My dealer wants $110 to install my Ventura rack (on order) for my Scrambler - it can't be that hard, can it? How long did it take you, and what tools did you need.
My guess it's a min of 1 hour labour @ $100 per hour plus GST, looks like an easy job, I can change the mufflers in 10 minutes....the rack should be real easy.Many thanks for that info -- you just saved me $110 -- I do feel a little disappointed that the Dealer tried to extract that much from me...
Davo, I knew there were benefits living in Sydney
$300 is not too bad, where from ?Terry - high touring rack plus grab rail cost about $300 in total. The rack is outstanding quality - I'd recommend it.
BTW - I've heard you've had some hot weather over there, too. It's 36 degrees celcius here at the moment (11.30pm!)
Terry,Been thinking about a rack, what does it cost ?
Thanks for that looks like the goTerry,
The Ventura is very well made. A quality kiwi product :thumbsup:
I got my setup with the sports rack, sport bag, Touring rack and the Aero Spada bag for $400 not fitted,
The trick is to get them to order the sport rack as a spare part not a new item. When bought as a new item Ventura make you pay for a second set of L brackets.
All the best,
I worked out last night the best bet would be a touring kit & the grab rail....just as you are suggesting, thanks for that.If you're going to get the grabrail, which presumably you would have on most of the time (except when you need to carry stuff) then there's no point in getting the sports rack. I went the other way, and normally leave the sports rack on and only change it if I need to fit one of the bigger bags. I originally had a small bag strapped onto the small rack most of the time, but it fell apart (cheap no-brand crap!). Now I've got panniers on I don't actually need the rack most of the time.
