"I had a cheap carrier but I did not trust it with my sport bike, then bought a great box trailer, but then got tired of hauling trailer to track days, with extra gas, bridge tolls for trailers, and having to drive 55 with a trailer. Now I have 1500 Ram Van with MotoTote for ZX10R. Love it!"
The Moto Tote M3 has an anti-rattle bolt that goes, in a 2" receiver, where normally a locking hitch pin can be placed. Thus a locking hitch pin cannot be used. So, I emailed Moto Tote to find out how to lock the carrier and was told that they recommend a locking cable. Sighting that locking the bike, as well as the carrier, is a good idea... so a locking cable makes sense for that.
However, when the bike is unloaded (to ride), I still want the carrier to be locked to the receiver. So, to that end, I asked them how the cable should be routed through the main structural support of the M3. (I asked because the locking cable is about 3/4" in diameter, plus the swedge lock fitting increases it a little, etc..., which means a hole greater than 13/16" (closer to 1") would be required to route the cable through the structural steel of the carrier. Basically, there isn't a hole big enough to do it (and drilling a bigger hole would put the structural support, itself, at risk)). Moto Tote has yet to answer my question.. and they have had plenty of time to respond (as I asked them repeatedly)... Essentially, they have ghosted me.
At the end of the day, the M3 is a great carrier (I like it a lot), but due to Moto Tote's lack of interest in answering my question, it seems that it lacks the ability to be securely locked to a receiver. And, it appears, at this point, Moto Tote is unwilling to address this issue.
If I could remedy this situation, I would ask Moto Tote to eliminate their anti-rattle bolt and increase that hole location to allow the use of a normal locking hitch pin. Then, I believe I (and others) could use another after market anti-rattle devise that goes between the carrier and the receiver, to eliminate any rattle.
If I still want to lock up the bike, I could use a cable lock routed from the bike directly to the receiver's chain attachment point and that would secure the bike to the receiver, as well.
I hope Moto Tote does something to address the locking carrier to receiver problem... Increasing that hole's diameter, is something to think about Moto Tote.
Thanks for your review and feedback. We are glad that you are pleased with your carrier. Regarding our lack of a timely response, we apologize and acknowledge it. We are small team, and your request slipped through the cracks. We have audited our process to ensure this will not happen again. While we understand your desire to lock your carrier to your vehicle’s receiver, we would like to point out that locking hitch pins are not as secure as you would think. The carrier has several components and can be disassembled from other points just as easily as the hitch connection. We believe the best defense from theft is to use a locking cable. With the m3, we recommend looping the locking cable around the bottom of the platform as the m3 track is our simplest, and has no holes on it. On the Sport, Max, and Max+, we recommend feeding the locking cable through any of the holes on the track. Please let us know if you have any other questions or if we can be of assistance.
Well built , easy to assemble, bike fits perfectly !
I purchased the Sport Motorcycle Hitch Carrier to move my Z650RS (weight approx 412 pounds) across country (2400 miles) from NY to AZ. I installed the hitch carrier to my 4Runner, the zero wobble hitch worked great as there was no sway when driving, even at 80+ miles/hr at some points. The only issue I had with installing is with step 2, attaching the MTX platform to square tube, I would recommend using the torque wrench to complete this step as it took some elbow grease to get it secure and so that it didn't move. When ordering the product I also ordered the sport bike tie down bundle, easy to install and held the bike firmly in place. Highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a solid product to haul their bike.
Everything was perfect…..the product and the delivery services…..unfortunaly in Europe we can not find this kind of motorcycle hutch carrier!
my wife assembled and installed it -- super solid. the rack is nice too. quality parts, finish and hardware. installed the LED light package -- a must. would recommend to anyone.
This is incredible. Super easy to install (20min) loaded and left for a 1600 mile trip carrying my r6. Stable over all terrain even unpaved roads, easy to load and unload solo. Worth every penny. Honestly better than my flatbed trailer.
Great product. Solidly built. Everything fit exactly.
I’ve spent the same amount that I spent on this rack on regular bike racks, and they work perfectly. They don’t shake. I didn’t have to put them together! They even fold up and out-of-the-way when not in use! This thing had shit directions, was a total pain in the ass to put together… because the parts didn’t fit together and still don’t and its clangy and not solid at all. This is not one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. They’re lucky I gave them two Stars.
We're sorry to hear about your not-so-good experience with the MotoTote Sport hitch carrier.
We'd like to point out that the Sport is not a bike rack: It is a carrier for motorcycles weighing up to 600 lbs. If it's shaking then it's not assembled and installed correctly - here are the instructions - https://mototote.com/pages/mtx-instructions. We don't know of a 600 lbs capacity motorcycle carrier that folds up 'and out-of-the-way when not in use!'.
