Just bought a set. Will let ye know what they're like when they land.
Plan is maybe use this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lomo-Dry-Bag ... SwfvtcLOZd ...
...with them.

His crash bars look good. Better design to clear the front wheel travel than the rdmoto ones i have.

I have a funny feeling this is the work of a Polish lad off the capo forum http://www.wilkuj.cba.pl/en/sump-guard.html

Do you think those will fit an 800 I have a very weak aluminium rack on mind and it is cracked on one side from carrying some beer in a top box I attached to it.

Ideally I want to fit some hard panniers and top box to mine so I can go touring and camping on it when its up and running.

I will ask Milosz. Tbh there is not many solutions out there for us for luggage racks so if these are good he will be selling lots I'd imagine. Makes sense for him to do some for the 800. At a guess i doubt they will fit the 800 but Bob/Nug might know.

Graham, your 800 is identical to the 750 so it will fit.

Hey Bob
Is Grahams 800 an 89? Or is it a case that a 750 luggage rack will fit any big?

Cheers thats good to know it will fit mine, I think I need to get a stock rack as well to replace the aluminium one I have that is broken. A working engine is my first priority at the minute though ;)

I just dropped into this conversation, but would the 750 rack fit and 800? (Mine is a ‘97)

Also, I like the sumpguard the guy did for the Caponord. Does he do one for the 800?

The early luggage rack fits the 88 and 89 750 and the 1990 800. The 91-97 luggage rack is not compatible.

Any interest in one for youself Bob or do i remember you having a 5 star rack? Hows about you Nug? Be handy for your trips.
Have you had a look at the design and tube diameters, I'd appreciate your thoughts lads.
I'm shying away from ally panniers, those lomo bags are fool proof and deliver for decent coin and dont look wanky.

From speaking to Milosz he doesn't have any data from later 800 shape dr's. Only took molds from his mates 750.
From my perspective having somone making decent affordable aftermarket kit for us is a winner..
