Everything you need to mount on your bike is included in our Pannier Kit.
Happy Trails Teton Pannier Kitfor your V-Strom DL650 includes everything you need for a great luggage system. The kit includes:
The DL650 V-Strom 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.
The DL650 SU rack design fits the handy SU inner tool kit/utility shelf carrier.
The carrier allows you to load the inner space of your SU racks with the
can't-leave-behind essentials, while leaving the panniers back at camp.
The SU Rack system is compatible with the stock tail rack, and the Happy-Trail Tail Plate System.
This bike's geometry is perfect for our exclusive Clif-Cut design. The clif-cut is a 1.5" exhaust cut-out used to create a narrow profile. Select the Teton standard if increased volume is the primary goal as opposed to narrow profile. Note: Clif-Cut panniers create a slight interference with the turn signals on this bike. Just move them slightly, as they are flexible.
All Happy Trails products are crafted in Boise, Idaho
Yes all of the Happy Trails Pannies have a Canyon Cut on them. Check out our Blog post Happy Trails Panniers 101
The Teton panniers work excellent with a passenger and are a great fit for a passenger on the V Strom.
The exhaust systems appears to be smailler than the stock. We have not heard of any issues with this system.
