Agreed most of the ratchet ones should be ok for what you are using them for (i.e. not supporting more than 100-200 lbs). Ancra makes the best clamshell type I think that I have 10 of them. I have a few of the no name ones that I have acquired over the years and I only use them if I run out of the Ancras.

I have a suggestion.....trade the Ninja for a dirt bike and you will be all set no worries about over loading the rack :tonka:

if i saw a crotch rocket tied to the back of an XJ, i dont think i would even be in the same lane. If you are really digging the bike rack i would fab some supports to put on the side of your jeep, the whole roof rack thing is a little sketchy
