Im planning on using your cargo control in my 7x14 in closed trailer. I will be hauling dirt bikes the majority of the time. My original thaught was to purchase nine five foot sections. Running the length on both sides and in the middle. The middle so I can use a strap to hold the wheel back so I dont have to use a wheel chock in the front. Now, should I mount the side strips on the walls to basically hang the bikes or hold them up. rather than on the floor where I will have to compress the forks quite a bit? Also which clips would you recommend for my application? Thank you.

If I were you I would go the route of using a wheel chock like our Rackem Wheel Chock # RA-17 and then use the E-tracks to tie down your bike by compressing the forks.
The other method you described where you said you wanted to hang the bikes could possibly work but most likely if you were to hit bumps in the road your bike might bounce and become unattached and fall.
The E-Track 2 inch D-Ring # E59143 would work well with a set of tie-downs like the Erickson Cargo Tie Downs # 05605. If you are worried about hurting your fork seals you could trim down a 2x4 to the right length and use that between the front tire and the front fender and then tighten down the fender onto the 2x4. This would prevent any undue stress on the fork seals if that is what you are concerned about. Check out the picture I attached to get an idea of what it would be like.
