- If you truck width is 4 ft then the diagonal should be 7.846 ft (91.586 in).
The overall length of the SWing is 7.46 ft (89.6 in) ... so in theory it should fit.
If you look at at full side profile of the SWing for example http://powersports.honda.com/2010/silver-wing/innovations.aspx ... the "overall length" would have to include the fender and read body panel of the SWing.
There was 2.9 in beyond the "overall length", but the end of the rear tire and
the end rear tire contact patch are both further in from the "overall length".
Without measuring and just estimating distance from "overall length" point to -
end of the rear tire may be: 6 - 9 in
end of the rear tire contact patch could be: 12 - 15 in
Based on these estimates the rear SWing weight would be 14.9 - 17.9 in inside the tailgate ... so there should not be any weight on the tailgate.
Whether it would ride with the tailgate up would be a completely different story.
