Whether your planning an overnighter, the big desert trek or cape trip pannier racks just make life so much more simple, people in general have a habit of carrying way way too much gear. Pannier racks help to keep your weight lower and more balanced. They also offer protection in case of a fall or sometimes many falls !
Soft or hard panniers can be attached and also includes mounting system for rotopax or similar.
Basic instructions –
Pannier racks use the same mounting points as your stock grab handles, these should be removed, most people remove them anyway ! Your new racks become your grab rails.
These pannier racks were designed and made based around a standard DR650. Pannier racks should work with all carry racks, use the bolts supplied with the ABA pannier racks. In some cases minor modifications, spacers or longer bolts may need to be used subject to what brand carry rack you use. There would be a dozen different racks on the market, all these products are fighting for just the few mounting points available on a motorcycle.
The lower mounting point is the passenger footpeg mount. Use your existing bolts if you want to remove the passenger pegs or use the bolts supplied if you want to retain the passenger pegs.
WHEN MOUNTING YOUR PANNIER RACKS DO NOT TIGHTEN ANY HARDWARE UNTIL EVERYTHING IS IN PLACE
If you have bought the optional crossbar brace this mounts on the inside of the tabs.
Again once with everything finger tight work your way around the rack putting more turns on the bolts as you go till everything is tight and secure.
Some may choose to use a low strength thread lock, nut lock, lock tight or similar.
NOTE – more images to come.

We have half a dozen different indicators to choose from under category ‘lighting/electrical’
