TE610 Dirt Bagz are on

Super easy install uses 2 rear subframe bolts on each side(replaces the rear most one with slightly longer one) and rack utilizes passenger footpeg mounts. Bolted on and togther in 15 minutes. Nice quality I don't have my passenger pegs on and found the supplied bolt for the right side front way to long so I reused the stock bolt with the spacer and washer they supplied. Kit also comes with a new heat shield over the Exhaust

If this warm weather holds here in Jersey might be in for camping/fishing with the bike this weekend now that I can pack my Fishing Gear easy!

Joe

Heres the pic from their site.

Surprise myself with how much I can get in them.

With the side bags and an expandable top bag
I can cram in a week or 2 worth of grocerys.

nice!!

I got mine in the mail, yesterday, but have not mounted them, yet.
Has anyone mounted them without the passenger pegs?
I don't plan on remounting the passenger pegs, but I do still have them if I need to use some of the mounting hardware.
I was already thinking of cutting the passenger peg off of the helmet lock and remounting just the lock.
I will post how it goes, if somebody doesn't beat me to it.

Looks good, onebaduce. Thanks for the pic!

Here ya go Chadley, old boy

p.s. It would be nice if you guys could post a pic or two of the install, I always like looking at others' setups, never know what you might learn...
I ordered the Ranger's that should arrive tomorrow and am wondering if they will interfere with either the PMB rack or the Sweet Cheeks. I will post pics of my install asap...

You'll have everything you need to bolt up the brackets without the foot pegs. Just use a combination of the supplied hardware with the hardware you removed when you took off the passenger pegs. The U piece on the right subframe is used to provide the mounting point there. Next post will include some pic of the mounted brackets.

Nice bike, thanks for the pics of the bags.
Freshly washed, new rubber, and only 1 month old with less than 1500 miles. Scratches, gouges, rips, tears and broken pieces coming soon!

Brackets are not symetrical in that they allow for a left side exaust and are wider that side...looking at them the ride side mounts higher and is also bent accordingly.

Is not symmetrical. Doubt it would work on a 510 because of this. Even if the exhaust was not an issue, I'm wondering if you have the same subframe underneath the fender anyway?

Everyone should be advised that this setup is meant to be light and gives up sturdiness in that pursuit. Frame members are pretty easy to bend. Hopefully they bend back easily also without breaking welds etc. Time will tell...

The bags themselves are very well made using ballistic nylon. Big zips, great stitching. Use garbage bags inside to waterproof contents. IMO sewn bags like this have much better abrasion resistance than welded "dry" type bags. That's why I prefer using them with garbage bags for waterproofness.

I have seen another post on Dirt Bagz and KTMs where the guy replaces the metal snap clip with a nylon quick release cuz he doesn't want to scratch the brackets. My former life as a designer of backpack gear tells me this is a BAD move as I've seen many failures of small SR buckles and having this stuff tangle up with a moving wheel would be bad and expensive.

Yes, Rangers if that was the larger size. Will get the brackets and use them on my V-Strom as well.

I think the secret to how well they hang will be in getting the top straps tight enough so they are secure. When really tight they are somewhat deformed as they conform to the underlying brackets, seat, exhaust, etc. A bracket that used two horizontal bars, one near the top of the bag, and one near the bottom would eliminate this twisting deformity, but would add unnecessary weight IMO.
