Isotta Rack in Aluminum

Hey everyone,

I decided to buy an Isotta rack for my top case and I checked out eBay to see what the prices there were like and I came across a seller with Isotta racks in aluminum instead of plastic. Unfortunately, it's only the top case rack, they don't have them in aluminum for the paniers and it's also only in flat back and only for the GTL. Anyways, it's identical to the plastic rack otherwise. Install was easy as we all know. Eventually, when I paint the brak light trim in flat back, it will look better.

$149.99 plus $13.99 shipping. They also have a website, I have to look for it.

I bought it when eBay was running some sale where everything was like 15% off so I got it for $141 shipped.

Also, I know it says it's for the GT and shows a picture of a GT top case, but the Isotta part numbers that have an "11" in it are for the GTL, ie "PP11AL". I contacted the seller and he confirmed this.

IMHO looks much better than the plastic version. Any idea how much weight you can put on it?

Thanks.

I carry a set of small ROK straps and will strap an extra coat or something light that I might pick up on a trip. I've also strapped my Kermit chair on it as it's too long to go in any of the hard bags. Most of the time nothing is on the rack.


As far as the weight limit that would be dictated by the limit for the trunk itself.

Oh... I see. I have a chrome one on mine. Looks really different though. Thought there was different modules you could connect to it.

Thanks for the info... thought I was missing something I needed.
