Ronnie Lyons' Luggage Rack and Back Rest

All steel racks and backrests, finished in black powder coat. Stainless nickel hardware and simple 5 minute installation.

Backrest with rack

  • Lyons backrest is 11" tall vs only 6" for the factory backrest
  • Factory backrest can be used with the Lyons rack
  • Two slots in rack allow you to bolt on the Givi Z-255 adapter plate
  • 6 slots around perimeter of rack for attaching bungee cords
  • Ronnie's unofficial testing indicates that the rack can carry a 185 pound man.
  • In order to perform front end work on the bike, Ronnie puts a 100 pound bag of kitty litter on the rack to raise the front end.
  • Ronnie should use the rear half of the seat, not the rack, to carry his passenger and obviously has a larger cat than I do.
  • Installation is by simply sliding the rack over the grab handle mounts and attaching with a U-bolt on each side.

Backrest without the rack

OK, you've asked for them, now they're here. Concours backrest, welded of steel and powder coated black. The backrest is 12 inches tall, and installs in 2 minutes. Pad is finished in same material as your stock seat, with stainless hardware.
