Here's a link to my website: http://www.moto-racks.com/







DRZ 400 S/SM Rear Luggage Rack - Made in the
USA
================================================== =======================

This is a strong, lightweight rack with a large platform to mount a RotopaX fuel or water pack, tail bag, dry bag, multiple bags, etc. New design allows any type of side racks to be used.


* Guaranteed to fit your DR-Z400 S or SM

* Easy bolt on installation with no drilling or hassles.

* Guaranteed against breakage

* Large 14.25" X 14.25" platform

* Light weight


* Large bungee loops allow pass through of various sizes of Fastex type buckles and keep straps captive.

* Steel Tube Construction

* Satin Black Powder Coat Finish

* Sits flush with top of seat so the rack won't hit you in the lower back if you slide off the back

* Makes a good handle for pulling the bike out of the mud.

* All hardware is included.



P
rice is:


$114.00 plus shipping to:


USA = $14.00
Canada = $38.00
United Kingdom = $58.00
Australia = $58.00

Somewhere else? PM me and I'll provide a shipping quote.








All racks have a mounting plate for the RotopaX Pack Mount.



The flat bar brackets mount to the rear of the sub-frame tabs. This leaves the tab clear for the mounting of all types of side racks.



Nuts are welded to the underside of the mounting plate. This allows quick mount/dismount of the RotopaX Pack Mount.



Shown with the RotopaX 1 gal. fuel pack attached. The new RotopaX 1.75 gallon fuel pack will fit on this rack too.











DRZ 400 S/SM Side Racks

Side racks are designed to hold the Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddlebags and the bungee loops will accept their metal attachment clips. They'll also accept any other throw over type saddle bags. The extremely light, flexible and well rounded Givi E21N (21 liters) side cases can be mounted using our optional welded on pre-drilled tabs.

Easy bolt on installation with all hardware included.

Works with or without the top rack.


Price: $189.00 plus 18.00 shipping

The pre-drilled Givi mounting tabs are an additional $25.00. Just bolt on the Givi hardware and you're ready to go. (Givi hardware not included.)


Picture shows optional mounting tabs welded on for attachment of Givi hardware.

nice.
you should make one for the dr650 as you'll sell a ton of those for that price.
maybe go a little wider for the 650. everyone sorely misses the ebay bbq rack for the 650.
i'm lucky i scored one.

eakins, I'm looking for someone in the northeast with a 1996 and newer DR650 that still has the stock rear end. That means an OEM tail lamp, signal lamps, grab handles, seat, etc. I'll make them a new rack for free if they let me use their bike to mount it to. This would only take a few hours. As soon as that happens, I'll have a big BBQ type rack designed for the DR. I won't steal the original makers design, but I'll come up with a good one of my own.

Protoype rack with the mounting plate for RotopaX Pack Mount attachment. As you can see, two bolts go down through the Pack Mount and nuts are welded onto the back side of the plate. It also has rings for bungie attachment. I'll test this over the next few days and if all is well, then I'll make some round corner racks with these features. Suggestions are welcome. Tell me what you want!

EDIT: see page 1 for newest design.

suggestion

Tom, I really like the rack. However; I do have another suggestion based upon my experience with a bungie net on top of my tank bag on my CBR 600. I'm wondering, in rough terrain, if four bungie hooks is enough. On my CBR, when I ride hard in the twisties, aggressively accelerating, decelerating, and leaning from side to side abruptly, the four point attachment for my bungie net-to-tank bag was not enough to keep things under the bungie net under the net and the G forces allowed whatever I had under the net move forward, backward, or to the side between, and sometimes out from under the bungie net hooks. I went to a shoe shop and had them add four more hooks to my tank bag, one between each corner. It works great and keeps everything under the bungie net in place.

How about one more hook between each corner?

Jim, good suggestion and I can see the benefit of more loops, but I'm wondering if the mid hooks could just be hooked to the rack itself?

Any thoughts about a rack for the DL1000/650? We will be at Wilgus park this weekend in case you want to take some measurements :-)

Just my luck -- argh! Ok, you can put me down for one. Oh, and why/what are you changing? It already looked sweet.

I'm thinking about round instead of square tubing. It would also have radiused corners. Everything else would be the same. The first one is yours! I'll let you know as soon as I get one built. Thanks, Tom

Howdy Tom, just tripped over this thread. That looks like a perfect fit for my needs. I'll take your second one of the new DRZ400S design, with bungie hooks and a Rotopax mount in the middle.

Thanks for doing the design work and fabbing these up for your fellow inmates!

Hi Jackpiner57,

Just found this thread. These are sweet. Put me on the list for a DR650 rack (round or square tubing would be fine). I've got the Dirtbagz as well, so hoping for the dimensions suggested by Eakins, but DB rack compatible --I understand that this may be difficult....

Hi Porrick, I haven't made any DR racks yet. I have a mock up and will make a test rack from it that will have to be tested for fit on an unmodified DR650 before I build a jig for it. I will let you know when I have that R&D done.

Thanks, Tom
