Mods for fitting 2007 pannier rack to 2008?

Haven't been able to find anything on modifying a 2007 side pannier rack to fit a 2008 KLR650. Is there such a thing or do I need to go with 2008 rigging? Any help would be appreciated.

Modifying means doing it yourself IMO. I just finished fabbing up racks for my givi bags to go on my KLR. Yes I know, I have the tools and no how.

Another recent full thread on the topic.

There is another inmate having the same issues but these are easily solved. Tusk is about the least expensive out there.

Good luck. FWIW, I have been considering making up a few sets of my racks and selling them to inmates. Guess I would have to see what interest out there.

Modifying something is going to probably be more trouble than it's worth. Seeing as you are in Canada I think your best bet is to get somethng from DirtBaggs. They are in Calgary.
