tie down from the front bumper down to the trailer or from the upper a-arm down to the trailer and on the rear from the rear bumper where the three hole are to the trailer but i use ratchet tie down straps reg pull straps have a tendency to loosen up as the quad and the trailer moves around.....

Basically like Smooth1 stated; anywhere that would secure the bike to the trailer, sometimes you have to work around gas tank, extra wheels/tires

Not being a smart-ass, but the owner's manual tells you where to tie down at. I use the foot pegs.

one hint at tying down (if mine is in a trailer I go around the front of the frame just behing the bumper...as in put the whole strap thru that way both hooks are on the trailer and then I do the same on the back) but you want to make sure you take some of the movement out of the shocks when you do this, otherwise you will hit a bump and the suspension will rebound, which will cause the straps to loosen up, and BINGO, they could possibly come off. I also leave it in gear. BTW, SCUZZ is probably doing it the most correct way IAW the manual, but I don't like doing that b/c you can't take any of the preload out (not that it really should matter with strapping to that area).

I hook to my bumper and my grab bar... 4 straps to all 4 corners. Ratchet type straps rather than the crappy cam type.

I had a blonde moment, I thought he was asking where on the trailer are the tie down points.
