Been a while since I used mine, but I did something that eliminated the soft chords to wrap around for protection, darn CRS, I may have cut the hooks off one end and looped that around the upper fork section, can't remember for sure but look at yours, that might work...
I always just centered my bike, put it on the side stand, and installed the left side strap just near snug then went to the right side and strapped it till I was verticle or about 1/2 fork compression, put the side stand up, 1/2 arse did the rear, and away...lol...
BTW-My Silverado ext cab has factory tie downs in all 4 corners... I load and unload with a folding ramp, and the ramp stores folded flat beside the bike in the bed...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
