Review of the Yakima ForkLift Roof Mounted Bike Rack on a 2013 Mazda 5


Today on our 2013 Mazda5 we're going to be test fitting the Yakima ForkLift, a fork mount roof bike rack, part number Y02098. With our Yakima Control Towers Roof Rack System already installed on the 5, we'll begin our test fit by placing our bike rack directly onto our crossbars. Here at the front we're going to remove the skewer, slide back the black cover, and loosen the black t-bolt. This will allow us to separate our clamp. We'll then bring the lower portion of our clamp around the underside of our load bar, reinsert the t-bolt in the appropriate slot, and tighten down the black t-handle to secure it. We'll then slide our black cover forward and reinsert our skewer. Here at the rear we're going to loosen the black t-handle and separate our clamp by removing the t-bolt.

We'll then bring the lower portion of our clamp around the underside of our crossbar, fit the t-bolt back into its slot, and tighten down the black t-handle to secure it. With the front and rear secure it's now time to load up our bike. We'll begin by undoing our rear wheel strap and making sure that our front skewer is loose and open. We'll then grab our bike, place it onto the bike rack. We'll guide our front forks down onto our front skewer. We'll secure it here first.

We can then move to the rear wheel and secure it with the strap. Just like that our bike's loaded up and we're ready to head down the road. That will complete today's test fit of the Yakima ForkLift, part number Y02098, on our 2013 Mazda5. .
