4 Stars great product

Darrell from ID wrote (February 23, 2015):

everything was there and was easy to put together. There were no holes to mount ramp on the inside. Looks like a good quality setup.

5 Stars Love it! Exactly what I wanted

Jon from CA wrote (February 18, 2015):

The construction quality is very good. Its light weight which is awesome! Its easy to load my bike and its easy and quick to put the carrier on and off my SUV. I highly recommend it for carrying a dirt bike.

5 Stars Can't come close to building anything like this unless you are a fabricator!

MIchael from TX wrote (February 11, 2015):

Built my own out of steel i-beam 13 years ago. was super strong and stable but it was so heavy I quit using it. When I was building it out of scrap I was wishing I was an aluminum welder so I could make one but then the cost of materials would have been ridiculous. You simply cannot beat the price and quality of construction. Even if this wears out in 2 years I will gladly buy another one and sell the scrap to recyclers haha.

5 Stars Best dirt bike carrier ever

Kevin B. from CA wrote (January 24, 2015):

I bought another AMC-400 carrier. I was out of dirt biking for a few years and now that I am back, this is the ramp of choice. I have recommended this carrier to my female dirt biker friend and she is liking this carrier as well. This carrier is light weight, strong and safely secures the bike. I feel confident that my brand new 2015 KTM ECF 350 is safe. Discount Ramps is a great place to shop and have fair prices. Thank you. Lifetime customer.

5 Stars Great ramp at a good price...

Took the ramp on a 1500 mile trip from N.Y. to Florida and back. No problems whatsoever..

5 Stars AMC400

Tom from IN wrote (January 15, 2015):

I sent an E-mail asking them to contact me via e-mail when they got the product back in stock, as they were out of stock when I was shopping. They responded in just a couple days. I ordered it, received a tracking code. It arrived just when estimated. Works great behind my mini van, hauling an XR650 Honda. The stabilizing feature keeps the load from moving even on rough roads. Great product!

5 Stars Motorcycle carrier 400#

Tim Closs from TX wrote (January 15, 2015):

I bought this to mount on the back of my RV to haul My wife's Honda scooter. It works great, the ramp makes it a no hassle load. The rack is light which helps with my RV hitch capacity and was no problem to install.

5 Stars Just as I expected...

David from NY wrote (January 14, 2015):

Delivery timing was as promised. All bolts and hardware were included and secured despite a fist sized whole in the box. The AMC-400 was easily assembled at the point of pickup and I was able to drive away with it installed on my hitch.

5 Stars Great Carrier

Mike from TN wrote (January 14, 2015):

I tote a 400cc KTM. Carrier is sturdy, stable and very easy to use. Bike fits on my Toyota FJ Cruiser WITH the spare tire still installed.

5 Stars Very well built carrier

David from TN wrote (January 14, 2015):

The carrier arrived on time. Included parts just as stated in the description. Instructions were included and the video on the web site made assembly a breeze. Very good quality carrier. Holds my Suzuki DR200 very well, no wobble. I also use the carrier to transport my Prodeco electric mountain bike.

4 Stars A good ramp for little money

Fletch Newland from WA wrote (January 11, 2015):

When needing to replace my Harbor Freight ramp (it got hit by a car), I looked into this one. It was essentially the same kind of money but is a good bit more ramp. It is far more stable and the moto rocks far less side to side when loaded. All in all, it does what it is supposed to and is quite affordable. I use it for my KTM's - 250 and a 690 that kitted out weighs 325 dry. Handles those no problem.

5 Stars Perfect for Dual Sport weekends!

Larry from GA wrote (January 11, 2015):

My DRZ 400s weighs just over 300 lbs so I was a little concerned about how the carrier, the hitch and the F150 would handle it. Also, I needed to be able to load and unload by myself. I'm just under 6' so loading was easy. I first attached a short tie-down to rack then clutched the bike up the ramp. MAKE SURE IT'S IN NUTRAL BEFORE YOU STOP THE ENGINE. I attached the ratcheting ties to the handle bars an the subframe. Can definitely tell there is weight on the back the bike didn't twist or shake at all. Unloading is a little harder. While holding the bike with left hand I pulled the back tire backwards to the get the front out of its "pocket". I have no negative things to say but I have a whole season of Dual Sport and off-road riding ahead!

5 Stars great bike carrier

Perfect- for my Motoped Mountain Bike nice and light-easy to put together- easy to store in garage

4 Stars Nice ramp at a great price....

Brian from NY wrote (November 03, 2014):

We purchased a small Yamaha V star 250 for my wife which was located out of state. The bike weighs 325lbs. so I decided to buy a small carrier instead of a one shot rental. The assembly was very easy (about 15 Minutes total) and the ramp is very light. I did have a bit of and issue with the hardware that is supplied with the carrier. They are not high quality bolts and nuts and I could easily have stripped them out. I will replace them for a few dollars just for piece of mind. I guess a street bike sits a tad lower than a dirt bike and I had a problem where the frame of the bike made contact with the carrier as we were loading right where the ramp and carrier meet. The ramp would actually have to be longer to get around this. We fortunately had another helper who lifted the bike a bit from the rear and we cleared the carrier. Just be prepared and see if you can raise the ramp prior to loading. Very happy with the 400 mile trip and how the carrier performed. I did check on the bolts on the anti-rattle device they include and tweaked them twice during the trip. Overall the carrier is worth the money due to compactness and light weight.

5 Stars Great option for low cost carrier

KTM_Dude from WA wrote (September 26, 2014):

I don't have a pickup or a trailer, but my riding buddies do so I just needed something for mostly short hauls, this carrier is actually very sturdy and I would have no problem doing a long haul with this. A couple of key items not clear from the description - the receiver portion is actually steel, and the aluminum tray bolts to that. The piece included to prevent rocking works great. It is a steel collar with 4 bolts that tighten up the whole system in the receiver and really cinches it up. I added nuts to the 4 bolts to make sure they don't vibrate loose. Set the bolts, then tighten the nuts tight against the collar (on the first 100 mile haul they did not come loose, but I am a bit OCD when it comes to this sort of thing). The ramp works great, and attaches with a couple of wing nuts, which I didn't trust. If I attached the ramp in the future I will also use some straps. I have a KTM 450 and it fits no problem, weights 246 lbs dry. Carrier works fine for this, make sure you have a receiver that can handle 500 lbs tongue weight ( I think that is class V). As a side note, this will get double duty as I am also going to use this for my full-suspension Mt. Bike since my current carrier isn't designed for full-suspension bikes.
