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

The SL (Soft Luggage) Rack is designed for use with soft luggage of any type. In particular it will accommodate either the Happy Trails Mojave Soft Luggage (utilizing our tried and tested aluminum plate and puck mounting system), the waterproof Ortlieb QLR (Quick Release System), or the Wolfman Expedition Dry Bag series.


  • Exclusive and thoroughly tested 4th generation side racks
  • Two point mounting system (includes mounting hardware)
  • Strong 5/8" round tubing for the arms and SL mounting  loop
  • Racks improve the structural integrity of the rear sub-frame adding protection for the bike in case of a tip over.

  • 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. Unmatched strength. No one makes a stronger soft luggage rack and no one offers a better warranty. Happy Trails racks are true adventure touring racks. When your trip depends on it accept no substitute.

    Finish: Black powder coat paint only

    All Happy Trails products are crafted in Boise, Idaho.

    • What are the dimensions of the SL loops top to bottom and side to side? I have some bmw hard bags that fit similar loops and am wondering if I could use these for soft and my existing hard luggage.
      Question by: Blake on 2016-01-26 02:54:00

      The SL inner loop is 11" Wide x 6 5/8" Tall, but the SL racks are not designed to support hard bags, they are only meant to hold soft and light weight bags.  Mounting hard bags on these could result in cracking or breaking of the mount points.  For hard bags you should be running the SU rack.

    • Do the Happy Trails SL side racks extend out an equal distance from the center line of the motorcycle? In most cases the racks sold extend farther on the right side to clear the exhaust. If they are not equal do you have a product that would meet the requirement?2013 DR650 Suzuki

      The HTP7-4-2 SL Racks for the Dr650SE are not symmetrical. There is a difference of 2".

      The Happy Trails SU Side Racks Suzuki DR650 SKU: HTP7-4-1.1B   are a symmetrical design.
