  • Will a Harley Ultra Classic Fit on Oldenkamp Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # RHMC1SV

  • Why the Chain is Removed When Towing a Bike on the Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier RHMC1SV
  • I spoke with my contact at Oldenkamp, the manufacturer of the Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier with Jack and Swivel, # RHMC1SV, and he told me that the chain should be removed because there is slack in the chain. When towing the bike, the chain will flap up and down and wear out the chain and eventually the sprockets. This in turn is expensive to fix. So they recommend, when on long trips, to remove the chain. As far as speed, travel at normal highway speeds is fine as long as you ad

  • Shaft Drive Concerns When Towing a 2004 Kawasaki VN750 with Motorcycle Caddy RHMC1SV
  • When your motorcycle is being carried by the # RHMC1SV caddy, the rear end is going to be on the ground, lower than the front end which is supported by the carrier itself. When you lift the front end up, you will be getting more oil in the transmission than during normal use of your bike, so there would not be an problem with the front end of the shaft drive on your 2004 Kawasaki VN750 when using the motorcycle caddy.

  • Can Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Caddy RHMC1SV Be Lowered to the Ground
  • I spoke with my contact at Oldenkamp, and the # RHMC1SV motorcycle caddy should be able to be cranked all the way to the ground, but this does somewhat depend on how far off the ground the hitch on the vehicle is located. The caddy is able to be cranked down about 24 inches, so I recommend measuring from the top of your hitch opening to the ground to determine if the caddy would be able to be lowered far enough.

  • Can Trailer Hitch Mount Motorcycle Carrier # RHMC1SV be Used with a 865 Pound Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad
  • I do not recommend using the Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier with Jack and Swivel, # RHMC1SV, if your bike weighs more than 800 pounds. The construction of the carrier is not rated for more than 800 pounds so it could break when used beyond its capacity or at least render the carrier unusable. The warranty will also be voided. Personally, I would not take the chance with my bike. The best bet is to use a small utility trailer large enough for the length and weight of your bike. You c

  • Leaving Motorcycle in Neutral While Towing with Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier Part # RHMC1SV
  • I have spoken with one of my contacts at Oldenkamp, the manufacturer of the Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier. He tells me that the motorcycle should be left in neutral while it is being towed. With a chain drive bike, he recommends either removing the chain or making sure the chain is as tight as possible if you are going to tow for distances over a hundred miles or so. I would recommend checking with your State Highway Patrol or Department of Transportation about regulations pertaining to li

  • Using Oldenkamp Motorcycle Carrier Part # RHMC1SV for 2002 Honda Goldwing
  • For a shaft driven bike like the Goldwing, the transmission should be left in neutral. Keep in mind, however that the carrier has an 800 lb maximum weight capacity. During my research, the lowest dry weight (without any fluids in the bike) I could find was 815 lbs. Exceeding that weight capacity could cause damage to the hitch, vehicle, and motorcycle and is not recommended. You might be better off using a small utility trailer to tow your bike. It would certainly be safer if your Goldwing we

  • Are Towing Lights Required For Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # RHMC1SV
  • When using the Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier with Jack and Swivel, # RHMC1SV, to tow a motorcycle, the bike will most likely not be wide enough to block the taillights on most vehicles. However, some local and state laws may require the use of supplemental lights anyway, which is a good idea. Check the law in your area to determine if additional towing lights are required. You can use something as simple as the Magnetic Towing Light Kit, # C-ATL20A, if you can find a good place to

  • Will a 2011 Victory Cross Country Fit a RHMC1SV Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier
  • I spoke with my contact at Oldenkamp, and he pulled one of the # RHMC1SV trailer hitch mounted motorcycle carriers from their warehouse to compare it with your dimensions. Unfortunately, we could not confirm this for certain without the actual tire and wheel to test, but it looks like the carrier may work for your application. The fit would really depend on how wide the tire is. If you have a 16 to 18 inch wheel, the tire should be thicker. Since the wheel channel on the carrier is shaped

  • Recommendations for Transporting a Kawasaki KLR 650 From Florida to Nova Scotia
  • The Oldenkamp Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, item # RHMC1SV, is designed for transporting motorcycles when moving them long distances. You should remove the chain on your Kawasaki to prevent damage to it or the transmission. You will want to make sure that you are very careful if you need to back when the motorcycle is attached to the vehicle. Very short trailing items like your motorcycle or a very small trailer can jackknife very easily. To avoid towing something you could use

  • Will Oldenkamp Motorcycle Carrier # RHMC1SV Fit 2007 Harley Davidson with a Solid Front Wheel
  • The Oldenkamp Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, part # RHMC1SV is designed to carry the front wheel off of the ground. The front wheel is attached to the carrier by three ratcheting wheel straps (see included picture) that go through an open wheel. The straps and hardware are going to be larger than the 1/2 inch holes on your 2007 Harley Davidson Fat Boy, so the front wheel will not be able to be strapped down. This carrier will not work with your solid front wheel with 1/2 inch holes.

  • Towing Triumph Rocket III Motorcycle with Oldenkamp Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier Part # RHMC1SV
  • I do not have any specific information regarding the use of the Oldenkamp Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier with a Triumph motorcycle like yours. Oldenkamp tells me that as long as your bike has 16-21 inch tires that are no wider than 5-1/2 inches wide, the carrier should work fine for you. Keep in mind: The receiver should be between 14-22 inches off the ground. Belt and shaft drive bikes are OK at speeds up to 65 mph. If the bike will be towed for longer distances (over 100 miles

  • Will a 2006 Honda Shadow Aero 750 Fit on the Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, # RHMC1SV
  • I had a 2004 Honda Shadow Aero myself that also had a shaft drive. Shaft drive bikes work well in the Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, # RHMC1SV, as long as you only travel at 55 to 65 miles per hour. The front tire on your bike will need to be less than 5-1/2 inches wide to fit in the cradle. This cradle also keeps the bike upright. It may lean some when turning but not like if you were taking a corner while riding it. No additional parts are needed. The forks do not have to compres

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the # RHMC1SV and Can I Use to Tow 2001 Honda Goldwing
  • I have contacted Oldenkamp and they confirmed that the weight rating capacity of this hitch accessory is not to exceed 800 pounds. That includes the total weight of the bike regardless of whether or not some of the weight is transferred to the rear axle. The manufacturer does not recommend using this carrier for bikes that exceed total 800 pound weight limit. In my research I have found that the weight of the 2001 Honda Goldwing is close to the 800 pound limit, and depending on the exact set
