Would the rings on the slide tracks around the bed work? I know they say max load 250lbs but my concern is they are high and it would be harder to tighten the front fork down.

Any suggestions on how to securly strap the bike down would be great!
I didnt read the whole thread but your better strapping the bike out than you are down. The more horizontal the straps are the better it will hold the bike. When they point down the bike has more leverage to sway back and forth

The tracks are very strong! I used to haul my 1507 CC Victory (dry weight of 650 lbs) all over the place using just those... until...







The rails never budged, but the tailgate crunched under the weight of the bike after going over a speed hump that i kinda did not see in the road.

I went right over to the dealership and talked to the service manager... Thank god that i voiced my concern of buying a short bed with the salesmen before i bought it because i let him know i haul bikes all the time, and he said that it would be no problem and he admitted to telling me that, after it happened. After everything was said and done, They bought me a new painted tailgate!

Now i have a 4 foot piece of 2" angle iron running the width of the tailgate welded to a 1/4" sheet of steel that the rear tire of the bike sits on to distribute the weight. Have not had a problem since!

Know this is an old thread, but I'm on the fence with purchasing a double cab short bed or an access cab with 6ft bed. I won't be hauling my bike very often, but I would like to have the ability to in those rare instances.

@SGT_Taco
I have a Shadow Spirit 750 that's much lighter than your Victory, but I was curious to know more about your reinforcement solution.

Do you have any pictures of what you did to distribute the weight? Thanks for posting your experience.

I might be mistaken but I believe Toyota fixed the tailgate issue, there tailgate TSB was for the 2008 and earlier models.

Relentless Fab makes metal tailgate liner and lip. If you can fab, the drawing (specs) are posted on TW.
