    Done.
    BTW - speaking of wood bikes, I remember seeing this Italian guy who built a Vespa out of wood. Not like that thing you posted, this thing was a running work of art. I posted pics somewhere on ADV. Took the guy like 4 years or something to build it.

    Can you post a pic of what the tail light rack looks light when installed and the blinker relocator as well?

    Thanks!

    Alright, finally figured it out. Thanks for the quick help, and I have to say that's a mighty fine quality rack you guys make.

    A big tip to whoever else out there might be installing for a TU250x though, is to first remove the turn signals, then remove the both the front and rear saddles, install the rack (so that it's easier to lift the fender to realign the frame bolts) and re-attach the rear seat before attaching the rear bolt clip, because that one screw in the back of the rear saddle gets in the way. Had to figure this out by trial and error, but in the end it was fun., thanks Pete K

    Got the tail light rack! How do I loosen the bolt that the rack is supposed to attach to? Or rather, what do I use to loosen that bolt? The interior hex looks huge and I have nothing in my toolbox that will fit inside it.

    Also, the loop bracket that is supposed to secure around the bar is too small! That bracket isn't big enough to go around the bar and line up with the holes on the tail light bracket and the rack. The bolts that came with it are too short to fit thru the loop bracket, tail light bracket and the rack.

    I'm gonna have to go to Home Depot to find some longer nylon thread bolts and perhaps another loop bracket.

    Thanks!

    we only have one size strap, sold a few hundred so far and they all fit , so get a allen wrench to take out the bolts then try again, and then if there is something wrong i can call you and see whats up ok, or if you cant figure it out we will buy it back no problem, get back to me mike

    Yep! Just got off the phone with the Man from Manracks and he was very helpful in determining the issue was the wrong size clamp and has already dropped off a new one in the mail. Thanks for your diligence and quick reply! That's the right way to run a business!

    UPDATE 6/12/12
    Got the new part from Manracks and everything fits perfectly. The tail rack is great and not very obtrusive so it fits the lines of the bike pretty well. And I got the blinker bracket as well. Everything looks and fits great! Definitely worth the money!
