You ask: Why do I need this. Good question - the answer is pretty simple. After riding for more than half an hour (pick a time here...) and with the engine off, carefully, place your ungloved hand between the muffer and the side bag and feel the temperature of the bag (careful!). Abnormally hot, right? Now, look in the bag - anything melted? How about the same side turn signal or reflectors - they ok? That's why.
Add a pair or more of these luggage mounts - simple install, just replace the existing hardware with these mounts. OH - I suggest replacing one at a time to hold rack alignment.
Add a shelf to hold those "extra parts" needed to get on down the road - as stated, these are model year specific and are available with or without shown equipment holes.
This is the Excel Swivel Mount - it mounts on a GS crossbar. Included is a standard mounting plate & hardware. Other mounting options are available for RT's and other motorcycles. $115 USD
Above is the Excel Locking Zumo Mount - this attaches to the Excel Swivel as shown in the pictures with the Garmin. Hardware and Torx security wrench are included. $52 USD
Above pics show the Swivel and Locking plate together with a Garmin 665 & mount. Pic on right is showing the locking design feature (with Torx security screw). The mount swivels left and right as well as tilts back and forth for viewing improvements.
Excel O-Ring Grip Kit. These are UV Stable and work well with Heated grips - these are not the same O-rings found at your local hardware store. Used to overlay worn grip rubbers (also, various mfg's reduced the grip diameter - riders say the slight grip size change is easier on the palm and wrist). It may look like .... really?, but, they work. $20 USD for both L & R grips
Excel R1200GS/GSA Sidestand bumper.
This is a rare item - inserts into the lower frame to change the sound of putting the sidestand up (CLANG!) to a reasonable 5am departure sound of "thump". This is model year specific and installs with "lightly inserting" the bumper in the frame and securing with the lock screw. $22 USD
