I was looking at one I like on Amazon, but it only fits up to a 2016 model xt250. What is different about the 2016 model that it wouldn't fit my 2017 model ???

Hi Michael,

I had the Happy Trails luggage system fitted to my earlier model XT250 and I cannot see any year restrictions that apply to the current bike, so can I suggest that yo contact them for clarification?

The product can be seen at

http://www.happy-trail.com/happy-trails-tubular-tail-rack-xt250.html

Regards

A chance the information on Amazon was put up before there was a 2017 model?

The seller of the rack contacted me and said it is a hard fit to get it onto a 2017, so something slightly must have changed.


fyi: I like the happy trails rack, but it looks like it isn't level - ???

That's an IMMIX rack.... https://www.immixracing.com/08-16-yamaha-xt250-cargo-luggage-utility-rear-tail-rack-carrier/

I have vague memories of people having problems with those racks breaking in the thin section just aft of the mounting holes. Maybe they've fixed that.

I have an OEM rack for sale that came off my 2010 XT. I made custom racks, so don't need the OEM.
