    I have a question for you guys with a front cyclerack, I'm trying to see if one will clear the scoops on my XT225 tank.

    On the bottom mount, from the center of the mounting bolt, how far out does the mounting bracket come to where it makes the 90 bend, and then how far forward does it go to where it's welded to the rack? Hope that made sense. Thanks in advance

    Oh the little front rack is finished I suppose...for now. I'm thinking I want a cyclerack to mount some small bags up front for longer trips. Might be a waste of time, ya never know

    I've often wondered why Cyclerack designed the front rack like they did. If you put anything on it your headlight is blocked. I could see it for packing stuff into the outback but for road trips it doesn't look functional. It seems like a rack just above the headlight would be better.

    It was designed to add ballast to the front when hauling heavy loads out of rough country, (Elk quarters) You can just strap a big rock on there when needed to get your kill out of the boonies.

    IF this idea works out, I'll get in touch with you. But I'll keep things in the planning stages for a while

    I have both front and rear cycleracks. I mounted my windscreen (recycled jetski ) off the rack, and find it an effective pull point when buried in the muck and need to be pulled out by a 4-wheeler. Alaska is in general a large swamp and I ride with 4-wheelers mostly. rw

    Hi r80rt,



    I am not 100% sure I understand where you want the measurements. My first photo is looking down at the bracket in question with the dimensions I think you want.



    However, if those are not the dimensions that you want, attached are some more photos so you can tell me what you are looking for.



    Sorry about the photos – it is a bit dark outside.

























    On the inside:

    THANK YOU! That's just what I needed. I can make a mock up and see if it will clear my tank shrouds. I do appreciate the pic's and measurements!.
