    Does anybody know of a video (I couldn't find one on youtube) or have some decent instructions on installing the PowerParts 60312978044 "baggage carrier" top rack on the 790R? The instructions it came with are worthless, and i dont see any holes lining up to bolt it down.

    I was in the same boat - go to post # 870 here... and get your wallet out... :D:D

    It appears that that guy did not get the "distance pieces" (P/N 60312987010, shown here) that screw into the top case carrier, and that the M6x20 carrier plate mounting screws go into - mine had those.

    well, that's disappointing; considering the price at over $100 - each. That makes over $200 for the tail platform. KTM should also update their instructions to match, as there's no mention of the 790 in there.

    Also very annoying that my dealer didn't say "Oh you need another part for that to work."

    I share your concern - the Power Parts info for the carrier on the KTM webpage made no mention of it either.
    On the plus side, a 30-pack fits on it just fine! :beer
