You’ve all asked who makes the best pannier racks, and we finally have that answer for you. It’s Outback Motortek.
Their racks are beautifully engineered, super rugged, and installation is a breeze. Constructed of mild steel, they bend rather than crack during a crash. In the unlikely event that you do manage to break one, it’s easy to find a shop that can weld mild steel – no matter where in the world you go down.
Mosko’s Outback Motortek racks come finished in long-lasting black powder coat, and the best part is that they’re fully compatible with our Backcountry and Scout panniers.
I mounted these racks on my Tenere 700 to use with the Backcountry 35 bags. Installation was fairly easy, but could have been a little better. The welds on these racks are not terrible, but they aren't top notch either. I could hear a piece of slag rolling around inside one of the tubes and one of the welds has a tiny hole in it. Eventually water will surely work it's way inside and slowly rust the rack. Also, because of the location of the exhaust on the Tenere 700, the right side rack has to stick out quite far, and they decided to match that gap on the left side just to keep things even. The result is a surprisingly wide set of racks on what was originally a fairly slim bike. I will continue using this setup until I can afford to try out the reckless 80. On a side note, I have been using the Backcountry bags for two years now on my dr650 with a procycle rack and I could not be happier with them. Also, procycle did a real good job designing that rack to keep the bike very slim even with big bags mounted.
Mosko Scout panniers are super durable, well built, and thoughtfully designed. I have these on the outback motortek side racks, which all works perfectly.
How can I buy a combo of 35L and 25L Backcountry and panniers rack for KTM 1290 adventure R 2020 ?
Good fit, good quality.
I got the gen 1 backcountry 35L bags and the racks for my 2006 GS. All fits great! Bags are damn near bullet proof. Racks went on fairly easily. Fitment required a bit of finagling and a few washers for spacers, but are solid and secure.
Bags are a solid five star. Racks more like a low 3 star. Combined I'll give 4 stars. For the price of the racks, I feel like they should fit with zero issues. what should take about 30 minutes to mount, took over an hour of fiddling and a trip to the hardware store.
Now Im headed back into the Uintas!!!
