Bike rack for MT

Post by Bandit09 » Thu Apr 04, 2019 8:08 pm

Hi guys.
If possible I'd like to get a rack fitted to my motorhome to transport the MT. I'm not sure of the weight, it's a 350? Can this be done, or is it too heavy and therefore needs a trailer? If so what's the best rack to go for. Any help welcome. Cheers.

I suggest that you download (free) the manuals to establish the MTs weight. Whether you can fit it on your vehicle really depends on its capacity. From memory people have done the sums on their vehicles and concluded that MTs are too heavy for a rear rack and a trailer is the only viable option. That said you might easily have a huge motor home able to cope

Mentioning this as it might be of interest to you (not recommending for your specific requirements), some time back on a well known auction site there was a listing for a front mounted carrier, I saved details at the time in a screenshot which if I've shared correctly you should be able to see at:

That's a Dave Cooper Senior Motorcycle Rack, fits big wheel 85cc up to 600cc dirt bikes. (Max 130kg)

Suitable for trials, motocross, enduro, grass track, speed way and small road bikes.

He's just painted it green.

It'll bend with an MT on it if you go over a bump.
