Need suggestions with soft bags, pannier racks and custom exhaust

Recommended Posts

So I have this nice fancy Yoshimira R-77 pipe on my KTM 1190 R and so far I am having no luck putting pannier racks and bags on it.  

I got the wolfman luggage on black friday to save a few dollars.  I never expected finding pannier racks would be so hard.  

I am on my second set of racks.  First one's I tried were Tusk.  I returned them with no problem.  The cross bar needed to mount right through the exhaust.  

My second set is now the the Hepco & Becker.  They install just fine, but my wolfman bag sits on the exhaust.  

I am beginning to think i need to sell my exhaust to get bags on this bike.  Any suggestions??

Hi there Jason, Your setup looks perfectly fine. I suggest to simply install a Giant Loop or generic clamp on heat shield. 

i saw the giant loop heat shield, do you know if it will go on with hose clamps?  The one that comes with it will not go around this pipe.

Oh I see. You got a heat shield already with the bags. Just go to the hardware store and get a larger set of hose clamps. Honestly, the way you have it configured is really nice. Just a matter of positioning the heat shield.
