    Default Luggage Rack for 2016 Can Am Spyder RT Limited

    Hello fellow Spyders, looking for a luggage rack that will fit a 2016 Can Am Spyder RT Limited. The rack I seek will be supporting a Kuryakyn Grand Pet Palace, Dimensions are 18.5" L x13"W x 14"H.

    Help will be deeply appreciated especially by our new micro sheepadoodle puppy.

    Thanks to all,

    Buchton

    Check out the CA040 Rivco expandable Racks Buchton - https://www.rivcoproducts.com/shop/c...ca040bk-black/

    Not only are they very handy, easy to fit, and work really well as luggage racks, BUT THEY ALSO noticeably reduce the amount of spray & road mush that gets sucked up into the turbulence behind your Spyder & then dumped down your pillion's neck when you're ryding on wet roads/in the rain!

    I have this rack in Safety chrome. We use it on all long trips and it works perfect.

    I have the rear luggage rack from Diamond R Accessories, https://diamondraccessories.com/shop/. I prefer the type that sits horizontal to the ground, not angling downward.

    We also use the Rivco rack shown in Peter's link with our Pet Palace and Harley loves it. He has a great view and can duck out of the wind when it gets uncomfortable. Highly recommend this system for a small dog.

    I believe Lew has the same rack as the one I linked & packerfan shows above, Buchton; only like packerfan's, mine is black, Lew's is chrome.

    Here's the Chrome Rack: https://www.rivcoproducts.com/shop/c.../ca040-chrome/

    Here's the Black Rack again: https://www.rivcoproducts.com/shop/c...ca040bk-black/

    Btw, I looked at but then chose the Rivco Rack over the Diamond R Rack that Scott linked partly because of the Rivco Rack's 'more substantial & load spreading' attachment points (didn't want to risk breaking my trunk lid!) but the Diamond R version is also quite workable for a 'trunk top pet carrier', and it does look purdy!

    Hello Buch,
    I've have had the Rivco rack for years. It is sturdy, chrome, allows the high mount brake light to shine. I have also mounted flag holders to it. The other one mentioned here is pretty ( and full of air space). BUT---- couldn't put our dog ,Kaos , who is pictured in the avatar any where near it.
    Mounting is straightforward and I did mount is about 1/4" higher than the plans called for. any other questions. I didn't have a link in my OP???

    Lew L
    BTW: I personally wouldn't put more than 10 pounds on it. We put 2 rain suits, 1/2 cover, and a few sundries in a light wt. bag.
    Kaos----- Gone but not forgotten.
