Thread: Need a chock!

  1. #1

    Need a chock!

    What sort of wheel chock fits a C650GT- 2016 ? Need to keep it from jumping around the trailer, on the way to Utah next month! I've tried two- neither worked.

    TIA-

    Might be good to have a bit more information. Along with the chock, as far as I'm concerned, you still need a 4 point tie down. I have never seen a chock not work, only some working better than others.
    The 2 I use the most- I made out of channel iron and allows me to tie the wheel to the chock.
    Give us some specifics and we will try to help you out

    will look some more-

    The wheel is small, the brake is large, is the short story. I'll look at some of the suggestions, thanks.

    I like how the Baxley pinches and grips the tire when the wheel rolls into it.

    There is extra crap... er stuff, on the front wheel.

    The tires are 120/70 R15. The chocks I have now will hit the brake disc, plus there are other ...things on the bottom of the fork.

    Someone mentioned- how will I strap it. Good point! I was going to work on that after I had the chock in place. I'll look that over later.

    I have a little time now, it has been decided by management that (her) scooter will not need to go to Utah. My GS I already have figured out. But I'll still need to trailer the scooter at some point.

    Will look again at the chocks previously mentioned, I think the answer might be there.

    I think the Harbor Freight chock would work.

    I move mine between my lift table and my trailer. Bolted down, it provides two tie down points in front.

    I don't think there would be any interference with the fork or brake discs. Not a great video, but https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLEa-uic6lw shows a side view of a bike rolling into the chock.

    $57.99

    Take 20-25% off with a coupon from http://www.hfqpdb.com/. No need to spend big bucks for a seldom used item.

    Spend some of the savings on quality tie down straps. I like the High Roller brand, which has several models with integral soft ties and closed hooks.

    Thanks

    Thanks, I'm over thinking this. Looks like Condor or Baxley or HF would all work. The cradle thing is the way to go for sure. Thanks again.

    See you in Utah!
