Can any T7 owners with the AS Rear Rack fitted let us here at Rally Raid know the thickness (length) of the front spacer tubes (welded to rack) and the thickness (length) of the rear spacer tube plus the thickness of the metal mounting tab that is on the rack.

Front mount is 50mm wide, back spacers are 30mm and 10mm plate used on the rear mount.

EDIT , I think 13mm spacers are used at the front end.  

Edit, 10mm spacers at the front, I mixed up the gear  I had removed for B&B rack, Goldentaco is probably correct 👍

Would it be possible to fit the AS Rear Rack without the 10mm Spacer & a 20mm rear spacer,instead of the 30mm, at the rear, or would the tubing touch the bodywork? It's because our spacers are 50mm front & rear?

I don't think that would be advisable, that's the total of 20mm front and back that the rack has to "compress" . At the very  least the rear welds on the mounting bracket would be totally stressed if you could wind the mounting bolts in far enough before  inevitable breaking.

OK, I will look into whether we can move our Soft Luggage Racks out by 10mm per side to fit on the outside of the AS Rear Rack, and using a 20mm spacer at the rear mount to take up the difference

I think fitting to the outside would be advisable. The rear rack width between the bars is already narrow. If I sit on the pilion my butt touches the rails with the rally seat but it’s not uncomfortable. Any narrowing of the sides would make the pillion area uncomfortable to most passengers. 
 

And as Louis stated you’d be compressing the whole assy. The front attachment would fit in the recess in the bodywork but the rear is not completely round. It’s more of a tombstone shape. A tab with a half round tip for lack of a better word.

Great to see you guys are willing to adapt your racks for compatibility with competitors. My thoughts regarding side racks worth buying are the Adventurespec or your Rally Raid racks. Everything else is simply too wide for  the T7 wonderful narrow rear end.
