The distorting was from the heat on the sides that I think are basically plastic. They will geta wrinkled look to them when they're too hot. It'll go back into place, but as soon as they're hot again they get the same look. Now keep in mind I'm also in AZ.MPM said:Ares X-
Thanks for the heads up on the bags, I guess I will keep an eye on them. Maybe use some UV protectant on them hopefully slow the distortion and damage down.
Most manufactures will put a sticker on the luggage rack indicating will not support more than 10 lbs. which is fricken rediculas!! The sticker is there to keep people from sitting on them, and breaking the unit, and blaming them for poor workmanship. It is designed for luggage not people!! I have used mine with 50-60 lbs. of T-baggage several times over thousands of miles. I have used the Star, and Cobra brand racks with best results.MPM said:Thanks for the comments.
I will be looking into make some customizations soon.
1st on the list is removing the warning stickers from the tank and luggage rack.
2nd will be to drill the exhaust for now.
