I bought a cheap off brand, and had a local guy fabricate supports on the inside of the framework (almost invisible) and now you can stand on mine

I have the cobra rack and it said 5lb limit. I think the limit is for the lid on the trunk more than the rack, but I've had 20lbs or so on mine with no problems.

If you are talking about the rack for the Nomad I have had 20 pounds on it several times no problem, but if I had it to do again I would buy the cobra rack as it looks to be an inch or so lower than the Kawasaki oem rack which should make it easier to secure a taller bag to the back rest. I am sure someone will chime in with more info

I have the cobra on my nomad backrest. I use a T-bag type bag and because it is strapped to the backrest, not all the weight is on the rack.
