Generic steel luggage rack review
I purchased this luggage rack from Neihaus Cycle Sales in the U.S, part number CBR250R-RACK
It's a cheap but sturdy luggage rack. Build quality is solid but finish is poor. Welds are strong but not neat. Little effort made to de-burr or smooth surfaces. Paint is thin and my unit arrived with some light scratches and worn paint. Didn't bother me; I hit it with some rattle-can epoxy enamel, baked it on at low temp in the kitchen oven and installed it. After all...it's just a luggage rack.
The bolt hole alignment was slightly off but with some wiggling and coaxing, I got the bolts started. The pillion is a bit harder to close; requires a pretty firm push now.
When not in use as a luggage rack, I find it perfect as a handle for handling the bike and putting it up/down on a rear stand.
All in all, a strong, solid, and cost-effective luggage rack for the CBR250R.
