overall its very easy to load, although I find the ramp to be too short, making the angle onto the trailer proper too severe. The bottom of the bodywork scrapes from time to time. I solved this by using my regular 7ft arched motorcycle ramp onto the carrying bracket for the ramp (seen mounted center rear under the rail (where it says Moomba). Then I used the provided ramp from the trailer top to the arched ramp. I'll try to get a photo of this setup next week when I load it up again.

2 people loading is totally easy. one person loading is hard but I use the "engine running, clutch it up" method and it works great.

Why do you still have signal turns for your trackbike?

its still a street bike..sortof.
Up until just recently I still rode on the street with it, swapping the bodywork back and forth. Now I am not interested in street riding at all, and too lazy to remove the rear pegs or turn signals. I may get to them soon though...

best value I found for the money. There are better trailers out there but the price jumps 3x to the next best kind of trailer.

Nice trailer, I also picked up the 4x6 trailer from phatmitze recently and took it to Fontana last Friday. I also run into the same problem of the clearance issue with the lower fairing, but other than that, a great trailer for the money. I am also getting the 3rd rail for single bike transport. Pictures coming up when I get home tonight.

Looking good! Glad you guys like it.

Sports bikes that have less ground clearence can be loaded in a couple of ways.
- Raise the hitch so the trailer bed tilts just enough to flat out the angle.
- Place a piece plywood or small ramp under the loading ramp.
- Remove the lower fairing.

See attached pictures for examples...

Please excuse the Gixxer :icon_lol:

The reason the ramp can't be made any longer is because it stores under the rear section of the trailer. If its made longer, it would stick out when the trailer is folded...

Here are the pictures for my trailer.

Hey Pablo, did you lose any screws for the rails? I did screw them on tight but still managed to lost 1 of them on the way to and the other one on the way back from Cal Speedway. Don't know if the diamond plate had anything to do with it. After I get my 3rd rail, I'm going to loctite all the nuts and screws to be on the safe side.

Looks good Eric.
You didnt move the rails apart to their second mounting location. Hows the clearence between the two bikes bar ends?
Btw, I might have an open box rail kit coming back in next week, I'll email you when I get it, for your additional rail.

I was worried about the clearance between the bar ends of the 2 bikes at first. But after some measuring, we decide to load the 2 bikes without relocating the rails. There's still plenty of room left, no issue with the bar ends at all.

Let me know about the rails once you get them.

funny you should mention that. My buddy (black bike) took the trailer friday to Pridmore's class and afterward we noticed one bolt and 2 nuts missing. I know I tightened everything up nice and snug but when I went back to check them they were all loose. I guess the trailer moving and flexing did that. I also plan to take them all off one by one and loctite them all.

The trailers are selling out quick. Get yours before they sold out.

The next shipment isn't due until June.

thanks shawn. didnt know you were around these parts. call me as i have a question for you, a very important (to me) question, that jimmy was helping me with but he's not proven to be reliable in that way. Its an issue with my needing a copy of a receipt for something I bought, that I dont have anymore. I'll pm/email you. Your phones dont work since you closed the shop to retail business.
