Expert Answers about Kuat

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Forester 2.5i with Factory Hitch
  • For your 2016 Subaru Forester with a factory hitch the Kuat NV part # N102 would be an excellent choice that we would highly recommend. This platform rack is one of the nicest on the market due how it will only touch the bikes you carry at the tires, it's relative light weight for a platform bike rack at 49 lbs, and it's built-in repair stand that isn't found on any other bike rack. You will really like this bike rack. Check out the review video I attached for more info. The Hitching...

  • The Differences Between the Kuat NV Shanks
  • The two different Kuat NVs you are referencing are the 1-1/4 inch version part # N102 that has the curved shank that you described and the 2 inch version that has what appears to be a straight shank part # N101. As long as you have a 1-1/4 inch hitch on your vehicle the # N102 would work well for you. I also attached review videos for both racks for you to check out as well.

  • Will Kuat NV 2-Bike Platform Carrier # N101 Work With Genesis Beach Cruiser with Front Fender
  • Thank you for submitting the photo of your Genesis Beach Cruiser bike. Although the front fender on this bicycle is fairly short it still would contact the tire ratchet arm on the Kuat NV # N101. A better option in a 2-bike platform-style carrier to fit 2-inch hitches is a frame-mount type that secures the bikes at the frame tube. The link provided will take you to our page for all wheel/frame-mount 2-bike carriers for 2-inch hitches. These carriers have a padded arm that secures the...

  • Kuat Platform Bike Rack or Other 3 Bike Rack for a 1988 Toyota Minivan
  • None of the platform bike racks that fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch will hold more than 2 bikes. We do not have a higher capacity hitch available for a 1988 Toyota Minivan, but you can use a hitch mounted rack like the Swagman Trailhead, S63365. This rack will fit in your hitch, is rated for a Class I hitch, will hold 3 bikes, and it will fold down to give you better access to the rear of the vehicle. I have included a link to the instructions below.

  • Will Kuat Bike Rack B202-114 Fit on a 2007 Chevy Cobalt SS Coupe
  • The clearance for bike rack # B202-114 is going to be 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar on the bike rack. To determine if this rack would have enough clearance to fit on your 2007 Chevy Cobalt, I recommend measuring from your hitch pin hole to a point past your bumper and any other items that might interfere with the bike rack installation. If this measurement is less than 10-1/2 inches, the Kuat bike rack would work well for your application. If...

  • Kuat NV Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack with Wheel Mount Cradles 2 Bike Extension for 2005 Nissan Xterra
  • You are partially correct. There will be a 2 inch add-on unit available for the Kuat Aluminum, Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack with Wheel Mount Cradles - The NV - 2 inch Receiver, item # N101. The add on will not be available for the # N102, 1-1/4 inch shank bike racks due to the weight capacity limits of Class I and II receiver hitches. You should have no ground clearance issues with your Xterra when using either of the Kuat NV racks and with the # N101 two inch hitch rack the 2 bike extension...

  • Will the Kuat NV Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Clear the Tail Gate on a 2003 Toyota Tundra
  • On hitches that we have installed on your generation Toyota Tundra we have found that from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to clear the back of the truck is approximately 4 inches. Take this measurement on your truck to determine the distance required. If you will have the tail gate down then measure to the end of the tail gate. With the Kuat bike rack # N101 installed in a receiver it measures 9-1/2 inches from center of hitch pin hole to nearest part of carrier when...

  • Will the Kuat Beta Bike Rack Fit a 2009 Subaru Forester with Class I Trailer Hitch
  • The Kuat Beta trailer hitch mount bike rack, # B202-114, is an excellent rack. Very light weight and it will fit the Class I trailer hitch on your 2009 Subaru Forester. As with any accessory you are going to want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches then the rack will clear the rear bumper. I have included links to an article that explains how to take the measurement and a...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Complete Rear Access on a 2009 Honda CRV
  • We tested the Kuat Sherpa # S101 on a Honda CR-V of the same generation as your 2009 and found that it did not clear the lift gate when folded down. The Kuat NV part # N101 that you referenced might clear, but its a gamble since we have not tested it and it depends also on the width of your handlebars. I do have an option that I can guarantee will clear your lift gate. Check out the Thule Vertex Swing 4 Bike Carrier # TH9031XT. This rack will swing out completely and will give you complete...

  • Will the Kuat NV-2 # N101 Work on a 2005 Volvo S40
  • In order to determine if this Kuat Aluminum Bike Rack # N102 will work on your 2005 S40 you will need to take one measurement. You will need the distance from the center of the hitch pin on your Q5 out to the furthest point out on your bumper. If the measurement is less than 7 inches you should have no problem using the # N101. I attached a review of this rack for you to check out also.

  • Will the Kuat Beta Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2011 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Kuat Beta bike rack # B202-114 is designed to fit 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers so as long as the hitch on your 2011 Honda Ridgeline is a 2 inch the rack will fit the hitch. To determine clearance to the tailgate or bumper you will need to measure from the center of the trailer hitch pin hole straight back to the distance needed to clear the bumper, tailgate, or any other obstruction. If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches then the rack will clear the obstruction. I...

  • Recommended Kuat Platform Bike Rack for 2013 Honda Accord
  • My Kuat representative tells me that either rack should accommodate your wheels with no problem. If light weight is of primary importance to you, the Kuat Sherpa # S101 would be your best bet. The rack only weighs 27 lbs, but has a relatively low capacity of 80 lbs or 40 lbs per bike. The rack will accommodate bikes with wheelbases up to 44 inches. The NV weighs just a bit more, at 49 lbs but has a 120 lb capacity and will handle bikes with up to 48 inch wheel bases. I have linked...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Platform Bike Carrier For 2013 Toyota Venza Carrying 2 City Cruiser Bikes
  • The Kuat NV 2 Bike Carrier, part # N105, has a maximum weight capacity of 120 lbs, or 60 lbs per bike. You will also want to check the wheelbase of your bike to make certain they do not exceed the maximum of 48 inches to work with this bike carrier. For your 2013 Toyiota Venza, I recommend a bike carrier like the Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Rack, part # HR1450E. Although it is listed as a carrier for electric bikes, it should do well with your city cruisers that weigh over 60 lbs each....

  • Hidden Hitch and Kuat Beta Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota Matrix
  • Yes, the Kuat Beta Bike Rack part # B202-114 will install in the Class I Hidden Hitch part # 60898 that you have on your 2007 Toyota Matrix. This rack is Class I compatible and will slide all the way into the opening of your hitch so that the pin hole would line up so that you could pin it in the hitch. I attached a review video for the rack for you to check out also.

  • What is Color of Kuat Beta Rack, Part # B202-114
  • The Kuat Beta, part # B202-114, is finished in a powder-coat that Kuat creatively describes as Black Chrome. Our description of this rack as black in color comes from their terminology. However, the actual color is what most of us would simply describe as grey. If you review the included photo you will see that there is indeed a significant color difference between the cradle assemblies and the powder coated aluminum portions of the Beta. The cradles are black in color. The remainder...

  • Kuat Sherpa Bike Carrier # S101 Having Clearance Issue with 2011 Mazda CX-7
  • The front tire cradles on the Kuat Sherpa Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # S101 are removable. According to my contact at Kuat there are two screws that can be easily removed to allow the cradle to be taken off for those times when you will not be carrying bikes but still prefer not to have to remove the entire carrier from your hitch.

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Ford Mustang
  • Since you are looking for a bike rack that can fold when not in use and you have a distance of 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the rear bumper a hanging style rack that the arms can fold down would be your best option. None of our folding platform racks would clear your bumper when folded. The Thule Helium Bike Rack part # TH9042 would be a great lightweight rack for you to use. It has 14-3/8 inches from the pin hole to the upright mast of...

  • Will Kuat NV 2 Bike Rack # N102 Fit On 2005 Infiniti FX35
  • The Kuat NV 2 Bike Rack # N102 you referenced will fit for your 2005 Infiniti FX35 as long as it is able to clear the rear bumper. You will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole rearwards. The measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier is 9-1/2 inches, so the outer edge of your bumper will need to be that far out for this hitch to work. It also has a tilt-away feature that allows you to access your rear cargo area with the bikes...

  • RV Rated Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Mercedes Sprint Van Motorhome
  • There are RV approved hitch mounted bike racks available, but the Kuat Sherpa part # S101 is not rated for use behind an RV or motorhome. The closest rack to the # S101 that you referenced would be the Swagman Platform Bike Rack # S64663. This is a platform rack that is confirmed to work on RVs and motorhomes. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

  • Compatibility of Kuat NV Bike Rack # N102 with Curt Class I Hitch on 2010 Mini Cooper Convertible
  • The Kuat # N102 is compatible with the Class I hitch used on your Mini Cooper Convertible, and if the weight of each bike is indeed under the 60 lb individual bike weight limit of the rack, the setup you propose should work well for you. I would recommend using something like the Thule Quick Loop, part # TH530 in conjunction with the Curt stabilizing strap, part # 18050. You can close the quick loop in the trunk opening, and connect the hook on the stabilizing strap to the quick loop,...

  • 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.

  • Will the Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack Fit in a 11120 Hitch on a Subaru Impreza Hatchback with Quad Exhaust
  • The Kuat Beta Bike Rack, # B202-114, will work great on your Subaru Impreza Hatchback Wagon with Quad Exhaust. The measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar is 10-1/2 inches on the bike rack and that should clear your rear bumper with room to spare. To be sure you should measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your vehicle to the farthest back part of the rear bumper. As long as that measurement is less than 10-1/2 inches the bike rack...
