XTZ660 - Back Ends!!!
I've had a rack made to take my luggage (touratechs 35 and 42l). The rack is made from the Touratech hoops you can buy. I think this adds strengh to the rear frame as it.
As you can see, this forms a kind of triangle with the rear rack points and the rear pillion foot peg mount.
I guess that to really strenthen it you could add a brace directly between the 2 points...
A word of warning though....
The mounting points that the rear rack use have captive nuts on the back of them.... they are rubbish!!!!
The rear 2 and the front left side have enough room for you to use much longer bolts and to put Nylock nuts on the back of them.
the front right goes into the main subframe and does not have this option to get to the back of it... I have my rack made to this point now so no choices, on reflection I might have used the eaxhaust point just infront of it had I known this at the time..
hope this help.

I'll try anything once, twice if it didn't kill me!
