Hi, I'm considering removing my trunk and replacing it with a rack from www.K1200LTRACK.com. Has anyone had any experience with this rack. Is it as good as the FT Worth rack? Any advice will surely be appreciated. :)

I've seen this before, Kirk, it's the same effect that having a General Motors Part for a Camaro...but adding the word "Corvette" to it, magically imbues it with a 20% bump in profit.

I just installed one on my 2009. Simple installation, and a well-engineered product. Highly recommended.

How come every add on farkle seems to start at $325?
Universal law of motorcycles is that add ons typically run in lots of $300. Even of my VTX it's been true...... But there do seem to be more BMW parts that start at double that.....

Yep, it seems at least 300 dollars is the beginning of all LT farkles. Have you also noted not to many companies make farkles for the LT. Must be a licensing thing. Maybe Ron from Kontour seats might know.

I have the Ft Worth Rack and, based on the photos, I like it better. Your preference may vary, but mine is based on:

1) My FTW had the vertical panel to better secure things; and
2) my FTW has tie down points at all four corners that work great for bungee cords or a small bungee "spider web" looking hold-down.

Other than that, the LTRACK appears to be an inspired copy of the FTW.
