Rear luggage rack
« on: June 16, 2014, 12:43:26 PM »
Does anyone have the optional rear luggage rack on their Mio 50?  I really want one, but have heard that it makes fuel filling difficult because of the filler cap placement.  Any experience?

I have put a few on -the fuel filler is very hard to reach unless using a gas can with flex neck

Ok, thanks.  I see there is a fold-up version of the rack available here:  http://www.motoaccessories.co.uk/sym-mio-50-100-chrome-luggage-rack-foldable.html, but cannot find it in the U.S.  This might work better?

I ordered the rear luggage rack from Racing Planet USA. I have to wait until it arrives.

Please let me know how it works for you - I want one, but do not want fuel filling to be a hassle.

No, Racing Planet USA said they had some trouble with getting their order through customs, I assume from Europe into the United States. I received my order last week. I have mounted my topcase, and it looks like there is room for the pump under the rack. The rack is mounted quite high up to provide clearance.

Ok, thanks for the info.  Let me know how it goes at the gas station?

Hi - curious if you have been to the gas station yet to see if the rack blocks pump access?

Just checking in to see how people fared with the luggage racks.  I'm looking at one with the seat back.
