purdy bike by the way. now you need a night rider red light in front. lol
Which rack? The aluminum colored one is a universal Touratech rack. I marked it out and drilled through to mount it to the KTM rear rack (horseshoe rack). The side racks are the KTM factory luggage racks.

Thanks for the feedback on the bike.

I guess either one, cause the bikes I have seen dont have either.
so if I take the plasics off to make holes I assume its easy to get a good mark.

still on the fence between the 690 and X, which I will need to do on either bike for what I want to do.

thanks

Which Wolfman bag do you have on there and are you satisfied with how it attaches?

Thanks,

That's the Enduro tankbag. Attaches great in the back through an intersection in the frame trellis. The front must be routed carefully so as not to interfere w/ the steering stops.

I picked up this 690 Enduro a week ago, but being used to cavernous Jesse luggage on the GSA the first order of business was to make some storage space. I've had this Givi Micro2 sitting in my garage for about 5 years, so it was the candidate. It is just big enough to hold my helmet and a few odds and ends. When I do any longer distance stuff, I'll take the GSA so this should be all the luggage space I'll need for a while on this bike.

With less than $10 in materials, I built this little rack yesterday.

Very nice design, Mac. Wish I had done something like that rather than use the hardparts mount.

Grab handle mount capacity??

I am designing a rack similar to the zip ty rack shown in the last post.How much weight can those four bolts handle?I was planning on using a Kolpin mount on the back of the rack as a stop for my gear.The kolpin alone weighs in at about 12 lbs.Fully loaded I will be in the 25-30 lb range.Is that too much weight/leverage on those bolts??I really don"t want to pull out the brass fittings in the tank or crack the tank.Any input is good.Thanks in advance.

Paul has promised delivery for end feb now...I think he's being obesssively careful about the tank..we are fairly confident that we will have something on that date. He had a 690 from the shop on site to help doing the final tweaks to the production rig..

A tail rack weighing that much might be of issue. I think it would be important to have the pannier racks to go with it...or at least some supports that run down to the footpegs. It would help take some of the pressure off of the little inserts in the tank, I would think. Hard to know without actually stressing them to failure or getting a detailed drawing from KTM regarding the inserts and how they are mounted in the plastic...then guessing from there.
