WingRider trunk support system

Postby crock4 » Wed Jun 20, 2012 4:11 pm



I just installed a trunk support system from WingRider on my 01. I saw their ad in Wingworld, and thought I would give it a try. I thought about the rubber bumpers, but when I saw this it seemed like a solution not just a fix. I now have no more flex in the lid or rattle when riding. Hopefully one more problem solved. Has anyone else tried this product? If so how has it held up, and what do you think about it?
If you would like to take a look at it their website is www.WingRiderProducts.com.

I went to the owners house and he installed it for me for free, that was 3 years ago, and it has worked brilliantly.. highly recomended.

I just ordered a kit. $69.45 including shipping to Canada using USPS (Post Office Mail). Any Canadians considering this kit - the price for shipping is very fair.

why not put coverings for trunks?

I don't understand your question, these supports help if you have a rack on the top of your top box lid as it supports some of the weight when you load up the rack.. A cover would make the top box look pretty, but would not do anything to help support extra weight.

I have carpet in the walls of trunks, and it suppresses the noise

Thanks, now I understand.. Yes covering/carpet would reduce the noise, but the supports help with both noise (by reducing the movement between the lid and the main case), and also give added support if you have a rack added.. If you don't use a rack, then carpet would be a cheaper option, but these supports work very well, which is what the original poster asked about..

Some do it one way, and others do it another. Your way works for you, but I don't like the idea of glueing a bunch of carpet to the inside walls and lid of the trunk. I like the support idea better for myself.

carpet is stiff and not glued, it can be removed and cleaned!

I also prefer the support method. I works good for me. It was not my intention though to present this as being better or worse than any other solution to a common problem. I only wondered if others had tried it, and how they liked it. Thank you all for the input. :?

I've had mine for about three years, a great product.
