Side utility rack for Gen 2

I recently purchased a new KLR 650 and am in process of putting needed gear on it. Just installed a new SW Motech center stand. Now looking for a set of side utility racks that I can drape soft pannier bags over. I did a search for said item and found an exchange of messages from May 2016, but it appeared to deal mostly with rear racks for Gen 1.

I have found a rack for Gen 2 advertised on KLR650.com for a reasonable price. Does anyone have experience with these?

FWIW, mine will mostly be an on-road machine. Only light off-road, so I don't need the beefiest equipment on the market.

Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks. I'll look into them. The others that I was looking at are not expensive -- only $99. So either way, I get what I want for comparatively little money.
