The VSM stainless steel pannier support was designed to be slim and can be left on the DR when no luggage is fitted, which allows safer trail riding as there are no tubes etc... poking out to catch your legs in those situations where paddling or falling off occurs. The stainless steel support is pretty strong but we suggest maximum of 8kgs per side in saddle bags, the supports fit on with or without a B&B rack.
Due to the VSM supports being the same width as the DR’s side plates they do not provide any protection for the side plastic side plates and so your saddle bags etc can scuff the side plates, usually not really a problem on a real adventure bike, but keep it in mind.
Custom made from 4mm stainless steel. Designed for smaller trail-type saddlebags.
PLEASE NOTE - IF FITTING PANNIER SUPPORTS TO A DR650 WITH A STANDARD EXHAUST SYSTEM, YOU WILL REQUIRE 14mm SPACERS
