When you install the AltRider Luggage Rack for the BMW G 650 GS, you know it will meet your needs. AltRider designed it so whether on or off road, you can take along everything you need for your trip. Made from sturdy 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) black powder coated aluminum and featuring side flanges for extra strength, it’s made to carry your load. The rack is uniquely designed with a variety of cut-outs, so you can easily attach your bags with anything from straps to bungee cords to tie downs.
If you want the option of using a top case, the AltRider Luggage Rack provides an interface for the Givi Monokey systems via the AltRider Givi Monokey Luggage Rack Topcase Mounting Kit (sold separately). Carrying additional fuel or water is made easier, too, because the rack was also designed with a Rotopax interface. Worried about riding two-up? No problem, because we kept the comfort of the pillion in mind when creating this piece.
We believe the strong and versatile AltRider Luggage Rack for the BMW G 650 GS is a good solution for packing smart on your next ride.
Made of 3/16 (4.75mm) anodized aluminum

Great rack -- wouldn't change a thing
I primarily use this rack to mount Rotopax 1.75-gal water and 1.75-gal fuel to my G650GS using the extended Rotopax mounting system. This is a great combination and I couldn't be happier with it. The Rotopax mounts bolted right up to the rack with no modifications and the load is carried between the mount's hard points instead of cantilevered off the back like other racks. It's been through extended rough off-roading with both 1.75-gal containers full with zero issues. I highly recommend this combination.
It is a little cumbersome to get to the rear compartment, but if you follow the instructions it's fine.

I shopped around for a good luggage rack and went with the Altrider for many reasons but what put it over all the rest was the predrilled holes for a RotoPax mount. Nice, right? Aside from that, this rack rocks. It's so light and strong I almost couldn't believe it. Installation was easy and a perfect fit. It looks great. I had to file down the tabs on the 'glovebox' lid a little, but it was no big deal. Glad I got it.

Peter W:You can. It's not as easily accessible anymore of course, but you can get the lid off to release the seat and fit small items in the compartment. The instructions detail how to make a slight modification to the lid (trim off a small piece) that makes it a bit easier. The modification doesn't otherwise affect the fit or function of the lid.
In my opinion, this configuration is superior to others that sit aft of the lid, allowing easier access, because of the way the load is centered over the structural hard points instead of cantilevered off the back. It's worth the trade.Feb 6, 2014
Patrick C:Yes you can with a little jimmying. AltRider instructions say file down part of the tabs that hold the trunk lid in place and they provide a pictorial demonstration on opening and closing the trunk or glove box. You can find these on AltRider's site. It's not the smoothest operation but it's not a pain either. The quality of the rack outweighs the slight nuisance of the trunk. Last week I opened it to take the seat off and I had no issues. Al the other racks have a big hole in the middle. Hope I helped. Feb 6, 2014
Patrick C:Yes you can. Removal of the lid becomes a 4-step process but it's not a big deal. 1) Unlock and lift 2) lock and remove the key so the lid stays open 3) pull to the rear so the tabs are free 4) pull the lid out to the front. I can reach the seat popper pretty easily with big hands. I have to say though, I don't store anything in there anymore.Feb 7, 2014
