SW Motech seat plate & KTM side cases

Post by Aussie Dave » Tue Aug 06, 2019 7:25 am

Cheers all......

Had an idea yesterday (i know, brain works very slowly...... :roll: ).....

So now I can fit my KTM cases easily without removing my SWM metal seat plate...... all I used was a hack saw and some cheap black aerosol paint.......

So now I can use my 30Ltr KTM cases while keeping the SWM plate in place for easy leg clearance (it is flush with the body work vs the taller passenger seat pad).

Not a big advance in technology.... just one small step for a man..... :lol:

PS When I want the 40Ltr Givi's I just attach the SWM side racks......
