plenty of clearance with my maddad whisper and stock hangers.







I only have one of the bike carriers on my t2 because with both carriers in the right location the bike carrier hits the rear bumper and being down at school i have to leave the rack on the car at all times.

looks good. how much for that other bike rack?

right now the single rack is just temporary, i actually have to put the other on right now for a ride coming up soon, if i end up deciding to sell you'll be the first to know. I was worried about exceeding the tongue rating but i think i should be under since my new bike is only 38 and my other is 35

Nice. Perfect size for a track trailer. I think I am going to go with the larger sized trailer from HF. The fold up model and 12" wheels. It looks to be decent quality for what it is. Cant complain for $250.

Yeah, the quality is fine for a trailer. Some things there are questionable, but I have had no problems with the trailer.

Two questions for you, sir - Are you using XL exhaust hangers, and, which exhaust system is on your car?

i'm worried i'll need a new exhaust if i get one... a friend of a friend welded my greddy evoII up in his garage so it's fit really nice but there's not a ton of room in between the exhaust and the bumper.

does the curt give the most space for an exhaust or is the hidden hitch also pretty good in terms of muffler clearance?

if i have to get another exhaust i will probably go to a muffler shop and just get whatever cheap dual dip they have.

Bah, never had a SINGLE problem... the cars been sold and now approching 200k on the ODO(I keep in touch with the buyer)... nary an issue... had the clutch replaced at ~90k after towing a LOT of different things, wasn't due to slipping either, the TOB was starting to go and making noise......

Give the subie a little more cred than that man... Unless you've done it, you REALLY don't know whatch you talkin about...mang...

no pics yet but i added 2ft onto my trailer this past weekend (now 5x10) and we threw my 400ex on as well as my buddys 700 grizzly which is huge and weighs close to 700lbs gased up, the massive 140hp 2.2L tugged them around fairly well, we're taking them about 2 1/2 hrs away this weekend riding so we'll see how she does, i'll get a pic up too

we figured total weight was right around 1300lbs, not as much as some have towed on here but it was enough for the 2.2L

i have a question for all of you with atv's and trailers

I am planning on buy two Yamaha raptors which are 64" L x 42" W.

I want to also get a utility trailer and just put plywood as a flooring.

Question: What size trailer will fit two atv's plus a lil space for gas tanks? Thanks

Good lord, after a few beers, you know someone would want a ride in those seats while the vehicle was moving!
