"I need some help. I'm having some fitment issues with my happy trails SU racks. I need some pics of someones rear/pillion foot peg on the exhaust side. I need multiple views if possible. One pointing straight forward with the camera pretty close to the pipe, one from the top, and one from the side facing to the rear. I think mine might be bent. I don't see any stress cracks on any welds and it doesn't seem like the paint is cracking any where. While I was camping this last weekend my bike fell over in the middle of the night. I don't think it would have bent the peg but something just isn't right. Here is what I'm talking about. See how its slightly bulged out on the par of the peg closest to the pipe? It seems like it should be more straight.
Edit: after looking through several other pics I think its normal... hopefully someone can help me confirm. "

Hope these show the view you are after--





Let me know if you any other angles.

Jerry

Jerry - you're a good guy! fbj913 - what kind of fitment issues ? I mounted my SU / HT racks last week. Only issue I had was, on exhaust side, where the 2 bolts / nuts that go through the clamps that attatch to stanchion. One bolt (closest to the front of bike) is making slight contact with exhaust pipe. Will need to watch & remedy if any wear spot occurs. I might be able to bend rack frame slightly downward (1/16") to make a space - but didnt want to go "hacking" on anything just quite yet. I learned to "mull" a bit before I 'modify' things - sometimes there is a simpler answer to problems, than my first impulse at correction. Can send you pic from iphone if you provide email address.

Yep same problem I had. Exhaust side bolts dont fit. I talked to happy trails today and they are going to send me some different U brackets that are slightly thinner. They said 2 bikes that they have heard of so far have this issue. They think its a difference in vin numbers and where the frames were manufactured. true or not i dont know...

Has anyone found a rear rack that is a bit bigger, with the ability to tie things to various ways, and one that's easily adaptable to a trunk? This is the best I've found so far- http://www.motoagora.com/product_inf...-800800xc-p-39

It's pretty close, but I want one a bit bigger and with more tie down points.

Basically I want to be able to either use a trunk or have a kick-ass rack that will hold a lot.

I have the SW Motech rack. Low profile by itself but accepts multiple quick release adapter plates for luggage systems.

Available at twistedthrottle.com

I'm not too fond of the Touratech since it doesn't have an option for the luggage adapters, thanks though.

Looks like it's between the AltRider and SW-Motech, similar prices and similar looks...

caribou has plate mounts, top boxes and quick release system
http://cariboucases.com/store/?name=Home
i think the 25L (a pelican 1520 case) is an ideal top case.
it's no so tall that it's visually top heavy on the bike.
it's rugged as all hell for off-road use and i has a huge flat surface for strapping a bag on top if need be.
caribou also has pads to add for passenger confort.

here's a 1520 mounted on my DR

San Diego Back Country Discovery Route

Do we have any other Tiger XC owners in San Diego on here? I'm mapping out a 2 day San Diego Back Country Discovery Route for a weekend ride in our back yard. When i'm done i'll post the gpx file in a new thread devoted to the route. I'de love any help for taking video and pictures of the more interesting sections. I'll have it avalable in Google Earth KML and gpx files.

that rear rack w/ the Givi mounts and treker case is pretty sweet.
