Just loop the strap around the clip ons right above the grips/levers. Put the kick stand up and push down on the fork and tighten starp. Repea this on other side and then go back to the other side and do it a few more times until you have the forks fairly well compressed and the bike feels solid. You should be able to push on the bike and shale it and it wont move at all, the your good. Dont leave it strapped for longer then neccesary cause it is compresing your forks, but this is wha keeps it solid. Cam starps make it easier cause you can just puch the bike down and piul the starp, ratchets are harder to do , especially if your alone, i strap across the back seat helps but isnt neccesary. hope this helps

do as suggested before, use the end of your strap that has the hook, and pull the strap through the closed loop on your hook. then, wrap that loop (that you just pulled through) around your handgrip.

does your truck have tie-down loops at the bootom/front corners of the bed?

No matter how you decide to strap it, you still need to make sure you aren't putting force on the throttle assembly & cables. this means that you want to have the throttle partially open when the bike is strapped down. This is important because otherwise you can inadvertently force the throttle closed (past it's resting point), causing [you got it] damage!

as far as actually strapping the bike down, I would suggest following the following guide. steps 2, 6, & 7 are the ones to pay attention to.

just dont wrap the strap around the grips, thats not neccesary, put them around the clip on bar, its more secure and wont twist your grips
