The new HTP Elite Tail Plate System for 1987-2018 KLRs was designed to reduce weight while increasing strength by replacing the heavy cast metal OEM tail rack with lightweight yet strong aluminum plates. This system is designed to run independently or integrate with our SU and SL racks.

Tim Sez: This tail plate was born from customers who have broken their cast OEM rack, leaving them potentially stranded in the back country. Believe me because it happened to me and that is why we designed this system.

Included: T2 Top Plate Measures 17 1/2" wide x 13" front to back, 2 side plates, 2 turn signal relo tabs, bolt kit, and installation instructions

Color: Matte Black Powder Coat

  • My original rack is bent and I've got Tusk luggage racks. I see the holes where the turn signals would go, but wanted to verify, would this work with the Tusk rack also?

    The instuctions give a detailed installation, you will need some different spacers and bolts but it will work just fine.
