The racks look like they may be too far forward to do this, but if you or anyone else was able to try this combination, it would be much appreciated.

Otherwise, would you be interested in tweaking the brackets to suit?


Hi Adrian, I don't have any pictures of A Great Basin on my DRZ-E racks. It's possible it could work though.

The Australian DRZ-E sub-frame is a hybrid. The top portion is like the USA DRZ-S and the lower portion is like the USA DRZ-E. The side racks that I offer will fit the Australian DRZ-E, but it does not utilize the top sub-frame tabs. Therefore, they require the top rack for attachment.

It looks like the Great Basin bag is designed to sit on the rear fender and the lower legs just need something to keep them out of the wheel and off the exhaust. The rear rack might get it the way?
