Motorcycle Ramp Tips
Whether you’re a professional racer of a hobbyist rider, transporting, unloading or offloading your motorcycle is a crucial task. Motorcycle ramps, however, can make it easier, faster and safer. With the right ramp, loading your bike on your vehicle can take you just about 15 seconds, but, getting the wrong ramp or loading without caution can lead to ramp failure or worst, serious injury.
Types of Motorcycle Ramps
Ramp Champ has a variety of motorcycle ramps that you can choose from. Below are some options for your motorcycle ramp needs:Curved Ramps feature a curve or arch in the upper part of the ramp which helps to prevent vehicles from bottoming out when transitioning from the ramp to the ute or trailer.
Fixed Ramps are permanently attached to the vehicle, usually sliding or folding from a fixed point at the rear of the vehicle.
Folding Ramps fold lengthways and are great for storing in small spaces such as the back of your ute or trailer.
Straight Ramps have no curve and are non-folding. These ramps are simple and easy to use.
We also have ramps with side-walk specially designed for large bikes that allow complete control when loading and a full-width ramp for safe and convenient loading.
How Long of a Motorcycle Ramp Do I Need?This is a common question among motorcycle riders. The right ramp length will actually depend on the kind of vehicle you’re loading your bike onto as well as the type of bike you’ll be using the ramp for.
The recommended load height (the height of the truck bed or trailer) is from 76 cm at the lowest to 99 cm at the highest. This range covers the vast majority of truck beds except for very tall lifted trucks. Normally, ramps should be 3 times the height of the tailgate of your vehicle. To make it easier to calculate, you can use our handy Ramp Calculator to help you determine the correct length ramp for your requirements.
