    Hi Jock, I'm also the budget type and also looking into making or adapting a pannier rack to fit mine. Just can't justify over £100 for a few bits of scrap metal, and used items are like rocking horse shit.
    Welcome and have fun.

    EBay aside mate, the Arrow Paris-Dakar rep can from Rugged Roads seems to be about the best option cost-wise, £210:

    Even Wemoto can't beat that - their Marving comes in at just over £234:

    I'm sort of presuming that those are both road-legal though, if you're considering new pattern can then a phone call or email to clarify the dB rating would probably be prudent.

    I'm looking for budget panniers and a rack as well, the cheapest panniers I've found, aside from making them yourself are £375
    In contacting the bloke who makes them, I found that touratech do just the hoops for the rack mounting points for around £40 or so. Apparently, these hoops are the hardest part to make.
    Don't know if that helps at all?
    Still seems a bit steep for a bent piece of metal...

    Cheers for all replies I've found some aluminium sheet in garage I may have a laugh and see what boxes I can make from this ! I have an exhaust there but not sure afar it's from !

    Does it matter I'f exhaust is from sports bike or are they all the same ?

    +1 on the RR Arrow Paris-Dakar Replica. I fitted one on my RD07 a few weeks ago and the improvement was immediate. I reckon there were quite a few horses locked up in my stock exhaust. Now they're free!!

    It's a good deal for a new pipe. It looks great and it's fully road legal - if you leave the baffle in. But it sounds much better if you take it out! If the exhaust isn't designed for the bike (and sometimes even when it is) the carbs may need to be re-jetted.

    With the RR heat shield...
