DR650, WR250R/X, CRF250L Billet Luggage Racks from ScaggsMotoDesigns.com

I wanted to make an announcement that even though I have been producing and selling the highest quality, most functional and best looking Billet Luggage racks for the WR250R/X for a couple years now I have finally launched a website!

http://ScaggsMotoDesigns.com

A long time coming, I know, but finally here. With the addition of the 96-up DR650 Big Rack kit last summer and the Slim and Big Racks for the new Honda CRF 250L this spring, a dedicated website has become necessary.

Later this spring/early summer I should have a premium rack solution for the DRZ400s and SM, KLX250S and possibly later in the year start moving into the bigger adventure bikes if time allows.

I've been granted access to the awesome KTM 350 and 500 exc's from a local dealer and if there is enough interest I will come up with products for them as well.

My goal set to be accomplished with these racks are making your Dual Sport more effective for commuting and touring. Of paramount importance to myself in all the things I design for my customers is style. I see so many luggage racks that detract from a bike's look, feel and design. In my eyes all of my kits improve and or compliment a bikes original design.

A robust knowledge of manufacturing processes and parts end use plays a major role in my simple, stylish designs. My racks are machined, have all corners well chamfered and are meant to be friendly to your hands, straps and accessories. Laser cut sheet metal racks are in my capability but not up to par due to the unavoidable sharp edges, while cheaper to manufacture(much cheaper!) just not up to snuff.

Thanks for reading my rambles....

Givi Monokey Lug Kits now available!

Thanks guys, pictures hardly do justice. The first time you see one of these in person you'll flip your lid.

I wanted to announce that I now have Givi Monokey Top case mounting kits for all my Big Racks available on the website. The necessary link for getting a Givi Monokey case to latch down on the Big Racks.

check it out!

Dang, those things look excellent! If I hadn't already spent $140 on a rack (last year) for my DR, I wouldn't hesitate to pick one up!

I just ordered one with Givi Monokey mounting hardware, Jared.

Can't wait to use it for my topcase. No more schlepping my helmet around!

Greetings from Colorado,
Armin

I have on of your big racks on my WRR, and on a scale of 1-10, it ranks right in at Fucking Badass. And cheaper than other billet ones out there.
Roto Pax goes on with ease.

Good stuff ! Happy Customer

DRZ400S & SM Billet Rack Prototype! Finally!

I am in the design process for the new DRZ400 Billet Rack and I wanted to get some input from you guys, I want to see what you guys think about the size, shape and mounting details because I feel that it is drastically different from everything else out there.

What I have pictured is only .062" aluminum that I cut out with my CNC Plasma. Great for prototyping! Only took 1 minute to cut this shape out!

The final rack would be CNC machined from 1/4" Aluminum billet, like all the others that I currently offer. Also, would be Anodized in Black, maybe in a grey or titanium color as well.




This rack will be able to utilize a Givi Monokey Top Case mounting kit, and Rotopax system.



I am using this 12g Steel bracket to give an 'extra' set of mounting holes.
(bare steel in the picture, finished product would be Powdercoated)
One thing that I don't like about most or all of the other DRZ racks is that they mount using the Seat bolts as a front mounting point. There are two things about that method that bug me.

One, it makes for more trouble than I would consider acceptable just to be able to remove the seat. That bolt has to go through the Bracket, a spacer, then the side panel, then the metal tab on the seat just to get to threads on the Frame!

Two, mounting using the seat holes creates a pivot point for the whole system which puts all the weight and stress on the two bolts going into the aluminum bracket that's welded between the sub frame rails. I'm sure its fine for light loads, but personally I load my bike down with some serious weight and that design wouldn't cut it for some of my 70 mile trips to the Heat treating shop with a box full of tool steel strapped on the back.


This particular bike has a DRC Edge tail light kit so the bolt holes I am using are not used. I realize the stock tail fender monstrosity uses these bolts, but being plastic can be squeezed together and slip this bracket around it. I bought one off ebay to make sure this assumption was correct, only to realize that the one I bought was severly broken, so of course the bracket fits over the one I bought because it has huge cracks at the mounting points from being wrecked. So, I am 99% confident it can work with stock tail assembly without being to much of a PITA to put together.

Can't wait to hear back from you guys!

Ordered a rack for my WRR a couple of days ago ( wed night or thur am). It showed up yesterday (sat). Pretty amazing service for a excellent product. Now if I can get some time to get it mounted, and the rest of the bike ride ready.

Thanks, Ryan

Talking DRZ 400 UPDATE ! almost ready!

DRZ400 UPDATE...

I have the details figured out, I've started producing parts to get these up for sale in 3-4 weeks. I like it a lot, I thought I'd show it off! I don't have any anodized yet, but will pretty soon.
