Why no Givi link?
That must be the new design racks is it?
Thats the setup im planning on getting but only ever seen the ones on wolfman video which he fits to the drz, the ones youve got look a lot stronger.
How do you find them?
I like the look of the monsoon bags too, never heard of them before, could be handy if the girlfriend ever comes away with me
I also have the Wolfman Expedition panniers and I love them. The rack is rock solid too.
Nice setup. Do you have a photo facing the rear? Overall width?
Fixed thanks.. Any more?
10 inch panniers, Width is 36 inches overall
Rear: Sorry, not the best photo:
Right side w/ cut out:
Well, it's a really nice setup, tucks in very well. I will have to decide if starting over and spending the bucks is worth it for 3" of width. At 36 the boxes are just an inch beyond the handlebar ends on each side. That's pretty good. The extra width I've got makes splitting a little more hair-raising. I'd be included to go 8 or 9 in width if they do them, that would get them at or inside the bar ends.
I'm also not at all happy with my HT racks with the way they configured the right front attach point - blocks the option of a LV can.
They set theirs up symetrical so the left side hangs out ridiculously far. These cases are only 7" deep:
Originally Bob from Micatech had suggested making the 8 inch for the tiger, but I tend to overpack and wanted the extra space so we went with the 10 (prototype). If you are ever decide to go with the 8 inch, you may want to contact him. If he needs a bike to make them, I would offer mine up again over the winter months.
Another potential option is Globe Scout. You'll need to buy a rack from someone else but they look like really good quality. You can ask questions on the Global Scout thread.They are in talks to get a US Distributor. They also look nicer than Touratech to me. They go for about 650 bucks. I think they'd look real sharp on a XC. Online Store

You could use the Hepco and Becker rack for about 300 to mount the panniers and get a complete system for under 1000. Not bad really.
Globe Scoute sales the mounting kit for about 50 bucks a piece which looks to be good quality as well. That of course adds 100 bucks to mount the cases.
Just upgraded from the OEM panniers to these. The kit was flawless and easy to install. I highly recommend Happy Trails and their overall service.
Over all width of racks with out panniers is 24" and with panniers it is 39". The kit is symetrical.
Also, the space on the left side was great for adding a Mega tool tube
OEM panniers for sale on the flea market if anyone is interested. Or PM me
what racks and mounting kit are those?
Is that the 140's not 150 sized rear tire, details please? Where did you get them, performance opinion so far...?
Racks are SW Moto Tech and buggered if I can remember who I got the mounting kits from. I'll try and figure it out if I can.
They look like Happy Trail.
That is a 140. So far it has been great and it seems to turn in better. I bought it from my local dealer in Medford, OR called Hansen's Motorcycles.
Nice! If you dont mind me asking, how much did they run you? I appreciate the reply Brian!
Got mine from revzilla for about 150$ with free shipping. Best price I found. Absolutely love it so far too.
Paid $165 for the rear and $90 for the front. You can certainly find them cheaper. Revzilla would be cheaper.
Thanks foir that!
Couple more question if you don't mind... Have you seen any speed difference or mpg changes? Do you have a gps that you can tell the size difference is causing a difference in speed registered??
