Im considering the purchase of a Ventura Rack system for my 2006 Mono fitted with Zards. Looking at my bike and the photos on the Ventura site it looks like a tight fit. Anyone with any experience?

I obviously do not have a 2006 Mono with Zards, so my reply may not have value.

That said, I installed a Ventura setup on my 2007 GT1000 that is compatible with the Ducati panniers and related mounting rack. I have attached pictures here so you could view how it all fits together.

Apologies if I'm way off, but I figured it couldn't hurt to show. I have a large pack and the sport pack, which can be used separately or in tandem.

Thanks for the reply Telekon. Your first photo showing the cross piece was helpful. Do you know what the diameter of it is? How far below the seat it is? I have limited clearance between the seat and the top pipe.

Apologies for my delayed reply -- I've been traveling.

My bikes are currently "bundled up" for the Minnesota winter, but I'll look into it this weekend and see if I can answer your questions.

Hopefully these pictures help answer your questions.

The cross piece is approximately 1/2" in diameter, and on my bike the upper-most part is 3/8" from the outer/lower edges of the fender.

Feel free to PM me with any other questions, or for insight on the Ventura system.

Update

The Ventura Rack does fit. Thanks to the Ventura people who promised I could return it if it didn't fit. In addition I also have the Palatov tail tidy. It works with that also.

Just thought I'd post for future searchers.

Awesome setup - I had a Ventura setup on my monster - it was ugly as sin, but it turned the anemic bike into a psuedo-tourer
