The Quick-Lock EVO carrier is next generation of luggage carrier by SW-MOTECH. Same, great Quick-Lock design, with a more robust, tubular steel rack that has an even more narrow profile than the original sidecarrier! The racks can be removed from the bike in less than 30 seconds without special tools by opening 4 quick-release fasteners on each side. These black, powder-coated, tubular steel racks are compatible with luggage cases from GIVI (Monokey system), TraX ALU-BOX, Pelican, Micatech V2, Kappa, Shad, Hepco-Becker, Krauser, and more. Luggage-specific adapter kits are sold separately.This sidecarrier may be used alone or with one of these topracks:
Givi E127 toprack for Givi Monokey topcases
SW-MOTECH Alu-Rack toprack for Givi & Hepco-Becker topcases
When the racks are removed, only 4 small mounting tabs remain visible on either side of the bike. These mounting tabs are almost invisible, preserving the original visual appearance and size of your motorcycle. Required luggage-specific adapter kits are sold separately. In addition, optional key locks (sold separately) are available to lock the racks to the bike, with the key unlocking a pair of special quick-release fasteners which secure the racks on each side. The Quick-Lock racks are made of flat steel which presents the narrowest possible lateral profile. Bolt-on installation -- no cutting or welding of motorcycle frame or bodywork is necessary. Racks are designed to work with original equipment manufacturer components -- fender, exhaust, etc. The SW-MOTECH racks are ideal for the occasional weekend tourer who desires a "stealth" look during the week, as well as the weekday commuter who needs an unencumbered machine for spirited weekend fun. Whatever your needs, the SW-MOTECH racks allow maximum flexibility and convenience.
If using toploading sidecases like the SW-MOTECH Zarges boxes or Hepco-Becker Gobi with these sidecarriers, we recommend using a narrow topcase such as the Givi E35N to provide proper opening clearance for the sidecases.
This item fits only the KLR650A, the standard North American model.
This item does not fit the KLR650B Tengai (sold in the U.S. in 1990 only) or the KLR650C, which is sold in Europe.
See the KLR650 FAQ for details on differences among the KLR650A, KLR650B Tengai, and KLR650C
Note: Fastening Kits are not required to mount these sideracks to your motorcycle. The Quick-Lock kits are keyed so you can take them on and off and have them locked when they are on your bike. The Hardbolt Kit is used if you don't want to take your sideracks off at all, as they are 'hard bolted' to your bike.
