Review of the Kuat Sherpa Hitch Bike Rack on a 2013 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2013 Honda Pilot, Ill be showing you to install and operate the Kuat Aluminum Hitch Bike Carrier, part number S102. To install the carrier, slide the shank into the opening of the hitch and align the pin hole, put the pin through the pin hole, lock and turn the black knob located at the base of the carrier to engage the anti-rattle device. Now lets go over some clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and the vehicle fit together. There is about 19 inches of ground clearance. The closest part of the vehicle to the closest part of the carrier is about six inches. We have added about 16 inches to the overall length of the vehicle.

To load the bike, push the gold handle located at the base of the carrier and pull the carrier towards you. Fold the frame hook out and release the cradle straps. Set your bike in the wheel cradles and adjust the frame hook just before the front caliber. Secure with the cradle strap. To access the cargo area, again push on the gold handle located at the base of the carrier and tilt the carrier towards you.

This will allow you to have access to your cargo door. Thats it for todays test fit on the Kuat Aluminum Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier, part number S102 on this 2013 Honda Pilot.
