    Default Ryker Road Glide Rack Mod

    Posting here in case you missed it on Facebook (DIY Ryker Mods): adapting a 2009-2020 Road Glide fender rack to the Ryker. It came out pretty nice IMHO, given my skill level and tools.

    This is the rack I bought:

    That looks fantastic. A great option for a Ryker without the Max Mount

    Looks good, like it was made for the Ryker.

    Tempts me to pull my Max Mount. Been looking at ways to add small bags to mine. Currently just have an expandable trunk zip tied to the Max - it works, but a flat mounting surface would be killer, and strapping bags to the rack's rails would be easy.

    Great handholds for a passenger too. Add footpegs and a "p" pad and yer ready to roll!

    PS ... looks like the only custom piece would be the side plates for mounting. Here's what the rack looks like from the factory. I'd also be tempted to just use pegs into the bike's frame and use the stock rack's quick removal latches.

    Half a million miles, and I ain't dead yet.

    I believe this could be easily adapted to the Ryker...

    I just re-read your post...I would advise against using that rack for anything over about 30 lbs or so. The MFR- in a Chinese sort of way, appears to be implying a 10 lb load rating, which I believe is under stated. The rack I bought (link in OP) is rated by the MFR for 30 lbs.

    Thanx for the heads up ... what's a twelve pack and a pizza weigh anyway? ;-}
