Default Dirt racks pannier racks and Tusk panniers fitment tip

I've just installed my new Tusk medium panniers on my 2012 Vstrom 1000 and ran into a slight issue using Happy Trails puck kit to install my panniers. The 8mm x 25mm thumbscrews provided with the HT kit will be too short to fit the dirtracks racks. I have ordered some 8x40mm thumbscrews from China on Ebay to deal with this issue. They are on a slow boat as I type this.

Just a heads up if you are attempting to use the puck kit I had ordered for mounting the Tusk panniers.

It has been quite a while since I bought my racks so I could have misplaced them.
