Very pleased with the purchase. I do wish there were a way to keep the 2 screws with the adapter, A couple extra threaded screw holes would be nice. 132307

  • Comparing Thule Helium Aero 3 and Kuat Alpha Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks for a 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • Hands down my favorite bike racks are the Thule Helium Aero series such as # TH9043. Basically, the rack has a great set of features. It has the integrated cable lock, cradles with road-dampening technology, built-in anti rattle and locks, and it weighs only 19-1/2 pounds. The Kuat Alpha, # A102-Black for 2 inch hitches or # A102-BLACK-114 for 1-1/4 inch hitches is still an excellent rack and weighs just over 14 pounds. If you wanted a rack that would fit both 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches...

  • How to Attach SportRack 2 Bike Rack # A30901 to a 2 Inch Hitch Without Using the Plastic Adapter
  • The Kuat Bike Rack Shank Adapter, part # D101, will only fit the Kuat brand of hitch bike racks. I have the SportRack Wheel Mount Bike Rack Replacement 2 Inch Sleeve, part # 050042, which is the replacement 2 inch sleeve to fit the SportRack 2 Hitch Bike Rack, part # A30901. I do not have any metal replacement sleeve that will work with the SportRack 2 bike rack. I would recommend to use the Brophy 2 Inch to 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Reducer, part # HT02. This reducer will install into...

  • Will the Kuat Beta Folding 2 Bike Rack Fit on a 2011 Subaru Outback
  • The Kuat Beta Folding 2 Bike Carrier # B202-114, is designed to be used with 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver openings. If your 2011 Subaru Outback has a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver opening then this bike rack is considered a fit for your vehicle. If you do not have a trailer hitch I would recommend the Hidden Hitch # 87568, which is a Class III hitch that has a 2 inch receiver hitch opening. It is possible that your vehicle has a 2 inch hitch receiver opening and if that is the case then...

  • Will Kuat Beta Bike Rack # B202-114 Fit On a 2012 Suzuki SX4 Crossover
  • The Kuat Beta Bike Rack, part # B202-114, is designed for a Class I and Class II 1-1/4 Inch hitch. To be able to use this Kuat bike rack on a 2 inch hitch you will need to purchase the Kuat Bike Rack Shank Adapter, part # D101. This adapter will bolt onto the shank of the Beta bike rack. It is not included with the Kuat Beta bike rack. On a 2012 Suzuki SX4 Crossover, I only show the Class I 1-1/4 Inch hitch as a fit, so this Kuat Beta bike rack will install onto your hitch without the...

  • Using Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack # S101 With 2-Inch Hitch Adapter
  • The Kuat Bike Rack Shank Adapter # D101 that you referenced installs on the driver's side of the shank of the Sherpa bike rack # S101 using the included hardware. These bolts should be tightened fully to secure the adapter to the shank. Then once installed in your trailer hitch you will use the anti-rattle device on the carrier to steady it in the receiver tube.

  • Why Don't the Pin Holes of my Hitch and Rack Line Up with Kuat Beta When Using 2 inch Adapter
  • I spoke to my contact at Kuat about the problem you are experiencing and he said that while it may look like the pin holes do not line up the 3/8 inch pin that came with your Kuat Beta 1-1/4 will still fit through. When you use the # D101 you end up pushing the pin hole of the rack up a bit, but the pin should still be able to fit through the hitch and rack.

  • Will the Kuat Beta Trailer Hitch Mounted Bike Rack # B202-114 Fit a 2011 Toyota Venza
  • The Kuat Beta, # B202-114, is designed to fit in 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches, but you can add the Kuat Bike Rack Shank Adapter, # D101, so it will fit in a 2 inch receiver. With the adapter, you will be able to use the rack on either the Venza or the Volvo. You will also need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches, the bike rack will fit. No worries about weight with this...
