Well i wanted to keep the bike std so if i remove the rack I'm not left with gaps in the body work.
So took the plunge and have gone with the Hepco & becker rack.

Many thanks, Mark.

Thanks for that, I did wonder about the the body work on the fazer8.
Kinda hoped the cutting to make the rack fit might have been limited to the FZ8 as I dont think they have grab handles.
Could be wrong about that though. Cheers.

Hi all. Just after a little feedback from people who have fitted a top box rack to their fazer8.

Which rack is the most popular?

Does the rear body work need modifying with the official yamaha rack?

Have looked at the Hepco and Becker rack, like this one as it looks like it bolts straight into the grab handle space.
However it does look a bit flimsy ie might bounce a bit with 6 or 7 kilos on it. Has anyone fitted it to their bike?

Looked at the Givi rack, not sure about the height the plate sits at or the fact the install pdf says you have to drill
some part of the sub frame, is this right?

SW Motech alu rack.

Was really after a rack that can be quite easily removed after a trip and the grab handles replaced so as to
return the bike to it's original clean look.

Looking forward to your replies.

Hi Black8.

When you had your seats recovered did you get any gel inserts put in, and who did them for you?

I was also wondering how you find the 8 compared to the fz thou's you've had?

And finally, hi to everyone.

Das.
