I spoke with my contact at Topline and she informed me that there is a good chance you would be able to accommodate your motorcycle that is 8 foot 2 inches long in the truck bed of your 2004 Toyota Tundra with this Fold Down Truck Bed Extender # BX4004-02.

You could make it work because you can install the mounting brackets to your tailgate in such a way that the entire system could be mounted as close to the edge of the tailgate as you would like. Basically, as long as the bed extender is centered on the tailgate you could install it very close to edge of your tailgate.

Another important thing to keep in mind is the curvature of your tire and the outward curvature of the # BX4004-02. The portion of your back tire that will be touching your tailgate will actually be several inches short of the full length of your motorcycle. And since the # BX4004-02 curves out and away from the truck, it will match the curvature of your motorcycle wheel to some extent also giving you the necessary clearance.
