After a lot of research on hitch mount carriers I settled on the Ultimate MX Hauler for my 2005 DRZ400s. The build quality is superb however I did run into two issues, one of which I fixed easily with a bench grinder and the other I am still thinking of ideas. The first issue was with the part the bottle jack sits on. The bottle jack would not line up with the supplied bracket that holds it in place or with the pressure plate receiver the where the top of the bottle jack applies its force. The reason it would not line up was because whoever welded the tab that holds the bottle jack bracket forgot to clean up the weld, or they welded it on the wrong side. I fixed this issue by grinding down the cast iron base plate of the bottle jack until it cleared the weld. It now lines up perfectly. This issue was a minor let down for the money I paid but I imagine it would have been a major let down for someone who does not own a bench grinder. The second issue I am still thinking over my options. The issue I am having is the pegs on a stock DRZ400s do not line up with the receiving holes for the peg bolts. The stock pegs have rubber in them when you unscrew the bolt that holds them in there is a metal plate welding in the center of the peg, however there is a gap at the outer most part of the peg just big enough to let the peg bolts supplied with the MX Hauler slide through. The problem is the peg bolts at the outer most point on the pegs do not fit into the MX Hauler, the spacing on the plate is not wide enough. Possible solutions: 1. Use the hooks at the top of the peg bolts to hook into the peg as it is bolted down without actually putting the peg bolts through the pegs. a. I do not like this solution as it does not feel stable if I apply pressure to the rear of the bike. It might be okay if I could put the peg bolts behind the pegs but I cannot do that because my lower linkage hits the plate not allowing me to move the bike further forward to create room for the bolts behind the pegs (See pics below). 2. Drill out the plate that is welded in the center of the pegs to hold the rubber. a. Will the hurt the structural integrity of the peg? Have any of you done this? 3. Buy new pegs a. I am leaning toward this option. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
