The Uprising rack is a perfect base for the new KLR. I did have to drill/Dremel some slots in that useless KLR rear plate, but once I did that it mounted up very solid. I’m attaching 20L explorer bags to the side and use bag snakes plus an additional rok strap lengthwise on each side. Extremely solid, more so than any other rackless setup that I’ve used before
I received my Green Chili uprising soft rack kit efficiently and well packaged. The rack fits very nice on my 1984 Xl350r and mounting was performed with ease. The rack fits all my gear without a worry of it falling off. Cannot be happier or recommend it more!
This uprise rack, is by far the best on the market from what I have seen. The highest quality materials. The sewing/stitching is superb. This rack is bomb proof. And with so many attach points the configurations are endless. I have to Thank Adam for helping me get it mounted, I was having a little trouble, so I emailed customer service. I received a reply the same day, and Adam worked it out with me via email and photos. The customer service is above and beyond. And no I was not paid to write this, I am just so happy with Green Chile and there products. And not to mention they are made in the USA Thanks GC
I bought this as an off-road rack solution for my WR450. Unfortunately there weren’t any obvious mounting spots for the rear, so I bought the GCAG mounting brackets to help. No matter how I mounted it though, it would not stay completely secure and always had a little movement. I tested in on road and it performed perfectly. However, when I took it off-road one of the straps either loosened slightly, or an anchor point shifted and the rack and my bag shifted onto my exhaust and melted completely. Sad I only got one use out of it and a bunch of my gear was wrecked.
Lesson learned, make sure you mount it so that it has absolutely no play, otherwise the rough riding will cause too much weight shifting and problems will occur.
Email sent to help you get it worked out.
I have just received a GCAG Uprising Soft Bag Kit, Bag Snake Kit, and a Mondo Strap Kit which I ordered for use on my Africa Twin. While I was waiting for them to arrive I was initially kicking myself for ordering just days before they all went on sale. No more! That disappointment immediately went away when I received and examined the gear. The build quality, the ruggedness, and the attention to detail of GCAG is outstanding! The numerous strapping options that I now have is fantastic. Keep up the great work, GCAG! A shout out to Adventure Rider Radio for making me aware of Green Chili! Hell, now I’m waiting on my second order!
