Hey siyeh, I haven't found anybody with a 2013 model yet, but I'll put the word out! Anyone who brings me one will get a free rack for letting me use their bike to design one!

Yup...the CRF seems HOT as far as the latest in DS riding. I've seen your DRZ and KLR racks and side racks, especially with the roto-pax mounts, and it oughta kill 3 birds with one stone on the CRF250L, which has a tiny tank....with large tanks off in the distant future in terms of availability.

Hello,

Do you have any racks for the KLX 250? Do you make side racks as well?

Thanks,
Restless

Ed, I will be designing racks for the CRF250L this winter. I think the current menu of 250's being offered today are going to prove to be very popular.

Thanks for the interest,Tom

I don't currently, but I'll be designing racks for this model too. Side racks will definitely be considered when I start the R&D.

Thanks for inquiring!

I just thought I'd post a link to my new website! It's a work in progress as I'm doing it myself with very limited skills, but it's functional enough to get the job done for now.

I'll be expanding the product line to include the DR650, KLR650 '07 and earlier, as well as the new crop of 250 dual sport bikes.

Here's the link: http://www.moto-racks.com

Feel free to sign the guest book on the "About" page.

Thanks!

Tom

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



For the DRZ 400 E - Go Here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=788735

For the KLR650 - Go Here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...2#post19832482





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





The TAT Rack

------------------

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.

* Threaded mounting plate for quick and easy mount/dismount of a RotopaX Pack Mount. 1 gal. & 1.75 gal. Gas Packs or Water Packs fit this rack.

* 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:


$129.00 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

New side racks give you some options! They are designed to hold the Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddlebags and the bungee loops will accept their metal attachment clips. They'll also accept almost any other throw over type saddle bags or other soft luggage bungeed on tightly. Or, how about attaching the extremely light, flexible and well rounded Givi E21N side cases?

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.)

New Site

New site looks great but would look even better with a Dr650 top rack side rack similar to your DRZ combo.....

Inmate AtlasEXP and I stopped over at the mighty Moto-Racks factory last weekend. Tom is working on racks for the DR650 this week. He will also be offering racks for the TW200, the '07 and earlier KLR, and some of the BMW models in the near future. The big issue for him is getting bikes to test fit racks on. If you have a model that you'd like to see a rack for, and you can get a bike to Vermont, contact him!

I would be all over dropping a Dr650 to test racks on if I was 4000 klicks closer I can wait as the product looks fantastic... makes me want to buy a DRZ. Merry Christmas to all from Canuckistan

Once Tom gets through designing his DR racks, I don't think you'll have any reason to be disappointed. He has a DR in his shop now. His work is without par. He understands how riders ride, the limitations of the material, and how a things should work as a system with the bike, the luggage and the rider in extreme conditions.

He's one of the most anal-retentive bastiges I've met as far as quality. He's a fair hot rider, also.

Merry Christmas to all, and good will to men.

Thanks KT, I appreciate the kind words! As it turned out, my friend with the DR had something come up and wasn't able to bring the bike to me yet. He WILL bring it soon and we'll get some racks made for it. As soon as I do, I'll make some and get them onto my website! I'll make a note to contact you when I do.

Thanks again, Tom

Thanks Tim, you are a great guy and I appreciate all of the support! I'll be working on racks for AtlasEXP's TW200 next week. I figure I'll sit down with a cup of coffee and stare at it for a while and see if any ideas spring up.

Could I get some Pelican or Seahorse box's to mount on your side rack mount for a 400SM? the curved body of the Givis's seem to limit their already small size, or am I mistaken?

As far as the box's go I'm thinking something simple like a few waterproof thru bolts nothing fancy like quick release.

One more thing, looking from the rear does the exhaust side stick out further than the left side?

thanks

Ron W.

Hi Ron,

I'll take some pics today and post them up for you. I'll take one from the rear too. The exhaust side does stick out slightly more than the left side.

The Givi's are 21 liters each and I'll try to get some pics of them loaded up with gear to give you an idea of how much they hold. For me, they're the only plastic cases I'd put on a dirt bike. They're light as a feather and somewhat flexible too. The rounded edges are a huge plus in my opinion. And they're fairly inexpensive too. That is just MY opinion though.

You can easily put the Pelicans or seahorses on there too. I will supply you with the simple hardware to do that at no extra charge. Nyloc nuts on the inside of the case will prevent someone from turning the bolts from the outside because they'll just spin on the inside. I can explain this further if you'd like. Just PM me with a phone number and I could call you.

Thanks for inquiring! - Tom
