If you need a fairing for the stock roof rack, Inno Racks has one that will fit. You will need longer fairing bolts but that’s it. This is a good alternative to the Yakima and Thule fairings that need modification to the stock rack in order to fit cleanly. It clamps right around the OEM bars and has a nice amount of adjustability. I ordered the large size and it fits perfectly on the OEM rack. The part number is INA262. I ordered it from ORSracksdirect.com. You will need to add on the ISF717 long bolt kit as well.
Installation is easy and the materials are all very high quality. I haven’t tested it with all my rack accessories yet so I can’t comment on whether it interferes with anything in particular. My roof basket and bike racks should fit fine. I am not so sure about the snowboard rack until I try it on, but it should fit. I’ll update this as soon as I find out. (It does)
Wind noise is practically nonexistent with this on. The rack used to howl and whistle at highway speeds.
OEM VW Basket
-Fits just fine
OEM Snowboard Rack
-Fits but required a little bit of work/ingenuity.
-The stock T-Bolts are too short, requires slightly longer bolts fit. My bike racks came with them so I reused them. You may have to order longer ones from Thule or find a similar replacement. Basically I placed 1/4″ washers underneath the already included plastic washers. This raises the front attachment just high enough to clear the metal plate for the fairing.
Thule 517 Peloton Bike Rack
I also just tested the VW Basket with bike rack, it barely fits, but it will work.
Here are a couple of quick pictures. Higher quality pictures are on the way.
