Another fine rack from Tom Slick

Recommended Posts

I just got my Tom Slick rack for my 400 and all I can say is :thumbsup: It installed in 5 minutes,,,sorry Tom, first time :awww: everything fit perfect and it is truely heavy duty, can pick up the rear of the bike using it. If you are considering a rack for your bike DO NOT buy one from suzuki, they charge more and they aren't near the rack. You will be :lol::devil: Everything you need to install it is included. :D Thanks Tom, you make a mighty fine rack... :lol:

I went to the local dealer here and they had the Suzuki rack for $199. I asked why so much and the parts guy told me anything from the manufacturer is more expensive because it is superior quality. I damn near fell over laughing. For that kinda dough it better come with a spare fuel tank and packs. I look further. How much for the Tom Slick one and where do you order it? :thumbsup:

1 more thing he said he can make em any way ya like, they are 13 in long and the best is 10 in wide but I saw a picture of 1 he made for delivering pizza,,1 wide mutha,,,but if you have something special in mind for a few extra $$$ he will customize for you and it is still way cheaper than suzuki. I will try to get my camera out and figure out how to load up a picture :thumbsup: not sure what shipping to canada is but it weighs a little less than 6 lbs

Does Tom Slick make racks for 400e's or just 400s's? BTW, I Googled the heck out of Tom Slick (and TomSlick) and couldn't find anything. Got a link? Larry

Tom and I exchanged an email about the 'E' bikes. Based on the pictures he sent me, I do not believe the rack will fit an 'E' because he bolts it up to the 'S' subframe right behind the exhaust mount. The 'E' bike doesn't have anything there since our subframe ends at the exhaust mount.

Is there anyone in CA who can be his guinne pig? I already asked for the first one after the prototype. :thumbsup:

Do understand that this one is much wider than the standard 10 inches,,,the one i have is considerably narrower than this one but Tom can make them to order. very solid rack,,,you can jump up and down on it no problem

I would consider putting one of these things on, but I am concerned about the tool kit. What havee you guys been doing with the tool kit? That's the one real nice thing about the stock rack.

The stock tool kit is kinda worthless anyway, you get a moose tool kit and strap it on or do a front fender mount tool kit, tom told me he can make it to hold the origional kit in the same spot but he really didn't like the way it turned out or looked but it worked fine.... :thumbsup:
