Default Pelican Case Mount

I should also add.. I mount my Pelican iM2100 case to the rear rack for quick removal.. no holes drilled in the case so I don't have to worry about potential leaking.. As you can see I mount the same case on my WR250R and Versys.. works great!

Was there ever any resolution to whether this rack will work with the Givi side racks on a 2011?

Default Common Question

I get this question a lot (If I am still making the racks). Yes! I plan on making these as long as there are Vs around. Again, here is my phone for anyone with questions. 801-787-9397. Sam

I got mine today and installed it! I must say that it is, most definitely, the best looking Versys rack out there. Now I just have to wait for my Givi plate to come in (on backorder ) so I can put my V46 on it. Thanks, Sam! I can't wait for the side racks to come out.

How come MINE don't look like yours...?

...Oh, because they're older and paint has 'flaked' off...!

Would you like to know how sturdy the rack with bolted on seahorse case is?

During the Sandy debacle my bike went over because a basketball pole skitted it to the side. The seahorse case on the KTMduals rack hit my car. The car had a nice 1 inch long hole in the driver side door. My rack on the other hand was perfectly fine. Talk about sturdy!

Default Nice Rack!

The rack looks great and bolts on way better than pictures do to this message. Apparently I am better with a ratchet than a mouse. Good work Sam!

I added some Happy Trail sideracks to Sam's toprack. Painless installation!

Default Should I be impressed after my design is ripped off?

So you post a picture of your rack after copying my design? Ok, your top plate is slightly different and you used lighter gauge steel and don't have plastic handle covers, but you're copying my design. Not cool!

That is pretty lame not to mention spam.

Looks like almost everything on that site is a low end ripped off version of the real thing.



Look familiar?

Palmer Products have nothing to do with me. I did not even by the rack off them, instead I got it second hand via the UK Versys forum.

As to rip off, the quality of the rack is fine and I don't know who came up with the design first, you or them. Yes they look similar, but there are only so many ways a rack can be fitted and looks.

I agree. If you have a patent then you have a right to be pissed if not oh well.

Here's how I 'modded' my "ktmduals" rack for carrying tent, sleeping bag, etc.
The plethora of holes is to give me lots of options for tying down stuff, and I mount it with carriage bolts. It WILL get a super workout this summer heading North....
