01. The low and sleek H-D Razor-Pak adds a custom look.
Over the last few issues we’ve been modifying our ’11 Road Glide Ultra (FLTRU) to meet the needs of a long-distance tourer and the daily urban commute. We added a detachable rack to the stock King Tour-Pak that allows the Pak to be easily removed. This changes not only the look but also how it handles without the weight of the Tour-Pak, its speakers, and lights. Combined with quick-removable fairing lowers and a low-profile seat, the RG Ultra can go from cross-country machine to a stripped-down Road Glide in minutes.
We like the storage of the stock Tour-Pak but it’s often too big for our daily commute. While Harley has had its chopped Tour-Pak for a few years the latest addition to the lineup is the Razor-Pak. It’s shorter than the other Tour-Paks but retains the same length and width. For comparison’s sake, the King Tour-Pak measures 11 inches tall, the Chopped Tour-Pak at 8 inches, and the Razor comes in at 5½ inches tall (3,850, 2,800, and 1,900 cubic inches of interior storage respectively).

We ordered a color-matching Razor-Pak (79175-10BHT, Brilliant Silver, $749.95) as well as the Razor-Pak Backrest Pad, Smooth (79192-10, $129.95) that is sold separately. The lock and keys (53194-07, keyed-to-match the ignition) are also needed to complete the install. The Razor-Pak attaches to the Detachable Two-Up Tour-Pak Mounting Rack (53276-09A, $179.95), which is quick-detach through the previously installed 4-Point Docking Hardware Kit.
Some drilling and general handtools are required for assembly. Follow along as we take you through the installation. B
