As long as they dont hook to the car's wheels, it should be good to go.

KLR, <400#.....

Dont trust these ! That KLR weighs in at 518 dry, 825 with the usual rider, and then there is the whole milk crate .....SO close to 1K in weight.

my friend installed a trailer hitch on his mazda 3.

he bought a carrier hitch just like you guys are talking about.

he's also going to load his gsxr 600 on to that hitch/carrier.

What are your opinions so I can show him this thread?

It s GXSR, who cares if it falls off.




























I think he should go to the bigger class....400# is pushing it with a sport bike.

Honestly, I'm a little shocked that someone makes a 2" receiver hitch for a Mazda 3 (or that someone makes a moto-tote that will fit a 1 1/4" receiver)...

he's pretty good with metal since he is a welder, so im sure he knows the limits better than i would.. i told him i was more concerned of the cars rear suspension being completely bottomed out and the car doing a wheelie.




but a mazda3 with a gsxr doing a wheelie will make for a AMAZING video i think no?

I stock the Cycle Country Motorcycle Wedge-Lok Carrier. It's only rated for 400 lbs. Works fine for dirt bikes, I wouldn't trust a street bike on it. It retails for $240.99. $180 for Motohouston(25% discount).
