Rear Pack Rack
« on: Jul 03, 2020, 10:30:38 am »
Found a second hand chrome one of these for sale here in the UK (by pure chance, rare as henís teeth!). Got it powder coated satin black, very happy with the over all look. Heavy cast alloy, quality bit of kit but no idea who makes it.

    Ironically, I had a spare one. They are genuine Yamaha I seem to remember.

    Any idea if they would fit the Stryker? Got a mate that might take it off you.

      No. They do not fit at all.  My wife has a Stryker and about the only thing that is interchangeable between it and my Raider are wheels, tires and mirrors.

      Looks Great, by the way this is what the original bolts look like. As you can see on this rack the chrome is junk. Yamaha's Chrome was junk IMHO

      Rick, I really think you saw a lot of issues many of us don't due to salt air and humidity.   I never saw that.

      The reason I powder coated my Yamaha engine guards was because they started to rust at the welds within a couple of weeks of installing them - Yamaha farms that stuff out to the lowest bidder that's what caused the lifter issues back in 09.

      Mine did the same thing, Gary. In fact I had bought a second set and they also rusted at the corner welds.
