We do have roof rack options for your leased 2018 Honda Pilot LX all-wheel-drive that has a naked roof with no fixtures. You can see all racks on the linked page and these include Yakima products. However the track-based roof racks like the item you referenced # Y01127 require drilling and permanent installation so they are not the best choice for a leased vehicle.

The lowest-cost option that you can easily remove when it is time to return the leased Pilot is the Yakima CoreBar system made of parts # Y00422, # Y00146 and # Y06152. This roof rack gives you a 165-lb weight capacity for your kayaks or canoe and a wide 32-inch bar spread for stability. Please see the linked video for more on this rack.

For a low-cost J-style kayak carrier I suggest the Swagman Contour # S65148 or the Rola J-Rac # 59912, but if you refer a saddle-style carrier we also offer the Swagman Exo # S65145 which can also be used with a canoe. If you prefer a gunwale-style canoe carrier we have the Yakima KeelOver # Y04069 which fits all roof rack bar shapes and sizes up to 3-1/2-inches wide and 3-1/2-inches tall.

You can refer to the linked article on watersports carriers for help selecting the best match for your boats.
