Trouble with my DR800's Five Stars luggage racks was that the supporting bars that attach racks to passenger's pegs (hope you got the picture; English isn't my native language...
) were too weak / welding wasn't up-to-date so snapped them broke on both sides. Hepco & Becker uses thicker tube (actually twin-tube) and should be more robust.
I have Hepco's engine bars and luggage racks in my 3AJ; fitted w/o any trouble (well a couple of bolts were too short...) and look strong enough for normal use.
Still have also some Five Stars products, though: just bolted on their center stand kit and am very pleased with it (and, like Geoff, I used services of RiderHaus and yes, it took a couple of months to get the package from the ordering date).
