IMPORTANT NOTE ON MODEL SELECTION
The design of most modern scooters involves the positioning of the complete motor-drive assembly in the rear wheel - as opposed to balanced in the middle of the machine as with all regular motorcycles. This affects their use with these racks because it puts a large proportion of the weight away from the center of the rack, and out towards the loading side. With the heavier scooters it also makes it difficult to load, and for the rack to flop naturally back into its horizontal postion.
With the light-weight scooters this problem can be addressed by the selection of a larger rack. For instance for all scooters weighing up to 250-275 lbs the 410ACR (400 lb capacity) should always be selected (not the210ACR) for all scooters weighing more than 300lb - the larger 610ACR (600 lb capacity) should be selected. This has two advantages - not only is the rack larger and stronger, but is also longer, which moves the load weight towards the centre of the rack.

720 Connection Bar - for double motorcycle racks
This is the brand-new solution for two motorcycles (or two scooters) providing more flexibility in purchasing and use. The model 720 is a special bar that will convert a single mororcycle rack to a double rack for two motorcycles.
Use of this connection bar allows three combinations for different weight loads
1. 210ACR to another 210ACR. This would be for lighter loads like two smaller scooters.
2. 410ACR to a 210ACR. This would be for one heavier motorcycle plus one lighter motorcycle (less than 200 lb)
3. 410ACR to another 410ACR. This would be for two heavier motor cycles - both under 400 lbs each - total weight up to 700 lb. This is the most ordered combination.
The reason that the first rack loads from the kerb-side and the second rack from the opposite side is that the second rack is mounted from its rear - this allows room for the two sets of handlebars.
IMPORTANT. The tongue-weight limitations for the host vehicle and the 2" hitch must be understood. The max unsupported tongue weight rating of the hitch must exceed the total weight of the two racks plus the two motorcycles. In nearly all cases - apart from the lighter loads on two 210ACR racks - this will require a 3/4 ton vehicle or larger with a Class IV hitch.
