Review of the Yakima ForkLift Roof Mounted Bike Rack on a 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon


Today on our 2006 Subaru Outback wagon, we'll be test fitting the Yakima forklift roof mounted bike rack, part number Y02098. With a factory roof rack system on our vehicle, we'll begin our test fit by placing our Yakima forklift directly onto our cross bars. Here at the front we'll remove the T handle to bring our front clamp around our front bar. We'll place the T bolt through the appropriate slot, and tine it in place using the T handle on top. Now we need to remove our skewer. Once we have that removed, we can move the slotted bracket around our T handle and reinstall our skewer, making sure it goes through our bracket. We'll go ahead and leave our skewer loose for when we're ready to load our bike. Here at the rear we'll bring our rear clamp around our rear bar, place the T bolt through the appropriate slight, and tighten it using the handle on top. Now we'll undo the rear wheel strap, grab our bike, and place it onto our bike rack. We'll drop the front forks down onto our skewer, and we'll secure the bike first by tightening our skewer.

We'll move to the rear, and tighten with the wheel strap. With our bike all loaded up, we're ready to go. That completes today's test fit of the Yakima forklift roof mounted bike rack, part number Y02098, on our 2006 Subaru Outback wagon. .
