installing a ventura pack rack
Time needed: about 30 minutes
Go ahead and remove the passenger peg bolt (8mm hex head socket).
The trick is that the handle-looking thing on the rack is going to slide into the frame just behind the fender bolt. Here's the main idea (note: I'm just holding the rack up in place; nothing's bolted on yet).
OK, now that you know what's going on, go ahead and unfasten that rear fender bolt (10mm). There'll be a little washer on the inside; don't lose that. You'll be putting it back on soon.
Now take the rack and slide it into place. Make sure that the bolt hole in the frame and the one on the rack line up properly.
Take the supplied bolt (6mm hex) and thread it through the rack. Take the washer that you didn't lose earlier and put it, and then the nut, on. Tighten everything down good and tight.
Put your passenger peg bolt back on, through the rack bolt hole, and tighten that puppy down. Now's also a good time to put your rear fairing back together.
Now you're set! The Ventura rack slides right onto the mounting racks, and tightens down with the screw and locknut (on the mounting racks).
