I have a 2017 MDX with the Acura hitch installed. I'm trying to find a Thule or Yakima 2-bike rack to fit into the Acura hitch, but am concerned that this hitch does not have the minimum 1.5" required distance between the end of the hitch and the center of the receiver hole. Has anyone successfully installed a Yakima or Thule 2-bike rack in the Acura OEM hitch? Should I look at the Acura hitch? Many thianks

I have used various bike racks on both of my Acuras equipped with factory hitches, no issues..

I have used older hitch mounted racks without issue, but on another thread posters have reported issues with new racks that have fancy twist-handles on the end to tighten the hitch mount. It might have been on Piloteers cuz I have both MDX(s) and a Pilot. I think what Yakima calls the "locking Speedknob" is the issue.
