Luggage rack plate-DR650

*NOTE* I've sold the last of my racks and am not producing new ones at this time. 7/29/2013 thanks, Steve

I am now selling a luggage rack plate for Suzuki DR650 1996 and newer. This is designed to bolt on to your Suzuki factory rear rack. It is made from .160" aluminum plate and cut precisely on a water jet cutter. The rear 1.25" is angled upward about 40 degrees. Strap slots are 1.5" x 1/2", and the small slots are 3/4" x 1/2".

The relief holes are cut so they fall inbetween the crossbars on the factory Suzuki rack. It is attached to your rack by bolting through the plate and through your factory rack crossbars. The plate comes with the holes pre-drilled so it is easy to lay it on your rack and mark your holes to drill. Installation will be very easy.

Rack size is 15" width, and 12" deep from front edge to angle. Weight is 2 lbs 8 oz.

Factory rack with holes



ADV Rack plate installed



You will see that there are round headed stainless hex bolts in the previous picture. I am including them and matching stainless flange nuts with the plate. They are super awesome and high tech and look like this:



Close up with the plate



The rest of these pictures are with hex head bolts but you'll get the rounded stainless ones.






Ready to pack up and ride!





Of course you can bolt this onto any bike; I just designed it for the mount holes and relief cutouts to match up to the DR650 rack.

The plain aluminum plates will come with a brushed texture, and close up it looks like this:



Price is $55 which includes US shipping. I'll ship them anywhere in the world so just PM me for non-domestic rates.

I am powdercoating in silver metallic for another ten bucks. (pictures at end of this post)



And for those who desire a smaller rack plate, I have the one shown here. It is 11.5" wide in front, 9" wide in back, and 10.75" long. The
holes are exactly the same as the larger plate, so if your Suzuki rack is drilled for one, the other will also fit. Price is $39 delivered US plain, and $49 delivered with silver metallic powder coat. For the two rack plates together, figure $80 total within US. Again, I ship parts all over the world so wherever you are I can quote you a rate.


Comes to you like this



Bolts on like this








And now, I am selling these racks with powder coating. The color is silver metallic, and the powder coating has a clear coat baked on top of it. This will be an upcharge of $10. Here is how they look with powder coating:





So price of the rack plates again to clarify:

Large rack-- $55 delivered plain, $65 delivered with powdercoat finish

Small rack--$39 delivered plain, $49 delivered with powdercoat finish

$80 delivered for one each plain

$100 delivered for one each with powdercoat finish

Paypal and email address is valstever@gmail.com

Thanks,
Shady

Edit: I am sold out of the large rack plates. I can have more made if there's more interest. Small ones in stock in natural smooth finish. For powdercoat give me an extra week or so.

Different Sizes?

In your other thread there was a mention of a smaller one--is that in the works, too? Price?

If you make a smaller one put me on the list! I like this one but getting off in a hurry could cost you part of your manhood!

awesome looking!

i'd ship that with stainless allen-head button-nose bolts as those one you use will wear a hole in soft luggage over time but i've never had an issue with the button nose ones. the original ebay bbq rack uses button nose ones up top and i'm on 5 yrs of luggage with it.

that large one looks like it would match up nicely with Wolfman dry expedition duffles.

these are THE straps to use with that

i've used alot and they are the best i've ever used.

The regular bolts I used in the picture were just what I had in the toolbox. I'm shipping the rack without bolts due to what I'm putting in it for profit (as in little )

check out the wr250r thread. your price is great aqnd that small rack would be ideal for that bike. you would just need to drill 4 mount holes in different spot and provide alum. spacer riser.
this thread shows you how it's mounted:
http://wr250rforum.forumotion.com/t2...d-with-options
looks to be a very easy mod to use on that bike and you'd sell alot with your pricing.

i'd atleast offer a stainless bolt package for a few bucks more!!!
remember alot of guys don't have access to the correct bolts or know where to find them. complete packages sell better. our full packages outsell all other variations of orders. your prices are way low. charge more and you'll still sell them...for sure for the wr250r crowd as you would be providing a complete system and everything else on the market is above $100 anyway.

Thanks for the bump and the advice. At the moment I am sending out my first batch of plates which were cut yesterday morning. I put minimal profit in these just to keep the price down test the waters, and if it works out I very well may expand with other models and bolt kits. Looking forward to some feedback from those who I'm sending these plates to.

Steve,
The plates arrived today and they're going to work out great. I didn't originally plan to but I like the small so much that I'm leaving it on all the time, so much easier to strap stuff down vs just the rack. The large is sized perfectly to stop my tent and duffle from flopping around. For the added durability, 10 bucks to powder coat was a no brainer.

Thanks for making these. They add a lot of utility that was missing with the stock rack and at this price they are a hell of a deal.

Just got your small rack in the mail today! Looks great, perfect size for using in combination with a Giant Loop Coyote saddlebag. Can't wait to get it bolted on the bike... I'm thinking of adding some sort of vertical mount to add a Kolpin fuel cell as well.

Thanks again...good doing business with you.
