Photos of underside of T7 Mono Seat Rack (In response to message from member CGras)

Hope this helps Charles - There's not a vast amount of space underneath, but there is a handy little rubber strap to tie stuff over with

No Problem Charles.

Bear in mind that the mono seat rack has a "5Kg Max" stamped on the top, but it look to me as if it should take at least three or four times that and probably more.

I probably won't load much more than 5kg onto it anyway. I just want a solid base to put my tailpack and maybe a backpack on.

Moving this out of the tech tip section because it's not a tech tip. Tech tip section is for showing people how to repair, replace or install something step by step.

Has anyone fitted a rotopax mount to the mono seat rack? Is it flat enough to mount, and sturdy enough?

Hi Duncan

The mono seat rack is flat on it's top surface. You'd have to drill through the top surface which is metal and through the plastic underneath that supports it. I would say that it's probably sturdy enough, depending on what you are trying to carry. I've actually fitted a rotopax mount to the inside of my L/H Outback Motortek Pannier Rack, to carry a one US gallon fuel container as per this (Spanish!) U-Tube video -

Regards, Mike

Brilliant stuff...just what I wanted to see as I am contemplating buying one to mount a Wolfman tail pack on, for odds and sods like phone &  keys etc

 

Not a fan of the larger tubular tacks

I have a couple of questions regarding the mono seat rack; about how much room is there for a real world tool kit .  Does it make it harder to remove the front seat?   Thanks

1 gallon Rotopack  full of gas no problem. Yes I had to drill holes. And I wouldn't think nothing of strapping a bag of clothes on top of it.

Enough room for a small toolkit (you'll have to use your own judgement, based on the photo's as to what you can get under there)

The seat rack has to be removed before the front seat locating bolts can be accessed. It comes off in exactly the same way as the standard rear seat

I am curious if anyone has dismantled the rear seat and built a solo rack using the seat release components. I am considering doing this. Just curious. Thanks

By doing that would make a brilliant rear bag/storage attachment, ive strapped a small expandable touratech bag on as fits perfectly.

I'm wondering if that's what the Black Dog Helo Pad does?

 

Now that I know that my wife is comfortable riding on the stock passenger seat for a couple of hours on and off road, I'm motivated to find a way to switch the bike back and forth from a rally seat without a rear rack to a solo seat with a big rear rack for my solo travels.

Yes that’s exactly what I have in mind. I’m gonna give it a try let’s see how it turns out. I can always recover the rear seat if it doesn’t work out. I like the new rack that black dog cycle works has designed but I just can’t afford it right now. Seems like everything cost $200 as far as aftermarket upgrades go!

I'm thinking that a simple plate with slots for fastenings, and a rotopax adapter would make that a very useful solution. If the remainder of the seat rigid enough?

OK here is an update for my homemade mono seat rack. This plate is 3/16 aluminum or just over 4mm thick. I’m not much of a fabricator but I was able to get nice clean cuts using a miter saw and a new blade for cutting aluminum. I simply removed the seat cushion and attached this to it. I will be working on it some more so not quite finished. I’m attaching pictures with my Giant  Loop Klamath tail bag also. Total cost so far is $16 for the aluminum and $60 for the sawblade.

My only concern with the metal plate would be the edges, wouldn't be nice if it ended up on your leg.

 

Might be safer if you can bend the edges over.

Maybe some slots for strapping the bags like on most of the racks? Seems promissing anyway.

Thanks for the thought. This is one of the reasons the rack doesn’t extend past the plastic but right now the edges are raw so I still need to round them slightly. I would love to have the ability to bend the aluminum but I don’t know if heating it up would weaken it and if I can even get a decent bend.
