I have Dirt Bagz Ranger bags/frames on my KLR250. They have been in service for two years. I have laid it down several times with no damage. So far, I have had the good fortune to avoid any epic crashes. If I crashed hard enough, I bet they would bend or break. I suspect they would fare better than me though. I'm going to outfit my new (to me) DR with them.

New Billet Cargo Rack for Suzuki DR650! Givi & Rotopax ready

Check out link below in Vendors for availability .

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=916478

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Jared made a custom Billet Alum. plate to mount up a windsceen for my DR a while back, so when I found out he was designing a Rear Rack for the DR650SE I told him I would buy one from his first batch.

The DR650SE “Scaggs” Rear Rack really does have tons of functionality, as well as the 5 point mounting for strength.

If you need a Hard Top Case … just buy a Givi lug kit …
= = =

= = =
= = =
and pop on a Givi Monokey Top case. …
= = = = = =

= = = = = =
= = = = = =
Want to switch to a soft Tailbag, just pop off the Givi case and strap on the Tailbag … for most soft tailbags you will not need to remove the Givi lugs ….
= = =

= = = =

= = = =
A nice touch is that the slots on the rack are large enough that most 1” strap CLIPS will fit through …
= = = =

= = = =
= = = =
To mount a RotoPAX tank, just bolt the RotoPAX mount using the 6mm tapped holes …. The front givi lugs can stay attached, but the rear will have to be removed to mount up the RotoPAX tank.
= = = =

= = = = = =

Lots of options !

Yada .. Yada … Yada … no affiliation with Jared, just a happy customer

love the functionality and range of adaptability of that rack!
looks beefy strong and that 5th center bolt point is key to help off-set the weak left rear mount point.
