I just had a 2inch reciever class2 hitch installed so I could try my freinds jack rack. I need to take
my bike to the shop,but my trailer is snowed in. Plus I really want one of these racks so that when I
want to go for a ride I can skip the hour it takes getting ready and I can travel safely with my
bike.(my trailer is very old) I just searched on the net and it stated that the rack needs a class 3?
Anyone here have an opinion on this rack and its use with a class2?

You might be OK with a class 2 hitch. It all depends upon the weight of you bike.

I've talked to the guy that makes the Motojackrack he's a pretty nice guy. Give him a call and ask him.

Sorry no definitive answer.

I did find out that they make two racks one for bike under 300lbs and one for over. He assured me that I would be just fine with the standard rack (under 300). Although I just thought about the fact that I want the rack with the optional gas can attachment. Bike weighs 265 + 3.2 gallons + 5 gallons (8lbs/gallon). Hmmmmm over 300lbs...

Be safe. If your vehicle isn't a little Geo Metro or something, get the Class III hitch. You can feel more confident with a class III. That's all my family has ever had for hitches, its worth the money.

YZ 426's suck!(all the air they can get)
THROTTLE JOCKEY......because all golf courses should be motocross tracks!

I totally agree with Toxic. If you can swing it, get the class III. I don't think there's much of a price difference anyway.
