The dirt bike carrier has a wheel chock that rotates to lock the front wheel, keeping the bike from shifting left to right on the carrier. The tie down hook also telescopes out to provide a better attachment point and to make securing the bike with ratchet straps even easier.

The dirt bike carrier tilts down, making it easy to walk the bike up onto the carrier. Once the front of the bike is secure, simply lift up on the carrier and slide the pin in to place.

  • Trailer Recommendation to Carry a Motorcycle with a 2010 Honda Element LX
  • Since your vehicle has such a low towing capacity you only really have one option for carrying a motorcycle with your 2010 Honda Element. You will have to go with a small trailer since your vehicle would not have the tongue weight capacity for a motorcycle and carrier. Although it's expensive, the best option we carry would be the Magneta Low-Profile Motorcycle Transport Trailer # UMCT1XHD-AM31985. For trailer wiring you are going to want the Tow Ready harness part # 118465. For...

  • Does Boss Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1 Require Lifting Back Of Motorcycle
  • The Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, part # B04100-1, has a ramp feature that does not require you to lift the back of the motorcycle when loading. You simply pull a pin to create a ramp that tilts down to one side so one person can load the motorcycle. The carrier can be adjusted to fit different motorcycle lengths. The width of the motorcycle wheels cannot exceed 4-5/8 inches. The chart below shows the weight capacity of the carrier which depends on the tongue weight...

  • Compatibility of Boss Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1 with 2006 Jeep Liberty
  • If your Liberty has a 2 inch receiver, the Boss Carrier can be used, but the capacity of the carrier will depend on the weight of the bike, the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle and the hitch installed on it. According to my research, the max tongue weight capacity of the 2006 Liberty is 500 lbs. If the tongue weight capacity of the hitch is 500 lbs, the Boss Motorcycle carrier can handle a bike weighing up to 350 lbs. If the tongue weight capacity is 350 lbs, the bike weight would...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Mercedes GLA 250 to Carry a 235 Pound Motorcycle
  • There are a couple of things you will want to check first before attempting to carry the motorcycle on your 2015 Mercedes GLA 250. First, consult the vehicle owners manual to determine the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle. If it is lower than the tongue weight capacity of the hitch then you must go by the lower rating. So let's say that the vehicle tongue weight capacity is 350 pounds just like the hitch # C13197. That means the combined weight of the carrier and the motorcycle...

  • Can the Boss Tilt Down Motorcycle Carrier # B350DCB Accommodate a 1985 Honda XL 250R
  • I spoke one of our contacts at Boss Truck Accessories, and was told that their Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, part # B04100-1 will work great with your XL 250R. The weight of the bike might be another issue. The weight capacity of the carrier is dependent on the weight capacity of your hitch and the vehicle. According to Boss, as long as the hitch AND the vehicle itself have at least a 500 lb tongue weight capacity, the carrier will be able to accommodate your 320 lb bike plus...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Vespa GTV 300 Carried by a Volkswagen Touareg
  • The Boss Tilt Down Motorcycle Carrier part # B04100-1 that you referenced would be an excellent choice for a motorcycle carrier for your Vespa GTV 300 that weighs 350 lbs. This carrier and your hitch would have the capacity for your Vespa and since this rack tilts it would make loading and unloading easy. However, if you wanted a carrier with a separate ramp for loading that would not require you to tilt the carrier with your scooter that has the engine in the rear you might be interested...

  • Does a 2014 Ford F-150 Have Enough Tongue Weight Capacity to Carry a 387 Pound Motorcycle
  • Since there are different configurations of the 2014 Ford F-150, it is going to depend on the specific model. The vehicle will have its own tongue weight capacity, some models may have a higher capacity than others. So knowing that ahead of time will help since it would not help to add a hitch with a high tongue weight capacity of the vehicle cannot handle that much weight as well. So if you can get an F-150 with enough tongue weight capacity without a factory hitch then you could install...

  • Scooter Carrier Recommendation for Use on the Back of a 2013 Leisure RV
  • Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1 is not rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer so it is not going to work for you. But we do have a carrier that is rated for RV use, it is # UF48-979033. Scooters are typically shorter in terms of wheel base compared to motorcycles so you should be able to mount the heavier end of the scooter closer to the center of the carrier which is definitely what you want to do anyway. Also I recommend over securing this set up because...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for use with a KTM690 Enduro Bike with a 5 inch Wide Rear Tire
  • I have a motorcycle carrier recommendation that I think would work well for you, but the Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1 that you referenced will only fit tires that are up to 4-5/8 inches. Since you have a 5 inch wide tire this carrier would not work for you. Check out the Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier # SMC600. This carrier has an 8 inch wide track for your tires that should do well. When using a motorcycle carrier you need to check and be sure that...

  • Using the Boss Tilt Down Motorcycle Carrier on a 1997 Lincoln Town Car
  • I would not recommend using the Boss Tilt Down Motorcycle Carrier on your 1997 Lincoln Town Car. From the research I have done, your vehicle probably has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. Once you add the weight of the motorcycle carrier and weight of the item you are carrying you will probably exceed the limit of 200 lbs. I would recommend checking your owners manual for the tongue weight and trailer weight capacity of your vehicle and looking into a small trailer. If...

  • Scooter Carrier for the Back of an RV and a Burgman 400 Scooter
  • I cannot recommend the use of the Boss motorcycle carrier on the back of an RV or converted Sprinter van in this case. The issue is that this carrier, and most others, are not rated for the additional stress and movement associated with being at the back of such a vehicle. But there is an option that is rated for use behind an RV. It is Ultra-Fab carrier # UF48-979033. It is rated for 500 pounds which is very close to the weight you mentioned at 485 pounds. Please verify the weight...

  • What is the Width of the Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1
  • I reached out to my contact at Boss and gathered a few different dimensions that will help you out. The length (side to side) of the Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, # B04100-1, is adjustable from 56 inches to 76 inches. The overall width of the carrier is approximately 13-1/4 inches from the face of the trailer hitch receiver to the back edge of the wheel tray when it is in the rear-most position. I have attached a few photos showing these dimensions for you to check out.

  • Recommended Motorcycle Carrier for a 2002 Honda Reflex 200 Scooter that Weighs 360 Pounds Dry
  • The carrier I recommend for your Honda Reflex is the Boss tilt down hitch mounted carrier # B04100-1 because it will work with multiple applications including scooters with rear mounted engines. You will need to ensure the tongue weight of your trailer hitch is at least 440 pounds because your scooter weighs 360 pounds dry and the actual carrier weighs around 80 pounds. Note that your scooter tires must not exceed 4-5/8 inches. I added a picture for you to view too. Another option and...

  • Trailer hitch Mount Motorcycle Carrier for a 2013 Zero Streetfighter 11.4
  • For a coast to coast trip I would strongly advise the use of a small trailer. We have a trailer specifically for motorcycles if you cannot find one locally, # UMCT1XHD-AM31985. The benefit of a trailer is that there is much less stress on the vehicle, it is more stable, and easier to load and unload. On the Boss carrier # B04100-1 the ramp goes up and down manually. This is one of the better carriers. You will need to have a trailer hitch and vehicle with a tongue weight capacity that...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier For 1980 Honda CB750 On 2010 Chevrolet Suburban
  • I did some online research and found that your 2010 Chevrolet Suburban has a towing capacity of 7900 lbs. for tongue weight capacity you can figure about 10 percent of the total towing capacity. You will want to consult your owners manual or your dealership to verify the towing capacity of your vehicle. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to determine tongue weight. The Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Carrier, part # B04100-1, has a chart that lists the weight capacity of...

  • Scooter and Bike Carrier for a 2011 Toyota RAV4 V6 with Tow Package

Whichever is the lowest is the capacity you need to go by. The combined weight of the carrier and scooter cannot exceed the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. The Boss carrier # B04100-1 weighs more than 80 pounds so it, combined with the weight of the scooter is likely going to exceed the tongue...

  • Can the Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier Be Loaded From Either Side
  • The Boss Tilt Down hitch mounted motorcycle carrier # B04100-1 can only be loaded from one side. The reason is the adjustable front tire cradle securely grips the motorcycle tire and as a result you will be unable to load from that side. The carrier is designed to load from the right because that is the curb side if you are parking on a street. It is safer to load from the curb side versus the street side.

  • Parts Needed to Carry a Vespa 300 Sport Scooter with a 2014 Toyota Sienna
  • You will need to start with a trailer hitch. For your 2014 Toyota Sienna the most popular hitch is Curt hitch # C13105. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver. It is rated for 350 pounds tongue weight, which is important for hitch mounted accessories. But you will need to consult the vehicle owners manual for its tongue weight capacity and go by the lower rating. From what I could find though it looks like your Vespa plus the weight of any of the carriers is going to exceed...

  • Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for Carrying Dirt Bike with a Mazda CX-5
  • The motorcycle carrier you would want is the part # B04100-1. This carrier should work on both your vehicles and would work well with your 2002 Yamaha YZ250F. For your 2010 Hyundai Tucson you would want the Hidden Hitch part # 87612. The Mazda CX-5 didn't come out till 2013 so I am assuming that is the model you have. It is the only vehicle between the two you mentioned that has enough tongue weight capacity when used with a hitch like the part # 87623 that has a 525 lb tongue weight...

  • Can the Boss Motorcycle Carrier #B04100-1 be Used on a Chevy Express to Carry a 2007 Kawasaki KLR
  • It looks like your KLR 650 weighs around 400 pounds and the Boos motorcycle carrier # B04100-1 weighs about 80 pounds. This would be a combined weight of 480 pounds. It will be close but ultimately less than the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. If the weights check out then this set up will work on your 2007 Chevy Express Van. The same goes for Rage carrier # MX600 but it is lighter at about 60 pounds. The total weight would be around 460 pounds and you would be within the capacity...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a 400 lb Sport Bike with a 200 Series Rear Tire
  • Your rear motorcycle tire is too wide for the Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1. This carrier can accommodate a tire that is up to 4-5/8 inches wide, but yours is almost 8 inches wide. The Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier # SMC600 would be a great alternative. The rail of this carrier is 8 inches wide so your tire will, the carrier has a capacity of 600 lbs, and the included ramp is longer than most so loading your bike will be easy. The combined weight...

  • Can Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1 Fit 2-Inch Front Hitch Receiver
  • The Boss Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # B04100-1 will fit a 2-inch receiver whether it is a front- or rear-mount type. The main concern is that the combined weight of the carrier (about 78-lbs) and the weight of the motorcycle not exceed the carrier's limit or the vehicle's limit. The carrier's capacity will vary depending on the hitch or vehicle tongue weight (TW) limit, whichever is less. Please refer to the linked chart. You will need to check the sticker on the...
