    Default Ryker Covers

    Has anyone purchased the CAN-AM OEM cover or the Nelson-Rigg Defender Extreme Full Cover? Any idea how much difference there is between the two? The OEM cover is about $55-60 more.

    My Rally will be stored in the garage but not sure if I need to cover it when I am at work? I don't see many 2 wheel motorcycles covered here is Fl where I work.

    I have not purchased either. The CanAm cover appears to be nicer but I'm not sure. I wouldn't cover at work here either and mine will be kept in my garage so it will get a King Sized sheet for a dust cover. Plus if you use either one at work you have to have a way to transport it and storage on the Ryker is very limited at best.

    I have the CanAm cover. I've used it for just over 2 months now.

    It seems pretty durable. It's done a good job keeping the rain off.
    It have the OEM windshield, the Lamonster mirrors, and a top case. The tryke is still completely covered.

    In short, I'm happy with my purchase.

    Thanks, I am guessing that it is too big to store in glove box?

    Does it fit OK with the windshield?

    Alright, you convinced me. I will order it from my dealer. He is giving me 10% off at purchase time so that will be less painful. Cant wait for pickup of my Rally on Friday.

    Would it fit a larger windshield?

    My Ryker 900 lives outside in Texas under the OEM cover. It takes me under thirty seconds to cover my Ryker after a ride. You may be able to jam the cover in the front box, but I would not recommend it. The cover comes with a small bag it can supposedly be folded back in to, but truth be told my son walked off with mine and I haven't used it. There is a zippered portion that allows for the cover to go over the windscreen, or in my case the Lamonster after market rear view mirrors. There are cinch straps on the back to tighten it up if you do not have a top case or passenger seat installed. There are two webbed straps on either side near the foot pegs that clip to themselves. I have not yet determined why they are there. I am happy to answer any other questions I am able.

    I have the BRP cover for my Ryker, I really only plan to cover the bike for winter storage. Otherwise it will sit under my carport.

    The cover is large enough to handle the trike and any accessory bags, windshield, etc Without difficulty.

    I also own 2 Nelson Rigg covers for my two wheelers. They are decently made, I would consider them mid grade covers. If they each last 2-3 seasons that would be fine, very inexpensive and cover my trunk, fairing, saddlebags well enough to protect. These two ride up a foot or so in gusty winds but have not blown off the bikes.

    SO the BRP cover is a better quality cover than the Nelson Rioggs?

    Correct. Too big for the glovebox. Maybe the topcase if you really squish it in there.

    I can only speak to the size of the BRP cover because I have seen pictures of it installed on another Rykers FB post. I won’t be using it until winter.

    I have a Nelson Rigg half-cover for my motorcycle. It's silver, which is a huge advantage in the blazing Arizona sun. It rolls up pretty tight and I keep it in my desk at work; about a half-hour or so after I get to work I go out and slap the cover on, gives the engine and exhaust a chance to cool.
    If I ride the Ryker to work I will definitely want a cover for it. The aforementioned sun, and also because people just can't restrain themselves from sitting on it when they pass by!!

    I have been using golf cart covers for my RT and now my Ryker since they are both stored in a garage, the are cheap $50 or less and they are able to be put on and taken off very easily. If I need a heavier cover for my RT I will use the factory storage / trailering cover, problem is the fitted covers leave no room for any extras.
