49 liter top case rack

Does anyone offer a small rack for the top of my 49 liter case? I want to strap my sleeping pad to it since it will not fit in the case.

Go to a Harley Dealer and get their luggage rack. They even sell the spacers to raise the rack above your padded plastic piece on top. It's a quality piece of chromed metal.

Try this part number 79148-06A or 53665-87

Try this from BMR Products.

Brett is currently working on a co-pilot shelf and passenger seat luggage rack for the GT and should have them available by summer

I took your advice and bought #87 from HD and installed same. Looks good.
