Happy Trails SU Side Rack
Kawasaki KLR650E 2008+

SKU HTP4-8-1.1

The SU (Structurally Unique) Rack is designed for use with soft or fixed luggage of any type. Perfect for mounting aluminum panniers, GIVI luggage, Pelican cases or any luggage you choose.

The KLRE SU rack has our new Point1 pressed insert design. This adds to the ease and functionality you’ve come to expect from our pannier systems. Details HERE.

Features:

  • Exclusive and thoroughly tested 4th generation side racks
  • Four point mounting system (includes mounting hardware)
  • Strong 5/8" round tubing for the arms and 3/4" square tubing for SU loop
  • Bumper support between the two side racks adds strength, stability and protection
  • Racks improve the structural integrity of the rear sub-frame adding protection for the bike in case of tipovers.
  • Note: SU kit does not include a tail rack.

    Bike specific rack means no compromise as with universal type racks. Each and every rack is fabricated by our expert craftsmen to take advantage of the existing structural points and design of the individual bike.

    Unmatched strength. No one makes a stronger rack and no one offers a better warranty. Our racks are built to take it ... anywhere ... anytime ... in any conditions. True adventure touring racks. When your trip depends on it accept no substitute.

    Fitting updates: As you know Kawasaki made significant changes to the KLR650 in 2008. Beginning with the 2009 model some factory fresh bikes push the close tolerances inherent in all Happy Trails quality products. In order to resolve fitment issues stemming from bike-to-bike variances we have changed to a slotted front mount. All fitment issues have been resolved with this slight change. (Click to see the differences between the original and updated design). On the 2009 KLR650 the exhaust side rack is 1” further out from center. We consider this symmetrical as it is not enough to effect appearance and handling.

    All Happy Trails products are designed and crafted in Boise, Idaho
