Yesterday I installed a Flatland Racing Cargo Rack. One thing I like about this rack is how small and lightweight it is. The rack is constructed of durable aluminum and looks great on the rear of the bike. It will fit all 2008+ Yamaha WR250R's and WR250X's.
Installation was pretty simple. All mounting hardware is included, as are thorough instructions. First you remove the seat and rear fender. On the bottom of the fender, Yamaha has marked 4 locations to drill holes that will line up with the 4 mounting holes in the rear subframe that hold the tail light/turn signal assembly to the bike. You drill 4 holes in the fender at those locations, then put the fender back on the bike. Next you put the 4 aluminum spacers through the fender holes, place the rack on top, and insert the screws through the rack, spacers, and tail light/turn signal assembly, using locking nuts on the bottom to secure everything.
The rack itself sits about a 1/2" above the fender on top of 4 spacers that go through the rear fender and attach to the bike's rear subframe. Since the rack is attached to the subframe, it is very sturdy. There are 6 large holes in the rack and one slotted hole at the very rear. This gives you several ways to securely attach a tailbag or toolbag. Overall I really like the rack for it's inexpensive and simple design. If you aren't ready to spend $140 on the Pro Moto Billet Rack, this one from Flatland Racing is a great alternative!
