Hi there,

Been looking for quality racks for the Wee for a while now and also really liked the look of the Wolfman bags and mounting system.

After approaching Steve from Adventure Moto, I offered him my Wee (K7) as a development mule for he and his pal Jason Barrett (Barrett Exhausts - Racing Exhausts and Performance Products to design and build these racks.

I am extremely happy with the result, very strong, plenty of leg room for passenger on the back as well and very versatile.

I suggested the addtional D loops on the top rails of the racks to make it a cinch to tie down extra stuff. Real handy.







And looks like plenty of room for a tool tube to be fitted later......

















These same racks also fit the alloy cases also made by Jason Barrett.







Given the interest I see on forums for good quality racks for the Wee, I figured others would want to be informed of this new product now available in Australia.

I understand Steve is coming up with pricing for Wee owners with the new racks and Wolfman bags as a package deal.

If interested, contact the good folks at Adventuremoto a call on 1300 46 66 86 or [email protected]

Now where's me kitchen sink ?

Cheers...herdygerdy.

Nice set up with the option of hard and soft luggage.

I see you have ****'s [MJM at Goulburn NSW] seat, there is none better on a bike. :fineprint:

Now all you need is a B&B bashplate and a Nilgiri rack and you have a fully farkled bike for real travelling. :yesnod:

Thanks for posting up details of the racks. :thumbup:

G'day Herdy,

Thanks for posting that on the forum mate, these look fantastic and I'll be very interested in getting this set-up with those same bags in the near future.
I've got a staintune exhaust on my K7 wee and it appears as though it might stick out a bit further than the std exhaust and has it has no shield...just the the can so I wouldn't want the racks to be pressing up against the exhaust.That is my only concern on getting pannier racks.
I like the look of those yellow bags, seems to hold a lot of gear plus makes the bike more visable from the rear.
I'll be making some enquiries about these....Are you going to Bingara? if so I can check them out in real life.

Cheers

Well spotted Ockerstrom on ****'s seat. I am a Kiwi with ducks disease (me bum's too close to the ground) and so I took the challenge to **** at MJM in Goulburn, a real pleasant fellow to do business with.

I am real happy with the result and it is now pretty much an all day seat, or at least a whole tank of fuel kinda seat and on this Wee, I have amazingly seen 500 kms out of a tank. Oh Happy Daze !

I scored a bashplate from the PO when I bought the bike, but have resisted putting it on as my riding is about 95% tar, 5% dirt at the moment. But I hope to change that.

Yes, am keen for one of those racks, lets hope another production run is underway soon.

Cheers...herdygerdy

Hello, thanks for the info, Wolfman dont make them for the Strom so I got a set of Happytrails and the wolfman "other" mounting kit for my wolfman luggage, the mounting kit is a set of 8 d shackle's velcro strapped to the happy trail racks. I had to cut rectangles out of the stock heatshield where the HT rack uprights are. IMHO the racks you posted look better and I like the strap mounts however on steves rack it appears the bags are mounted slighty forward and higher than the happytrail rack postion, from my pic with me +wife the bags would be close to my wifes feet. The happytrail racks are evenly spaced from centre and fit a large tool tube (just)
Qu 1 - Are they evenly spaced from the centreline of the bike?
Qu 2 - Will they fit a large tootube and still give clearance for the rear tyre?
Qu 3 - Do you have any specs on the total width, size of steel tubing used, etc.

FYI, the wolfman bags have a protective backing sheet so they dont melt the bag. I dont put anyting on the right side that might get effected by heat, yes it does get hot but not enough to melt anything....so far.
