Crosspost from the other thread about this:

This setup is good for dirt, or road

And if you want something to read that will put you to sleep faster than an Ambien martini, you could check out the article I wrote about the iterative process that lead me to this design here. Hey, I'm just a guy that likes bikes.

Nice timing on bringing this thread back. I'm now riding a ST1300 and am planning to get started on the mounting system for it this weekend. WooHoo!

It's good to see so many bike on bike setups

I've made bicycle racks for three of my motorcycles, and all have used different setups depending on the bike.


Triumph Sprint bike rack attaches to the OEM pannier racks, homebuilt (for Givi) adapter plates, and SW-Motech top rack.


FJR 1300 bike rack attaches directly to a Givi top rack


The Aprilia Falco rack is a bit more complex than the other two and attaches to homebuilt pannier racks and rests atop the pillion.

KLR custom rack

Did 3,005 moto miles and 300 mountain biking miles with this setup from early May to early June. Portland, Yachats, Gold Beach, Humboldt County, Santa Rosa, St. Helena, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo, Long Beach, Laguna Beach, Temecula, San Diego, Ocotillo, Idyllwild, Palm Springs, Kernville, Mammoth, Susanville, Portland.

Coastal crosswinds on 2-lane Highway 1 / 101 aren't fun. Everything else about the trip was.

Yostwerks, this rack looks nice and stable! Can you show a closeup of how you attach the bottom bracket to the rail? I assume the bottom bracket rides on the gray block that is fit into the rail (shown in another of your pics)?

Any special tricks re: the rear derailleur and chain in order to deal with the travel vibration with the rear wheel out?

I use a chain keeper on my setup when I take the rear wheel off.

Put the chain on the big sprocket before putting it in the rack to keep tension tighter, pop the rear wheel off and the wheel keeper in and the chain won't bounce off the sprockets.

It's great to see all the different options for carrying bicycles on the back of a motorcycle. I hope to use my setup to do a float trip this summer, parking my motorcycle at the take-out point and riding my bicycle up to where I inflate my raft and put it in the water. Should be fun!

Packraft I assume (?Alpacka?). I've been thinking about getting one since I haven't come up with a way to tow my kayak behind the Transalp yet. I can tow it behind my bicycle though. Heading up to paddle Icy Bay near Yakutat in a couple weeks, but flying up with my Aire Lynx II for that.

I'll play..



The whole rack is on/off in about a minute using Yakima bases/tower. Bases stay in place on some parts I fabricated.

Thanks .... You are correct about the gray closed cell foam and bottom bracket setup. The standard Yakima strap wraps around one chainstay and the tray to secure the bike in place (pic). The chain is simply pulled up and over the brake pads to provide tension. I ride with the rear wheel removed to keep the bike's weight forward and to lower the CG. I've found this much improves the bikes stabilty... Tom
