I came up with a better way to tie down your scooter. If your scooter has welded in plugs that your bar ends screw into then you can use these tie down links. If your bar ends are just held in by rubber you can't.

I'm thinking of selling them for $10 a pair. What do you think?

still need to remove those and put the bar ends back on after your done hauling the scoot. Why not just use some of these? http://www.jettin.com/ProductBarEnds.htm

I've seen those but they don't make ones that are heavy enough for my scooter.

When I installed the top box it came with ones that are 20 oz and they want $36 for the 15 oz.

The heavy chrome Jettin models work just fine. I have used them on two GTS models, a GTV and a Piaggio BV500. Three of those had top boxes and the bar ends are plenty heavy. The tie downs that you made look like they will work well. The big difference is that you have to put them on and take them off each time you use them, unlike the Jettin models that stay on the scooter all of the time. I think you did a great job with those to solve your problem. I don't like canyon dancers and if Jettin didn't make the heavy bar ends, I would follow your example. Thanks for posting this.
