Overall Customer Rating of 57 Reviews:

This thing is solid.

  • Great price and holds the load!
  • Hardware rust!
I’ve had the mototote sport for several months now and it has been a game changer! It handles my 470 lb bike with no issues and I have since traveled hundreds of miles with it, including highway, dirt roads, and big hills.
The only reason I’m giving 4 stars is because I believe the carrier should come standard with the rust resistant hardware and I shouldn’t have to spend an additional $30 on the “rust resistant hardware kit”. I was quite surprised when I noticed hardware rust. I feel like this is a safety issue. Standard inclusion of the rust resistant hardware would prevent the likelihood of something happening to the carrier under load, but could also prevent future motor vehicle accidents.
Otherwise, this is a great product, and I will continue to use and recommend it. Just don’t be surprised when you have to come back and buy new hardware.

Good product spoiled by poor hardware

  • Sturdy
  • holds fat-tire TW200s & VanVans
  • Cheap hardware
  • mediocre powder coating
If you're going to pay 2 to 3 times as much for this rack as one from Harbor Freight or Black Widow, you should expect a better rack. The rack itself is solid - I'm carrying a 300 pound trail bike with no issues. The hardware used to assemble it are low-end (not stainless). I installed the rack, and when I came back the next morning the bolts were rusting after just a light rain. Keep them coated with ACF-50 and they'll be ok. If you're going to remove the rack periodically, it's a good idea to replace the bolt securing it to the hitch occasionally to avoid stress issues. MotoTote will sell you a replacement bolt for $8. I picked up an identical bolt from my local Fastenal for 88 cents. The powder coating is mediocre - it rubs off with use. If MotoTote included high quality hardware they would probably sell more racks to offset the minimal increase in their cost (I've seen negative reviews that would keep some buyers away), but the racks are in short supply due to Covid, so they have little incentive to do so. It costs next to nothing to replace the bolts with quality ones and buy a can of ACF-50 to stymy the rust issues


Just ordered another one! Had a Firend reccommend this back to me a while ago ordered one and had such a great experience I ordered another for my second car.


Just what I needed

  • Price/Quality
This thing is sturdy and stable very well made. easy to install.


Great Hitch

  • Capacity
  • Sturdy
  • Weight
I recently received my Sport Hitch and have carried my WR250R with no issues. The front and rear tie downs are great, a couple of my friends have commented on how sturdy it is, no wobbles at all. It is a little heavy but since it has such a high capacity I understand it. I will be trying my Tiger Rally Pro on it soon.
