i had a similar problem but i just butchered an old ventura rack and welded a couple of spanners on to make arms for the panniers.

Works great. I normally run with Triumph grab handles then fit this rack when we are going on a trip.





Wow ! That's what i call a proper rack, fit to do the job intended !!

How long does it take to take off again / reinstall?

less than ten minutes. its all held on with the same four bolts that the grab handles are.

Installed the Givi arms and put my existing mount plate on them, pretty solid construction and fits to the frame further back towards the centre of the bike rather than just at the back end where the Renntec rack fitted... just got to get some suitable grommets to cover the last two mount bolts.

That should do the job! Looks neat and tidy. If I didn't have top box phobia I'd be tempted myself  :002:

I am not keen on any luggage if i am not using it so that's why I have Givi which I can clip the box on and off when required. Of course there are other systems available !!!!
I primarily use the box to dump my helmet and gear in if I go somewhere when it will be a nusiance to carry them around.

Love the spanner rack. My husband made me a very similar one for my Harley and was inundated with requests to make and sell them. Your picture bought back lots of happy memories. Yours looks beautifully finished and I bet your wife's thrilled with it  :002:

Thank you for the kind words. Yes I also get asked quite often for custom bits and pieces and I do what I can but not getting much garage time now these days.
