I want to get this Fehling rear luggage rack on my new SCR950.
https://www.google.com/search?rls=c...HXoEAYQQsAR6BAgAEAE&biw=1670&bih=830&dpr=1.15


But I have the OEM saddlebags installed with their special mount brackets.


Do they work together? or would I have to remove and reconfigure the saddlebag mounts to work with the rear Fehling rack?


I just bought the bike and it came with the OEM saddlebags. I'm loving it so far but I just want a back rack as well. If anyone has experience with that set up please let me know.

If it’s the bags pictured you have, aren’t they using the same hole in the frame (just below the saddle strap) that the Fehling also utilises? I imagine you’d have to fashion something so that your OEM racks stood outboard of the Fehling rack (spacers etc), if you wanted to use both together.......wasn’t @ChopperCharles looking at something similar, once?
Welcome, by the way, new guy.

Thanks for your quick reply and welcoming me. It has been so much fun (first bike) but I have been treating it respectfully because 950 is a lotta power. Yea that picture is of the bags the bike came with. Making a spacer is what I was thinking I would have to do. or somehow mount the Fehling rack on first, washer then saddle bags (even though the saddle bags might end up ****-eyed because they would stick out from that mount). Is there only one mount for the Fehling rack?

You’d have to mount the Fehling rack first, as that sits flush to the bike. It also has mounts that connect to the rear light cluster (for added support), which wouldn’t reach if you were to try and mount the OEM racks first. You wouldn’t be able to do this anyway, as you’d be forcing the Fehling rack struts open a lot wider than they’d want to go. Also, it simply makes more sense to mount your OEM racks outboard of the Fehling, as they are two separate items.

I don’t imagine it’d actually be that difficult to be honest, you’d just need to do some calculations to work out the size of spacer you’d need to sit the OEMs outboard of the Fehling, and then how much longer the bolts would need to be.

Glad you’re enjoying the bike - yeah, it’s going to need some respect if it’s your first bike.
