Take note however that on page 5, the picture shows the cross bar installed and all four new bolts installed - this is not what you want to do if you're going to reuse the KTM luggage plate that your bike came with. If you want to use it, follow my instructions about those spools so that your bike looks like the one on Page 5 but with the short and longer spools on top of the four grab handle bolt points, then your luggage plate on top and then finally the four bolts. In the end, that tab with the hole that is welded to the crossbar will not serve any purpose - I believe it is only ever used if you are replacing the stock KTM luggage plate with the Jesse large plate. I use my stock luggage plate with the large KTM powerparts luggage plate bolted right on top.

Here is a picture of my rear luggage plate setup:
