Well, I had great success installing the Engine Guard, Windshield, and Saddle Bags on my XR-1200. Tonight's project was to install the cool looking luggage rack add-on. Unfortunately, I already had the saddle bags installed which had to be partially UNINSTALLED in order to reach the Torx 45 bolt which holds the lower frame of the luggage rack to the chassis of the bike.
The installation of the luggage rack requires that you remove the seats and the seat pylon. Then you have to remove the screws which hold on the turn signals. THESE ARE INACCESSIBLE!!! Thus, I removed the entire taillight, turn signal assembly which required disconnecting 3 wire harnesses (one for the tail light and one for each turn signal).
The next step is to remove two 2.5" Torx head bolt/nut sets from the back of the chassis. If you have the saddlebags or the bungee bars installed, you must unbolt the back bolts of them in order to access the two 2.5" bolt/nut sets that you have to remove for the luggage rack installation. My advice is to INSTALL THE LUGGAGE RACK FIRST AND THEN INSTALL THE SADDLEBAGS!
The rest of the installation was fairly straightforward despite the HORRID diagrams and pictures provided in the so-called "instructions". Also, the gang of idiots who write the instructions have absolutely NO skills whatsoever in giving clear, concise directions for a task. Harley needs to fire these jackasses post-haste. I often think that Harley writes horrid documentation so that the dealers will have an "edge" in installing confused customers' accessories.
Another brilliant piece of advice that I can give potential buyers of the XR-1200 is to have your dealer install these accessories at no charge as part of the "deal" that you make with them. Let their technicians suffer instead of you doing the suffering.
