    Yeah, I need the room. But the ATO rack is good.

    OK more pictures, not very good but hopefully you will see why the Givi under top plate support brackets will not fit.

    But as I have noted, I'm not worried. The ATO construction is so much stronger in this area than the OEM rack.

    Not necessarily. S/S will rust and also magnetic. Depends on what ya buying for the job. I ordered specifically for the job.

    Added SW Motech rack on it today. I ground the spacers down to sit flat instead of drilling out the ATO rack. Drilling SS is no fun. Now I can hold my cold Sierra Nevada. That is a Mosko Back Country 30 in the front, I carry tools and tire stuff in it and can expand it greatly. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I got it just to make the bike look better. I hate the looks of the stock rack.

    Never understood when people feel compelled to inform that ''SS will rust.'' Eeeyaaa, but the difference is night and day between that and say mild steel. Much less attention needed. Equipment I maintain is in a marine environment and SS makes corrosion control SO much easier. We're talking about the difference between very light surface rust vs exfoliation, but yeah, bettter not even bother because ''stainless will rust.'' What a completely pointless position to take.

    304 stainless steel is highly corrosion resistant -- it won't rust itself but can if ferrous materials become embedded in it during machining or grinding. 304 is non-magnetic.

    Anyone have the link to the install video?
    I looked but couldn't find it again.
    Maybe it could be added to the first page?

    Has anyone mounted one of these on a 2017?
    I am going to look closer in the morning but right now mine doesn't look like it lines up. The front two bolts are much wider and the rear two are studs with nuts, not bolts.

    The ATO rack has been installed on several 2017 ATs. The OEM rack and attachment hardware are the same for 2016-2017.

    19 and 20 in the 2017 diagram are incorrect.
    Not the first time this models documentation was not accurate.
    See this...

    Those are studs, not top down bolts.

    Its a tight fit up front on them two. Take your time, use anti seize on all the bolts. If needed you might drill them out a bit but it is stainless, never fun to drill.

    Looks like studs from hoop supports are pushing rack forward. Get under fender and beat that thing straight. :D

    Got it figured out. I had to spread the bottom tabs for the 10mm bolts. It was hitting one side.
