OPERATION
Mounting the Motorcycle on Wheel Chock
  1. Place the wheel chock directly in front of or behind the motorcycle.
  2. Align the wheel with the center of the cradle.

  4. When servicing or storing the motorcycle, secure the wheel to the front stop with an appropriate strap or cord. Route the strap around the front stop and through the wheel.
Wheel Chock Fit and Cradle Setting
NOTE
The cradle settings indicated in Table 1 are recommendations only. Cradle settings may differ due to tire manufacturing variations.
When the wheel chock cradle is set in the proper location, the cradle tilts as far forward as possible without contacting the any part of the wheel chock or the surface below.
If the wheel chock is too tight or if the wheel sticks in the wheel chock, remove the motorcycle from the chock and move the cradle one setting closer to the front stop channel as follows:
  1. See Figure 1. Remove hitch pin (18) and cradle pivot pin (7).
  2. Move cradle (8) to new position.
  3. Install cradle pivot pin and hitch pin.
  4. Be sure that all fasteners are tight and all pins are in place prior to use.
