Installed trunk w/o uplift kit???
Hi, all. I'm hoping that youn's can help me with what may or may not be a problem.
I just purchased a used trunk for my 2010 xc. I knew that I needed an uplift kit (or so I thought), so I had already ordered it so that I could install it when I was ready. When I brought the trunk home, I compared the trunk mount to the passenger backrest that I already had, they looked identical, so out of curiosity, I tried to put the trunk on before I installed the uplift kit. To my surprise, it fit right into place. I got to thinking... Maybe the original owner already installed the uplift kit. Another possibility: my bike was an insurance reclamation project. A lot of the body was redone by a Victory dealer, so possibly they used newer parts on my bike that made the uplift kit unnecessary.
Those of you who have used the uplift kit - would you have been able to put the trunk on without it?
The trunk fits perfectly, and the quick detach locks snapped right into place. I'm not sure what the purpose of the uplift kit is, but if it mine works fine without it, I'm not going to use it.
