I'm in the market for a rack and top box for my 01 Dakar, however it seems that some racks can't be installed or interfere with the BMW pannier rails.
As I find the panniers very handy for short trips about town, I want to keep them.
The givi/kappa racks seem the cheapest and would give the...
Just a quick update on my rack problem. In the end i decided to risk it and buy the givi topbox rack for the 2003 dakar and it fitted with the OEM BMW panniers! at last i can stop worrying :)

Hello! Just getting ideas together for a long trip next year, and seeing what the options are for panniers.
What kinds of racks would go with the old F650GS which has two pipes? See a few on Ebay but it's not always clear if they'd fit.
Bike's pretty old so will aim for either 2nd hand bmw...
Hi everyone. I'm new to the world of BMW F650's but since my purchase, I'm loving all info out there (like this site). For info my bike is a lovely 2003 F650 GS. Anyways, I've purchased a top box off of ebay and need a rack to fix it to my bike. I've found one or two but they have been...

Does anyone use a Ortlieb Rack Pack? Any good?
I was thinking about getting one to use with 2 x 31L panniers but wasn't sure which size to get. Thought large (49L) would do the trick.

What are my rack options for carrying soft panniers (Andy strapz equiv) and a bag on the top / back. I don't want to pay a fortune i.e. Touratech prices. Will be all quite lightweight.
Anyone selling anything?
I'm a newbie here and couldn't find any existing threads about top boxes. The grey plate that came with the 1999/2001 bike didn't have a top box that came with it.
Can anyone recommend one that fits the original rack, or do I need to screw a new plate onto it? Did a search on...

I'd like to use my Givi monokey topbox on my BMW F650gs 2002. I believe that I need a 639f and an M3 plate.
Can someone enlighten me as to where the rack fits onto the bike?
The rack arms look very simple -has anyone made their own?
or does anyone have these parts they don't need?
i need a rack to go with the panniers i'm currently making. my current favoured options are either a s/h one or making my own. considering the latter, has anyone else done this and what are the most suitable mounting locations on the bike ('05)?
so far i've found the mounts under the little...
I have taken off the Givi Rack and top box, replaced the standard rack.
What method can be used to hold anything on the rack, the bungee straps and a gargo net I have are no good, There are a couple of slots in it, I assume to hold the BMW soft Luggage. Does anyone make suitable straps out...
