Warning and Usage Guidelines
Carrier Carrying Capacity: The MCC-500-F carrier is designed to safely carry 500 lbs
Never exceed the maximum tongue weight rating of your trailer hitch (check the weight sticker on the trailer hitch)
Total hauling weight is calculated by adding the total weight of the motorcycle + 99 lbs (MCC-500-F weight)
Hitch Weight Limit: Most Class III hitches are rated for 500 lbs - Most Class IV hitches are rated for 1,000 lbs
Some vehicles may require air shocks or heavier springs to stiffen up the suspension to prevent sagging
Please check with the dealer or manufacturer to determine the carrying / hauling capacity of your vehicle
Will not work with 1-1/4" Class II or smaller receivers
Well it's sturdy and so it's going to be able to carry 500lbs without a "hitch" for sure.
The price is good and for an item like this that's kind of hard to find, is good news for anybody
who landed on this site.
Customer support is good.
Not a one person Job to assemble and put in.
Took 2 hours to figure out parts and getting all done, but I'm not as mechanically minded, although I've assembled
a lot of furniture in my day. Still took a while.
But now that it's done I've noticed two things. One the ramp is short. That means have to push pretty hard to get it up hill. Certainly better then lifting it, but could be much better if ramp was longer. If I had a do over that's what I'd look for.
The other thing is that the ramp has gaps it in. For me, they are just big enough to get tire stuck in as I'm pushing my bike up. That means I've got to push harder to get enough force to get it out of the rut and to the top.
Should be longer and a flat ramp. Could be made light weight by using a screen mess metal plate.

I was looking at the Black Widow Trailer and thought it looked like an awesome alternative to either hauling a trailer or getting a ramp and running my Yamaha YZ250F up a ramp into the back of my truck and I was about to order it then saw this one that added the ability to fold and lock the empty trailer in the upright position... So I ordered it.
The Trailer and Hitch kit came in 2 boxes and they got to my door in about 3 days. Very impressed except the big box was a little beat up. Then when I started unpacking the parts I noticed the bigger issue, I was missing parts from the box being damaged in shipping. So I called Discount Ramps and they took their time and went through the parts list item by item and wrote down what I was missing. She got the parts shipped out that day and I got them in 2 days. Free Shipping.. I unpacked it and had it assembled in about 10 minutes with 2 pairs of channel locks. I had my bike on it took it for a trip to the track. Very secure during transport. Super Easy loading and unloading.. Awesome Customer Service and Awesome Product. Thanks DiscountRamps.com !!!!
