Default XCT trunk rack

Just installed Kuryakyn's trunk rack. The installation instructions are not much help! They say to put tape on the trunk where you want to drill. be sure it's in the right location before you drill. Measure twice drill once. Kuryakyn is not responsible for any damage. OK THEN!! WTF! I used graft paper and plotted the bars from a center line. Simple and accurate.

The lines represent the mounting bars. I adjusted the legs from there.

I used blue painters tape instead of graph paper, but I measured three times before drilling lol

NICE! I had the back rest pad off, (having it recovered}, and noticed a center mark from the mold. That's when the graph thang hit me... Wish I would have had them recover my trunk when I had the my seat done, but I actually thought I would not use the trunk much. Man was that wrong! Now I never take the trunk off, and need a rack for my camping gear! This one seems very solid and well made!

I thought, with those clamps and such that maybe it wouldn't be so sturdy. I was proven wrong; this rack is a beast!

Looks good! I put a Harley rack on mine, $109 - added the extenders for the Gold Wing from Kurykan so total cost was $141.00 Cdn. Had to tweek the standoffs slightly ( no big deal) - I like it as the $50 Kuryakan bag fits like a glove! Plus I'm cheap!

Looks good!! Wish I had been aware of that optional configuration when I purchased my bike. At the time I went with the Victory trunk rack, which isn't much for the dollars spent.

Hope you put big around fender washers under the rack to give it strength

I have 3/4" washers sitting on 1" rubber cushions. They came with the kit. I'm just guessing at the size, but they are close to that.
