Today I picked up the SW-Motech qucik disconnect rack from Twisted Throttle.

I have the luxury of living about 45 minutes from them and my bank wants to speak to me about that.

So the idea is to install the rack and transfer the Pelican Storm cases from the KLR to the KTM. Tonight I set off to install the racks.

First the directions...

Because I not mount the original topcase I use the spacer instead the mouldings.

I bench assemble the pieces with my bad grammar english to english dictionary close by

Next, fit and adjust the pieces on the bike before locktiting something into mistake...

Locktite and torque the rack fasteners once adjusted...

With the rear rack stiffener the stock plate mount reflectors interfere with the quick release mounting screws so some adjustments need to be made...

Time to use the cordless drill...

New plate location and rack is mounted.

The SW-Moteck rack mount does raise the rear topcase rack about 3/4".

That is it for tonight... I drink the beer instead the mounting cases...
