You can carry a lot of things and the soft bags don’t worry
stability if fixed with a pair of cargo nets.I have used these along years with different bikes
FZR 600 to August 2013, fitted in my friend JC FJ, and they
appear to be like new. The only drawback is that the bridge
between them make the special seat cover to avoid passenger
slippage superfluous. Excellent product.
Mine ones are
Magnetic Tank bag
How could a motorist live without one?. I bought an enormous Caverdale mag
bag in 1988 and after intensive use I bought a cavernous
the US in 1998.
both of them.
All the things
I could say are few to express all the bag has carried along
years, with sun, water, ice, snow.
Krauser hard luggage
I bought my actual FJ with these fitted.
It is a K2 system. Very
useful if you carry a lot of things or if you go to visit any
you arrive, change your clothes, keep inside
the motorbike equipment and take no uncomfortable
gloves on. Don’t explore more than
160-180 km/h with these fitted. The bike start to move itself
and it could be dangerous.
The drawback is that the saddlebag-mounting brackets are bulky
and these have to remain on the bike when the bags are off,
making ugly our FJ.
and apply a lot of screws glue to the fittings and use a couple
minimize the vibrations or the
break the FJ rear sub-frame fittings.
Trying to avoid the vibration, I replaced the original long metal
fitting with 2 metal sticks, with a screw between them making a
little of vibration absorbing functions.
Bad solution anyway.
top case vibrated horribly with no solution available. In fact,
I lost it last year. And It was horrible, so I was fortunate.
NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL
fitted in my FJ 1100, you can unfit – refit the rack in 5 min
with only 4 screws. Good, and as you can see, you could take
your fat mother-in-law inside the bag
friend Edu´s FJ fits a complete Givi fittings to carry 2 cases
and the top case. The cases look less integrated in the FJ look,
but the fittings are much more stronger, with no vibrations at
all, solid and good finish. I recommend these far away than the Krauser system.
cases are excellent ones. I own a Maxia 52 type and the quality
of finish is superb!
Yamaha OE hard cases
I am sure
that these are
Hepco and Becker
ones. My friend
bought them on eBay, and when I sold the 3XW I transplanted the
cases to my 3CV. The fittings are fantastic and don't break the
bike or vibrate. And they can easily be removed from the bike,
leaving the rear carrier alone. I've fixed a Kappa support with
tie-zips to carry the Givi case.
The only drawback is that you need 2 keys: one to close
the case and one to have it fitted to the bike support, and the
material of the keys is bad and poor. The good thing is that
even with the key is difficult to open the case if you don't
know a little trick. Anyway, I recommended them.
Gerike soft travel bag
see that like-rubbish-bag tied to the Jose Carlos rear bike
tail? Well, it is a Hein Gerike cavernous travel bag. It is
horrible, but is fantastic, and completely waterproof.
RECOMMENDED!!. Watching his happy face everyday when
travelling with him due to using dry underwear, I bought one of
them too and I´m so happy like him
