Kawasaki KLR650 OSR (Original Side Racks) for soft luggage.
$99.97
SKU
HTP4-8-3

Happy Trails OSR (original side racks) are   compatible with KLR650 for bikes from 1987-2008 ONLY!!. Please note they are  designed for soft luggage only.

Features:

  • Made of special 1/2" steel tubing

  • Ends concerns with scuffing the rear side panels on your bike

  • Eliminates concerns about luggage melting on exhaust

  • Offers an added measure of confidence in falls of all types

  • OSR Racks can be easily removed with two bolts for air filter and battery maintenance

 

Finish: Black powder coat paint.

Note 1: Original Side Racks do not include a tail rack.

Note 2: If you think you might upgrade to fixed luggage in the future you might consider the Happy Trails  E Model SU Rack  or the Happy Trails A Model SU Rack , suitable for soft and fixed luggage. 

 

The OSR is our Original Side Rack and one of the first products we made for the KLR. In 2009 the dimension between the mounting holes changed and the dimensions have varied considerably with other years. We use what we call a "spud" for the bolt to go through on the OSR  which limits the tolerance between the holes. The SL & SU Racks have a slotted tab that allows for the variance in dimensions but due to the style of construction on the OSR we don't use a slotted tab.

We have had customers buy the OSR for for 2009+ KLR's and report back that they fit. With the known fitment issue we don't list the OSR for those years.

 

We recommend the HTP4-1-2M Happy Trails SL Rack for the later years of the KLR. The SL Racks work on the KLR A Model (87-07) and the KLR E Model (08+)

The SL rack also works much better with latest design of Soft Luggage such as the Happy Trails Sahara Soft Luggage

 

All Happy Trails products are crafted in Idaho

    Question by: Marcus on 2017-02-17 22:32:00

    The Instructions have the bolt lengths. You can source them locally or order them through me for $15.00.

    Question by: Tim on 2016-07-06 19:20:00

    We don't guarantee they will, you are welcome to try them.

  • Will the Happy Trail OSR rack fit a 2013 KLR 650??
    Question by: Richard Rusconi on 2016-01-07 21:04:00

    There is a considerable difference in the hole locations on the E Model KLR. The OSR Rack uses a round spud for mounting and this does not give the sufficent clearance for the difference in the hole locations.

    We recomend the HTP4-1-2M Happy Trails SL Rack for the later years of the KLR. We built the SL with a SLOTTED TAB at the front mount point to allow for the hole variation.

    Here is the the link to the Happy Trails HTP4-1-2M SL Rack

    The SL rack also works much better with latest design of Soft Luggage such as the Happy Trails Mojave Soft Luggage

    The Happy Trails SL Rack als works very well with Wolfaman and Ortlieb Soft Luggage.
