Adventure Spec side rack question

Recommended Posts

Can someone with an AS side rack take a pic with a yard stick (or Meter stick) or any straight edge, along the rack on the exhaust side? Holding the edge flat on the rack.

I'm trying to see if it will hit the exhaust. 

I'm looking to mount my mosko panniers and want to check if the wedge will hit the muffler or not. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Is this what you’re looking for?

exactly. Dang. Looks like I may have to go with the tucked in high exhaust. Thanks so much

This might not be a useful observation because not Mosko bags, but I run Giant Loop Siskiyou panniers on the AdvSpec side and tail racks. I added a Giant Loop heat shield to the top of the exhaust and there's no problem with melting the pannier or any other problem. The loaded pannier also protects the exhaust from getting pushed in in an off, as it and the Barkbusters are what contact the ground. Maybe there's a similar setup available for your Mosko's?

I want to like these but I just can’t see how a 35 liter soft bag will make it through a BDR without a hole getting burned through it.  Seems the bottom of a loaded bag would surely rest on the muffler at some point.  
 

please correct me with some experience to the contrary cuz I want these.

Last summer I rode with my Siskiyou panniers on for about 6000 km total, with a mix of gravel and paved highways, active and deactivated forest service roads and a few places I probably shouldn't have been on. The panniers just touch the Giant Loop Hot Springs heat shields so there's no contact with the muffler itself. No contact, no damage. The Siskiyou's came with two shields but I only needed to use one of them.

We solved this problem long ago with our now much-copied Hot Springs Heat Shield!

Can you post a pic of your GL Siskiyou setup on the AS racks? I’m thinking about that option...

@Atomizer, the bike's in storage for winter and the racks are off it, but here are a few pics from trips last summer. Let me know if you want different photos showing any specific details and I could throw the racks and bags back on the bike this weekend.

BTW, not shown in the photos but  I used a GL Revelstoke snowmobile bag as a top bag.
