I will be using it with the Wolf side racks, but it appears the top rack can be used without pannier frames - the kit has spacers which I assume take care of that, and it mentions the possibility of needing different length bolts depending on the specific application. I will check the instructions again this evening to see what they say regarding this.
I checked, and this rack will definitely work without side racks/pannier frames, by simply using the "standard" length bolts that come with the kit. When using the top rack with the Wolf side racks, one uses slightly longer bolts provided in the kit with the side racks.
