I have a Suzuki rack on my '97 DR650.
It was an accessory from Suzuki.
I don't know if they still have it.
I have seen some of the racks from Turbo City, they look good but I won't change unless I really feel the need.

Turbo City Borrego rack add-on

This is the second one of these I've made. My wife's XT-250 was first, added to her Borrego Rack for our recent trip to Death Valley. Crudely manufactured from T601 Aluminum angle stock, it attaches to the Borrego with rubber-coated metal strap clamps from the electrical section, it's hell-for-stout, and REMOVEABLE from the Borrego without leaving any hickies.

I already have a RotoPax 1 gal set-up mounted to the front of the Borrego, and can add a second 1 gal (which I did for DV) using their extension piece.
I keep a vintage one-off Marsee bag (I used to work there...) mounted to the Borrego at all times, so now I have added about 80 square inches of additional cargo "shelf" with 10 tie down points drilled into it for bungees, etc.

Worked so well I refined the design a bit, and here it is:

After powder-coat, before fitting diamond-plate "floor".
Raw stock I used sitting next to...for comparison.


Final fitting before powdercoat


Finished, with my RotoPax set-up, and Marsee bag.

Fits my needs to a "T".



My first one mounted to the Missus' XT 250 in DV. Wd did nearly 900 miles with that little bike and rack loaded down with no issues.

SW-Motech Rear Rack

Here's the SW-Motech rear rack. All black. Small. Sleek. Heavy duty construction. Many tie down options. Can get an optional top case plate that will attach to it for easy top case removal.

even though he did not say, shadyrascal is selling these for use w/ oem rear rack for those that need a strong and large rear rack. he really has a nice great simple & effective design that is sold at a very reasonable price. i have one of the unavailable ebay bbq racks but if i needed a dr rack i would get his.
that botton one is perfect for touring as it's wide w/ a rear lip support for a dry duffel bag. after tour you can then unbolt it and use the oem rear rack for daily riding.

I went with the Wolfman side racks, Expedition saddle bags, and a Pat Walsh Designs tail rack. A few pics of the install...

Remove stock grab handles or factory rack


The stock indicators install right onto the PWD tail rack (slightly higher location, as well) and the tail rack is mounted inside the Wolfman side racks, I added the washer between them to help prevent the pieces from scrubbing the powder coat off of one another


All bolted up and ready to go




I like the flat plate-style racks over bent-tube and bar racks for the rear. It seems much easier to drill and bolt stuff to when needed. With mine, I have a spare Givi mounting plate for a top box that I utilize for commuter-duty, and for longer hauls or off-the-beaten-track excursions I bent a piece of scrap alum into an L-bracket so that I can mount my Kolpin 1.5gal fuel can vertically and still have space on the tail rack for a duffel.

I went on a 5-day trip using this inexpensive setup. I think I paid $5 for the scrap of aluminum, and maybe $3 in stainless nuts and bolts.


Mark and drill 3 holes in the OEM luggage rack



Mount a heavy piece of aluminum using stainless steel bolts, flat washer, lock washers, and nylon lock nuts.




This is a 45L semi-waterproof duffle, and the bottom has a semi-rigid foam liner.



attached with a few strong bungee cords

Mine

Just finished up this set of side racks and rear rack for my DR650. I think it turned out pretty awesome. The side racks are sized appropriately for my saddle bags even though they may seem a bit small. Hopefully it'll give some of the other garage fabricators a little inspiration to make your own.
