    After reading extensively on this and many other forums I installed the sw motech quick release brackets on my Wee last night. Irregardless of the horror stories I have read the install was so painless that I figured I had f'd it up but after checking it out again this morning I think all is well. If this is any indication of the build quality of sw motech I will not hesitate to purchase from them again. As for now I just wait for the bags.

    :y0! I have the SW-Motech Quick-Lock EVO side carriers on my K6 Wee. Went on like a piece of cake. Mounted the mounting brackets loosely, attached the racks, and then tightened up everything slowly and evenly. I have 4,000 miles on the setup and no issues and no complaints.

    I've got swmotech mounts on both a dl 650 and a 919. High equality and painless to install

    This is a tight shot of the brackets. I didn't use the rear turn signal relocation parts, no need to.
