it will fit but your rear tire will have to sit on the tail gate, unless you ride it in and front the front tire in either the left side or right side, then your might be able to close the tailgate. i got a 6ft bed in my colorado and i cant fit my bike in it all the way if i angle it.

but im guessing its only a 4ft bed, or 5ft so you will have to leave the tailgate down.

Those ratchet ones break things IMHO.........but if you snug it down good with 4 tie-downs you'll be fine.

cycle cynch up front with 2 tie downs and then you can wrap the rear wheel with a tie down connecting 2 each side of the truck.

I just use my body weight and the pull type tie downs, keep the bike as straight up/down as possible. Two in front and two in back from the passenger pegs or subframe........something that won't bend or break, and you'll be fine. Canyon Dancer or Cycle Cinch...........Motorcycles Unlimited has the Cycle Cinch.

Get the Cycle Cinch, you won't regret it.

Like Clyde said, don't crank down on it too much, you want the suspension to be able to work a bit- you don't want it loaded for the whole trip. I try to load it about half-way or less.

My .02 is to put in in at an angle. Use the Cycle Cinch and use friction straps and load the front end about 1/3. I then use another set of friction straps at the rearset mounts and have them pull tension forward on each side. That should keep your front wheel from turning and will secure your bike for a long ride. I usually put a safety knot on the friction strap so that it won't loosen.

We keep good quality tie downs and Cycle Cinch in stock.

I wouldn't worry about the tailgate being down. I've hauled racebikes and streetbikes all over the country for years with no issues.

If you'd like, come by and we'll show you how to properly tie the bike down.

Careful where you put on the rear ties.... I used the passenger pegs and at the end of the trip they were worn out, to the point that they almost broke. I had to buy a spare set cause of it. I have to figure it out how I'm gonna do the next time.
