Independent top rack is a large 16.5" x 14.5" to carry camping gear, dry bags, and a RotopaX!



The three rack system is the only one like it for the "E"!



Order yours today!

I received my top rack a few days ago. Haven't mounted it yet but it's definitely a stout piece. Holding it up to the bike, it looks like it'll drop right into place without any bending/grinding or other 'special fitting techniques'.

Will post pics once it's mounted up.

Thanks Roll-sen, I'm looking forward to the pics! The install should be pretty straightforward. The hardest part is lining up the seats metal tabs with the hole. I use a flashlight and look into the hole to make sure everything is lined up before inserting the bolts.

These are the goods, people! It's the only complete adventure rack system I am aware of for the E model. With a few modifications (talk to Jackpiner57), they can be made to mount the GIVI E21 hard bags, which gives a nice, economical weatherproof solution for hard luggage without breaking the bank. The E21s will also not break your leg in a fall as readily as some of the sharp-edged hard cases.

Needless to say, they also adapt to a wide variety of soft bags.

This is a fantastic price from an excellent fabricator working in the USA. Help a fellow rider out!

Thanks for the support Tim! There hasn't been much interest in the DRZ-E racks here on ADVrider. I'm working on a website right now, and I'm hoping that will help to bring them into the light.

Hi Bill, the weight of the rack and left side bracket is 6.5 lbs. This rack will support as much weight as you want to put on it. The weight limitation is just before the E's aluminum sub-frame snaps.

I'm taking orders for the DRZ-E racks and they take two weeks. I custom make these one at a time, but I may discontinue these due to lack of interest.

Does it work with a Giant Loop Great Basin?

G'day Tom,

I have an Australian DRZ 400E (which I believe has the S subframe), and I'm wanting to use the side racks to carry fuel, in combination with a Great Basin for everything else.

Do you have any pictures of a bike with the side racks and the Great Basin?

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?

Cheers,

Adrian

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?
