Yesterday I installed a Pro Moto Billet "Rack It" Cargo Rack. Each of these PMB racks are CNC machined from a 1/2 inch thick plate of 6061 billet aluminum. The rack is then “hard black” anodized for durability, ease of maintenance, and protection from the elements. The rack will fit all 2008+ Yamaha WR250R's and WR250X's.
Installation was pretty simple. All stainless steel mounting hardware is included, as are instructions. The rack mounts the same way as the Flatland Racing cargo rack. You first remove the seat and rear fender to access the rear subframe. 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 (5/8") in the fender at those locations, then put the fender back on the bike. Next you put the 4 aluminum spacers through the 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. And just an FYI, I drilled slightly smaller 1/2" holes and then filed them out slightly so that the spacers fit in pretty tightly. If you drill the holes too big, the spacers could be loose and the rack might move around.
The Pro Moto Billet rack sits about a 1/2" above the fender on top of 4 aluminum spacers that go through the rear fender and attach to the rear subframe. The rack is a bit larger than the Flatland Racing rack and covers more of the rear fender. These racks are specifically made for the WR250R/WR250X and are pretty much the same shape as the rear fender, just slightly larger in size. It gives you several ways to securely attach a tailbag or toolbag. Overall I really like the rack and will probably leave this one on the bike now that I took the Flatland Racing rack off. Both racks work great, but I like the slightly larger size of the PMB rack.
