    Switch to a Cycle Rack

    I found a Cycle Rack on Craigs. Everyone seems to dig them on this forum so it came home with me.
    This thing is huge! (and heavy 8lbs!). I suppose I won't have a issue mounting my Rigid box. To those that have them,does the rack get in the way offroad?
    At least now I can mount side bags easier. The military should be replacing the Humvee with TWs with racks instead of 250k JLTV trucks.

    I'm still keeping my OEM Yamaha rack for off road days
    87 TW

    I've got one on my 06. Never noticed it there offroad or on. I have removed my seat strap and sit way back on the seat most of the time and never hit it with my legs etc. Very handy grab handle and doubles as a crash bar for the rear part of frame!

    The CycleRack is also great off road. Nice to have something to grab onto when your stuck in the mud.

    CycleRack (and Jimbo Shield) should be standard equipment on a TW as far as I am concerned!
    elBuro, Tuber and WHS like this.

    The CR is a $200 add on that substantially increases the load carrying capacity of the TW rear. Your OEM rack is fine for carrying light loads but not much else. I never noticed the CR in my way off road however I never added side bags to a CR which I am sure would be in the way. Some here who have laid their TWs down on trails have found the rack can trap your legs but on the flip side they have also found the CR does protect the back end when you do go down. It is a completely personal purchase as to what rack fits your needs best. If all you need to carry is a gallon of milk or a 6 pack of beer the OEM rack is just about right. The CR can handle a couple cases of beer in a cooler with ice.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
