    ^^ What he said. Givi E115F junction kit. 20-25 bucks, which is hiway robbery for what it is but the Perun is predrilled to accept it. Works like a charm.

    Thread necromancy :D

    My wife's bike has the KTM hard parts tray along with a Touratech top case mount like the guy has pictured above. I want to remove the grab handles but looks like I'll need some spacers to make up for the handles leaving. Anyone know where I can get the appropriate spacers? TIA

    I used Bronze bushings to eliminate the grab handles on an 1190. Don't see why it wouldn't work on the 790 as well. Something like these. Though there are a lot of different places to order them from in various materials. Just have to figure measure out the needed height and get something close, or get longer ones and cut to length.

    Prerun sends the spacers with the kit.

    speaking of...I’m awaiting some new goodies from them any day. They make a quality product.

    Indeed! And a nice assortment of them at that. But he has the KTM plate, not sure it comes with any spacers to eliminate the grab handles.

    You need for spacer, approx. 23 mm high. Inside diameter for M8 bolt - 8.2 - 9 mm. And outside diameter 18 - 20 mm. You should be able to source them locally. Anyone with a lathe can make it in 15 min.

    I ordered a set from McMaster-Carr (https://www.mcmaster.com/92511A104/). They are just raw aluminum, but nothing a rattle can cant fix.

    My shipment arrived today. Definitely quality stuff- new design large tail rack and the new, first run tie-down brackets. Now if my new bike would just show up...

    Surprised you went with the luggage racks, I thought you wanted to keep the panels?

    i do like the panels most time, but if I’m gonna run the r40 I will now remove them to keep the bags tighter.
    They’ll go back on with the normal pannier racks I use for commutering.

    I was going to do the side plates and some bags as I like how they use them as standoffs for the r80, but ended up doing the r10 for day rides instead

    I have the Perun rack with subplates as well, but just ordered the newer design small Perun rack to try out (just to save a couple of lbs.). I have a Mosko R80 and an R10, but have not used either yet.

    I haven't put my new large plate on the scale yet, but based on how light it feels, even with the Givi hardware attached, forget about loosing a pound or more with the small plate! A couple of ounces, possibly.

    I have the old version of the Perun rack with the submount plates. The submount plates are made out of steel and add some weight to the setup that the newer version (both the newer large rack and the new small rack) does not because it does away with the submount plates.
