The ramp on this motorcycle carrier tilts down, making it easy to walk your bike up onto the rack. The carrier has a wheel chock that rotates to secure the front wheel in place, keeping your bike from shifting on the carrier. Once the front of the bike is secure, simply lift up on the carrier and slide the pin into place. There is a tie-down hook on the side of the carrier that telescopes out to provide an adjustable attachment point for your ratchet strap, making it easy to secure your bike to the carrier.

Video Transcript for Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier Review

Today we'll be taking a look at and reviewing the Detail K2 motorcycle carrier, part number K2TMC201. This is going to be for your 2" receivers only, to carry a single motorcycle on the back of your receiver hitch. As you can see here, we have it all mounted down and secured to the backside. You can see it's going to be very sturdy. Now the weight's that you can carry as far as your either scooter or your motorcycle go on the back of this carrier is all going to depend on the tongue weight and the rating of your receiver hitch. Now if you have 300 pounds of tongue weight, you'll be able to carry up to 180 pounds on the carrier.

If you have 350 pound tongue weight, you'll be able to carry 225 pounds. If you have 500, 350 pounds. If you have a 750 tongue weight you'll be able to carry up to 450 pounds on the backside. It's going to be nice and sturdy with the chain tie downs on either side, as well as an anti-rattle tensioner here on the back, and your pin and clip here in the receiver. You can see here that you're going to have your strap tie downs that extend out so you can tie down your handlebars on either side. You'll have this one here that retracts on the inside of this tube here with the removal of the pin and clip.

Then you'll place that pin and clip here in this hole here, holding it on the inside of the tube here in the carrier. Here on the driver side you're going to have your permanently fixed chain tie down or strap tie down. That's going to be fully welded and secure. Now we'll go ahead and move up here and talk about the front wheel cradle for your front tire. You can see they're going to have the multiple holes so you can adjust it to whatever size motorcycle tire that you have, whether that be your smaller-wheeled scooters or your bigger-wheel motorcycles or dirt bikes like so. You're going to have your front fixed bracket and then you'll have your rotating back bracket here.

Now on the backside here you're going to see the easy to lift handles. Once you tilt your rack down, you can easily lift it up with one person and place in your pin, which also has a retaining clip here that holds it in place so it doesn't accidentally slide out. If we go ahead and remove the clip, and we'll just set it off to the side so we're not dropping it or holding onto it while we're doing this, go ahead and lift up, pull out the pin, and drop the rack down. When you're ready to put it in place, you'll simply lift up, slide the pin in, place your retaining clip and pin back in place. Now keep in mind that with this carrier, your straps are not going to be included, so if you'd like to obtain those, you can also get it on our website. It's also going to be a good thing to have your bike strapped at the front before you tilt down the back.

That way you're not fighting with it tilting back and forth while you're trying to get the rack up. Now let's go ahead and remove our bike. First thing in removing our bike is we're going to need to remove the pin and clip here on the backside and drop it down. Again, just set off that pin and clip off to the side. Then go ahead and lift up to release the tension and pull out the pin. Drop it down and then we'll go ahead and up front and undo the two straps so we can roll our bike off. Make sure that you hold onto your bike when you undo the straps and the tension. Once the bike pulls back up, go ahead and remove your straps while the front tire is staying held in the cradle. You just need to hold it up so where it doesn't tilt. We'll place our straps in the back of our vehicle. Then simply pop it out of the cradle and roll it down. Now we're ready to hit the track. With this in our garage, we're now ready to place in our motorcycle carrier. First thing we're going to need to do is take the 2" shank and place it into our 2" receiver. Next, take your pin and slide it through the hole. Line up the pinholes. You can see that that is going to slide back and forth with the tensioner screw on the back. Line it up and place it through. Place the safety clip on the other side. Now we'll go ahead and tighten up the tensioner. You can see right now with our tensioner not tight, you're going to have a lot of sway, rattle, and wobble on the back. Let's go ahead and tighten that down. You can use either a breaker bar, a pipe, or some other item that you have. We're going to use a big extension. Go ahead and rotate it around until it's tight and secure. With it tight and secure on the back. You can see that that's going to be nice and sturdy. Now we'll go ahead and hook up our chain tie downs and we'll be ready to hit the road. A few measurements for this carrier is that you're only going to be able to carry up to a wheel that is 4-5/8" wide fitting on the inside of these little grooves here. Next, we're going to go ahead and get our closest distance measurement. You can see that the bracket and the mounting hardware here is going to mate up flush with our receiver, but we're going to go ahead and get the measurement from the backside of the bumper to the closest side of the rack. It's going to be about 4-5/8". Overall distance that we've added to the vehicle is going to be about 22-3/4". Our ground clearance is going to be about 20-1/8". From the bottom side of the receiver tube and the measurement here at the closest part is going to be about 17". Let's see how it does on our test course. Here you see it out on our test course. First is the slalom, which shows the side to side action to simulate turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Next are the alternating speed bumps, which show you the twisting action such as hitting a pothole, road debris, or going over a curb. Finally, we will finish with the solid speed bumps, which show the up and down action to simulate a parking garage or coming out of a driveway. That will do it for our review and installation of the Detail K2 motorcycle carrier, part number K2TMC201.

great rake .a well built product . I put it on front of my 2500hd gmc truck it look like it came with my truck.I pull a 5th wheel camper and I get too take my toy with me, 732970

This thing weighs a lot which makes it a bit of a hassle to carry around and put on the vehicle. But it’s very well built and secure. If you have a tall vehicle, you might want to consider a receiver hitch extension drop. I use a 4” drop and it makes loading a lot easier. A simple lashing strap can be used to secure the back tire. 628268


Comments
Typically, using an extender will reduce the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent, which is why we recommend not using them with a carrier like this. The bike plus the weight of the rack cannot weigh more than 50 of the hitch tongue weight capacity if an extender is used.

This is a fantastic rack and having the rail drop down for loading is a plus. It’s a heavy rack and I’ve added some wheels to roll it to and from my truck. I’ve used this for many thousands of miles without any problem. Used mostly on the front of our truck when pulling our 5th wheel. 519803

Very well designed and built rack. I had previously bought a cheaper rack, made from recycled Chinese sewer pipe. The metal bent when I tightened the bolts. Not so with the Detail K2. The tilting rack is much easier and safer to load than a separate ramp. And the Anti-Wobble device works very well. 540467

The K2 Motorcycle Carrier is an excellent product. It was packed very well and was received with no damage. Assembly was very simple. Just a minor adjustment for the front tire bracket and assembly was completed. It took a little practice to pin the rack loaded, but after a few tries got the hang of it. I’m using the K2 rack on a 2015 Toyota Tacoma with the OEM trailer package 650# tongue rate. Loading is very easy even in tight places. You’ll just need the length of your bike to load. I highly recommend this product it is built well and makes loading a breeze. Thanks George J. for the excellent communications and quick service. 396846

Ask the Experts about this Detail K2 Hitch Cargo Carrier

  • Capacity Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 Explained
    The capacities of the Detail K2 Carrier part # K2TMC201 vary depending on the tongue weight capacity of the hitch it is installed in. They rate it like this to help you prevent overloading the hitch. Also you have to keep in mind that a lower rated hitch is going to allow a bit more flex which would possibly put more strain on the rack as well. I attached a chart that shows how the numbers relate to each other. What you need to do is find out the tongue weight capacity of your hitch...

  • Which Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier is Ideal for Carrying a Scooter
    Since scooters sometimes have a pretty low ground clearance the best motorcycle carrier solution would be the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # K2TMC201 which has a totally flat tray without any raised sections. Also what makes this more ideal for a scooter is that the tray tilts down instead of requiring a ramp which also helps with ground clearance since the transition from the ramp to the tray would be a possible ground clearance issue with a scooter.

    The bike rack with the highest weight capacity that has a ramp that can be utilized is the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 but it can only handle up to 65 lb E-Bikes and I'm not sure if you'd be able to get your bike down that low. We do have the Rola Convoy 1 Bike Platform Rack # 59308, 2 Bike Platform Rack # 59308-2 and the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1460Z-E which would be able to carry your 75 lb E-Bike but none of these have a ramp that fit them so you'd have to muscle the...

  • Hitch Scooter Carrier for 2018 Honda PCX 150 Scooter for Use on Class B Motorhome
    Any accessory that is to be mounted on the back of an RV - either a motorhome like your Class B or on a trailer or camper - has to be made and rated specifically for that type of use. The reason is that the greater distance between the axle and hitch on such vehicles means more leverage (and more stress) will be applied to that accessory item. On passenger cars the axle-to-hitch distance is much shorter, just a few feet, and this of course puts less stress on the items. You also want...

  • Recommended Front Mounted Hitch or Stacked Receiver for Carrier and Towing a Trailer Simultaneously
    The Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier - 2" Hitches - Tilting # K2TMC201 will not allow you to tow a boat behind the carrier as it does not have a receiver. There are a couple of options to give you the ability to transport both. The first option is to use a front mounted hitch for your motorcycle carrier to give you the separate receiver locations and not have to share the tongue weight of both on a single hitch which will have a tongue weight capacity that can't be exceeded.

  • Recommended Motorcycle Carrier or Trailer for Yamaha Majestic 400 Scooter
    For your Yamaha Majestic 400 Scooter, I recommend the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # K2TMC201. This carrier weighs 87 lbs, so you will need a trailer hitch receiver capable of the tongue weight with your receiver. If you do not have this, then I recommend the Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer - 7-1/2' Long - 1,640 lbs # K2MMT5X7 along with the MaxxTow Adjustable, Self-Locking Wheel Chock - 15" to 22" Wheels - 1,800 lbs # MT70271.

The length (side to side) of the Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier, # K2TMC201, is adjustable from 56 inches to 76 inches. The overall width of the carrier is approximately 19-1/4 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.

    For your trip, you'll be able to carry your cycle as long as the total weight of the carrier plus cycle is less than 500 pounds. According to my research, this means that you'll want your Kawasaki KLR 650 to be hauled without fuel if possible, where it will be somewhere in the 400 pound range.This means that your carrier will have to weigh 100 pounds or less to stay safely in your tongue weight capacity while hauling the bike.

    For a hitch height of 24 inches theThe Detail K2 Carrier part # K2TMC201 that you referenced would be able to tilt down and allow your scooter to be loaded. You would not need to use a ramp. You would just need to tilt the ramp down and wheel the scooter up. I attached an install video that shows it being used on a truck hitch that would easily be over 24 inches in height.

  • Can MaxxTow Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 Be Used on Hitch w/ 350 LB Tongue Weight Capacity
    The MaxxTow PowerSport Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier, # MT70101, must be used in a 2 inch hitch that has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs or more so this would not work for you but I do have something that will work. Take a look at part # K2TMC201. This carrier mounts in a 2 inch hitch with no capacity minimums. Please do keep in mind that when using this carrier to transport your dirt bike you will be extremely close to the 350 lb maximum capacity. 245 lb dirt bike + 87 lb carrier...

  • 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...

    The carrier I recommend for your Honda Reflex is the K2 tilt down hitch mounted carrier # K2TMC201 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. I also recommend you...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for the Back of a Class A Motorhome
    RVs and motorhomes have a very long distance between the rear axle of the vehicle and the back of the vehicle. Because of this bumps in the road are greatly exaggerated back there. So anything mounted on the hitch will experience a much harsher ride. To the point certain hitch accessories just aren't rated for it. There is a solution for you though. The Ultra Fab motorcycle carrier part # UF48-979033 is very similar to the # SC2001 and Ultra Fab has assured us that this carrier can be...

Because the Genuine Buddy is so low to the ground, avoiding an angle is ideal. This rack does require that you have a Class III trailer hitch.

Carriers that have a solid track include the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier - 2" Hitches - Tilting # K2TMC201.

If you look around on the internet, you'll see a lot of people are really happy with the Ecohitch, however its position further back and open end means you will be limited on some accessories because their stinger will be too long.

This means that the weight of the bike plus the weight of the carrier you're using can't exceed the tongue weight capacity.
