    Not a bad price for the used rack with scratches. Still thinking about it though, I can always place my bag on the ppad since my wife rides her own. Still, it’s on my watch list and may pull the plug this week.

    Haven't seen it, but I ended up repainting my whole fender from doing that.. if u had a line-up seat it would be ideal, but I wouldn' do it with a p pad..

    All that damage from a Ppad? In that case, I’m going to apply 3m clear like Ker did.

    The p pad even with brand new suction cups will leave a faint Mark, this was caused by highway grime getting caught under the suction cups while raining.. but as far as that 3m clear strip, had that too and it turned yellow after about 6 months and had to repaint the fender yet again.. but I do a ton of riding so Idk what it situation is broham, but just a heads up on that as well.. and u gotta remember, Ker may put 50 miles on his dog a year if he is lucky.. so that garage art ain't Gunna wear, his California Duster wears faster then anything on that bike.. ;)

    It's fine.. Everytime you put the ppad on just clean the cups.

    I don't know where kel did that thinking he was in a mess. I've ridden in rain and halfway across the country and they do leave light scratches sometimes but it buffs out. I also recommend before sticking the pad on wax the fender for protection.

    The 3m caused an issue with the paint? Ker didn’t mention that, lol. I don’t ride with a passenger often so Ppad is an occasional thing, I will however wait on the luggage rack like you suggested. Don’t ride as much but planning on changing that since I went from a rigid to a softail.

    It's not an issue if ur bike spends its life in a garage.. my bike is ridden all the time and unfortunately sits outside for about 10+ hours a day when im at work.. which caused an issue... again, not reading.. I would say ya dont listen... lol

    The 2up seat don' seem to leave much of a mark as the p pad will.. but again, my bike sits for 10 to 12 hours a day in the sun when I ride to work..

    I've had the 2 up seat on mine for 7 years now without 3M on the fender and its not scratched, And I believe with almost 20K on the bike that its more mileage than you have on yours so I don't think it sat in the garage all the time.

    No I read it, and like I said it did not leave any marks on the fender, even riding with the pillion on it for 3 years and we have been caught I the rain. I still have OEM cups, clean cups, clean fender is key. 50 miles a year is also inaccurate. Even to this day if I put the pillion pad on and sit on it to set the cups, I can't pull or slide the pad off without getting a finger nail under the cup to release it.

    "The p pad even with brand new suction cups will leave a faint Mark, this was caused by highway grime getting caught under the suction cups while raining.. but as far as that 3m clear strip, had that too and it turned yellow after about 6 months and had to repaint the fender yet again.. but I do a ton of riding so Idk what it situation is broham, but just a heads up on that as well.. and u gotta remember, Ker may put 50 miles on his dog a year if he is lucky.. so that garage art ain't Gunna wear, his California Duster wears faster then anything on that bike.. ;)"
