I had a set of their racks and was able to trash them as in breaking the welds. Had two sets of them and two sets of Touratech. The TT racks have held up a lot better.
Here is a set of their bags with one day of riding. The mounts were trashed.
I am using a set of their mounts right now and they are not quite up to the job in my opinion. These were trashed.
In their defense, we were driving like this.
Had the pucks from Touratech on mine(bike above). No problems except Happy Trails racks broke a few months later and maybe that ride. We had our noses down and doing about 60 plus most of the time. Happy trails looked at them and said, "Yeah, they wore out." Made no offer to replace them, I bought another set just because I didn't want to redrill the boxes for the Touratech ones. Also, the V-Strom Happy Trails ones I saw did not account for the muffler. They both stuck out equal distance. I am able to use the big 41 liter box on the non muffler side and the medium size on the other. That was a deal breaker for me on my V-Strom.
My God, I love Idaho and probably can not go back after this post. I just feel like the buyer needs to know.
Happy Trails, not so much. My son had HT engine guards on his KLR. A couple of tip-overs was all it took to break the welds. HT needs to up their game significantly if they want to be favorably considered in the same breath as EG.
I've had Delkevic before on an NC700X. Good quality and sound pipe, and it came with a DB killer baffle. The problem is they don't make a kit for the V2 yet (+14 DL1000) so I bought one of their generic stainless silencers and went to town on some 2" elbows I have collected over various...
First time I've run my tank dry, now I can't get it running. I have put two gallons of gas in it and cycled the fuel pump over and over. The pump sounds normal, runs for a couple of seconds and then stops. I Unhooked the fuel line from the pump assembly and attached some fuel line. When I...
I just purchased an Innovv K2 camera system and am looking for the best spots to mount the cameras. I was thinking about mounting the front camera just below the tip of the beak and the rear camera to the top of the License Light enclosure. I am concerned that these spots might have too much...
