  1. I apologize if this has been covered, but I'm having difficulty finding answers about the VFR1200 trunk/top case. I ordered the OEM rear carrier hoping that I could install my Givi case, but they do not appear compatible. A few questions, if I may: 1. Is there an adapter plate that would allow install of a givi case on the OEM carrier? 2. Regarding the OEM trunk/top case, how does this mount to the carrier? I do not have an OEM top case to look at, and I'm having trouble picturing how it attaches. Is an adapter plate of some kind required here as well? (Photos of rear carrier/base plate and underside of OEM trunk would be appreciated) 3. I've read that a larger (45L instead of 31L) OEM trunk is available. Does anyone know where I may source one without paying an arm and a leg? 4. Are there any surprise duties/taxes/fees when ordering items from Europe from here in the States? Thank you in advance!
  2. My lovely wife wants to join me on a 9 day road trip for the first time since before kids (the oldest is 18). I have a 2014 standard VFR800 and I need to outfit it with saddlebags, a trunk, and a back rest but I cannot locate any pics. I'd rather buy used but... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Which rack is this?

    Hey 5th Gen folks, Does anyone recognize the rear rack in the attached image? I'd like to learn what make/model it is. I like traveling with just a top case, and my Givi Wingracks are very clunky looking and overbuilt for non-saddlebag rides [The Wingracks are great when using the saddlebags, though]. The rack in this image has an attractive, simple design - perfect for a topcase-only trip. I'm envious of the 6th Gen guys and their externally accessible grabrail mount points - it's so much easier for them to bolt a simple rack on. [This image was originally posted by Auspanglish - I culled it from the puzzling, infamous, and strangely magnetic thread "Unleashing 5th Gen Factory Power + DMr + Thurn MS"]
  4. tl;dr - want hard luggage on, no grab handles. How do? First post ever. Short and sweet. I got a 2006 last year and it's been treating me very well. I got some OEM hard luggage from David Silver Spares (which is great by the way). But while reading the instructions, I noticed that the installation actually requires the passenger grab handles. Mine didn't come with them. Apparently they're also very difficult to find although I haven't trolled through this site too thoroughly yet. My local Honda dealer can get them for me, maybe, for a cool $275…so the question is: has anyone attached the luggage racks without the grab handles?
  5. So I'm looking at the underside of the passenger seat cowl - it has a great big void. I can easily store my wet weather gear under the seat itself, and it seems a waste to have that space available and not effectively use it. It would be a great place to store a second pair of gloves, or to put a wallet, phone, keys etc when on a day trip. I'm toying with the idea of finding, or getting made, a water resistant bag that can be installed under there to improve the effectiveness of the space for the likes of the above small items. Has anybody come across a commercial option, or tried to make one already? Would anyone be interested in one if such a thing was available?
  6. Top Case(Bestem) For Vfr800 Vtec

    SO I bought shad mount for my vfr800(ebay) and a 46liter bestem case(Amazon) Installation was a breeze and the whole thing looks very stock. I had saddle bags before I installed the case, though they worked fine, but they kinda blocked the whole one side swing arm view of the bike. Top case is good trade off between practicality and looks. Costed 65+80 for total. I can but my laptop bag in without any problems. I can attach more photos if anyone wants any detail on any part of Installation.
  7. Gents, my OEM luggage is just sitting off the bike since I purchased it about 6 weeks ago. 2002 bike, not sure what year the luggage is, RED, with mounting hardware. I'm gonna list it in the classifieds, but I really have no clue what to ask. One case is an 8/10 and looks great, the other has a few surface blemishes and some light damage commensurate with age of bike. It's worth noting the bike had under 9000 miles on when I bought it, and I took the cases off immediately. I have a bunch of pics I'll post in the classifieds of course, but I know these things were out of bounds expensive when new. What's the going rate these days... Here's just a few basic pics. I just gave them a Optimum No Rinse wash, fresh clay bar treatment, Optimum Opti Clean, then Sonax Perfect finish AIO. Got much of the surface issues taken care of, but one box needs more polishing and it does have some light damage, as I mentioned. Anyway, looking for thoughts on real pricing, I'm not trying to rip anyone off, but would like fair market value of course. Thanks in advance...
  8. Topcase

    I got the factory topcase with the bike, a surprisingly expensive option as you must buy the luggage rack, the adapter plate, and the case itself. It is nice that it keys to the bike, but on the small side for serious touring. I heard this was Givi made. Does any other topcase mate with the adapter? I'm willing to give up the key convienience for capacity on the long rides.
  9. After a few long road trips I noticed some small (1-2mm) stone chips on the lower fronts of my OEM side cases. This prompted me to haul my cases over to Lucas at TankSlapper.com (he's local) to get custom protective film cut for me. He designed a new template from this effort. I wanted to post this since this same custom cut Is now available to any 1200 owner with OEM cases that wants protection. The protection is for the leading edges, where chipping occurs, as well as the ara at the top where you may drag your boot across it as well. The templates are shown in black in the 1200 kit he offers. I'm thinking luvtoleanit would be all over this after his nice looking custom paint job! Wish I'd done it sooner. BTW, I'd make sure to ask for the Xpel film as it is made to be very smooth and virtually invisible. 3M film has a slight orange peel texture compared to the Xpel film, which is a slight bit noticeable once applied.
  10. I have a low mile '97 and just picked up some Hepco and Becker racks for it. The instructions are in German without any diagrams, but how hard could it be? I didn't think there would be much of a problem mounting the racks, but I was wrong! The bike is 100% stock, but it seems like the exhaust is too high since the right side rack interferes with it. I hope the photos make sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated! PS - German instructions included for those that can read it 650158.0001-2.pdf

  12. I am looking in to ordering the Werkes GP slip-on, but does anyone out there know if it will work with the OEM panniers. I tried contacting the company but they were let's say, less than helpful with my inquiry. I use the panniers all the time and love them, so for me it would be a total deal breaker. Many thanks in advance.
  13. Had a friend tell me about a small/midsize tank bag on ebay for $20. It doesn't say it is an Alpinestars, but you can see it on the zipper and on the rear of the bag in a few shots. They tried to photoshop it out for some reason, but it is visible in many pictures. Not posting any link per forum policy, but you can find it by searching for: New Black Oil Fuel Tank Bag Magnetic Motorcycle Motorbike Oil Fuel Tank Bag Here is one of the pictures showing the Alpinestars logo
  14. my existing magnetic tank bag used to scratch my tank. Figured out a way to keep this in position. These guys bykebitz.co.uk sell the GIVI adapter separately. Paid about 60GBP abt 90 USD + shipping (could have got a new tank bag). the kit came with the tank ring, bag adapter and the necessary fitting screws. Positioning the adapter is critical - so it does not interferer with the handle bar movement and sitting. Tried to keep it centered on the bag. Chopped the tank bag magnetic ears ! The bag has a soft base, so it needed to be reinforced. Used a fiber (from a local bag repair shop). Made necessary holes on the bag. They had supplied a drill bit - since the bag is soft, used a punch. now to put it all together The bag now site about half an inch about the tank. Pretty secured. The fiber supports the base preventing it from sagging. need to be tested on load.
  15. So I have decided next year to venture out of my comfort zone and do my first European tour. Going to look to start in Amsterdam and work my way south for a few days toward France and return back to the UK via rail before riding north for the final leg back to North Yorkshire. A good few days ride, but one I need to prepare for, fitting my VFR1200 DCT. Next summer at the earliest, since most of the upgrades are pretty costly. That in mind, I am looking for the biggest set of Givi side case(matte black) that I can fit on my bike, while having the stock exhaust. I want bigger than the V35. Mounting hardware(with part #s) and pics would be great help. Was probably going to do a Givi Maxia E55 for the top unless someone has a better idea. A set of Admore Lighting signals is also on the list. Also anyone who has any ideas on any particularly useful upgrades besides a gps to make the trip better would be helpful. Except for a set of Heli-bars the bike is stock. Thanks much for your input.
