Got a question; what's the rear tail rack connected to, specifically the more forward braces that seem to disappear behind the integral cases?

Any chance you can PM me a pic of the attachment point?

I have a mono too, and the tail rack is connected well in the back, but the front is only connected onto the plastic cowl, which means it's only good for bags strapped to the rear seat and small loads on back. I've never seen a good tail rack brace on our bikes with those Integral case holders.



Thanks -

Question New to me as of 2 weeks ago - question about seat release

76 R90/6 mildly cafed- owned now about 2 weeks

Very cool seat, however the button to the left of the lift handle (the one that seems to be made of brass) seems to be frozen -

I have tried the ig,. key in the lock - it turns slightly but does not allow release -

Has anybody else had this issue?

Zodiac........This is how I made my rear carrier. I welded a tab on each pannier rail, so that the cross over is able to screw onto it.

But what about the forward attachments? If they're like mine (see my pic above), they're only holding onto the cowl plastic.

Reason I ask is when I connect a top box to mine, the tail flexes badly due to the connections up front. The rear is fine as mine is also connected to the steel tubing brace right above the tail light.

Dont know what's going on there. My rear cowl has no stress fracture's and no flexing, it's rock solid. Is the top box frame strong enough?

Cowl's fine, no fractures. I think mine is also much further back than yours, at least where the weight of the topbox is.

I posted in that thread, the H piece worked out nice. My top box was a bit bigger - an E36 GIVI.

Thanks for the comments, now if I could figure out how to get the seat opened I would like it even more.
