XR400 - touring subframe/pannier rack?
Hi everyone - my friend and I have just got back from Morocco - her on a KTM400 and me on my XR400 (using a support Land Rover to carry our kit like the pansies we are), but I am looking to return in the new year with the XR and travel much lighter/independently.
I'll still be trailering the bike to mid Morocco, but then want the flexibility to travel off for a week or two with a small tent and kit/spares etc., and ideally would like to fit a couple of panniers... I already have a pair of canvas throw overs, but was wondering if anyone produces a stronger rear subframe and rack/pannier mount kit to fit Metal Mule or similar cases?
I'm presuming a stronger (or at least additonally braced) rear subframe would be required as the load range for the XR is only 100Kg in total (being an enduro, rather than touring bike), and I weigh close to 70Kg myself...
I really would like to use my existing XR400 from a cost point of view - buying a dedicated bike (F650 or KTM 640 Adventure for example) would take all of my budget for the trip otherwise...
Many thanks in advance,
