I think in terms of trunk you cant beat the OEM. There about 1700 from the dealer (give or take). Others I have seen are all custom fabricated.

@broggyr has one on his bike , I believe the Kuryakn model if I'm not mistaken , looks and performs awesome on his XCT . Hopefully he will chime in on this ...

I have one on my bike from Witchdoctors. I like it well enough. I installed it by myself, which worked out fine, but it would have been better with another set of hands.

I find his site the darned place to find stuff the way he has it organized.

I did find the rack though, thanks

I agree that it could be better. Best bet I have found is to use his search feature and then narrow it down.

Not only will I chime in, here's the entire thread on it :D :D

I tried the Harley rack but either it's weak or I'm strong because I broke 2 of the legs off when "gently bending" them to fit the XCT trunk.

Don't bend them.

I used some simple extension sleeves and longer bolts I got from Lowes. For the minimal angles at the base/trunk, the little black 'bushings' (or whatchamacallits) handled that. I drilled the holes straight to the rack legs rather than perpendicular to the edge of the trunk lid.

Works for me and I've had a lot more weight on it than is recommended for the trunk capacity itself.

That's a good price. How was the fit & finish? Would you recommend it?

Thanks!
I'm at almost 3 years without any issues.

Whatever you do, always install a much larger washer or fabricate something as a 'brace' or 'support' for the underside of the trunk lid where the bolts go. This helps to distribute pressure out over a wider area and will prevent cracking at the bolt holes.

BTW, I'm not 100% certain mine is exactly the same as the link I posted. I think mine is a little narrower and I got it direct from the Harley shop but I couldn't find that item on their site.

I went with Kuryakn rack, mostly because of the price. Its strong and well made. No regrets!
