Got my new KRX this Thursday. Took it out for a short ride and found the suspension better than my old machine, a Yamaha Wolverine r-spec. Storage? Meh, especially the kawasaki storage box for the rear bed (I bought it anyway). My trailer is a 6 x 14, and very tight width wise. I can get the machine on, but both times rub the tires on one side. I’ve been shopping wider trailers and looking at 12 and 14 foot lengths. The KRX is 10’ 8” long. I would like to buy the 12 ft. Trailer but am worried that it will not anchor with tie down straps as well as the 14‘ trailer. Its a heavy machine. What do you think about trailer length? Thanks

I also recently went from an r-spec to krx.

I say go for the 14'. Anytime I have debated about trailer sizes, I've gone with the longer one. I rarely hear anyone say they should have bought a smaller trailer. Its always the case where you want/need bigger. Plus more space for gear.

Thanks for your reply. I’ve decided on the 14‘ because of the better strap dynamics. Less of a 90 degree angle, more of a 45 degree strap angle.

I use 7x14 enclosed. Now thats a tight fit! Remember ya can always anchor to the middle as well. It doenst have to be end to end strap. I agree though always buy bigger!

With the weight of this thing any trailer over 12' should probably have a double axle. I snagged a 76" W x12 L' utility trailer with a dovetail and got it on very easily. My trailer weight is 1067 lbs. so I have room for gear, tie down components, and a full fuel load ++. Most 14' trailers I've come across weight 1200 to 1400 lbs and sit on 3500 lb axles. That doesn't leave much room with a nearly 2000 lb SXS.

I am running a enclosed trailer 8.5x18ft with 2ft vnose. 5200lb Dexter axles. With 7ft interior height. Works well nice to be able to lock up your rig and keep your stuff dry.

Digger, you May already have a new trailer but I just saw your post and wanted to reply. Maybe it’ll help somebody else but, I’ve got a 12’ trailer tandem axle trailer and my KRX fits perfect on it. Ties down good, no problem, pulls great. Only issue I have is backing it up unloaded. You can’t see the end of it with tailgate up and it it will zigzag real easy so you have to back up carefully. Another thing to maybe consider is how much driveway you have at home, for some people. Otherwise I bet either 12’ or 14’ works fine for KRXs.
