Yakima Roof Rack Review - 2009 Honda Civic

Today on our 2009 Honda Civic we're going to be test fitting the Yakima Q Towers roof rack system. We're using the 58" round bars, part number Y00409; the Q Towers foot pack, part number Y00124; and two Fit Kits, part numbers Y00699 and Y00731. Now I've already pre-assembled three of our foot packs but I want to show you how the fourth one's going to go together. You open the end of your Q Towers pack and you're going to see this gold plate inside. We'll take our Fit Kit clip and we're going to slide that in underneath, being sure that it slides into the slots located on both sides. Then we'll take our tumbler, slide up through. Now it's only going to go in there one way.



Rhino Rack MountainTrail Roof Bike Racks Review - 2009 Honda Civic

Today on our 2009 Honda Civic, we're going to be test fitting the Rhino Rack Mountain Trail. This is a fork mount roof bike rack with part number RBC035. We've already got the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System installed on the Civic, so we'll begin our test fit by placing our bike rack directly up onto our cross bars. As we do, we'll want to bring the two black rubber coated metal straps around the underside. We can then remove the black cover and set it back here and fit those straps into the head of the carrier. With both of them fit in, we'll now take the Allen tool, tighten the one Allen key that we have here on the front. This is going to simultaneously tighten both of our straps, securing the front of our rack to our front cross bar. With the front secure, we'll replace our cover, then we'll move to our rear clamp.



Kuat TRIO Roof Bike Racks Review - 2009 Honda Civic

Rate your transcript OrderClientKevin BrossRef #20519Order #TC1048317425 Today on our 2009 Honda Civic, we're going to be test-fitting the Kuat Trio. This is a roof mount fork-clamp bike rack in the black and chrome. Its part number is TR02.We've got the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System already installed on our Civic so we're going to being our test-fit by placing the rack directly up onto our crossbars. We're going to take one of the two black rubber-coated metal u-bolts. We'll place it up here at the head of the carrier and then we're going to thread on two of our cylinder nuts.One of the cylinder nut is going to have a hex head. The other side is threaded.



Thule Sprint Roof Bike Racks Review - 2009 Honda Civic

Today on our 2009 Honda Civic, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Sprint. This is a roof rack mounted fork clamp style bike rack. It's part number is TH528. We've got the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System that we've already installed on the Civic, so we'll begin our test fit by placing the rack right up onto our crossbars. As we do this, we want to make sure that the black rubber coated metal straps on each clamp go around the underside of our bars and that the top of our clamps are sitting right on top of the crossbars. We'll then bring those metal coated straps, or the rubber coated metal straps rather, around the underside, fit them into the indentations and then tighten the black levers here on the rear. For the initial tightening process, having them straight out is going to be the quickest way to take up the slack and then you'll cam them over into a lever position to give you a little more torque. With the front nice and secure, we'll move to the rear and essentially we're going to repeat that exact same process.



Swagman Upright Roof Bike Racks Review - 2009 Honda Civic

Today on our 2009 Honda Civic, we're going to be test fitting the Swagman Upright, this is a frame clamp style roof bike rack with part number S64720. We've already got the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack system installed on the Civic so we'll begin our test fit by placing our bike rack right up onto our crossbars. Here at the front, we're going to bring a U-bolt around the underside of the crossbar and fit up through the head of the carrier and then we'll thread on two wing nuts. We're just going to do these loosely for now to give us a little bit of room to position our rack, we're going to put a second U-bolt through the other side here and we just want to have a little bit of play so we can move it forward and back if we need to. All right, take our wing nuts thread them on this U-bolt as well. I've taken a quick look underneath the rack here just to make sure that our U-bolts are spaced about the same and everything looks square. We'll go ahead and tighten all four of them down. All right with the front secure, let's move to the rear.



Yakima FrontLoader Roof Bike Racks Review - 2009 Honda Civic

Today on our 2009 Honda Civic, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima Front Loader. This is a wheel clamp style roof mounted bike rack, it's part number is Y02103. We've already got the Yakima Q Towers Roof Rack System installed on our Civic, so we'll begin our test fit by placing our bike rack directly up onto our cross bars. Here at the front, we'll have the two outside portions of our clamp on the front side and the one middle portion of our clamp will be on the back side of our crossbar. Bring that down and over. You can let the rack sit there in the middle and tighten it, it will automatically center, but to make it a little easier on us, I like to pull back on it, so that the front portion of the clamps are right up against that bar. We'll then tighten down the black T handle, bringing the rear portion of our clamp up to meet our bar and then tighten that right down. With our front secure, we can now move here to the rear.

Honda Civic Questions

  • All three of these platform bike racks are very similar when compared to one another. There are some differences though that I will outline to give you a better idea of what each has to offer and what might work best on your 2007 Honda Civic. To start with, all carriers can carry two bikes, but they all have a different overall capacity in terms of weight. The Swagman XTC-2, # S64670, has a capacity of 35 pounds per bike, or 70 pounds total. The Swagman 2 Bike Carrier, # S64650,...

  • For your 2016 Honda Civic the Curt Hitch part # C11604 has been confirmed as a fit and would work great for you. This hitch was just released and is brand new.

  • I spoke with my contact at Optronics and was informed that the Lumen Difference between the # STL22RB and the # STL72RB LED tail lights is not tested by Optronics. I was told though that the more LED lights that are in the tail light the brighter the light will be whether the description says super diode or not. I have personally installed the Sealed, 6-1/2 inch Oval LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light, 10 Super Diode, item # STL72RB, on a CornPro 24 foot car hauler and...

  • To flat tow your 2004 Honda Civic you will need vehicle specific base plates, a tow bar, safety chains, a supplemental braking system, tow wiring for your Civic, and a wiring extension. For base plates, I recommend a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit. If your Civic is a Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2236. If your Civic is a standard model, not SI, SIR, or Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2234. I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 to use with the Blue Ox baseplates. The...

  • The Curt Class I hitch you've looked at, part # C11604 would work perfectly for carrying a bike rack and two bikes on your 2016 Honda Civic Sedan. Drilling will be required to install the hitch, but as you can see from the installation instructions that I've linked for you, the installation isn't terribly difficult. The # 18050 stabilizing strap would hook into the gap at the top of the trunk lid, just behind the rear windshield. If you look at the video I've linked for you,...

  • When equipment is installed on the roof of a vehicle, wind noise will occur. It is unavoidable, but you can do certain things to minimize the noise. The round bars used with the Yakima rack system you mentioned can be quieted to some degree by using a fairing like part # Y07049. Keep in mind, the fairing will help streamline the rack itself, but whatever is placed on the crossbars like a cargo basket, box or ski rack will cause further turbulence and therefore noise. Using...

  • The base plates we offer for the 2005 Honda Civic are specific to the version of the car. Since you do not have a hybrid, SI or SIR model you can use Roadmaster EZ Base Plates # 521537-1 which have removable arms that will help prevent bumps to your shins. The written instructions and an installation video are linked for you. All of the base plates we offer for the various versions of the car cost pretty much the same. There is no entry-level base plate that costs substantially...

  • I did some digging and found that the Curt trailer hitch # C11391 does fit the 2013 Honda Civic Sedan si model so you can use it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be using the hitch for something like a bike rack or cargo carrier you will need to make sure that the accessory is rated for use on a Class I trailer hitch. Class I trailer hitches are limited to 2 bikes maximum. Curt recommends the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050,...

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro, part # Y02624 would be an excellent choice for your 2008 Civic. The KingJoe Pro is very easy to use, and actually looks good on the back of a vehicle. Keep in mind that the rack has a 70 lb weight capacity. I will provide a link to the install instructions as well as a link to a product demonstration video

  • Starting with a trailer hitch mount, it is the most stable way to carry bikes on a vehicle. It is also easy to load and unload the bikes when compared to a roof rack set up. There are many bike racks available but on a 2003 Honda Civic sedan you are limited to carrying 2 bikes at most because all of the hitches available for the vehicle, see link, are Class I hitches that can only support 2 bikes. For this set up you would need to buy a hitch and a bike rack. On a trunk mount,...

  • Yes, we do have hitches that will fit a 2007 Honda Civic SI 4-Door. I recommend the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, # 60822. It comes with a ball mount, pin and clip. I have incldued a link to the isntallation details and a link to a video showing a typical installation.You would just need a properly sized ball, like # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter) and trailer wiring. For wiring, use Upgraded Circuit Protected Taillight Converter Hardwire Kit, # 119179KIT....

  • While there are people that flat tow the 2012 Honda Civic automatic, I have found that Honda states that the vehicle should not be flat towed. You will want to consult the owners manual to verify the flat tow-ability of the vehicle. If the owners manual says not to then I do not recommend going against what Honda says. If you find that the vehicle can be flat towed then there are 5 items you will need: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking....

  • The bike rack that I would choose for your 2013 Honda Civic sedan is the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Rack, # TH9006XT. This bike rack uses support pads with a flattened surface that will make better contact with your trunk over the round pads on the Passage bike rack. The Gateway bike rack uses molded rubber pads that will last longer than the soft rubber pads of the Passage bike rack. If you will be keeping the bike rack attached to your vehicle for extended periods of time, it is...

  • I contacted our representative at Hidden Hitch about the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 60834. The representative at Hidden Hitch informed me that the thickness of the tubing for part # 60834 is 3/16 inches. The arms of the hitch that connect to the frame of the vehicle are 1/2 inch thick. This is a Class I hitch and is intended for light duty use as it has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. Part # 60834 includes a drawbar, pin and clip. If you plan to do light towing,...

  • Yes, the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2, # Y02624, and 3 bike model # Y02625, both fit the 2009 Honda Civic 4-Door sedan. I have included a picture showing the KingJoe on a Civic. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes I recommend using the Tube Top adapter bar, # Y02531, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included a link to a video showing how the adapter works.

  • If you look at the photo one of our customers submitted, you'll get a better idea of how the SportRack # SR1003 roof rack and the # SR1116 Short Roof Adapter fit together. Because your vehicle is a coupe and there's not a second set of doors at the rear of the vehicle, without the short roof adapter the crossbars would mount so close together, they couldn't be used for anything. The adapter provides side rails and another set of clamps that allow the rear crossbar to be moved...

  • The SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack # SR1002 will mount to the naked roof of your 2010 Honda Civic such that the crossbar spread (measured from the center of one bar to the center of the other) is 25-inches. This rack uses square crossbars that offer broad compatibility with a wide range of roof-top accessories, including cargo boxes, bike racks, kayak carriers, etc. You will want to keep the 25-inch crossbar spread in mind as you consider cargo boxes since they will indicate...

  • The SportRack Trunk Mounted Bike Carrier, # SR3152, has not been determined to fit certain vehicles. However, this bike rack is a lot like the the Thule Passage, # TH910XT; which will fit your 2006 Honda Civic. So it is likely that it will fit, but I cannot say that it is a definite fit. Sportrack is Thules economy brand. If you think about it terms of good, better, best, the Sportrack model is good, but the Thule Passage 2, # TH910XT, is better. The Sportrack is designed to...

  • The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805 is designed to be able to fit your 2015 Honda CR-V. A technical note for the bike carrier states that the lower hooks will need to be replaced with the Saris Hatch Huggers for Bones Trunk Mounted Bicycle Carriers, part # SA3035 when installing the Bones on your 2015 CR-V. I have attached a link to a product review video for the hatch huggers you can check out.
