I was so happy that all I had to do was remove the oem bolts from the backrest brackets and replace with the bolts that came with the rack. The fit was perfect and it took about ten minutes to complete the install
Got this rack to match the tubular Cobra sissy bar that is on my Roadliner. The rack has a very good finish and the installation was pretty easy. It adds a nice place for the tail bag that I purchased.
I have been looking for the perfect luggage rack, sissy bar, backrest pad and insert for my 2005 Honda VTX 1300 Retro, and this was THE product to get! Cobra has outstanding products and this one was no exception. The spectacular finish, the high grade steel, the perfectly drilled setup holes, were all up to the standard that I expect when shelling out this kind of money. I would definitely buy this again for another bike! The price may be a bit higher than some of the competition, but overall the value is good.
Great product. Very high quality, fit perfectly on my 2000 Vulcan Nomad and was installed before I could take a second sip on the brew. Very sturdy and well constructed. Looks great on my bike. Spent a long time on searching for a nice luggage rack and not only did the pics on the site help but it was delivered exactly when they said it would be. Great product and great company.
Really hesitated ordering because a bad fit would mean hassles. CS helped me determine I had a Cobra Sissy Bar. I ordered the luggage rack; very happy with it. Excellent quality.I installed it immediately which took about 10 minutes.
Outstanding fit, finish & function, and extremely easy to install. Installed this, along with a Cobra tall square sissy bar, to my 2012 Raider. Looks great, and will works perfectly with my Saddlemen sissy bar bag. I don't really care for saddlebags, and a sissy bar/luggage rack combination makes an extremely secure platform for a large sissy bar bag.
My bike came with a Cobra sissy bar (which took some time to determine, but the photos on DennisKirk helped) and I wanted a luggage rack to give my sissy bar bag some more support and to give me a spot to strap things to other than my seat. This rack fits the bill. It is very well made and matches the look of the bike very well. Not shown in the pictures is that there are two slots on each arm that provide another anchor point for bungee cords. Very handy. The only drawback is that the instructions make it sound easier to install than it is. It is easy, but I could not determine how to slide one side in, attach it and then repeat on the other. I remove the sissy bar and re-installed it with the rack.
Great chrome, great design. Mounts easily to the Cobra Short Round Sissy bar brackets (all purchased from DennisKirk.com). The sissy bar and plates are rather heavy, but expected. The rack though is strong yet surprisingly light.
The chrome and overall looks is outstanding. I don't keep it on the bike because for me, any rack detracts from the great lines of the bike. But when needed, it mounts using four bolts that attach the sissy bar to the brackets. Same bolts, nothing to save or lose. I should probably just leave it on, but I guess I am a bit vain in this regard.
Great product. And thanks again to DennisKirk.com for matching the price while still offering the super quick shipping, great customer service, and all the guarantees that go with purchasing from DK.com.
Purchased along with the Cobra tall sissy bar for my 09 Shadow Aero. Ordered on Sunday afternoon, arrived Wednesday afternoon; faster than my local shop could have gotten this in and at a MUCH better price. Fitment was EXACT and installed easily. Rock solid and looks great!!! Thanks DK!!
