Tuk Tuk Owners...Question?

For those of you with a dual cab, can you fit a dirtbike in the back on the diagonal, with the tailgate up?

The BT50 appears to have one of the larger trays?

Cheers

On a semi-related note: anyone put a dirt bike in the tray of a 79-series dual cab?

Amarok - trials bikes fit diagonally with tailgate up

Look closely at the ads for dualcabs when they have 2 dirt bikes in the tray, usually it’s a pair of Yamaha’s TTR125s or big wheel 80s 😆

I can get mine in the D-max if I pop the front wheel up onto the wheel well. I couldn't be stuffed though, just leave the tailgate down.

Edit...I've seen your parking space. I get the question now.

Short answer is "No" Tony, they're a bugger to tie down.

I had a dmax dual cab and never actually tried to fit a bike diagonally, my measurements said NO so I didn't bother testing.

On a side note I made a step the slid into the towbar square so I could safely walk up into/out of the tray to load and unload bikes (I am a short arse). So much better than the old milk crate balancing act.

You will fit the bike on a diagonal with the tail gate up , depends on the tray also , my old tray was a fleet trades which was 100mm longer then my new mmm tray . Both trays are capable of carrying a bike .

The wheel arch restriction seem to vary somewhat between different models. I'm sure I've seen one fit in a BT50, it probably had extra tie-down points.

My next question would be 'do they go ok as a city driver, un-laden'?

Cameron, are trials bikes same size as a full size trail bike? Think I need 2200mm on the diagonal.

Sounds good OS, do you have a pic?

Al I'm pretty sure some dual-cabs are a fraction short for the task. At this stage I think the BT50 can manage it and probably the Amarok
