Does a 2011 R1 fit in the back of a short bed Toyota Tacoma

Hello - As the title says, does a 2011 Yamaha R1 fit in the back of the short bed Tacoma? I am planning on purchasing one in the north east and bring it back to Houston.

Thanks,

Not too sure about difference with lengths on the R6 and R1 but here is my 08 R6 on a Tacoma.

The Tacoma that I am going to rent is a double cab(4 door), Is the bed length the same?

Thanks,

I was thinking the same. Do you think the tail gate holds the 'weight'?

Should be. My Tacoma is just an access cab too. You should be fine, just make sure it's strapped down nicely. Get canyon dancers if possible.

Just looked at the Toyota website. The access cab bed length is 73.5 where as the double cab is 60".

I guess, I have to keep the tail open.

Thanks guys..

depends on generation
1st gen tacoma (up to around 2003 or so) only had the short bed for the 4door cab. short bed is about a foot shorter than the standard bed.

2nd gen tacomas come in all sorts of configurations, so you can get a standard bed with the 4door cab.

Thanks for the reply.

Assuming that the truck that I am going to rent is a short bed, 2011, will the bike fit (with or with out tail open)?

Thanks,

Thanks,
your welcome. others say its fine. have you thought about possibly renting a uhaul motorcycle trailer isntead of pushing it up ramps onto the truck bed? fyi, i've never loaded a bike onto a truck or trailer. good luck finding the best option for the new bike!

It should be able to hold the weight but double check your tailgate cables to make sure they aren't frayed and what not. I rigged up some extra wire ropes to help when my ZX14 tire would rest on my tail gate...

You do realize that shipping will probably cost you less right?

Yes, But I have to fly to Cleveland,OH for some meetings around that time. If I get the bike shipped, it takes about 15 business days.

Good idea, I will take some extra cables and tie the tail gate just to be sure.

Tail gate usually strong enough to hold the weight of the ramp and the bike going up . You should be able to fit the bike with no problem just make sure its properly fixed and get someone's help loading it
