anyone ever converted a boat trailer to a MC hauler?? ive got a boat trailer and just need to make a floor for it?? anyone got any idea about how you would go at it? i assume getting some metal to add in across the open spaces then im thinking some diamond plate bolted to the frame

gross weight for the trailer is 1519

Take all the rollers etc off, and deck it with 3/4" pressure treated plywood. Add a couple of tiedowns,
and some new lights, and roll out!

You'd really need to cut a few feet off of that tongue too, and ditch the jack.
You won't need it. Do you plan to add a ramp?

That would work fine, but leaves a lot of room for road debris to get at your bikes. The toolbox is a good idea, but If I were building one, it would have a full deck.

If I were you, I'd be hauling buns on the Hayabusa the opposite direction of the T-Rex coming down the street. Forget the trailer. :lol:

Sell the trailer, and put the money down on a decent hauler. The bike's too classy for the piece of "work" you're thinking about!
You're thinking about putting the fastest bike in the world on the ugliest trailer in the world? Paaleeeeese!

Like said above, deck it with 3/4 treated plywood and make sure your tie downs are anchored to the frame of the trailer and not just the plywood.

I agree with cutting the tongue down a few feet.

Don't forget to add a spare tire somewhere.
