Additional Board Racks for 08 X Star
 
I have an 08 X Star and frequently have more than 4 boards to deal with. Does anybody know where I could find additional board racks that fit my tower? Thanks

Check out the Z5 Cargo bimini. Kinda pricey, but looks awesome and can carry an additional 3 boards. Not the greatest pic, but you can see how stout this thing is. I take the canvas off when I trailer for any distance. I'll be back in town Wednesday if you wanted better pics.

Would love to see some more Pics of your Bimini

Yea the Z5 is awesome, not cheap but that thing is stout.

No problem. Like I said, give me till wednesday and I'll snap a few pics with some boards in the Z5, and also a few to show how it rotates to gain access to the boards up top.

How much head room do you think you lose? I have a '09 X Star and the head room is amazing. My buddy is 6'5 and walks right under it, he curses everyone else.

I noticed on your first pics you swapped out the black backgrounds on the tower for red. How do you get them off? Are they just glued down?

I'm 5'11 and I can walk straight under it. I made mine sit a little lower though to make room for the two 485's. As for the tower legs, I didn't want to bother with removing the stock inserts, way too much of a pain. I just went to a local sign shop and got a 12" wide by like 10' piece of sticker vinyl. Then I just laid it over all the black insert and cut it out with a razor. Took less than an hour for both sides and it looks good up close too! Let me know if you have any more questions.

Www.mastercraftbydesign.com has the different color inserts. They are just glued down with double sided tape.

any other options besides the Z5 Cargo rack?

$3200 quote for the Z5 from my dealer. 5-6 week lead time. Is that similar to what others are getting?

You can get surf pockets sewn into your Bimini for around $250. I frequently put wakeboards in the "surf pockets".

Bruizza, what up man? It was good meeting you at the Meet and Greet. Saw your other post on the X-30 wake, looks mean bro. You got any pics of the pockets your talking about?

Not the fit and finish of the z5 but a much lower price.

Sorry it took so long for the pics. Once again, I didn't take any with the canvas on since I don't tow with it on, but if you need them, I can get you some. Hope this helps...
