If your motorcycle is not on this list, that does not mean you cannot have a Voyager just yet. There’s a good chance we’re designing a kit for your motorcycle right now. Or, you can start the design process. Just call in [toll free (877) 434-7901] with the year, make and model of your motorcycle and we will (a) tell you if it is possible and (b) discuss the terms of the kit design process.
The Voyager is not permanent–it leaves you the option to go back to two-wheels. You can move your Voyager from motorcycle to motorcycle (of similar size) with the purchase of new mounting hardware and suspension parts, if needed. You do not have to permanently modify a your motorcycle. Plus, it saves you thousands of dollars!
Quality. We have the strongest frame and attachment points in the industry for important reasons. The Voyager has been strenuously tested for stress levels by an independent engineering firm.
The Voyager Convertible Kit is the original convertible kit since 1998. We have more satisfied customers on the road today than any other convertible kit company. We constantly improve the Voyager and have been for 13 years. We have the largest and most committed dealership network.

The Voyager includes a Voyager frame, fenders, a rear guard/assembly, a mounting hardware kit, a suspension hardware kit, tires & wheels, hubs, a trailer ball hitch, jack stands, a portable kickstand, a preload plate and an installation manual.
Each style Voyager functions the same way. If you’re looking for pure functionality, pure stability, the Voyager Standard is for you. If you want functionality and full style, the Voyager Classic is for you. If you want a little style the Voyager Custom and Voyager Ultra give you just that.
These kits differ in the style of fenders and rear guards. The Standard comes with metal fenders and a metal rear guard. The Classic comes with fiberglass fenders and a fiberglass rear assembly. The Custom comes with fiberglass fenders and a metal rear guard. The Ultra comes with metal fenders and a fiberglass rear assembly.
NOTE: Everything is bolt on. No drilling, no welding.
The Voyager is mounted via receiver brackets (mounting hardware) installed on the motorcycle. Once these brackets are installed, the Voyager frame will bolt on and bolt off in minutes. The receiver brackets are not permanent, but for most bikes, can stay on while riding your two-wheel motorcycle.
Installing the Voyager yourself requires basic mechanical knowledge. NOTE: Everything is bolt on. No drilling, no welding. Generally we say, if you can change your own rear tire, you will have no problem installing the Voyager.
1. SAE Wrenches (7/16”; 9/16”; 1/2”; 3/4”, 1-1/8”)
Metric Wrenches (8mm–19mm)
2. Phillips Screwdrivers
3. 32mm Axle Bolt Wrench (usually comes with motorcycle)
For us, the manufacturer, to install your Voyager it will take 1.5-3.5 hours depending on the motorcycle and style Voyager you purchase.
For an inexperienced installer, it will take 3-6 hours generally.
After your Voyager installation taking the Voyager off of your motorcycle is simple and quick. First, stabilize your motorcycle. Second, remove the main attachment bolts. Third, unplug your electrical, pull the Voyager off the rear receiver brackets and install your portable kickstand. Forth, roll or drive you motorcycle over the crossbar and off of the Voyager. This process generally takes 5-10 minutes.
To put the Voyager back on just reverse the steps: Back the motorcycle into the Voyager, line up the rear receiver brackets with the suspension forks, plug your electrical and bolt in the main attachment bolts. This process generally takes 10-20 minutes.
The more you practice, the faster the on-and-off process.
You have the choice of either a finished gloss black or primer gray. For a charge, we will custom paint your Voyagers. However, we do not guarantee an exact match to your motorcycle, the process takes 3-4 weeks and it costs $425-550. Specialty colors cost more, call for details. Some motorcycles we can’t paint to match.
During the slow season (October through February) your Voyager will ship in 1-2 business days. During the busy season (March through September) your Voyager will ship in 5-10 business days. After being shipped, the package generally takes 5-7 business days to arrive.
Your Voyager sits in a 66” x 66” x 28” box. It weighs 360 lbs. You will need to get it off of the truck via man-power or lift. If you have neither available, you can request lift gate service for an additional $125.00 fee.
The Voyager’s suspension is independent of the motorcycle. The Voyager wheels move independently of the motorcycle reducing front-end shake. Front-end shake is also reduced by shock absorbing leaf springs and rubber shock mounts.
Becoming high-centered is physically possible, but rare. The Voyager wheels and the rear wheel of the motorcycle work independently of each other and therefore allow each other to move to different heights on an uneven road. The Voyager wheels are also preloaded to push the center wheel down to the ground lowering the chance of traction loss.
Not in the sense of leaning a two-wheel motorcycle, not for control. However, there is a slight amount of flexibility allowing the motorcycle to lean/tilt approximately six to twelve (6-12) degrees inside of the Voyager delivering a less rigid ride. Despite the lean, with the Voyager attached the motorcycle must be steered like a trike (using a simple push-pull system).
Motorcycle Tour Conversions, Inc. warrants this Voyager-branded hardware product against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of one (1) YEAR from the date of retail purchase by the original end-user purchaser.
If a valid claim is received within the one (1) YEAR warranty period a repair or replacement will be warranted at no charge.
An independent engineering firm (Datasyst – WI) tested the Voyager for stress levels on its frame and hardware parts.
Tests performed: Ultimate Load Test; Stress Coat Testing; Strain Gage Data Acquisition; Cyclic Load Test; Fatigue Analysis.
These tests helped improve and assure the Voyager’s strength and safety.
Questions exist about the Voyager’s legality based on motorcycle vehicle identification codes generally reading, “…a motorcycle is every motor vehicle designed not to travel on more than three wheels in contact with the ground.” The Voyager’s legality is not found here.
The Voyager is legal under motorcycle trailer law, which states, “a non-motorized vehicle carrying persons or property being drawn or pulled by a motorized vehicle.” The Voyager is drawn from the motorcycle, carries persons (the rider and passenger) and property (the motorcycle).
Doesn’t a motorcycle trailer require a tag? Yes, if it is an extension of the motorcycle. The Voyager is not an extension of the motorcycle, therefore does not require a tag.
Also, the Voyager is legal under the United States Disability Act. This act states that any product or modification that allows people to operate a vehicle or system in a way that makes it safer for the operator and the public is legal. Disabilities include both height and strength, which are major causes for needing stability.
Changing From Bike To Bike
First, you need to make sure that the motorcycle you change the Voyager kit to uses the same frame size (A,B,C,D) as the motorcycle the Voyager kit is removed from.
Second, you need to purchase a mounting hardware kit specific to your motorcycle.
Third, you may need to purchase different size Voyager suspensions forks and/or leaf springs for the Voyager to fit correctly on your motorcycle.
If you have any questions call Motorcycle Tour Conversions, Inc. at (877) 434-7901. Necessary information includes the year, make, and model of the motorcycle the Voyager kit separates from and the Voyager serial number if available. Also, the year, make, and model of the motorcycle the Voyager transfers to is necessary.
Motorcycle Tour Conversions, Inc. guarantees and warrants no transfer upon any non-directed, custom Voyager modification.
Every style mounting hardware is unique to each year/model motorcycle. Different size Voyager suspension forks and/or leaf springs are required to accommodate different motorcycles.
A mounting hardware kit includes all receiver brackets (belly bracket, etc.), bearing receivers, hardware, installation manual, replacement axle bolt (if necessary), portable kickstand, shims and jack stands.
Typical cost: $660.00-1100.00.
The tall shocks on the back of the Voyager prevent the use of the lowered rear guards. Therefore, first, you need to purchase a retro fit suspension kit. These kits cost $80.00 and include the rubber shock mounts, shock mount plates, and hardware.
After you have changed your suspension the lowered rear guards can be used. There are two (2) choices: Standard metal rear guard – $250.00; or, Classic fiberglass rear assembly with Harley-Davidson style lights – $650.00 (wiring not included).
