycle hauler.
MotoTote motorcycle racks come with everything except tie-downs. Tie-downs are required to secure your motorcycle to MotoTote motorcycle rack. For large motorcycles that block vehicle tail lights, we recommend a light kit to extend the light functions to the MotoTote motorcycle hauler. For additional recommendations for your motorcycle, shop by bike type.
