Single-Wheeled Motorcycle Trailers

TOWBAR & HITCH GUIDELINES

Unlike a conventional trailer, a single-wheeled motorcycle trailer like ours additionally require that in addition to the fore and aft horizontal axis forces, the trailer’s vertical axis must also be rigidly controlled. As such, towbar strength and overall-rigidity requirements are absolutely critical to the safety, feel and outright performance of a single wheeled trailer. For this reason, lightly-built towbars which can be flexed side to side or in any other direction, by hand, are quite simply unsuitable for this application. We strongly advise riders against employing such a towbar for towing a single-wheeled trailer.

ALWAYS EMPLOY THE STRONGEST AND MOST RIGID TOWBAR / HITCH POSSIBLE, FOR TOWING A SINGLE WHEELED MOTORCYCLE TRAILER BEHIND A MOTORCYCLE.

While there is wide-spread commentary suggesting that a certain amount of flex needs to be engineered into motorcycle towbars, to prevent conventional two-wheeled trailers from “wagging the dog” in transferring road surface bumps and movement from the trailer to the bike, this opinion or argument is completely-irrelevant and misguided when it comes to Single-Wheeled Motorcycle Trailers. The truth is that the more rigid a towbar or hitch is, the better a Single-Wheeled Motorcycle Trailer will feel and perform. There is a DIRECT RELATIONSHIP between the two.
