After reading the Cycle World article, it appears any on the "strap-over" bags will need full heat shields at any place they may touch the mufflers. The stock guards don't provide much side protection. That means 2 per side of the Giant Loop heat shields --- plus the bags: why I am hoping we get someone selling pannier racks soon - the stock racks may never materialize due to the sale to "KTM" ---

SW-Motech is taking orders and shipping. I just need to wrap my head around the price.

Has anyone tried just taking the mufflers off and wrapping them in headerwrap?
that stuff really helps with the heat. man i gotta get my own Tr soon, Im missing out on all this fun problem solving stuff. anyway back to my headerwrap idea, you gotta get the good stuff though, there's one brand that makes it using "molten lava rock" i cant remeber that name brand but it says that on the packaging. I've used it myself on my old Victory and it works really well and im sure would work for this.

Hansi, what kind of cases are those. They look like an ammo can and a pelican case had a baby. I'm intrigued.

They are 25mm plastic ammo cans from my local Army/Navy store, they look sturdy enough to survive a pretty good spill.

They are on the small side

Added some loops for strapping down luggage to the top and bottle holders to the back of the cases. They seemed like a good and inexpensive choice for now. They fit the slim lines of the Terra very well. I think with strapping down luggage on the top of the cases and carrying fuel/water bottles on the outside and having a waterproof large stuffsack on the passenger seat that will be more than enough storage for a decently long camping trip.

Very cool. I guess Fort Bragg is old school. We still get all our ammo in green metal cans....which I have tons of.

Wolfman/BRMoto racks

Same post as at CafeHusky:

After speaking with Berg at BRMoto (fabricator of Wolfman racks), we arranged for him to use my Terra to develop luggage and top racks in early April! Very excited to see his results!

I was waiting for the OEM Givi bags, but that may never happen with the buyout; after looking at the (likely) pricing from the other suppliers, the Wolfman solutions sure are attractive to me. I lack tools, skills and temperament to attempt making my own (hats off to the TERRAFORMERS!!).

Anyone seen or heard anything on the Safaritank for the Terra yet, like how it fits, what happens to the plastics for the radiator and fake tank etc?

Safari's site only says it's a 25 liter tank (6.6 gallon), indicating it will likely be a complete replacement, and won't be an "add-on" like their 12 liter tank was for the G450X (working in tandem with the stock uderseat tank to provide big capacity).

If it replaces the underseat tank and has another 3 gallons capacity - it will have to fit around the airbox and would almost surely take up the same area the shrouds occupy now. That isn't a 'fake tank', it's airbox.

Please forgive me for my indiscretion. I thought this was the "Terra accessories" thread, where not just owners but also prospective buyers like me might look for bike outfitting ideas. And I guess I missed it on the generic "2013 Husqvarna 650 Terra" thread before I posted it there too. Terrible me. I hope who ever posted about it first - and whoever has one already - gets all the credit. Please, all who read this, please give kudos to Blakebird. He was before me.

You posted that same picture in every Terra thread in Thumpers....that was the point of my comment.

It doesn't appear you're a TR owner, and don't spend as much time in the TR650 threads

This Cycoactive piece for the G650X looks like it will fit - the Terra has two lugs down there too.
