Could anyone tell me what options are out there for side boxes froa 1999 VFR?
BMW K1200 bags fit. Less expensive than Honda bags, more practical than Beetle Bags. Check my photo gallery.
Do you use BMW brackets to mount them?
I tried that, then went with GIVI brackets. The BMW bags fit on GIVI brackets with a small adapter plate (one each side) PM me your email and I'll send you pictures if you like.
Which Givi brackets did you use?
Heretic....man, your avatar freaks me out!
I have Givi bags btw on my 5th gen. Check my photo gallery for pics.
Do you have a pic from the back?
At home I do, but not at work. See if I can find it later. Till then, this is the best I got.
I'm thinking of getting the Givi E21's with the wingrack mounts - I have stock exhaust - will the cases fit okay - or will the one on the exhaust side have to be higher (which look really bad). I only want side cases - don't want to top one....
Edit - saw a pic with the E41's - nope - one on exhaust side has to be mounted higher...and they are way too wide for my liking anyways...so the E21's will have to work...
Anyone know where you can get one of these?
I believe Givi has discontinued them
Question on mounting - if all I want is side cases - why do I need to install the top case hardware???
From Givi's site:
"To install the PL system, you must absolutely have the Monorack. You cannot install the PL system without the Monorack."
I've got Corbin Beetle Bags on my '98. Very expensive new, so only buy them used at half retail or less. And you can get them in your VFR's color. Not as accessible as bags that open fully at the top, but they are totally integrated with the fairings and kind of disappear to the eye. I've used them on trips and like them very much.
