Tie Down Location
« on: April 23, 2020, 09:12:16 AM »

I'm sure this has been asked before but, can some one recommend a way or the best way to tie down the front end of my 19 FLTRXSE without rubbing the paint? On my street glide I used the HD tie-down brackets but no such item exists for a road glide.

In the past I have tied down at the axle/fork area but my the wheel chock in my small Clamshell trailer is too close to the D-rings in the floor to allow that.

I haven't mounted this up or tried it yet but I bought one of these over the winter for the very same reason.

At Lordco I found a pair of ratchet straps with a very short minimum length......I think about a foot.

10x on the biker bar.

 Best 350 bucks I have spent. Bolted it to the floor of my new trailer 2 weeks ago, clamped the bar to the bike (right behind the primary cover worked for me) rode up into the trailer and was locked down before I could hit the kill switch. Feels solid as a rock without fork compression. Will never be without one again. I think my neighbors are all getting one after they saw how easy it was.

The one time I had to haul my Road Glide.  We used very short ratchet straps and used the front engine guards just above the hwy pegs.  Used the frame in the rear.   

I hate hauling a bike, I'm always nervous about doing so.  Straps really need to be good ratchet type, the others will slip.

Nick, ktperformance.net has them for $342.50....$330 if you buy 3  or more (group buy?).    Might consider cancel/return to Amazon and save some bucks.

Yes I see that, only problem is I'm in Canada. 340 = about $500 CDN then add shipping, brokerage fees and HST tax at 13% and its well over 6 hundo. Prior to COVID-19 I would have it shipped to my USA address in Niagara Falls but these days the border is closed for non essential travel...

So if i want it now, I have to buy it from a Canadian vendor and suck it up! At least I know its made in America, not CHINA!

Thank you though!! Much appreciated.

Yeah I know the exchange rate/duties can be a pain....KT offers free shipping stateside...does that include Canada?, I don't know.   Could be worth a phone call to find out what the final damages could be.....or see if they have a business partner/distributor up that way that could cut a deal.   But, if needed right away...I guess you are stuck w/Amazon.     Good product/wise choice.....take care.
