Bestemusa.com and search for the Yamaha venture luggage rack. Cobra also makes on specifically for the Voyager.

I have an HD rack on mine and it fits just fine. I use a Tour Master rack bag on it when touring.

Mutazu.com also makes a knock off of the Venture rack that saves you a few bucks, and doesn't have the Yamaha star in the middle of it.

Yamaha rack recommends no more than 10 lbs on it although it looks like it could hold more.

I have the Yamaha rack on mine. Looks and works like it was made for the Voyager. As for the 10lbs weight limit, they all say that. I think the side bags have a similar weight limit. I put a 20lbs bag on my rack when on long trips, and the side bags have more than 10lbs in them ALL the time. I believe the weight limits have more to do with keeping the lawyers happy than anything else.

Yamaha Rack

I too went with the yamaha rack and went the 1.5" star washers for added support as the top is ABS and not fiberglass. Two trips - lots more than 10lbs and no problems.

Safe rides!

I am using a showchrome rack with the matching rack bag. I do not recommend it unless you put the taller passenger backrest on the bike. I carry our frogg toggs and the bike cover in the bag with some snacks and other small items in the pockets. 40,000 miles and no issues.
