PostSubject: Can someone recommend a luggage strap solution?   Sun Oct 02, 2011 6:55 pm

HI, I decided to pass on the large luggage rack for now due to cost.
$140 seems excessive (from ebay, my Yamaha dealer, bikebandit.com, & that motorcycle rack website).
Or course I'd love one - but not for $140 - thats cuckoo. Its a pretty low tech piece of equipment. not sure why its so expensive.


So...until i hit the jackpot, I've decided to try to make use of those 4 little stubs under the rear fender rack with some bungies or stretchy straps. BUt wHen I tried using bungies, the only attached in an awkward way that seems like it would eventually damage the plastics over time.

Does anyone know of an elegant non-harful solution for strapping things onto that small holder on the rear fender (with bungies or straps or anything)

OR If there a yamaha strap product that I can use?

OR Is there a reasonably priced rack out there? (like $50 for new).
Thanks for any advice you have.

What I have used for a number of years now, is a Vecro product call "One Wrap". This stuff is GREAT! It comes in rolls, and can be cut to any length. One side of the 3/4" strap is corse hook and the other the fuzzy loop. I generally purchase the 12' roll at Lowes. Gerry

140 bucks not so bad... I work at a boat yard, top of the line copper antifouling paints run 300.00 a gallon. I put two coats on a 48' yacht today and used 4 gallons of the stuff. He'll have to do it again in two to three years. Right now with metal prices a 6x12 15lb plate zinc anode is over 50 bucks.

When I installed the rear (CycleRacks) rack on my TW I removed an OEM accessory rack that came with the bike... I'd be willing to part with it for a reasonable offer & shipping costs...

The rack looks brand new.... it is painted black & mounts on top of the plastic/rubber base on the TW's rear fender...

Reid, I am inclined to say, you are going to be left to your own imagination. As well, Ebay would be the best place to save on money as you can search for something used. The Velcro product that I discribed below works great for me and certainly should allow to hold something like a warm jacket to the back of your TW. Good luck. Gerry
