Awesome rack!

Rick,

Thanks again for the rack! It's exactly what I needed for my solo day trips so I could carry an extra 10L of fuel without putting my panniers on. The only thing I did that wasn't included was get some 3M foam/sticky tape and put it between the spacers and the hand hold. That way nothing will vibrate itself into anything else. Cheers!

Joe

Anyone know if this rack does/would interfere with caribou case mounts. If you have seen caribou cases (you can check their website), it almost looks like the cases may come up high enough where the side of the rack would hit. Any input?

Kildala rear rack for F650GS



I received my Kildala rack and installed it Friday night in three minutes time. Great fit and finish.

The rack is fantastic. Great platform for a variety of stuff. It will hold my overnight bags, camping gear, etc. just perfectly.

And it also works great for strapping down just a small toolbag, a briefcase...whatever.

Below is a pic of my bike packed up for camping with the Kildala rack.

Great work Rick. Pleasure doing business with you.

Installed my rack a couple days ago and have had a couple solid days of use out of it during my commute. Let me just say that this sucker will pay for itself time and time again. It's affordable (compared to others) and very funtional. To people wondering why other racks similar to this have longer slots for tie downs (like the pic of the one on the 1st page of this thread) vs. circle holes to hook into....the slots just leave more room for the strap/bungie to vibrate and wiggle around in. The Kildala rack is super easy to mount and is very solid. I also like that its not as overwhelming as others...in other words it gets the job done without looking like the rack is going to take over the whole bike!!! Thanks Rick, you're the man. Rick is part of a dying breed of easy and amazing people to do business with. AAAAAAAAA++++++++

rack bolts

Hi rick,

I am happy with my rack, but have a suggestion or two.

I put rubber [old bike tube] underneath the spacers so they wouldnt mark the plastic bmw silver rack.

The black bolts you suppied fit perfect, but after a month they have started to rust a bit. What are they made of?

Thanks

David

Asking $85.00us + postage.
Thanks,

I got my rack. I did not include postage. Rick gave me oop's what ever responce. His loss. The price was clear $+postage. I finally battle tested the rack on Socal's 405. Lane splitting with a duffle (idiot). Quick re-strap to longways and I was off again.

Rack performed as advertised. I sent the follow up postage. To do otherwise would have been chicken-shit.

Oh ho ho man!

Rick my man, the rear rack is great! I would have posted sooner but I'm a noob to posting pictures and can't get them to upload. I'll try to post something in the next few days to show it off.

I put the rack on in <5 minutes and have already put 75 lbs. of dog food on the rack with no problems! Hey, I just wanted an excuse to use it without putting on all of my camping gear.

It adds another dimension to the ability of these bikes and I love it. I got it just in time too! Another day or three and I would have been to used to the factory look....plus, I'd say it's about perfect size for a Hamm's Chest!

Thanks again Rick, the pleasure was all mine, I'll try and get those pics up!

Bill
