Warning: Please consult your owner's manual for manufacturer's recommendations on weight restrictions for both the tail rack and overall gross vehicle weight.

HT Givi Hardware Kit: The Z255 adapter plate does not come with hardware. Add this inexpensive Happy Trails kit that contains everything you need for installation. See Contents.

The DR650 Tail Plate System is the perfect complement to your SU or Pannier Kit purchase. It features:


  • 100% aluminum
  • Numerous tie down points
  • Sturdy construction yet light weight
  • Wing-plate style eliminates the need for an underlying tubular rack

Strap on a duffel, mount a Happy Trails top box or attach your GIVI Monokey Topcase with the adapter plate available below.

Size: 16.25" wide x 12.25" deep
Color: Matte Black powder coat only (Silver Vein powder coat pictured and no longer available).

Fitment note: This kit requires 4 holes to be drilled by the customer. This is because riders have different ideas about how to position the top plate relative to it's intended use.

Tail plate is shown with SU side racks, available separately.

Mounting Tip from Brendan: Loosened everything up as suggested, so the side plates had room to move, bolted everything up, and it works just fine, as described. Didn't even need to shift the brackets.

All Happy Trails products are crafted in Boise, Idaho

  • Is this system compatible with the OSR racks? I'm considering using my GIVI Monokey topcase with my Ortlieb soft sidebags. Thanks.
    Question by: Shawn Wells on 2017-01-26 21:28:00

    The OSR racks will be spaced out 15/16" at the back from how they are mounted now, they will work together.
