waffl Posted June 7, 2021 Share Posted June 7, 2021 Hi all, I just recently bought a PLO2145MK rack to be able to mount the GRT709 CANYON soft luggage I owned from a previous bike on my Tenere Rally Edition. Upon installing, I noticed the rack sits quite tight against the exhaust. This didn't seem too concerning until I tried to install the plates to mount the luggage which requires multiple back braces to secure. There definitely is not enough room to mount this plate, although GIVI lists all as compatible on their website. The bottom left brace would be completely impossible to install and the nut to secure the bottom right plate would rub against the exhaust which would of course be terrible after any amount of riding. I have a few questions: Is there a difference in how the exhaust sits between the Rally edition and regular? As a standard slip on I imagined the dimensions were the same? Does anyone happen to have this rack/system and know how to work around this? As the OEM racks are made by GIVI as well it's a bit surprising that the fit seems off. Does anyone with the rally edition and OEM racks have this very tight space between the exhaust and the rack - where the rubber foot is pressed quite tightly against the exhaust? Thanks in advance, I was quite disheartened to not be able to use my luggage this weekend and am concerned it may never be a possibility at all.
