The motorcycle can load and unload from either side of the vehicle, depending on which side you mount the front of the wheel stop to. In this step, you only need to decide which side you prefer.We recommend mounting the wheel stop to the driver's side as it enables the loading and unloading procedure to be completed safely off the passenger side of the vehicle. This is optimal when parked on the side of a road but is entirely up to you and your preference.
(B.) Mount Tire Track and Tie Down Arms
Now, on the opposite side of where you selected to put the wheel stop, insert the rear tie-down arm into the slot and, lay down the tire tracks on the platform & align with the two holes.Insert the two bolts into the tire track and through the holes. Put on the nuts and washers, then tighten snugly to minimize rattling. Do not over tighten.
(C.) Prepare Wheelstop for Tire Size
Place the front tie-down arm in the slot of the platform, making sure the curved section is facing outward.Lay down the two parts of the wheel stop (front stop & backstop) onto the platform, align the holes to the desired placement, then insert two bolts. Put on the nuts and washers, then hand tighten only for now (this is to ensure alignment of the loading ramp in Step 4).Then put short bolt with the lock washer through the backstop and tire track into the threaded hole on the platform tube.(NOTE: Layout is adjustable per your tire’s size, measure your tire and place to size for optimal fit).
