    Hi rick,

    I am happy with my rack, but have a suggestion or two.

    I put rubber [old bike tube] underneath the spacers so they wouldnt mark the plastic bmw silver rack.

    The black bolts you suppied fit perfect, but after a month they have started to rust a bit. What are they made of?

    Thanks

    I got my rack. I did not include postage. Rick gave me oop's what ever responce. His loss. The price was clear $+postage. I finally battle tested the rack on Socal's 405. Lane splitting with a duffle (idiot). Quick re-strap to longways and I was off again.

    Rack performed as advertised. I sent the follow up postage. To do otherwise would have been chicken-shit.:eek1

    Rick my man, the rear rack is great! :clap I would have posted sooner but I'm a noob to posting pictures and can't get them to upload. I'll try to post something in the next few days to show it off.

    I put the rack on in <5 minutes and have already put 75 lbs. of dog food on the rack with no problems! Hey, I just wanted an excuse to use it without putting on all of my camping gear.

    It adds another dimension to the ability of these bikes and I love it. I got it just in time too! Another day or three and I would have been to used to the factory look....plus, I'd say it's about perfect size for a Hamm's Chest!

    Thanks again Rick, the pleasure was all mine, I'll try and get those pics up!

    Hello Rick! I've got a '07 R1200GSA with factory racks and cases. I want to replace my top box with a rack like the one you're showing but probally a little larger. Would you build something like that? - Thanks, John

    here's some photos of the rear brake reservoir cover. It's a nicely made little item.. The fit was good although possibly a little off to one side but that may be the face of the bolt pushing it toward the rear. The stock bolt can still be used with the added cover but I'll be replacing it with a slightly longer bolt to make sure the bolt threads all the way into the mount.

    it's solid and well made, and with the top and bottom sections you get complete coverage. As a bonus the top of the cover can keep vandals out of your brake fluid if that's ever been a concern for you..

    This was my first item from Kildala and I would definitely buy other parts he comes up with after seeing this one.
