    Givi wingrack2

    After removing the rear handles to install the rack, I have noticed that the rack braces are too low to be used as handles. The bags, E41, don't have any handles, so there is nowhere to get a proper grip. I thought about putting spacers under the brace at the bolt, but that would raise the support off of the tube. Is there a better way to remedy this, besides removing the rack?

    you dont need any stinking handles!
    Or buy they E360's the have handles.
    and put some non slip lining on the passenger seat and that stops the whole moving around for your passanger! Works great for me and my gal!

    I learned a long time ago, that it's not about what they need, but more about what they want. The non-slip does help, but she wants something to grab. I put a 1/4" spacer in there for now, but will have to make a bushing for the support on the tube, before I can load the bags up.
