This is directed towards those of you with trailers.

  • What track system are you using, and do you have a link to the site?
  • What track accessories did you buy, and how are they working out?
  • For those of you who mounted the spare tire inside, what mount are you using?
  • What did you do about the "ledge" at the bottom of the ramp?
  • Any other mods you want to recommend?

Photos are also appreciated. Thank you in advance!

EDIT: I do have a Harbor Freight chock already. Will the 160 front fit?

As far as the tire fitting the choke, you need to remove the rear piece it will press up on the tire real bad, I took mine off.

e track works

did our trailer with them, lots of cool toys to make things easy . use a bolt locking system to lock chocks and spare with.

This is the chock I have. Has anyone else tried this one? Will it work with the 160 Front (I imagine it will need to be widened to work.)

I tried that one with a stock tire and it didn't work.

If you look at the chokes in the pic you'll see one has the back support and one doesn't the one without it was for my 9 which had a 150 front tire and the other one I left it on because I had another 9 with the stock tire had to take that one off too as it didn't fit rght. None of the chokes will work with L&M fender.

Is that all you use? Or do you strap her down? Don't see myself using just that.

I spent some time with a cutting wheel and cut the rear part of my chock to fit my low and mean fender. now works great with my 160 and l&m fender

Was it too narrow?
Did it not work for some other reason? (I can likely spread the sides wider if it was just too narrow.)

Also, how did you go about figuring where the chock should mount to optimize the tongue weight with the bike loaded?

Front to back distance was to short.

Ah, thank you. I guess I'll be returning it.

It looks as if their "economy chock" is really the way to go...

I had one of these too and the only problem I had was it hit the rotors up front. It wasn't a big deal. No damage done and it worked perfectly.
