Hepco & Becker mini rack load limits
on: November 23, 2020, 03:06:26 PM
I recently installed a hepco & becker rear mini rack on my f900xr with the intent on putting a top box on it.  I found out that the rack has a load limit of 5kgs after installation (these are not shown in their website by the way). The top box already weighs 6.5 kgs empty so total weight could reach 12 kgs easily.  The rig itself looks sturdy enough but am concerned either it will give way or for the bike to be “rear” heavy.

Anyone else has the had the same situation? How is it so far?

I can't speak to that specific setup, but don't worry about the bike feeling heavy in back, I routinely carry around 35-40 lbs (16kg-18kg) on mine.
