Eek adventure rack

Can anyone tell me how to mount the GSA rear rack on a GS? I thought it would bolt right up but it doesn't seem too. Granted I've only looked at it quickly.

Thanks!

Try the shinko trailmaster 700 series. CHEAP! I have a 1000 miles on a F650 Dakar and couldn't be happier for what I spent. Not a pavement tire but a very good gravel road tire for $110 for both.
