Carrying bike up front and overheating?

Plan to carry bike on a front hitch on F350. Bike will have a cover on it. will this cause any problems with overheating?

Without a cover no problem, I just don't know about with a cover. Try it and if the temp increases stop and remove the cover.

I think you will have a problem with the cover. I carry my small motorcycle on a ramp in the front hitch on my PSD Excursion. While I have not had an over heating problem, you can hear the cooling fan for the radiator kick on more often and stay on longer.

My vote would be for less air flow across the radiator and a huge potential for cooling problems.
