The Perun rack extension was what I needed to add some soft rackless soft bags to my 2018 KTM 690. I knew I should have purchased this with the standard Perun base in the past and would recommend adding this to your purchase if considering the Perun Rack. I must add a note that this rack does leave room for the North American signals making a perfect fit. If I would explore any improvements to this, it would be coming up with some quick detachment system. It's a functional rack but it sure breaks up the pretty lines of the bike.
