Installation



Read ALL the installation instructions BEFORE beginning! If you have any questions about your installation contact us at [email protected]


Your kit will include a set of printed instructions. When you have your BULLRACKS up on the wall email us at [email protected] with some pictures of your installation and we will post them on our website!


Your BULLRACK kit comes complete with all the hardware that is normally required to mount the rack(s) in your garage. If you have an unusual situation, you may have to obtain the screws or fasteners you need at your local hardware store.

Each package comes with 2 BULLRACK Wall Racks, or a single top case mount plus screws that are 2 1/2” x #10 for wood mounting. 

Wood Stud Installation

You can install the BULLRACKS anywhere on the stud vertically, so determine where the best location will be for security and ease of access. Typical installations are side by side or over/under. Certain BULLRACK kits (like the BMW K1600GT/L or 1200RT-LC and Yamaha FJR) contain a “left” and a “right” unit. Most garages are constructed with 2 x 4 studs and covered with sheetrock. A 2 x 4 is actually only 1 1/2” wide on the side we are screwing into so your target behind the sheet rock is fairly narrow. It is very important that your BULLRACK is attached into the center of the wood stud and not just screwed into the sheetrock.


For the safety of you and your home, we strongly recommend that you use a studfinder that has the ability to detect voltage.  This ensures that you won’t screw into a wire while attaching the BULLRACK.  Your Big Box stores and Amazon sell various types of them.  If you are unsure of your ability to safely install your BULLRACK please call a qualified professional!


You can use a Phillips screwdriver, but your life will be much easier if you have an electric drill/screwdriver. Make sure that the plastic washer in the kit is installed on the 2 1/2” x #10 screw before inserting the screw into the BULLRACK – this will lessen the chance that the paint will be damaged if you over-tighten the screw.  TIP: rub the screw threads with a bar of soap and they will go into the wood much more easily.

Install the upper screw first but do not tighten completely. Place a carpenters level across the top of the BULLRACK and level it. Install the second screw/washer and tighten both screws snugly, verifying again that the BULLRACK is level. Test the installation for strength by pulling on the unit. This will ensure that you have not just caught the edge of the wood stud, but that you have gotten a good and solid attachment. If you are mounting pannier mounts then repeat the same installation for the second BULLRACK.

Only you can ensure that the BULLRACK is attached correctly!

Hang your panniers or top case, lock them on their BULLRACKS just as you would on your bike, and feel that sense of security and relief knowing that they are SAFE and off the floor!

Metal Installation

Almost the same installation as for wood, but use shorter self-tapping screws)perhaps about 1” long) if you are attaching into metal and be sure to get completely into the metal stud in the wall and not just the thin sheet. Be sure to use the plastic washer to protect the decal and finish. Remember: Only YOU can decide if your BULLRACK is safely attached to the wall.

Concrete Block or Poured Concrete Wall

Lowe’s and The Home Depot sell a product called a TAPCON kit that has the correct bit and masonry screws for anchoring into brick, block, or masonry.  There may be a more suitable product for your installation. Only YOU can decide if your BULLRACK is safely attached to the wall.
