Nice DRZ400 rack but you need to know.....
I really like this rack - really solid design and nicely made. BUT - for the DRZ400 you should know that for installation, this will mount at the seat mounting bolts. You will be able to remove the seat, but you will have to completely remove the rack to remove the side covers.

Really Good Rack For the money
My KTM OEM tail rack was pretty useless for mounting anything larger than a loaf of bread. The Tusk replacement rack is well made, and was a very easy install. A lot of holes makes for very versatile mounting arrangements. Best of all, the price was much less than all the competitors that I looked at. I don't think you would be disappointed with this purchase.

Good Product but Incomplete Instructions
A heavy duty, quality product. But the installation instructions for my Husky 701 Enduro were incomplete. The issue I had was with the 2 front mounting brackets which have different ends. No where in the written instructions or the poor photos did it say or show which end went which way. neither way seems to line up properly and I'm still not sure I have it right.

rack for my DR650
Not only is this rack good looking---I think it's going to be bullet proof. Plenty of holes to attach tie-downs and strong enough for anything you want to carry.

Tusk rear rack is good enought.
The Only negative thing that I've got to say is that the bolts that comes with the rear tusk rack are sheep. The one that bolt the seat just broke while i've wranched it. I still happy with the product. It's well made and it comes very handy when you carry some luggages/rotopax/bags...

What the doctor ordered!
I installed this rack along with the sub frame support on my xr650 L. Everything fit perfectly, and the rack appears to be very sturdy. If anything overbuilt. No more weak subframe!

Don't use with Mosko Moto Reckless bags
Don't purchase this rack if you intend to use it with Mosko Moto Reckless bags. After just 1000 miles, the plate bent.

A shopper on May 26, 2018

BEST ANSWER: Not sure. I have old Emgo tail trunk and it’s mounting rack installed on my 2015 DR 650. The trunk has its own mounting plate but I was able to attach it to the Tusk rear rack. Took some fidgeting with placement of the Emgo plate getting lined up with attachment spaces on the EMGO plate lined up with spaces on the Tusk rack before I finally got it to fit. YMMV
