Expert Answers about Rage Powersports

  • Scooter/Cycle Carrier for Class A Motorhome and SUV
  • The only motorcycle carrier we offer that is approved for use on the rear of a motorhome is the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979033. The carrier itself has a 500 lb capacity, so it will easily handle the weight of your scooter, but you will be limited by the capacity of the receiver its used in. You will need to ensure that the receiver on your motorhome and SUV can handle the weight of the scooter plus the approximate 50 lb weight of the carrier.

  • How Does Hitch Tongue Weight Rating Affect Use of a Motorcycle Carrier on a Toyota Sienna
  • The lowest-rated component in a system determines the overall capacity. The 1-1/4- and 2-inch hitches we offer for the Toyota Sienna have a maximum rated tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. This is true for all model years from 2010 through 2013 (I checked several since I do not know your specific year). I have provided a link to our page for all Class III 2-inch hitches for the 2013 Sienna to illustrate some examples. I have also linked an article on hitch classes and capacities. The...

  • What Carrier Would Be Used for a Dirt Bike on the Front of a Truck
  • In determining whether or not a rack on the front of your Ford F250 truck to carry a dirt bike will work, you have a lot of variables to consider. First and foremost, although your hitch will support 600 pounds, you have to check your owners manual to find out what weight your axles will support. If you determine that your truck does have the capacity to carry your dirt bike while taking into consideration the weight of the carrier, I would recommend the Rage Power Sport Carrier part...

  • Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier to Haul a Yamaha WR250 Behind a Four Winds Class C Motor Home
  • As long as the trailer hitch on your Four Winds motorhome has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity, you will be able to haul your Yamaha WR250R motorcycle, however, the Rage PowerSort Motorcycle Carrier, # MX600, that you referenced is not recommended for use behind a motorhome. Instead, I recommend looking at the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033. This carrier only weighs approximately 50 lbs, has a weight capacity of 500 lbs, and is approved for use behind motorhomes. The total...

  • How to Carry a Motorcycle with a Toyota RAV4
  • I have a solution for you, but most hitch mounted motorcycle carriers require a hitch with a tongue weight capacity rated 500lbs or more. After doing a little research, I found that the tongue weight capacity of the base and sport models of the RAV4 is approximately 150 lbs and the tongue weight capacity of the limited model is approximately 350 lbs. I would not recommend using any hitch mounted motorcycle carrier on a 2006 Toyota RAV4 to carry your 325 lb bike because the vehicle cannot...

  • Solution for Cargo Carrier that Blocks License Plate
  • The legality of an obscured rear license plate varies from state to state. If you want to heed the letter of the law, the plate can be relocated to the rear of the cargo carrier. We sell quite a few cargo carriers, and to be honest, it is really not that much of an issue. You could zip tie the plate to your carrier, or use a bracket with a light like part # LPL55CB (In most states, the rear license plate is required to be lit after dark). If your vehicle has a trailer connector,...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation to carry a 2012 Vespa GTS Super Scooter on a 2012 Ford F-150
  • The Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier, # SMC600, that you referenced is an excellent choice to carry your 2012 Vespa GTS Super Scooter with your 2012 Ford F-150. This carrier fits in 2 inch trailer hitch receivers and has a weight capacity of 600 lbs. Your scooter will weigh roughly 340 to 350 lbs, so you should not have an issue. The aluminum carrier track, steel frame and wheel chock make this carrier much easier to use than carriers with removable pin tracks. I have attached a video...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Motorcycle Carrier For New Honda Ruckus
  • The hitch mounted carrier I recommend for your Honda Ruckus is the Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier, part # MX600. In my research I found the Ruckus weighs about 195 lbs and has a wheelbase right at 50 inches. The rear wheel measures just over 5 inches on the Ruckus. The # MX600 will hold a motorcycle that weighs up to 600 lbs. The track on this carrier is 5-1/2 inches wide and 74-3/4 inches long. It also features a ramp that is 60 inches long. For added security I recommend...

  • Is There A Motorcycle Carrier Available That Will Fit a 1-1/4 Hitch On a 2005 Ford Explorer
  • To use the Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier, part # AMC400, or any motorcycle carrier, you would need to install a Class III 2 inch hitch on your 2005 Ford Explorer. I would recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75132, which has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. The OEM or factory 1-1/4 inch hitch that is on your Ford Explorer does not have the capacity to support a motorcycle carrier and motorcycle. The Draw-Tite Hitch will install below your factory 1-1/4 hitch and will...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Motorcycle Carrier for a Yamaha TW200 with 7 Inch Wide Rear Tire
  • The front tire would fit but the 7 inch back tire will not fit on the Rage PowerSport Aluminum Double Motorcycle Carrier, # AMC6002. Modifying the carrier would void the warranty and there is no guarantee that it would work. You could use the Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier, # SMC600. The platform is right at 7 inches wide so it would be a tight fit. This is the carrier that is most likely to work with your Yamaha TW200. I have included a link to a video review of this carrier for...

  • Trailer Recommendation to Carry 2 Honda Metropolitan Scooters
  • You have a couple of options to carry your 2 Honda Metropolitan scooters. The best option, and by far the safest and what I recommend, is to put the scooters on a small trailer such as # TLK864. In addition to it being the safest and most stable option it will also put much less stress on the tow vehicle. I have linked a video review of this trailer as well. We also have Rage carrier # AMC6002. It is designed for dirt bikes but you might be able to use it for the scooters. I say might...

  • Motorhome and RV Compatible Motorcycle Carrier
  • We do not recommend the Rage Powersports Motorcycle Carrier, # MX600, because the manufacturer, Rage Powersports, says that their hitch mounted motorcycle carriers should not be used on a trailer or motorhome. If you would like a motorcycle carrier that will work on a motorhome, I recommend looking at the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033. We were informed by Ultra-Fab that it is okay to use this carrier on a motorhome or trailer. The reason some hitch accessory manufacturers...

  • Availability of Hitch Motorcycle Carrier To Carry Honda Metropolitan Scooter on Rear of Motor Home
  • I do have an option to carry your Honda 50cc Metropolitan scooter behind your Winnebago motor home, if the hitch has at least a 500-lb tongue weight capacity, but it is not the Rage Powersports Motorcycle Carrier, part # MX600. The Rage motorcycle carrier # MX600 is not recommended for use behind a motor home or a fifth wheel trailer. Most of the platform style motorcycle carriers are not recommended for use behind a motor home because that much weight being loaded onto the back of a...

  • 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 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. Another option and...

  • Anti-Rattle Device for Rola Cargo Carrier On a 2012 Chrysler Town and Country with Class III Hitch
  • The anti-tilt bracket # ANTI-TILT-REV would be a tight fit based on the pictures you have included of your 2012 Chrysler Town and Country. A better option would be anti-rattle device # 93347 if your Rola cargo carrier uses a threaded hitch pin. Or # SHP2082 if it does not require a locking hitch pin.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Scooter Carrier for a Forest River Sunseeker Class C Motor Home
  • Ultra-Fab has a carrier that might work for. They state that it can be used behind a motor home. Take a look at # UF48-979033. The trailer hitch on the motor home will have to be rated higher than the combined weight of the carrier (50 pounds) and the scooter.

  • Would the Rage Powersports Double Motorcycle Carrier Carry 2 Dirt BIkes or 1 Street Bike
  • The Rage PowerSport Aluminum Double Motorcycle Carrier # AMC6002 that you referenced has a 600 lb capacity so as long as your 2 dirtbikes weight less than that you should be fine. Most dirt bikes weight less than 300 lbs a piece but if you have a dual sport dirt bike you will need to be sure. I would recommend you weigh each bike to be sure that they weigh less than a combined weight of 600 lbs. For your street bike that weights 450 lbs this should work very well for you. I would...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier to Carry a 2003 Yamaha Vino Scooter
  • On scooters like the Yamaha Vino, the rear brake is close to the ground because of the small tires on the scooter. This can cause interference with the carrier so I do not recommend it for your scooter. What I recommend is a carrier with a ramp link # MT70260. This carrier is 50 inches across and 30 inches front to back. The ramp is 60 inches long and this carrier will be much better at holding the scooter than a motorcycle carrier. I have included a link to a video review of this carrier...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Honda Grom on a 2016 Honda Pilot
  • The Rage motorcycle carrier part # MX600 that you referenced would be a great option as it has a 600 lb capacity which would be more than enough for your 2015 Honda Grom that weighs 225 lbs. As long as the hitch on your 2016 Honda Pilot has a tongue weight capacity above 500 lbs this setup would work well for you. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

  • Hitch Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 KLR 650
  • The Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier # SMC600 will work in the hitch of your 2012 Honda CR-V that has a 525 lb tongue weight rating. This carrier weighs 100 lbs though so you would be left with 425 lbs of capacity for the weight of your 2014 KLR 650. Which from my research weighs 435 lbs. Since that would put you over capacity a better option for a motorcycle carrier would be the part # MX600 with weighs 35 lbs les.

  • Can I Use 2 Inch Hitch Adapter With Rage Motorcycle Carrier On My 2010 Mazda Tribute w/ 1-1/4 Hitch
  • I do have a solution for you to carry your motocross bike on the back of your 2010 Mazda Tribute, but I cannot recommend using a 1-1/4 to 2 inch hitch adapter to carry the Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier, part # MX600. Whenever used with a hitch adapter or extender, the tongue weight capacity of your hitch is reduced by half because of the increased torque put on the hitch. Instead I recommend changing your hitch to a Class III 2 inch hitch, like the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch...

  • Can Rage Motorcycle Carrier Handle a 2014 Triumph Thruxton on a 2016 Toyota Tundra
  • I can tell you that we have yet to hear about someone losing a bike while carrying it on the Rage carrier # SMC600. If you take the necessary precautions (securing the bike properly and using some ratchet straps between the carrier and the truck, and don't just rely on the hitch) then all will be well. The weight carrying tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch must be greater than the combined weight of the carrier and the bike. The carrier is about 95 pounds and the bike you said...

  • Motorcycle Carrier for a 530 Pound 2013 BMW R1200GS Motorcycle on a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The Rage motorcycle carrier # SMC600 weighs over 90 pounds so it combined with the motorcycle will exceed the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. Motorcycle carrier # MX600 is lighter at about 65 pounds and has a 600 pound capacity so it would be the better option. But you also have to look at the vehicle capacities and not just the hitch. The combined 595 pounds could exceed the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle. The owner's manual shows that at most the tongue weight capacity...

  • Will A Suzuki DRZ 400 Bike That Is 88 Inches Long Fit On Rage Hitch Cargo Carrier, # AMC6002
  • The overall length of the tracks on the Rage Powersports Hitch Cargo Carrier, # AMC6002, is 75 inches. I looked up the wheelbase on a Suzuki DRZ400 and it was around 60 inches and the overall length was around 88 inches. The curb weight on the bike was 320 lbs. The bike will fit on the carrier with the tires overhanging about 6-1/2 inches on each end. This hitch cargo carrier fits 2 inch trailer hitches and has a weight capacity of 600 lbs. The weight capacity will be determined by...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for Yamaha Zuma 125
  • The Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier, part # MX600 would work great for your Zuma 125 with the following provisions: The carrier itself will have no problem accommodating the approximate 200 lb weight of the scooter, but you will need to be sure that the 2 inch receiver on the van has enough tongue weight capacity to handle the weight of the scooter plus the 64 lb weight of the carrier. Your hitch should have a sticker that lists its tongue weight capacity. The carrier will...

  • Motorcycle/Scooter Carrier to Carry Honda Helix Scooter Behind Jayco 24 Foot Camper
  • We do indeed offer a carrier that is suitable for carrying a small scooter on the rear of your travel trailer. The UltraFab MX Hauler, part # UF48-979033 has a 500 lb capacity. This being said, the carrier is only recommended for use with a hitch having a 500 lb tongue weight capacity. The carrier can accommodate scooters with tires up to 5 inches wide, and includes a ramp for loading and unloading the scooter from the side. We unfortunately do not offer a carrier that raises and...

  • Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # 75699 that you referenced would work well on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and would also allow you to carry the Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier # MX600 so that you can carry your 245 lb motocross bike. The hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. The carrier weights 65 lbs and your bike weighs 245 so you would be well under the capacity for the hitch.

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Harley Davidson Sportster
  • The Rage Motorcycle Carrier part # SMC600 that you referenced has a 600 lb capacity so it would have more than enough capacity for your Sportster that weighs 517 lbs. The only issue will be the tongue weight capacity on the hitch of your Jeep Wrangler. This carrier weighs right at 100 lbs so you would need to have a hitch on your Jeep that has more than 617 lbs of tongue weight capacity.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Dirt Bike Carrier for Fifth Wheel
  • The Rage PowerSport Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2" Hitch Receiver is not recommended for use behind a Fifth Wheel trailer or motor home because it will bounce too much at the back of a fifth wheel, like you suggest. That much weight loaded onto the back of a trailer that long can cause real safety issues. Ultra-Fab has a carrier that might work for you. They state that it can be used behind a motor home. Take a look at # UF48-979033. With the combined weight of the carrier (50 pounds)...

  • Will the Rage PoweSport Motorcycle Carrier # SMC600 Carry a Honda Reflex Scooter

It looks like your scooter has a dry weight of approximately 375 lbs and a wheel base of approximately 60 inches. This motorcycle carrier has a weight capacity of 600 lbs and the track is 78-3/4 inches long. This is one of the best motorcycle carriers that we offer for scooters with low ground clearance.
