Guys HEELLLPPPP.
:confused:
Why is everything that is made to accommodate soft luggage so damn expensive? Adventure Tech doesn't make their top rack anymore. Does anyone have some links to a not crazy expensive rear top rack? 200 Cad tops.

XOXO

I run a top case, so I'm not sure what top rack would meet your needs. Do you have links to some options out there?
SwMotech Adventure Rack 199.95+tax+Shipping
Sw Motech Adventure Rack soft luggage attachment 119.95+tax+Shipping
Precision Motorcycle Racks 179.99+tax+Shipping+import fees
The PMR rack is under $100 here in the US, I think I paid around $107 with shipping. Sorry to see the significant markup for you. It is very good quality and looks good, too.

There is also this one:

https://www.happy-trail.com/find-your-bike/suzuki/v-strom-650-2017/suzuki-vstrom-1000-tail-plate.html

It says 1000 in the description but it also fits the 2017+ 650’s. I bought the PMR because of what I felt was a more useful width.
I like the look of both! PMR is looking like the cheapest usable size right now.I need to mount some fuel cans on the rack with a bag on top sooooo...... :yesnod: Have you ever used rotopax or equivalent on your PMR rack?
Happy trails is clocking in at a whopping $250Cad plus importation fees for the rack and (T3?) plate. :thumbdown:

Oh buddy, do I have some questions for you. That mount for your fuel bottle. Link and size? :D
Bags on your crash bars. Link? :D
Love the look.

The givi top case rack I ordered came with two support braces that run from the frame to the rear of the OEM top rack. This provides a more sturdy platform. I wouldn't put much weight on the OEM top rack without these support braces IMO. Hopefully the solutions you are looking at include those.

Can you provide a link or part # so I know which one you're talking about?


Cheers

The bag is a twenty year old OEM Harley tool bag 🙂. Here is the link to the fuel bottle holder “fuel mule” which I got from Etsy. The matching bottle I got from Amazon. https://www.etsy.com/listing/569843637/big-fuel-mule-for-the-15-liter-primus?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=fuel+mule&ref=sr_gallery-1-1&organic_search_click=1
