Any time you start extending a rear rack backwards like that, you should pay special attention to the mounting since it will put much more leverage on the subframe and mounting rack. Especially with a pretty heavy tent on the top of the topbox and a passenger leaning on it, there will be a lot of stress being put on the mounting system.
We suggest you talk to Touratech Nordic and ask their advice since they are your closest distributor, and a very good one at that: http://www.touratech.se/main/

Any chance Touratech will start producing products for the DR650? Specifically pannier mounts. I have a set of Zega 2's on my F800. It would be nice to be able to swap bags back and forth. Figured it was worth a shot since they ventured into the KLR scene.

I mounted the full set of Zega Pro's on my new-to-me KTM 990 Adventure R.
The bike is used way too much for commuting, (my primary transport). On my old 1150 Adventure I used a set of Jesse's and a BMW Adventure top box.
I have to carry a laptop once in a while for work, and sometimes operate my office from my bike. The three bags work.
I have not trusted a bag to be perfectly waterproof since the old Krauser bags of the 70's so I pack accordingly. No problems so far. I have not used the Zega's yet in a full downpour but expect some water creep. I could have done without the latch quick release of the top box, but I do like it since it's there.
Touratech were great to deal with between the two of us we only missed one lock and that wasn't really a big issue as I wasn't in a crush for time. Planning ahead when buying is a good idea. Even the grocery store are out of things at times.
Fit and finish are very nice. Everything mated up pretty simply. There are a lot of joints to make so it takes a little fiddling and careful alignment and work but no grinding or drilling. No melted turnsignals either!
I think they look great on the bike.
Once I get my bash plate mounted and a free weekend I can see how it all works in the desert camping.

My visit to TT Seattle
My wife and I stopped by TT in Seattle to buy some gloves on our way to Alaska. We both purchased Klim Element short gloves at the cost of about $350 bucks total. Nice gloves, no problem.
Now, I ask if we can both have a TT Seattle sticker. He said they're out but should have some in a few days. I asked him if he would put a couple in the mail to us for when we get home. He has the balls to tell me I need to call to BUY a sticker and he will throw in a couple if I remind him I was in the Seattle showroom. That way they are already sending me something but they can't just send them on their own.
REALLY? I just bought $350 bucks worth of gloves and you can't mail me a couple 5 cent stickers? I was blown away. What a bunch of chickenshits. I will NEVER do business again with a company as arrogant as this.
You people are really short sighted and stupid. I spend a LOT of money on bikes and gear and none of it will ever be spent at your company again. How sad that you would spend your marketing budget getting customers into your store then ruin any chance of them spending more there. Especially over a couple 5 cent stickers. To be clear, I don't give a rat's ass about the stickers, it's the disrespect and arrogance that I would call, BUY a TT sticker simply so I can have a couple TT Seattle stickers after I just spent $350 bucks on gloves.
