I installed an aftermarket rack on my 2019 LX it fit fine it won’t match the oem roof rack since it mounts different than the stock setup. However, the one I have linked below is safe and sturdy and looks 9/10 the same as the stock setup.

Have you successfully used your rack for anything yet? I have a 2017 LX and want to be able to carry a kayak or two. We haven’t purchased them yet but we’re looking at the smaller and lighter kayaks, 30-40lbs. I imagine there would be a lot more drag on those than skis. I’m also looking at the Thule brand racks as al alternative, but I really wanted to have a more permanent solution.
Thanks!

A couple of months ago I install on my 2016 HRV the same rails that HondadudeHRV posted (#282). The rails and crossbars did not come with instuctions and I had to rely on a blog post to figure out how to install them. I was NOT able to install the crossbars that came with the rails because I could not get the bolts into the holes while the rails are mounted. I believe someone posted that you should install the crossbars on the rails before installing the rails on the car. I don't know how that would work maybe the original posted can enlighten us. I purchased a different set of crossbars that clamp on to the rails instead of bolting into the pre-made holes. I have since used the roof rack system to carry my kayak with no troubles.

I have a question, I ordered he same kit but got no instructions, can you send me a photo of your instructions? also, do you have a 2017 model and could it make a difference?
