Luggage rack - what am I missing?


Recommended Posts

Received a luggage rack today. Looks like I'm missing something from the frame that it mounts to. Can someone advise?

yes reverse the brackets so the 2 reinforced mounting holes are forward. They attach to the muffler hanger frame mounting points. Install those first. You'll need longer bolts as I recall to get through everything. I had to remove the rear seat cowel to not damage it getting the bolts in/out. Once the brackets are on, attach rack.

LOL, yes you are right Paul. Must have been bolted on that way for easier shipping. Anybody got a good picture  or instructions of how it's attached to the inside rider peg brackets?

also.... trying to recall as it's been awhile since install/removal .... the brackets curve mount as a 'frown' as apposed to a smile. The raised bits on the bracket is a spacer and goes inside the frame mount for the muff hanger, onto the longer bolts you've installed. need lock nuts to secure brackets.

Ditto on removing the cowl to avoid scratching..they scratch easilyand that one has/had no scratches ( not that difficult to remove like 6 easy access bolts)

Here's some pictures of  the mounts on my bike. You can see a bit of paint blistering where I ground some clearance on the mounts for something nearby.

Excuse the grime.  I've always wondered what Docc does to keep his bike looking so nice? :unsure: Maybe he can share the secret:oldgit:

Oh, easy! You just need to get all those pesky extra parts out of the way to get the Q-Tips into the tight spots . . .

I like that edged tray and support stand setup docc, just what I need to keep from loosing all those "roll away" parts.
