*NOTE: The HP special edition 1250 comes stock with an Akropovic exhaust, which will interfere with two of our mounting pucks when using this rack. Some larger aftermarket exhausts may also be problematic. However, this rack is fully compatible with the standard R1250 GS/GSA exhaust + Mosko panniers.
Pannier Rack - BMW
The Outback Motortrek racks are good value and quality, and fit well. A minor design fault is that if the tabs that bolt to the bike were 5mm longer, and the arms on the racks 5mm shorter, there would be no need to use the shorter bolts to avoid touching bike frame. The short bolts are difficult to start with the washer in place. The bolts themselves are too soft - I took the corners off the bolt head with little pressure. I use very good quality sockets. Difficult to understand why such poor quality bolts were used - I replaced them, with no further issue.
The product was available, cheaper than the manufacturers equivalent and the timing on delivery was actually remarkable given the state of global supply chains. the product was exactly as stated and with the QR codes to install a piece of cake to install. Will definitely use again - webpage saved as a favourite, Cheers Andrew, Australia.
Mounted on my 2016 GS it had rough 2 weeks of off-roading carrying the luggage in hard conditions. And its bombproof ;) really good work! Mounting was a little tricky at the exhaust-side but once done everything is fine!
Thanks for your 5 stars! :-)
