SW-MOTEC trunk rack dosen't fit right.
I just received my trunk rack from Twisted Thorttle for my '09 Versys and had to drill out the mounting holes for it to fit. Otherwise, it just sits on top of the screw holes when you try and put it on. The handrails on the Versys sit down over the mounting holes so I had to drill out the mounting holes on the SW-MOTEC trunk for it to fit right. Everything else is fine, but be aware this problem.
Here is what I sent Twisted Throttle.
I called this morning about this problem which I have since taken care of. I ordered a trunk rack for my 2009 Verysys (exactly like the 2008 model except color) and had to drill out the mountng holes to 9/16" in order to place the rack porperly on the Versys. The mounting holes are too small to mount the rack properly.
The Versys grab rails are counter sunk so the mounting points slide over and down on the screw holes. The Rack you sent me will only sit on top of the screw holes so I had to drill them out to fit or send the rack back to you. I chose to go ahead and drill them out to fit instead of returning it.
This rack might work on the Kawasaki Ninja and ERN but not on the Versys without drilling it out. I hope you correct this problem before you send any more out for the Versys or notify those purchasing it about the problem. I am posting this notice on the Kawasaki Versys forum to alert other riders.
