Question Trailering, Tie Down Question

Hey guys,

This might seem really stupid, but humor me( or bust my balls whatever).

Of course no issues with securing front of bike to trailer, my question is the rear of the bike.

I usually will secure using the rear pass pegs on past bikes I have had, but of course, they are usually nicelt part of the rear subframe......

On the 919, the rear pegs are part of the rear sets, and dont seem as strong to secure the bike. When I trailered it home, I did use the rear pegs, but was only able to put light tension on them before I could see them flex. And with NO accessable rear subframe to grab onto........

Where do you guys secure the rear of your 919's to the trailer?

I never use straps on the rear.

Aren't you on the SVRider forum?

Another for going around the rear tire. My reasoning is just to keep the rear end from moving side to side. Obviously tie the front down real good and compress the forks when tightening.

I took the pass peg heel guards off the day I got the 919. That leaves a nice big hole to put a tie down hook thru. No flex.

I pull front down hard as I can and also I wrap the tie down around the rear pegs then hooks back to the strap.

The 919 is light enough, that with a wheel chock up front, I don't tie the rear down at all; however, using a strap around the rear tire seems a good idea.

On the right set I hook the strap on that horizontal slit, and on the left I feed the strap through the V portion right by the front peg and then attach both hooks to the truck. Haven't had a single problem.

67GTONUT helped me out deciding between the SV and the CB. I got to test ride an SV and it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. The 919 doesn't dissapoint!

Don't compress the forks too much or you can damage fork seals. I would not use a canyon dancer with tube bars as it has a tendency to turn the bars. Use some soft ties on the triples. I use the subframe with soft ties this is also with a cradle type wheel chock. You petty much just need to tie down the rear with those.
