Installation help with H&B rack
I have purchased a set of Hepco & Becker panier racks for my old xt and am having difficulty fitting it. The instructions are in german only, contain no photos and according to my German friend I enlisted to translate "are crap".
The bike is a North American model 1986 standard xt600 (not Tenere). I believe this bike is the equivelant of a 1983-85 model in europe. the bike is configured with : the rear drum, kick only, oil tank under left rear side panel, airbox under seat.
The racks look like they will all fit up but the kit comes with a huge number of washers, bolts and spacers and other hardware that despite my decent mechanical ability has completely stumped me. According to my german friend the instructions go on about retaining/including the standard luggage rack. My bike has no standard luggage rack.
So. I was hoping some one who has an early xt with Hepco & Becker racks could post up or email me a couple of photos of their bike? Failing that perhaps someone has a link to english instructions? I have tried several translation programs with zero sucess.
Many thanks for your help.
