2015+ 650 LT rear luggage protectors/bars

Found these on Ebay and apparently they fit our V650 gen 3's. ......emailed Trex racing for confirmation.

Can't imagine that the mount points, alignment, and contour of the luggage would be the same. Hope it works out for you

Let us know what T Rex says, the ebay site does say that it fits the '15 Versys. I know I would be interested in this.

Me too. The thing is, for me as a short dude, the more weight I add to the bike, the less angle of lateral incline I have to keep my bike from falling sideways on an incline! I already had a nasty experience when I installed my T-Rex engine guards. The added weight confused me and I almost dropped the bike sideways while on an inclined surface. So adding more bars will make this worse on such a tall bike. Still, I still think it is a nice farkle to add.

Don't plan, just ride

Reply from Trex racing stating they are NOT compatible. I advised them of their Ebay item showing it was. So no rear luggage protectors yet.

I saw those last week and contemplated picking them up. Trex really needs to release their revised engine guard so I can install both at the same time

I have the T-Rex luggage guards. Got them last fall. They weren't on the website yet, I called and asked if they offered them. T-Rex said yes and I ordered a set over the phone. Attached are some pictures of my '16 V 650 I have. Let me know if you guys want any more!

Any problems when you carry a passenger?

No, but my wife gets upset when our 19 year neighbor daughter comes over and wants to tour the neighborhood.... Not sure about the luggage protectors. I'll have to wait for an adult who has those to weigh in...

None that I can think of. The luggage guards don't really seem to interfere with the passenger's foot or back if the calf. My pillions usually have their heel touching the saddlebag. Maybe if I had a passenger with larger feet, I could see interference with them wanting to move their foot back on the peg.

I'm a size 11 and not a small dude and after installing them I had room to move around. They do take up a little space but not much.

For those that have them are they "tip over bars" or "slide bars"?

Mine suck. The frame clamp hardware is designed for the clamps to be outside the protectors but the distance between the protectors forced me to put them on the inside so some of the bolts are backwards and look like crap. When I contacted T-Rex, their response was to send them pictures to fix it for future buyers. I cannot recommend this outfit to anyone.

I'd like to get the T-Rex guards but I notice they wrap around and bolt at the passenger pegs. I just installed the Motowerk lowering foot peg blocks ($80.00) for my wife and it looks like they would be in the way. Does any other company make rear guards?
