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 shown in the photos.
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 Denali 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.
Tim says: I recommend the Clif-Cut for this bike because of the narrower profile. Note that this advantage puts the panniers closer to the top plate, so there is 3" less width for top plate cargo.
Top Box Fitment Note: The 33 and 58 Liter Happy Trail Top Boxes will work with Denali standard panniers and all other panniers offered for the V-Strom 650. They do not work with Denali clif-cut panniers. (The clif-cut is a 1.5" exhaust cut-out option available for V-Strom Denali panniers).
