It was a long wait but the rack came today. It is very sturdy, good finish and good chrome job.

A couple of things for any newcomers though.

The kit was short a nut...Not a biggie but trying to find metric nuts in a hurry is challenging.

The big problem is the support arms. While they're the right length, the angle is off and they have to be bent forward about an inch. This has to be done off the bike. They're stout!

The screws to hold the support arms (and the fender struts) are too long and either have to be shortened or shimmed out. By that time I was getting PO'ed so I just used the old screws.

It took an hour to put it on but most of that was bend and fit time.
