    Hello guys.
    I have the SW-Motech rack.
    Ordered it unseen does not seem to exist any pictures of it yet.
    One downside to it, i think it's too far back. Plenty of room for the gas cap.
    I'm thinking of drilling some new holes and move the plate forward a few cm.

    Loren - any chance you could take a close up pic of the TT "pucks" on the outside and inside of your zegas? I just got them in the mail, and I'm not 100% sure which side the washers go on and which bolts go where. The only instructions are in German which alas I don't understand :deal .
    (or Stephan maybe you could translate them for me :clap )


    Love that rack grit grease - did you do it yourself?

    Can we get a pic of the "tubes/bars" only, without the "adapter"?

    Thanks for the pics Loren! I thought that was how it went but wasn't positive.

    Yes, without the plate as well, if that is not too much trouble.

    I am assuming the "tubes" are one part, and the "plate" is an option?

    I've put my old ortlieb bags on it this past weekend it worked out fine. i put a few hoseclamps around the guards on the exhaust just to keep the bag a little further away from the nuclear reactor. I made sure not to pack the bratwurst or the stove fuel on that side before i left. I had no issues. i'll take some pictures of it, its still packed up in the garage.

    Dang it, KTM's gone and dorked with their websites again and now they're only listing the 690R and don't show any accessories for it. Does someone have the KTM part number for the 2008 690 Enduro luggage rack that holds the aluminum panniers? TIA!

    (BTW, pannier part numbers are 60012024100 (41L) and 60012024000 (35L).)

    ETA: Whoops--found it on ktm-parts.com. It's 76512020000.

    Hey picnics, were those the standard throw-overs or the QLR2 quick release ones? And which rack are you using—the KTM standard one?

    (I have a pair of the Ortlieb QLR2s that I love and would prefer to use instead of the OEM aluminum bags. My KTM rack is back-ordered, so I have to ask... thanks!)

    Cycle Hutt tells me they're backordered until the beginning of September. I guess I'll have to go sans panniers during my Labor Day ride.
