Anyone happen to recognize what make this rack is? I am trying to find an exact match to replace it due to rust. I am finding several racks on line but am afraid the holes will not line up as the pattern appears different.

Thanks,
Ed

Maybe measure distance from hole to hole and check against what the seller has. I have the same type but don't know the brand

I also have that rack.
P.O. was a Markland & Kuryakynfanatic,
maybe search there/that? :?

PICTURE are the 2 that look alike but are not the same. The forward mount is different.
Even tho the one bar is bent inward at the rear, the mount spacing should be the same. Manufactures don't change mount positions if it's just a minor design update.

One website stated the mount was 8.5 inches.

If you are only replacing because of rust, then why not get it powder coated the same color or matching color or just rechrome it. It will be cheaper than replacement

Before you get rid of that rack get some clr (Calcium Lime Rust )& Then get some of the red scotch brite & I think your rack will be fine I think that rust is just surfice rust & by doing it this way youll be saving some money & no turning of any bolts ! you can getsome CLR at walmart or grocery store usually with the cleaning supplys & Red scotch brite ace hardware or bodyshop supply house !

The PO of my scoot seems to have bought a ton of the add ons from chromeworld.com. If you haven't found what it is yet check Chrome World Item #2075 - looks like it could be the same one from the pix in their catalog but doesn't say who makes it.

Is it chrome or polished stainless? My rack is stainless and it looked terrible when I bought the bike. Rust everywhere. A scotchbrite pad and my polishing kit made it look new again.

Your best bet is to have it powdercoated or re-chromed, I am going through the same thing right now. I tried a bunch of different ones at Americade last year and none where exactly the same.

That is the same rack that is on my bike. The PO was a Kuryaken fanatic so I have to assume that is what it is. Everything else on the bike has Kury..... stamped into it.

The front of yours (the mounts in particular) looks totally different than the OP's.

I'm surprised you don't have star washers under the legs of that rack Rudy.

Thanks guys. Well the rust is not a surface rust issue. Bottom line is I messed up. I purchased one of Rudy's kits to strengthen my lid. When I was removing the rack, one of the screws was heavily rusted and broke off in the hole. I tried to grab it with vice grips, but it broke again. I then tried to drill it and use an extractor, but the extractor broke off in the hole. I then tried to drill a new hole so I could just tap new threads. I went a little crazy with the drill and now I think I am going to have to buy a new rack.

The one on Ebay looks like it, so I may just try to get it.

Thanks,
Ed

+ 1 :cooler: A little bit of copper ant-seize works great on a lot of bolts where water intrusion, or different mating metals (spark plugs)are encountered, to prevent galling.
