    Default Luggage rack

    I'm planning to remove my luggage rack soon and I'm wondering if there are any helpful tips I could use. I'm guessing I'm going to have to drop the tank to get to it also.

    Anything tricky stuff I need to know?
    Drive it like ya stole it!

    Couldn't find anything in the AIM on this. They might have used Wellnuts in which case you can remove it from the topside.

    I don't know how you can best remove a luggage rack, but I do know that the holes will be virtually impossible to cover.

    Racks were not factory installed which is why they are not in the AIM.

    They unscrew from the top. Takes 5 minutes as long as nothing is rusted.

    Removed old rusted rack for new paint and had the old holes filled in and painted because i knew new rack holes probably wouldnt line up ...( different rack supplyers with different whole lineup ) .. been two years and still cant tell where old rack was placed.
