I have the PMB rack and love it. Its all cut out of solid billet aluminum and is strong and high quality. I don't duel sport but it's nice on long rides.

I really like mine. It's sturdy and looks great. But I have to admit that I have not really carried a load on it yet.

I really like the PMB racks like you guys have.. had two on my old XRs. They are really tough. Be careful with your subframe though.. The rack can take loads of weight, but not the subframe.

the PMB rack on my old XR650L... rode through AK with my wife 2up.. when I got home my subframe was cracked (luckily it was steel so I welded it back up and gusseted it)

I can't decide if I want the Cycleracks one or the PMB.. the cycleracks looks ugly but it takes the stress off the subframe for the larger loads. the PMB is super light and is better for lighter loads. HMMM

What I'm thinking is Cycle Racks with Rotopax 1 gallon on each side for a total of 4 gallons gasoline capacity. Got a Great Basin Giant Loop Bag to place in front of the rack for Saddlebag. I'm about to take delivery of a 2012 WR450.

I have the PMB rack also and love it... great rack. only downside is the price. not cheap!


if you only need some light carrying capability and need a better price, this one doesn't look too
bad for only $79:

The frame on the 2012 is different by less than an inch for two mounting points. I'm contacting cycle racks to work something out.

Giant Loop has some saddlebags that are a great option too.
