I bought this one for my WR250R and have hauled it with no problem using my Colorado (couldn't even tell it was there). I also ordered their anti-wobble box with it.

Ya don’t see that every day!
I have one of the aluminum ones. It has the anti wobble set up and works good for up to 400 lbs. they make a bigger one that goes to 600 lbs.

I've got one you could borrow or just see if it works for your bike. Seems to just be missing two wing nuts to secure the ramp. I've used it for a similar size bike, managed to secure it to the spare tire on the rear door pretty well. It might be wobbly if you can't do that or add some support tie-downs to it.

make sure your hitch is rated for the weight as well

Hitch is rated for 500lb so with bike and carrier i should be fine even with it bieng levered out, but i tried a buddy's crappy HFspecial and the bike doesn't clear my spare tire on the fj and i dont trust the flimsy cross bars on the factory roof rack to cary a heavy full size spare on bouncy off road and this is going to be about a 3k mile trip, even tho i realy didnt want to its looking like my trailer might be best.

if you get next class up hitch you can strap the spare onto the bike/hitch carrier
