I have made some design changes to the DRZ 400S racks to be compatible with anybody's side racks.

I thank CoursegoldKid for the excellent ideas and the kick in the ass to get me going on these necessary changes.

The flat bars are heavier now and have bends in them to mount to the backside of the subframe tabs. This leaves the tab clear for mounting of side racks without the flatbars interfering.

I've eliminated the two center tubes and made the mounting plate for the RotopaX mount longer.

Everything else is still the same as the old design.

Nuts are welded to the underside of the mounting plate for the RotopaX Mount. This allows quick mount/dismount.
