Hey all,

I'm looking to add a rear rack to my 01 XR650L.

Found this one on ebay:

Anyone tried/have one of these?

Open to alternate suggestions.

Thanks, JT

the XR650L subframe, under the rear fender, is too weak to support much weight ... luggage racks generally overload and bend the crap out of the subframe ... I think it is better to throw saddlebags over the seat, to support the weight ... I have tinkered with the idea of running a reinforcing strut up from the rear footpeg mounts, to support a rack, but I haven't fabricated anything yet ... :applause:

Happy Trails makes very good racks. Might want to take a look at their stuff. The tail rack isn't as long as the one on ebay, and it's more money, but their products are very well made.
