Strapless Transport Stand for the KTM RC8 is the fastest loading motorcycle trailer restraint system. Easily secure your motorcycle without the use of wheel chocks, straps, or tie-downs by inserting the bike specific steel bar through the hollow rear axle of the motorcycle and locking it back into the upright tower bracket of the stand. No stress on your suspension. Loading and unloading takes 1 minute or less and can be done by one person.

Strapless Transport Stand, motorcycle towing device, works great in enclosed trailers, open trailers, shipping crates, cargo vans, long bed pick-up trucks, etc.
Q1. Are the Strapless Transport Stands (STS) Removable?
A1. Yes, the STS has two base plates that bolt to the trailer floor, and the stand is locked into those mounting plates. The STS can be installed or removed in less than 30 seconds.
Q2. Can I haul different bikes (make,model,year) in the STS?
A2. The main frame part of the STS is the same for all motorcycles, the only part of the system that varies from bike to bike is the Axle Bar. You will need the appropriate Axle Bar Kit for each motorcycle you plan to haul.
Q3. What if I buy a new motorcycle, will I still be able to use my STStand?
A3. Yes, as long as your new motorcycle is listed on the “Fitment Page” of our website. You may need to buy a new Axle Bar to work with your new motorcycle.
Q4. What holds the front of the motorcycle while in transit?
A4. Because the STS holds the motorcycle securely with a bar through the rear axle there is no need for any other restraints. The motorcycle cannot lean, and the front cannot move side to side, so there is no need for a wheel chock or tie-downs.
Q5. Can I load my motorcycle facing backwards?
A5. YES, you can mount the stand to have your bike facing backwards, forwards, or even sideways.
Q6. Can I load my motorcycle by myself (one person)?
A6. YES, this system will allow you to load and secure your motorcycle easily with only one person.
Q7. Does hauling the motorcycle with a bar through the rear axle damage my bike?
A7. NO, the rear axle is one of the strongest parts on your motorcycle. The Strapless Transport Stand is a new idea for the masses of Track Day Riders and Club racers, but the Factory race teams all the way up to MotoGP use some type of Rear Axle Support Stand when transporting their bikes.
Q8. Will my bike bounce up and down during transport?
A8. Your motorcycle will ride on its own suspension, and will act very similar as to if you were riding it inside your trailer while driving down the road.
Q9. Will the Strapless Transport Stand work on a different bike from the one I bought it for?
A9. The main frame part of the STStand is the same for all motorcycles, the only part of the system that varies from bike to bike is the Axle Bar Kit. You will need the appropriate Axle Bar for each motorcycle you plan to haul using the STStand.
Q10. Can I buy additional Mounting hardware OR Spare Parts to be able to use the STS in more than one trailer?
A10. YES, you can order additional mounting kits which include a pair of mounting plates and all need hardware (bolts, washers, nuts). Nearly every part of the stand is available for replacement in case of loss or damage. Visit the "WHICH BIKE? / PARTS" Drop Down Menu above and scroll to the bottom to select the replacement parts you need.
Installation of the Strapless Transport Stand consists of bolting two mounting plates to the floor, then sliding the restraint stand into place and engaging the locking mechanism.
