Givi PL3101 sidebag rack problem
Think of this as a sanity check. I tried to install PL3101's on my 2013 650. The left rack is fine, but I have a problem with the right rack. I had a Givi rack on my '06, so I'm familiar with a less than perfect fit. This is not a mere tolerance issue nor can I see any shipping damage. The rack does not clear the shields on the exhaust system and I can see no way to mount it. I think that Givi mis-labeled the rack but the vendor is skeptical and reluctant to pay for return shipping.
If you look at the picture:
- The bottom of the rack is loosely attached with a dowel rod and a zip tie
- The top is tied with white string to bolts in the holes where the rack is supposed to attach
- Note that the rack contacts the exhaust system and that the bag mounting plane is nowhere near vertical.
Am I missing something obvious? Thanks for any help you can offer.
