Summary

The Acebikes Tyre Fix motorcycle tie-down strap is a completely different system to secure a motorcycle on a trailer.

It's very well made, with heavy-duty components.

The flexible tire gripper fits over the front or rear tire to hold the motorcycle securely on the trailer.

If it fits your bike, it's more effective than using a strap on the handlebars and frame.

The Tyre Fix tie-down is easy to use and fits most motorcycles.

Introduction

Acebikes makes some very high-quality products, each with an ingenious feature or two that makes them stand above the competition.

Acebikes specializes in motorcycle transportation products. These are typically precision-made and obviously designed by someone who knows motorcycles...and the intricacies and idiosyncrasies of trailering a bike.

The newest Acebikes product in this regard is the Acebikes Tyre Fix, a flexible motorcycle tie-down strap that can be used on either the front or rear wheels. The design is similar to the Tyre Down tie-down system from Australia, which has served admirably for many years.

 The Acebikes Tyre Fix tie-down system offers a completely different concept for holding the bike on the trailer. The flexible strap can be used on either the front or rear tire or both. It's placed over the tire and it has a system of straps with attached ratchets to hold the bike.

The Tyre Fix strap holds the tire only, not the motorcycle or the handlebars. This means there is absolutely no suspension loading and you don't have to worry about bending the handlebars, forks or scratching the paint.

Front Tire Usage

Since most the rear tire on most motorcycles has much more clearance over the top than the front, the Tyre Fix may or may not fit on your front tire, depending on the amount of clearance between the fender and the tire. It fits the front tire of a 1986 BMW R65, for example, and, obviously, the Suzuki DR650 (blog). It may not fit between the tire and fender of a sportbike with less than about 10 mm clearance.

The "V" shape formed by the side straps and the fact that they are independent and then connect at the metal buckle is a deliberate design to allow the straps to be placed around the front fork tube on either side of the bike.

Just note that the Tyre Fix will fit the rear tire of many more motorcycles than the front tire, due to differences in clearance, the front fender design, fairing issues, etc. on the front tire and wheel.

The tire holder is 6 mm thick, so it can slip under almost every fender to fit on top of the tire. It's made from a heavy-duty nylon webbing, similar to the webbing used on traditional ratchet and lift straps. This type of webbed strap is used in industry to lift very heavy items weighing dozens or even hundreds of tons, so when it's properly designed, there should be no worries about breaking.

In fact, the webbing and the ratchets used on the Acebikes Tyre Fix look like they're overbuilt by a factor of, oh, about 10 or so.

Underneath is a rubberized friction material that feels something like rubbery Astroturf. It provides excellent grip on the tire when the Tyre Fix straps are tightened with the ratchets.

Each "arm" of the H has sewn-in straps with a galvanized steel clasp at the end. The clasp from one slides over a post on the other, which also holds the ratchet. This forms a strong "V" shaped anchor and then another separate tie-down strap with a hook on the end is attached to the trailer. 

Note webbikeworld picture below uses the Tyre Fix in conjunction with the bike grab.  What a perfect match, the front wheel is safe and secure, while the rear end is tied down firm;y.  Some users simply hold the front wheel in the grab with a wheel strap, no front fork compression at all while the back end is locked down with Tyre Fix
