Rotopax mounts yes please

Hi Tom,

It would certainly be great if the Rotopax mounts were added to the sideracks as well, good idea Canuman!

Don't put the price up too much though until I've bought mine

Just one other thought, given that the Australian subframe is a hybrid of the E and the ,S are there any other braces/fixings that could be added to make the mounting even stronger and to support the subframe?

Cheers,

Adrian

Hi Adrian,

Don't worry you'll be grandfathered in price wise. Let me look at my DRZ later today and I'll let you know if I can see a way to brace the subframe for heavy loads. Off the top of my head, I would think that a brace that starts at the lowest sub-frame mount and then up to the two upper tabs under the fender might do it?

Brilliant Tom.............

Tom that would be excellent A fair few blokes use the DRZ in Oz for bush trips and anything that braces the subframe and makes the racks even more bombproof would be well received.

I can't wait to see what you come up with

Cheers,

Adrian

Adrian, I was able to take a look at the sub-frame today and after determining where to connect to, it looks doable to me. I'll try to come up with a protoype soon!

Excellent news..

That's excellent news Tom, I can't wait to see what you come up with. I have a couple of thoughts though :

Given that you will be using additional mounting points, would it be possible to eliminate the seat mounting points, or are they integral to the rack mounting? Could something like the S mounting now work for the Oz E subframe? I ask as I take the seat off a fair bit and would prefer not to disturb the rack attachment each time, if that's possible. That said, if using the seat points as well makes it stronger, then I would prefer to keep them.

For this to really work for me I still need to be able to mount a Giant Loop Great Basin or Coyote in front of the side racks. Canuman reckons this is possible now, but moving the racks rearward a bit might make this easier and more roomy for the rider.

Do you want to take this to pm, or is this thread still appropriate for this?

Cheers,

Adrian

The rack system looks awesome. I just picked up an '07 E model and your racks were highly recommended. I originally thought I was going to need a whole new subframe to carry gear. I'm sorry I don't have anything to add, I just wanted to subscribe to keep track of updates and possible sales. I'll probably order mine in about a month.

PhiSig1071, Thanks for the accolades and for checking out my E thread! I look forward to helping you when you're ready.

I also offer some options for the side racks. I can weld plates in that allow the attachment of RotopaX Pack Mounts. I can also add pre-drilled tabs for attaching Givi Luggage hardware. If you need custom work done, I do that too. http://www.moto-racks.com/Products4.html

I am going to be offering packages that will include our racks with the Nelson_Rigg Adventure Dry Saddlebags (Holds 27.53 Liters per side) and the Adventure Dry Bag Duffel. They're made from 24 oz. electrically heat welded waterproof tarpaulin PVC and are a great deal. Look for it on my website within the next week. http://www.nelsonrigg.com/store/category.aspx?cid=100


I will offer the bags alone too.

Survivor Edition:

* Adventure Dry Saddlebags (Pair) - $116.95 shipping included
* Adventure Dry Bag Duffel 40 liter - $61.95 plus shipping
* Adventure Dry Bag Duffel 71.5 liter - $79.95 plus shipping


Thanks, Tom

I'm not sure I'll ever use a rotopax, but do you think there's an advantage to having the mounting plates for extra strength/stiffness on the side racks?

Good prices on those bags too.

If you don't need to put a RotopaX on there, then the plates would be a waste of money. The racks are strong as heck as is.

Thanks, I'm intent on keeping the Nelson-Rigg bags priced competitively!
