Another dumb question, will the top rack mount up ok with Jesse hard luggage mounts installed. They have a bar that goes across the top and bolts onto the rear tail of the bike?

Not a dumb question, I too have the Jesse racks and want this rear rack. I'm hoping with some minor adaptation the rack will fit.

Hey superhawkrider and blender let me know more about this.

I assume the passenger handles are the stock ones?

How much height does the Jesse crossbar add exactly?

Is it the same shape/diameter/depth for the Jesse crossbar rack mounting area as the stock mounting area?

Can you post a picture of the top of the crossbar so I can see the mounting area?

It may just be a matter of sourcing some longer bolts and hopefully using the same spacers.

Let me know.

Thanks,

Dave

Dave: Below are a couple (poor) photos showing the Jesse mounting rack attachment. I measured 1" from the bottom to top where the mounting bolts are. I suspect it's just a matter of using slightly longer bolts (as you mentioned) and the rear rack will go right on top of the Jesse rack. The Jesse rack will essentially replace the spacers you use.

Blender is the rack mounting level now between the mounts?

Then there is the depth inside of the Jesse mounts to take into account too. Lastly it looks like the Jesse bolts are countersunk. Could you take out the bolts and check that out?

It seems that what would actually happen is that I would sub the taller rear spacers for the shorter front spacers and the bolts would stay the same. This would hopefully keep the rack relatively level. If the longer spacers were used the rack would not be level of course.

Is the inside diameter of the Jesse mounts roughly the same as the front mounts?

Thanks,

Dave

Dave, damn you ask a lot of questions! ;)

I'm a bit confused on this question. More explanation what you're looking for? Hazarding a guess, I'd say no, the top of the rack mounts are not a level surface. Others out there with Jesse bags please chime in.

I'll take a bolt out tonight after work and get a photo. I do believe you're correct in that the bolts are countersunk. I'm also assuming you want a measurement of a front and rear bolt?

The front & rear mounts appear to be the same diameter and height. I had measured them both at 1" height. I'll verify that tonight.

Am I on the list for the Top Rack?

Hi Dave,

I was just wondering if I am in your list for the top rack. I can also pick it up anywhere if you have them ready .

Thanks.

BTW, you are talking about the Jesse Bags maybe this video will help if you haven't check it yet.

Measurement of the rear bolt would be good.

Perfection needs a lot of answers!

Essentially I am hoping to use the same spacers front and back. So they require the same "playing field".
If you run a straight edge from the top of the front mounts to the top of the rear (Jesse) mounts is it level?

Also the small spacers fit into the passenger mounts and have a flat bottom (countersinking will upset the height a little) and the appropriate outside diameter (.600"/ just under 5/8"/ 15.23mm). By looking at it and measuring it, will the same spacers fit in the Jesse mounts?

You can always use washers to make up a little space.

Danielcc I emailed you.

To everybody on the list for all this time don't worry I am still working on contacting everyone. The whole first run is over sold and another (supersized) run is in the works.

Top Racks haven't started shipping as the hardware didn't show up despite ordering from two different vendors.

Thanks for your patience.

Dave

Monokey cases all share the same mounting points.

That's it for now...

Dave
Monokey is Monokey -- they all share the same mounting specs. So if your setup fits one Monokey case, it'll fit them all. I have an E45 and 2 E22's (or whatever model the 22 liter cruiserish side bags are called), and they have the same mounting points.

Monokeys also share the same key bodies, so if you bought cases separately, you can order a batch of matched key bodies and keys, and replace the ones in the cases so they all use the same key. Twisted Throttle sells key bodies in sets of 2, 3, 5, and maybe more.

Eagerly awaiting the official availability of the rack!

-Greg

The rear (Jesse rack) mount bolt measures 49.6mm/ 1.95" top to bottom.

Well, it looks close to level. I suspect the "couple of washers" suggestion below would work to level things out if there *are* any differences.

The "front" passenger grab rails will still use your spacers. The Jesse rack bolt mounts are slightly countersunk (poor photo below). I don't think your rear spacers will be needed. What I think might work is your spacers & bolts in the front, and your rear mounting bolts. I might add a rubber grommet/washer between the Jesse rack mount and the rear rack.

Anyhow, I'm going to take a chance on this.

Thanks for sending in the pics and measurements. I have not had the time to mount my jesse's up yet. Spent to much time riding last week. 2400 miles, 5 days, and 4 states on my Dam Tour. Started a new job today and had to get a ride in before it started. Still standing by to order the skid plate and top rack when they are ready for shipping.

Why do I have the feeling that this question is going to delay the release of this product for another month or two?

Just looking at this pic I'm wondering if my Wunderlich crash bars will be compatible with your skid plate. The Wunderlich bars have bars along each side of the bike along (just below) the exhaust and bolt to the center stand. Have you tested for compatibility with these? I'm in Edmonton but would be more than happy to take a trip down there for you to see. I just mounted the bars last night (no pics yet). I will take a couple and post them here tomorrow.

Gee, did you read the rest of the posts? It shouldn't delay anything. A couple extra longer bolts (supplied by a trip to the hardware store) and the rack will bolt up.

Shipping Top Racks...finally!

Hey inmates,

The MOD F800 GS Top Racks finally started shipping today!
I'll be contacting those that shipped with tracking numbers.

I have also sent a whole bunch of you PM's or emails. I haven't gotten to everybody yet though.

*Caution* The website says they are sold out and they are, but a lot of you are on the list. If you haven't heard from me yet and you think I missed you or you never sent an email let me know. dave@motooverland.com

Thanks and I'm lookin' forward to seeing MOD gear all over the place doin' it's thing!

Thanks for all the feedback on the Givi mounting too.

sarkmych; The Wunderlich's look like a tricky one because of those lower bars but I emailed you and we'll see if we can figure it out.

Dave
