Stacks and a an R6 in the bed? With tailgate closed?

So, with my 05 conversion, I want dual Aussie cut stacks.

However, I will be putting an R6 in the bed. I really want the tailgate to close so I can take a road trip with the bike in the bed and just really trust that the bike doesn't go anywhere. The only way to really guarantee that is the tailgate closed.


How could this work? Short Bed Crew Cab truck....

285 BFG ATs, 6637 Intake.

I have had a sport bike in the back of my old truck with a 6' bed and I do not think that you could fit a bike in the back with stacks AND close the tailgate.

i have an r6.. there is 2 inches left front to back. without stacks. if u were only putting one bike in you could prob put it in the truck on an angle to make it work.

I would build a guard box that encloses the exhaust running across the floor of the bed, and fab a ramp that goes from the bed to the top of the enclosure. Could be built with aluminum angle stock and diamondplate. That way the front tire of the bike sits upon the enclosure. You could even bolt a wheel chock on it too.

That would be a tight fit... MAYBE you could angle it with the gate closed, but yeah you'll need something in between the exhaust and your bike or things will get hot haha

I'm not 100 percent set on the stacks but I really want them and I will not them if I cannot put a bike in the back, or at that matter 2 bikes. (Myself and my Girls )

That sounds like the only way to really accomplish this the way I want to and do it the right way without half assing it.

or you could run the cross over for the stacks under the bed and cut two seperate holes on in each corner of the bed up front for the stack to come up.
