Great Value! Happy Trails SL Rack KLR650 (all years)

SKU HTP4-1-2M.
The new Happy Trails SL Rack is a universal soft luggage solution for all model KLR650s. This low-cost alternative works on both A and E model KLRs at a great low price. No need to relocate the rear turn signals which often interfere with the lid opening on aluminum panniers, since the rack is intended for soft luggage only. This makes it easier to install and cuts installation time.

We created this rack for our Mojave Soft Luggage and it is also compatible with the Wolfman and Ortlieb Soft Bags (also sold by Happy Trails) as well as most other soft luggage options.

If you want to carry heavier loads or the added protection of a hard pannier, we recommend our SU rack. The SU rack is designed to handle the additional weight by offering an increased number of bike mounting points and a stronger square tube mounting platform.


  • Exclusive and thoroughly tested 4th generation side racks

  • Two point mounting system (includes mounting hardware)

  • Strong 5/8" round DOM steel tubing for the arms and Happy Trails exclusive SL mounting loop

  • Racks improve the structural integrity of the rear sub-frame adding protection for the bike in case of a tip over

  • Works on all KLR650s from 1987- present


  • Right and Left SL Racks

  • Installation Bolt Kit

  • Instructions

Color: Black Powder Coat
Weight: 4.7 lbs.

All Happy Trails products are crafted in Idaho


Wondering about the difference between our SU and SL racks? See a comparison on the Happy-Trail WIKI.

KIT-IT! Pair your new SL racks with a pair of Happy Trails Mojave side bags. Easy-on, easy-off with waterproof lift-out liner. The Mojave bags fit these racks like a glove. Fitment note: the Mojave bags are pre-fitted for our SU racks (the majority of our kit sales) and in some cases the holes drilled through the backer plates for the bags may need to be slightly enlarged for the SL fitment.
