MAIN BAR LENGTH:
90% of vehicles are STANDARD LENGTH main bar.
Dual Cab Utes with a tub, style side and 4WD Wagons with NO spare tyre on rear door are STANDARD LENGTH.
Tray Back Utes, Wagons with a spare tyre on the rear door, 4×4’s with swing away spare tyres, jerry can holders will need a longer main bar.
On the standard length main bar your bikes inside foot peg is 230mm from the center of the hitch pin hole.
SUV Wagons want 50-100mm between the foot peg and the spare tyre.
Open Tray back Utes want 50-100mm between the foot peg and end of tray.
If you run a tape out 1250, 1500, 1750 from the top of your tow bar receiver to the ground you’ll see the loading angle.
1250 Ramp – On a standard height 4WD (receiver is 450-500 off the ground) your bike is easy to load.
1500 Ramp – If you have a 2″ lift or your receiver is 550+ off the ground you’ll need this.
1750 Ramp – Higher lifts and bigger tyres will need this.
HIGH LIFT BARS:
For 90% of people with 4×4’s the standard height works fine, fire trails, easy access 4WD into camp sites.
If you want to do the Desert, Cape, High Country or any other serious 4×4 then clearance is king.
Also stronger as it’s braced with 4mm Bluescope plate each side of joints.
Lifts are measured center to center.
