    Received these a while back but was waiting for some better weather to give the bike a wash before posting pics.
    I love everything about the rack except the mounting screws.
    Simple design and installed in less that 10 minutes. This should work out great for hauling my Shtuff to BYOB '09 :thumb
    Now, before anyone comments on the photo, yes I now I'm missing a screw on the chain guard :bluduh

    Hey Rick! You think you can do a chain gaurd and matching sensor cover like Touratech's for the F650GS? That would be great!

    I just the rack in the mail, installation was a breeze. Great product.

    I may mount mine upside down so I can add the Givi posts and latch and the Givi top case would mount right up when needed. It may work normal but I will have checked to see if the rear lip would interfere.

    Thanks

    All,
    Last evening i received what i believe is one of the first prototype KILDALA F8GS rear racks :clap . The fifteen minutes it took to install it included taking it off for some tweeks and a cold one :1drink . Fit and finsh are excellent. It is securely attached to the four existing points on the tail section. At approximately 2.5 lbs. it adds minimal weight for the functionality. With a surface area of about 11" x 15" and 11 holes for attaching luggage it provides plenty of luggage capacity. I think it complements the bike well. I'll post more when I have loaded it up and done a couple rides.

    Rick I will send a PM.

    Got my rear rack this week, and it looks great! Perfect fit and very stable. I'll be strapping some tires down this weekend to get them changed out, so I'll let you know how the rack performs.

    Now, to figure out how I want to mount a Pelican to it...

    Thanks, Kildala! The fat foot looks great too... I'll be ordering one soon, I think. Any other products in the works?

    i have one of these that i'm not using if anyone is interested. i bought it back in 2007 but never installed it (it's a great product, but i installed a topbox instead).

    2 issues are; it has a small scratch on the top and it does not come with the 4 mounting bolts (it didn't come with mounting bolts when i bought it new). but it is brand new and has never been installed.

    60.00 shipped to whoever would like it.

    Hey Kildala Man, excellent rear rack for my BMW f650gs. Easy to install, great workmanship and of course, quick and easy delivery. Thanks again, it looks great and works well on the bike. DirtDonna.

    Hey Rick!
    I just did a weekend with the "family's" 650. Look for pics (eventually) over at the WARPED thread. There may be some in ride reports (some day:D ). There was a group of over 100 ADVers gathered up next to a river near the Sierras. Time to get the fat foot and the master cylinder shield. I see you have the fat foot (which I'll take :D) any luck on master cyl shield?
    Thanks!

    Just got my rack today. After seeing other posts talking about how quickly it mounted, I had to time myself. It took less than 5 minutes--really. I've never had an accessory go on so quickly. Nicely made, too.

    This sure looks like one of them! Look at that nice match on the G650GS. It appears you had to re-design it a bit to fit the non Dakar models?
