Dunno where else to ask this.

I have a trailer similar to this http://www.trailershopper.com/index.php?page=images&id=61138&f=61138.jpg

With the trailer axle biased towards the rear, is is better to have the heavier bike up front or in the back?

Hauling a Rap 700 and an 250R ATC. Raptor is probably 450lbs and the ATC I would guess is 300-350? With the Raptor up front I would assume tongue weight around 200lbs which is fine but I never learned what the optimal bias is.

it doesn't really matter but I would put the heavier quad in the front to keep some of the trailer weight on the pickup. you don't want the trailer trying to tip back you want it to rest down on the hitch.

I agree. The heavier one in the front.
I had to move my axle back on my trailer to get more tongue weight. Otherwise it fishtailed.
