Can I load up a motorcycle on the hitch if I'm using an extender? About 400lb bike

I have a 2006 full size and I need to take my motorcycle around on a carrier like this one http://www.walmart.com/ip/24093683?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227017355568&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=35466047676&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=50597546796&veh=sem
Problem is, the hitch is too short so I'll need an extension. How much will the 770lb tounge weight get reduced with a 6-8'' hitch extender? the carrier weights about 55lb itself.

Or should I even put that much pressure on the rear airbags given the age of the truck?

I don't know the answer to the question but I've GOT to see a pic if you do it of a Ducati 1098 on a hitch setup behind the Range.

Two great tastes that go great together!

I'd be more worried about the extension bar integrity than the truck or the hitch

I had the pin shear on an extender while towing an empty 8ft utility trailer. Never again.

what do you mean by extender? Just a long hitch to reach the underside of the truck? It should work I think. So if its reasonably behind the truck yeah but if you keep pushing it out like 4 feet from he back of the truck I think no. Tounge weight is 500lbs but that's I think conservative.
