Hi, I'm new to this forum and am looking for a luggage rack for my bike. Was wondering if anyone had any suggestion.

 

Thanks, Ben

Hi Ben,

I’m in New Zealand and have a Ventura Rack and Pack System that I bought here.

Very sturdy and well made.

In Auckland today we have an orange/red sky from the Aussie Bush Fires. It is currently 3.45pm and we are having to have lights on inside our house and this is Summer Time !

Cheers

Jeff

Welcome to the Forum, Ben.

Good luck in getting a rack. Many posts about them on the forum and also quite a few ideas about making one yourself. biggrin

Hey!

I ended up building one since I couldn't find one that looked sturdy enough. If you're interested in the process, the thread about it is here: ttr250.activeboard.com/t65018094/van-bike-rack/

Sorry, I think we've had a bit of a misunderstanding I'm looking for more of a luggage rack.

For example: https://cycleracks.com/collections/rear-motorcycle-racks/products/yamaha-ttr250-rear-rack

Hello, a short while back Diggermanbob imported some from Aus and he had one left. Might be worth a msg to him. I have one on my bluey.

Ben, where are you? I have on from my Raid. I think it is OEM. I'll send some photos when I get home this evening. Give me a price you're happy with. Oh, you'll have to pay shipping from Japan....

I had a B & B alloy rack on my TTR, but when I bought the WRR I removed it to sell the bike, managed to sell the rack but not the bike. Would you believe I ordered another B & B rack last night.

the B&B are a great bit of gear , i stopped off at telegraph point this morning as they used to operate from there , it looks like they only operate from the address on their website .

 They had 20% discount for Australia day, new rack on it's way, if only I had not sold the old one...but then the TTR was to be sold because I bought the WRR so I still have both...winner winner chicken dinner...LOL

Cheers Terry

I got both B&B parts on mine and the bits to allow me to fit my givi top box.

No problem at all getting both parts in black shipped to UK from Aus.

Some pics with and without the top plate, I reckon it’s the  best looking rear rack, but at a price !!

 Looking good, the screen looks great, that seat has a nice profile, is it a custom seat ?

Thanks Terry, it is a custom seat that I bought off someone on this forum. When I had the original blue cover off though it was clear it had only had one cut from the original profile, perhaps using electric carving knife and smoothed off with sanding disc folded over. Easy. Since then I have re-covered it using one of the TotallyTTR covers. It took me all day but came out good in the end when I realized hair dryer was essential tool ! Cheers

Got another delivery from postman Pat, well B&B offroad.

So between getting home from work & cooking tea on the BBQ I fitted the rack...BTW was 45c on the way home from work

You can get a larger alloy plate that bolts onto the rack

Ben. It's probably been too long. However, here are some photos.

Also put photos of the grab handles.
