Kappa Side Panniers - Compatibility?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm new to this community, have a 2006 Viffer which I bought new and remains totally awesome! I live in Melbourne, Australia.

 

I'm about to tour Tasmania and have the opportunity of purchasing some 2nd hand but never used Kappa Racks and Side Panniers. I currently have a Ventura Rack fitted, and use that for my large expandable RJays Textile bag. I need to know if the Kappa Racks can be successfully fitted to my bike along with the existing Ventura Rack still in place?

 

Any advice or assistance would be gratefully received

 

regards

Doonks

I'm a little confused by your question. Are you looking to install the Kappa Monokey mounts in place of your Ventura mounts or somehow mount the Kappas to the Ventura mounts?  Just looking at the Ventura mounts online, it doesn't look like the The Kappa pannier mount uses the same bolt configuration as the Ventura mounts, so I don't think the Kappa mounts are a direct swap with the Venturas.  Zip ties may be sufficient to mount the Kappa mount to the Venturas, but I'd just remove the Venturas and install the Kappas.  I have the same panniers and love them.  I also have a large Givi top box as well, and the combined storage capacity has not left me wanting more. 

 

Edit:  I didn't notice this was originally posted November 25th.  Probably not much help at this point...

The Ventura rack is very popular Down Under; I think it may be similar to Vegemite in terms of devotion...  I'd be surprised if no one has had a go combining the Kappa (or GiVi--same mounts) pannier mounts with the Ventura, which only goes up and back, but it would probably have been done by a fellow Antipodean.

 

Ciao,
