What do you mean by not getting a new "carrier". I am waiting on my dealer to call me back about replacing my backrest because I do plan on putting a luggage rack on it in the future.

if you didnt have one in the first place then you wont be bolting it
on the new one.or just keep the old one and dont worry about it.

does the new one have holes for the luggage rack? I was originally told it was only effected if it was with a specific luggage rack, but the letter I got yesterday says any. I have a luggage rack I made myself and am leaving for a week long trip in a week. not sure what I should do.

you should be fine , i still have yet to see one of the trouble backrests. i do believe it is a direct replacement backrest thats beefed up some and the luggage rack bolts on. it pretty much has to because its a recall on the backrest itself and not rack so the rack should transfer over.

The other Vic site has a guy who posted the new backrest and it is slightly different. It has 3 mounting holes in it for a backrest and not two like the original. I don't think the original luggage rack will bolt up to the new backrest or vice versa. I am still going to push for a new backrest if possible.

That's what I'm most concerned with. If I EVER decide I want a rack, am I SOL with the old style backrest? I think they should replace them all to avoid confusion/future issues (or lawsuits if the worst happens).
I haven't talked to my local dealer about it yet since they have not had the Vic franchise that long. I may have to call around to get a straight answer.

Your dealer should coordinate with mine. Mine has racks, but no backrests. The way Ma Vic has handled this, from the beginning, is not very confidence inspiring. The lack of communication, the lack of replacements, even keeping dealers in the dark is reprehensible.

I got a second recall letter in the mail a couple of days ago basically repeating what the first letter said. I states that if you have a luggage rack or have even had a luggage rack at one time then you are eligible for the recall but it says if have never had a luggage rack then don't worry about it. To me this says that all backrests are eligible becuase how the hell are they supposed to know who put on a friends luggage rack for a week long trip and gave it back to him when he got home or who bought one and ran it for a year and then sold it. I think they are wording it the best way they can so not as many people come running in to get a new backrest. I also think they are opening themselves up to a lawsuit if they don't replace all backrests no matter if they had a luggage rack or not.
