I finished the OL30 install on my KTM520. It is an easy install on this bike.

I did remove the inner rear fender first as I wanted the Rack Loops to only go through one piece of plastic. If they went through both inner and outer fender, there is not quite enough threads going into the Rack loop nut. Longer bolts could be used, but the complete Rack Loop system is so nice and easy to install.

I am also really impressed with how much of a pull you can give to the Rack Loops without them moving at all!

For the lower right ladder strap, I drilled and made a hole in my exhaust guard.......filed it nice and smooth......it works slick.

I also tried an install with a US10, just to see how it worked.........the hook straps work fantastic for ease of install and removal of a second bag.

I also think that the Rack Loops should be mandatory on a new bike as they are so useful.















This hole keeps the ladder strap away from the exhaust.....











Holes from a previous bag were plugged with some bodywork plugs........







Cheers
