Just insled the Luggae Rack

Hi all. Just installed the Luggage rack last night. What a Workout!!! 1st factory bolt came out with no problem. 2 a little bit of difficulty. The Last one didn't want to turn. The 6mm Allen turned into a 1/4" as it rounded out. Had to use an Impact Driver and Hammer. Driving it forward and backwards several times. Eventually I was able to use a 1/2" Breaker Bar with socket to get it to come loose.
Installed the new Bolts, Docking Mounts and Spacers. Went to install the rack. Wasn't lining up correctly. Had to remove one of the Spacers(On the rear). Now its on. The Whole Project took about 1 hour. Called my dealer for advice. The Service Writer told me one of their Techs broke one of the bolts and had to drill. As a Courtesy I called him back today and told him I managed to get it to loosen.


Next Month I am getting the Sissy Bar and backrest. Hopefully before May 2016 I can get some Good Leather type bags. As I will be needing them for the MS: Coast The Coast Tour. I do Volunteer work. As a Motorcycle Escort. I carry a Tire Pump, Tool bag, First Aid kit, GPS, Etc.

@Tucsonmax1,


I had to remove two spacers to get mine to work. For what it may be worth the SADDLEMEN EXPRESS CRUIS'N TRUNK BAG fits nicely, on the rack, secured around the sissy bar with the attached Velcro strap and a couple of bungees from the bag D rings on to the rack frame.

I've installed mine - took only a few minutes

If you read the instruction sheet it actually tells you where to place the washers to make it line up properly - you have 3 options

Love the rack, I mixed it up and got the black pack rack and the chrome sissy bar - nice mix

From whr u purchased in India, generally all the sellers provide the necessary hardware required....u should check with him, if anything is missing....

As far as installation is concerned, its a child play, only think u need to take care abt is unscrewing ur stock screws, they might get tricky.....

I GOT THE POWER......
