Hey Everyone,

Looking to get a custom crossbar pad but unsure of the length. Could use some help. I put the bike away for the next week or so, unfortunately cant measure it.

What size should I be getting?

Any Recommendations for vendors to order custom design?

Mine is angle cut on the ends and it measures 12" on the long side from tip to tip and 9 1/2" on the short angle. It also snaps around the foam pad. It was on one of my enduros and I moved it to the SCR. It is old and has that vintage look.

Nice, hey are you gonna paint your rack or leave it chrome?

Gloss black to match the frame would look great.
I am going sandblast the original chrome tubes and paint it with VHT cast aluminum engine enamel. The stuff is awesome and matches the paint that Yamaha uses for that silver grey color quite well. If it doesn't look right to me I will simply blast it again and go with black. The rack is on my welders bench a work. Hopefully he works his magic soon, although I really don't need it for a couple months yet.

If its the same sillver as the fenders on the red bikes it should look great.
