Metal Mule pannier rack for XT600Z 3AJ
Well, I have my heart set on a pair of Metal Mule panniers for my XT600Z (3AJ 1990), however I called Metal Mule to ask them if they could supply me a rack that would fit on the 3AJ model. I was rather disappointed by their response. They basically told me that I would have to fabricate a rack myself. They were not the least bit interested in fabricating a rack for me especially.
You would think that charging almost £1300 for a aluminium pannier luggage system, they would at least be keen to help you get them to fit on your bike by custom making a rack for you. I don't mind spending the money, but unfortunately I cannot get a Metal Mule rack to fit my 3AJ for love or money. Metal Mule were not any help and basically told me that they had absolutely no interest in making a rack especially for me, and that perhaps I should try another supplier. Do you think perhaps all their success has gone to their heads?
Any suggestions? I cannot find any hard luggage system that will fit my 3AJ.
