SPACERS??!!!

When did they appear in the kit??  :230:

I never got any with mine so ended up having cut the tray so the metal plate bolts up to the underside of the grab rail....  :019:

No wonder my rack never lines up properly!!!

Anyone else got these spacers - or the dimensions???

My Ventura rack came just yesterday for my 2017, good to see pictures of it fitted, shame I'm going to have to put the standard tail back on, no chance that'll fit with my r&g tail tidy!

Right, so after an afternoon of faffing about in the garage, trying all types of bolt/ washer/ spacer fixing arrangements, I can confirm that on a 2015 model, if you have the standard panniers, the Ventura rack AND a R&G tail tidy (for the indicators etc) you can’t use any spacers for the rack and you have to cut more of the under-tray. I’ve taken loads of photo’s if anyone wants specific details so let me know.

I can also confirm that it’s far too easy to strip the thread in the rear mounts of the grab rails…….  :430:

Just as a side note (and not wishing to hijack the original thread but) – which way round for the top box (I know one way is technically wrong and will limit removal of the pillion seat, SWMBO has her own bike so no need for the seat) but I’m interested in the collectives thoughts……

I would put it over the seat,  better weight distribution

Hi Ventura just emailed me to say they don't supply a top box rack for a 2017 model. What parts did you order so I can do the same. Thanks Sid
