    Rick,
    Just to make sure we're on the same page, you're looking for Touratech, not Trail Tech. The parts you are looking for is the 18mm pannier mounting kit. One kit gets you the parts for a single pannier, so you'll need two. I would recomment looking at putting a Pelican case on there with the TT mounts. You could order one from Caribou (see Vendor forum), just without the mount points, then add the TT mounting kit... or you can just order a straight pelican in whatever size you need and adapt it entirely yourself.

    http://www.touratech-usa.com/shop/s...ession=touratech:18CDD27F11b3c0F1A2iTH2431495

    The racks that I have are the factory KTM racks. Any of the Touratech bags will fit right on b/c the KTM bags are just re-badged Zegas for TT. If you order the Zegas with the mounts pre-installed from TT, they sit at the correct angle on the racks. You cannot order the 29 L from KTM for some reason, have to go right to TT. I am very happy with the size / width of this setup.

    Regards,

    Loren

    Hey Loren,

    Thanks for the pics looks great and nice fuel reserve :deal

    When you get a chance could you drop a tape measure across the panniers mounted on the bike for overall width? I'm curious about these but am tired of the wide ones on my 640. Those are the 35l size?

    cheers,
    Brandt

    I've already got a set of Dirtbagz I had bought for the XR, so I ordered the KTM racks. Just gonna use the dritbagz on those. Now I just have to wait for them to get off back order.

    Beautiful!

    ObiWan, Did you by the boxes from Touratech with the mounting pucks already installed? Part 152-1033 I think. Or did you install the pucks yourself?

    Those are 2x 29L correct?

    edit: I am pretty sure thats what you did from reading the thread - just want to confirm.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    My Zegas are both 29 litres, and they did come with the TT factory-mounted pucks. The TT customer service guy said that he thought it would not work well with the factory-mounted pucks on the KTM racks b/c of the mounting angle - clearly that's not the case. Since the 29 litres were on backorder without the pucks, I tried it out myself w/ no problems, as you can see.

    On the bike, the 29 litre bags measure 34" across, 18" off centerline for the left, 16" off centerline to for the right.

    For comparison, an R12GS with Vario luggage in the un-expanded position, is 32" across.

    While I'm not sure that the KTM guys necessarily meant to mount a 35L on the left and a 41L on the right, it does seem like a good way to go if you need that much space. It's going to be battleship wide, though. In the early KTM hard parts photos, they had that same setup, it's on page 126 of the threadfest:

    found some more pics again. As posted before: I used frame clips from the SuperDuke. They scratch frame surface to much for me. So Iam back to just thread the belts through the frame.
    Fits perfect.
    I have my mobile phone with TomTom navigation software in the clear top.
    Tankbag is extendable too.

    Have fun
    Ciao

    The documentation available at the German site says the mount fits Garmin Street Pilot 2610 - 2820, Zumo, Quest, and TomTom Rider.

    Damn, no 276/378/479?
    I just need to figure out a way to mount my touratech mount from my R1200GSA on it I guess.

    If you go to a BMW dealer, they will sell you the GPS mounting bolts from an R1200GS. They are the correct size and pitch to replace the stock KTM (and most others) handlebar pinch bolts. The BMW bolts have an extended top that is threaded so you can bolt a mount right on. I took a Touratech mount for my 60 CSX, drilled holes in the back to match and bolted it right onto the BMW bolts. If you have a horizontal format GPS, use the BMW bolts on the left and right pinch bolts, then connect the two with a piece of aluminum and use that to mount your GPS. I have a basic pic at home, can post after work. I don't have part numbers, sorry.

    Edit: Pic as promised

    The bolts needed to thread into the rear subframe are M8 1.25 - length will depend on what rack you are using, but 70mm - 80mm should suffice for most fitments. The subframe threads do not go all the way through, so if your bolt is too long, you'll need spacers.
