Will the AMC-400 clear the back of my vehicle? Please measure back 18" from the center of the pin hole on the trailer hitch and strike a chalk mark on the ground. Roll the bike over the chalk mark and visually check for clearance. The 18" measurement is the distance on the carrier to the center of the track. Keep in mind that the bike will be level with the height of the trailer hitch.
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!

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.

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 StarsJust as I expected...

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 StarsVery well built carrier

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 StarsA good ramp for little money

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 StarsPerfect for Dual Sport weekends!

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!

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.
