I have a question for anybody with cross-bars: Can you position them anywhere along the roof rails, or do they have to line up with the little notch, like it shows in the instruction sheet? If I can't position them where I want (coupled with the fact that they are not to be used with cargo boxes) I guess I'll go the Yakima Double-Cross route.
No indication of any changes to them. The price actually went up at the start of the month but we have enough in stock that we bought at the old price so we didn't have to raise the price right away.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Why is the price increasing> Did they do anything to improve them?</font>
Honda changed the crossbars slightly several months ago. They went to wider ones witht he new part# on them. I was surprised at the time that the price stayed the same, but wasn't expecting the increase they finally went with.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2"> Surely can't be the same part.
I also noticed that my invoice has a statement that says 666363 is replacing the part number (604276)for the bars</font>
I use Thule cross bars on my EX. Specifically, the 415 foot pack and the 50" load bars.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by schnauzer:
After reading the posts regarding the Honda cross bars not being safe or recommended to be used with cargo boxes (per Honda?) I would like to know who has purchased cross bars for their 2002 EX...Yakima (what model) or Thule (what model) Why did you choose one over the other?
Thanks from a waiting newbie whose gathering the necessary info before diving into the pond.
