Actual customer comments:

  • "Ingenious Idea"
  • "Quick Shipping, great towing bar, easy to install

The Slick Wheelie attaches in seconds to a 2" Class II or Class III receiver, and its all steel construction allows for this unit to haul bikes with a curb weight of up to 1000 lbs. Other transports require you to struggle with pushing your bike up a ramp. Not this baby!

It's as easy as...

1. Simply turn the crank and the cradle lowers to ground level

2. Insert and secure the front wheel. Then,

3. Turn the crank in the opposite direction to raise the bike to the transport position.

Really. It's just that simple.

Do you have questions about this product? If so, take a look at some of The Slick Wheelie's FAQs.

Do I need lights on my motorcycle when towing with the Slick Wheelie?

Research indicates that because the Slick Wheelie is not a traditional trailer and the towing automobile's lights are not obstructed, additional lights are not needed. For safety, however, we offer two suggestions:

1.When driving at night, illuminate the motorcycle's running lights or purchase an inexpensive trailer lighting kit. These kits easily plug into your trailer lighting receptacle.

2.Check with your local law enforcement agency for regulations specific to your location (Laws sometimes change without the knowledge of some citizens.)

Will this type of towing affect my odometer reading?

Most odometers function in conjunction with the front tire. The front tire is elevated while in tow, so the odometer does not register any additional mileage. That being said, there are exceptions to any rule. Please refer to your owner's manual or contact the manufacturer with regards to your bike.

What kind of bike can be used with the Slick Wheelie?

Most 2 wheeled motorcycles can easily be towed with the Slick Wheelie. Trikes and side cars do not allow for the lean necessary for turning. There are 3 minimum requirements:

1.The front tire must allow for a strap to wrap around the rim, so there needs to be an opening.

2.The stabilizer straps must be able to attach to the handlebars or upper triple-tree - not the forks.

3.Custom raked front ends cannot extend more than 3 or 4 inches over the original stock lengths.

Can it be used with a motorcycle that has fairings or wind effects?

More often than not, a point of anchor can be found. Remember that the straps need either attach to the upper triple-tree or handle bars. Do NOT attach the straps to the forks. You cannot place straps over OR wrap around fairings, windshields, or anything that may interfere with the attaching of the motorcycle to the bumper. The straps that connect the motorcycle to the tow vehicle must be taut. As fairings and windshields can bend or break, attaching to either one may cause the straps to slip and become loose.

What size front tire will it accept?

Slick Wheelie will accommodate a front tire up to 5 1/2 inches in width - 6 inches, if you reduce the psi.

What is the weight capacity for the Slick Wheelie?

1000 pounds

Is there a particular bumper height that works best with The Original Slick Wheelie?

The bumper of the tow vehicle must measure 12'' - 16'' in height from the ground to the center of the receiver opening. If it does not, a drop receiver extension can be used.

Do you make a version of the Slick Wheelie that will fit a 1 1/4" receiver?

Slick Wheelie may not be used with a Class I receiver which has a 1.25'' square opening. If you have a Class I adapter, DO NOT use it with The Original Slick Wheelie. A Class I adapter is a device used to convert a Class I receiver to a Class II receiver. This adapter is not stable enough to work in conjunction with The Original Slick Wheelie. Although some internet sites may suggest the use of the two products together, DO NOT.

Using the Slick Wheelie, can I transport my shaft-driven motorcycle?

We have not received any reports from our consumers regarding any problems associated with the use of Slick Wheelie and shaft-driven motorcycles. However, know that some shaft-driven motorcycles use a lubrication pump that requires that the motor be running in order for it to work properly. Should you have any doubt or concern about your specific model, please contact your motorcycle manufacturer, authorized mechanic or dealer.

Will my motorcycle be damaged if I don't remove the drive chain before towing?

As with any engine concern, if you have any doubts, we recommend that you contact the service department of your bike specific dealership.

Can I purchase more than one Slick Wheelie?

Absolutely! Buy two or three. The Original Slick Wheelie makes an AWESOME gift!

    Used it to take my new motorcycle from the dealership to my place which was a 35 mile trip and the Slick Wheelie did the job?.It does lean in the turns but felt pretty comfortable once you knew it was perfectly normal.Did check the straps 3 times as i was a little paranoid but the straps never came loose?

    The 3 steps outlined on the website are oversimplified. Especially step 2: "secure the front wheel". The instructions that came with the slick wheelie were good, especially about using the stabilizer straps. But, for me step 1 was a little more involved. In order to get the top cross bar of the Slick Wheelie under the front fender of my bike, I needed to put the Slick Wheelie cradle just ½"-¾" above ground level. ¶ Inserting the front wheel of my bike was problematic. The instructions advised that the height of the hitch receiver should be between 12" and 16". I bought a step down adapter to comply with this requirement and it turns out it was too low, and turning it over made it too high. Putting the hitch receiver 18" above ground level was just right for me. For me the height of the cradle above ground level was tedious and critical. I put the Slick Wheelie cradle ½"-¾" above ground level to insert the front wheel. Any more and I could not insert the front wheel. Any less and the top crossbar would not fit under the front fender. I then used the front wheel strap to snug the front wheel to the top crossbar. Be certain that you thread the front wheel strap •inside• the bars of the frame. It seemed like the hooks of the stabilizer straps were precariously engaged behind the bumper, so I used axle straps to better secure those connections. I tried axle straps for the secure points on the bike but that limited the ratcheting straps too much. ¶ Some of the reviewers and commenters indicated that lubricating the threaded rod used to raise the motorcycle with the Slick Wheelie was very important. One reviewer mentioned seeing metal filings when raising the motorcycle without lubricating the threaded rod. I used repeated applications of motor oil on the threaded rod and had no problems. Grease might have worked better. The Slick Wheelie raised my bike a little over 6" above ground level. That turned out to be very good. ¶ I used my Slick Wheelie to haul my motorcycle 16 miles, from home to Ronnie's V-Twin Cycles in 26 minutes. I had no problems and it was a very smooth ride. I am very pleased!

    The Original Slick Wheely instructions include "If you remove the security tape the product will be deemed used; and as per the return policy, you will not be able to return it". What is not mentioned in the product description is the need for a conventional bumper. The motorcycle handlebar hold down straps must be secured to the vehicle - and if you don't have a standard bumper, this presents a problem.

  • Bought by chance 5

    Posted by Jack on Jun 27th 2023

    I have been looking for a way to haul my Harley behind my 31ft motorhome. The idea of a trailer didnt appeal because of the length of my RV and a rack on the back wouldnt work because the Harley is to heavy for that on a class C. SO I saw the slick wheelie and thought about it for quite a while and finally decided to take a chance on it. I havent had a chance to use it yet because the RV got hit by a Hail storm and is in the shop. But, I am impressed by the construction of the Slick Wheelie. Looking forward to giving it a try when I get the RV back.

    Easy hook up and loading. Pulls good. Good value. Took a minute to get used to the bike leaning on sharp turns. All good now.

  • slickest cycle tow contraption 5

    Posted by Jim on Mar 14th 2023

    I have an fx harley, 750lbs, and a pickup truck. I assembled the slick wheelie and lubed the brass and screw with a couple of drops of conventional motor oil. I put the bike in the cradle and cranked it up. I strapped it over the tailgate from the forks. I then pulled a friends 650 Suzuki with ease. Very happy with the device! I then drove 240 miles with no problems what so ever. I cruised 70-80 miles an hour on the highway making a few stopes to check the tension on the straps. This device is strong and the straps are heavy duty. I was supprised at how well it is built. Only thing I can say is if it had a bolt welded to the end of the screw a screw gun would save a lot of effort in raising and lowering the bike.

  • It works!! 5

    Posted by Sean on Nov 7th 2022

    I looked at pots of reviews before getting the Slick Wheelie. I was concerned it wouldn't work. I was pleasantly surprised! It worked great! I advise anyone getting it to practice a few times before using it for an actual trip. I learned a few things each time that made it easier and more stable. Also, grease, grease, grease on the screw shift. It will make things so much easier. Thx!

  • Great solution. 5

    Posted by BB on Aug 15th 2022

    For my light (300 lb) bike, this thing works great. Included straps are substantial and the bike was held in place solidly for my test drive of 120 miles on highway and small roads. I wish the part the goes into the tow hitch receiver was a little longer (2" would be good), as it tilts down a bit, but it's solidly made so no worry about it bending. Make sure you grease the screw shaft (and the nut at the bottom). All in all, totally worth it. Thanks!

  • Slick Willie Review 4

    Posted by Matthew on Jul 16th 2022

    The company delivered the unit within a few days. The unit is designed to handle up to 1000 lbs. My bike is a touring model Harley with a fairing. I was able to hook up the bike strapping to the upper tree in front of the motor. No problem. However, my bike is too heavy for the slick willie. I lubricated the lifting stem, but while raising the bike, it became very difficult. The weight of the bike started bending the lifting stem. Also, while lifting the bike, it started to damage the front lower part of the front fender. I would recommend this unit for a much lighter motorcycle which has a less ornate front fender. The Slick Willie is probably a very good unit for the right sized bike. I hope this helps.
