My nickname used to be Better-Packer. I just carry lots of quarters. I get my jeans starched and ironed so I can wear them more than once. Plus, I really don't mind wearing filthy clothes.

Air Wing Rack LED Light Kit

Custom fit to the Air Wing Tour-Pak® Rack, this fast acting LED Light Kit operates as a supplemental rear running light and brake light. The high, center-mount position places the rear light in the line-of-sight of following vehicles, and the bright, fast-acting LED lamps get you noticed. Wiring is concealed inside the rack tubes for a clean, custom installation.

Just Sayin.
Is your wife going? Mine is.



How much weight can I really put on the rack without breaking stuff? I'm not worried about the rack. I mean like overloading the tour pac top and associated bits and pieces.

Sounds like a winner, Dan.

I'll have to check this out when I get at ES. I will have my TourPak on as well...

I put the leather rollbag full of clothes on the rack and that's about it,... 15lbs maybe? Personally, I don't think I'd ever put anymore than that. Its well known that the hinges on the TourPak lid are flimsy. That said, I try not to open the lid with the rollbag attached,... especially with the bike running.

Is it the hinges themselves or the way the hinges are attached to the tour pac that gives problems?

It's the hinge's attachment to the tour-pak.
I have a Dekker Supreme I use on trips and I just open the tour-pak (if I have to) enough to get what I need, bike off, and I don't let the weight rest on the cable since I don't open it all the way.

Ok. So here's how I understand the hinge situation. Problems arise when opening the top with a load on. The hinge mounting will support more weight so long as the top remains closed or I remove the bag before opening the top.

Is that accurate or am I still missing something?

Pretty much accurate, Dan.

When the lid is closed, the weight of the lid plus anything else on top is supported by the entire rim of the TourPak that it is resting on. When its open, all that weight is supported ONLY by the hinges.

Dont open the top of the tourpac with the rack loaded. It will bust off, ask me how I found this out... A few pounds is okay, but nothing with any weight to it.

See, and here is what I was thinking about. There is weather stripping that could compress with a load on it so I don't think the top is completely supported by the rim. I was thinking maybe it could compress and take out the hinges, too.

I'm certainly not above learning a lesson the easy way. Thanks for sharing.

Dan;

Maybe the dealer where I saw the display had the wiring wrong. It was NOT internal. Couldn't get a good look to see if internal was possible. They had it bolted down to a flat display rack.

Yea, man. I believed you. Worried me, too. I talked to the service writer about it before I left to be clear on that little detail.

I have mine at home now and the wiring is internal. I like the rack, too. It looks good. (I really did not want to put one on.)

I'll post pics in the review section....later. My wife took the digital camera with her to work today. Ya know, the one time I want the damn thing....

Don't be too hard on her, Dan. She'll make it up to you, I'm sure.
