I have a prime time fury 2910. When I loan my load or unload my can am Spyder the angle of the ramp is to steep and the bike hangs up. Any simple tip to stop this?

carry a couple of pieces of 2x8 and place them under the ramp where you will roll the bike off.
Raising that end on the ground a couple of inches will ease the angle at the top.

Several simple things can be done:
- As mentioned a few boards under the ramp.
- If you can park where the ground is sloping up would do a similar trick
- Alternatively, you could raise the front which will drop the back.
- If you back into the garage, just gun it...ooops sounds fun but maybe not the best idea.

Or add an extension that would flip over when the ramp is down, effectively lessening the approach angle.

On edit, where does it hang up? Top or bottom?

A bit overkill I will admit, but it works on our Raptor and both our Spyder ST-L or our Spyder RT-S. The nose doesnt scrape either on the way up.

Nice to have some feedback from the OP. Irksome: ask for advice and then disappear.

Maybe three of these would work?
