There are companies that shuttle people and bikes, but only to the park entrance. Only another 3000' or so from there....

Google earth shows some non waipoli options that have potential. It's a big drop, so I don't want to have to turn around 1 mile from the hwy!
I have been past this gate
With permission but I've lost touch with the guy.
Take this a mile or so and there's a small trail going down hill. I'd have to hike the bike a bit but would cut a few miles off the road to Hana.
But I've done that, done waipoli, there's dirt out there that is new to me. Master Yoda says "do or do not, there is no try" Willi seeks dirt, Willi will find dirt, just don't wanna find trouble. Yea then I camp twice before passing wailuku and head back to Lahaina.
Yeah I'm in Maui right now and the way down to Kaupo via sliding sands and Kaupo Trail is mighty tempting!
Pretty sure the Sliding Sands trail and the associated trails in the crater were marked as no bikes. I was just in Maui (actually just got back in Texas this morning) and thought the trail would be fun on a bike, but that deep sand could also be a lot of not fun.
Maui is beautiful... I wondered the whole time how much off road riding there was and how much of it would be XC.
It's a single track in a national park...of course it's no bikes.
