New Billet Cargo Rack for Suzuki DR650! Givi & Rotopax ready

Hello, My name is Jared Scaggs. I began building Scaggs Racks for the WR250R/x over a year ago, 250+ sold and counting I decided to create a new rack for the DR650 96-current that I think is unparalleled in style and functionality. It incorporates 5 mounting points making it ultra solid. Using heavy gauge steel for side brackets and 1/4" aluminum for the top plate, I have a versatile, light weight combination ready to take on any challenge.
The rack has tapped holes for quick on/off mounting of the rotopax mount. Also, a hole pattern to accept Givi Monokey lugs. I have many of these available at the moment and will continue to provide these for sale.
The kit I am selling includes all Stainless Steel hardware and Aluminum spacers, and free shipping within the United States. Int'l shipping is available for additional fee.


Send me a PM for questions or intent to order. I can also be reached at jnscaggs@gmail.com

Thumb New Billet Cargo Rack for Suzuki DR650! Givi & Rotopax ready

Jared made a custom Billet Alum. plate to mount up a windsceen for my DR a while back, so when I found out he was designing a Rear Rack for the DR650SE I told him I would buy one from his first batch.

The DR650SE “Scaggs” Rear Rack really does have tons of functionality, as well as the 5 point mounting for strength.

If you need a Hard Top Case … just buy a Givi lug kit …
= = =

= = =
= = =
and pop on a Givi Monokey Top case. …
= = = = = =

= = = = = =
= = = = = =
Want to switch to a soft Tailbag, just pop off the Givi case and strap on the Tailbag … for most soft tailbags you will not need to remove the Givi lugs ….
= = =

= = = =

= = = =
A nice touch is that the slots on the rack are large enough that most 1” strap CLIPS will fit through …
= = = =

= = = =
= = = =
To mount a RotoPAX tank, just bolt the RotoPAX mount using the 6mm tapped holes …. The front givi lugs can stay attached, but the rear will have to be removed to mount up the RotoPAX tank.
= = = =

= = = = = =

Lots of options !

Yada .. Yada … Yada … no affiliation with Jared, just a happy customer

More options

You can also use the RotoPAX 2 Gallon Storage Pack

= = = =

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

If you're creative - you can pack quite a bit of stuff in there ..

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Then strap your tailbag on top ...
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

This rack is the type I'm interested in. As soon as some more cash flow comes in (holidays are now over) looks like I'll be picking this up for my DR. A buddy has one on his WRR and loves it, recommended this.

Great! You'll love it. I do have them on sale currently on eBay for $110+ calculated shipping (usually between $8-16) depending on your location.

I can of course give the same deal to anyone who would be willing to order directly from me and save me on eBay fees. Email me anytime at jnscaggs@gmail.com

Installed Jared's rack today, perfect fit. Very solid. No pics, bike is partially disassembled and dirty from last Saturday's ride. It didn't get over 33 degrees today so limited time spent in the cold garage. I'll get some pics by next weekend. Thanks Jared for the excellent product!

Can the factory rear handles coexist with this rack? I really like the rack design, but I end up using those handles to heft the bike around quite a bit - they would be sorely missed.

If you could do one of those for an '02 Triumph Tiger, I'd be your best friend. Lol

They should be able to... except...

I have the GSXR exhaust mounted with a Keintech adapter/mount that is about 3/8" thick. I don't know if the handles would fit. I didn't have the handles, had the factory rack with built in handles. Pretty sure the left side would, the right side may have to have some shimmying to get it on with longer bolts. If I ever come across some handles I'll check it out, would like to have them.

if need be one can use only the original muffler bolt (center bolt) with that Keintech hanger bar.

-remove the right-side rack upright/support
-mount Keintech muffle hanger bar and all 3 bolts w/ muffler so the system is in place.
-drill through the muffler hanger tab and mount bar in a spot offset from the existing bolt. you'll be putting a bolt & nut through here to create a 3rd bolt point after the rearwards bolt is gone. support needs 3 points of contact. use stainless hardware.
-remove keintech bar and cut of the rear portion where the rear bolt is. keep the cut-out section in place where the existing center bolt (original muffler) as this cut-out (to match the frame) offers great alignment and support. make sure you cut clears the rear rack upright supports.
-bolt all 3 bolts back together and you'll have a Keintech hanger that does not move, yet only needs 1 frame bolt (the original muffler bolt spot)

at this point the factory passenger grab rails should all bolt back outboards of the rear rack support plates (assuming the handles are not taller than the height of the bottom of the top deck of the rack). you might need some stainless washers to do slight leveling between the rack uprights and the grab handles & more than likely longer bolts.

that is really the only unknown here? eyeballing it say no.

So Jared,
Love how you utilized that center fender bolt point for max strength!
That is missing in most all other designs, yet is needed because of that week left rear side mount tab.

Big question???

Are you going to offer a larger optional "tour" sized top plate for use with a larger dry duffel? With your design, one could remove the top 5 mount bolts and quickly go to a larger tour sized plate when needed and switch back for day rides. The mounts bolts on the side plates might need to be backed off a bit to help from system binding and then re-snugged, but i'm guessing 5 min and the whole top rack could be changed out per need.
