    Panniers

    I am looking for a, preferably used, pair of Honda panniers for my bike but they seem to be unobtainable.
    I do like the way the Honda panniers blend with the bike but I do not like the price of a new pair (£600).
    I have seen these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SHAD-SH36-CARBON-SIDE-PANNIERS-FITTING-KIT-3P-HONDA-CROSSRUNNER-800-2015-2016-/142357981513?hash=item2125326949:g:i6IAAOSwHHFY-yjzese
    The fitting kit seems to be fairly unobtrusive and I was wondering if anyone has had experience of them?

    Not heard of them before but they're Italian and the Italians do make the best luggage. Looks a neat fit too. Only downside I think would be customer support/returns as they're based in Italy.  :027:

    I have gone ahead and ordered a set from Motobuykers.
    They were offering the fitting kit + 2 x panniers, with carbon look panels,
    + 2 x pannier inner bags for £345.20, including delivery.
    They arrive on the 28th April and I shall report back once they are installed.
    The good thing about these panniers is that if I change bikes I will only need to purchase a new fitting kit (they are about £100.00).

    The pannier fitting kit seems to mount to the top box fitting.  Do you have this in place?

    It would be interesting to see if they will fit to a Givi top box fitment as this looks very similar.

    I have the Honda rack and top box fitted (as part of the Rider package).
    Once the items arrive, and I have fitted them, I will update on the installation.
    There is an installation PDF on the Shad website.

    Hi SFC1000,

    I have not fitted them yet, too busy, but I have offered up the rails and they do seem to tuck in quite tightly.
    The panniers themselves are good quality and when you open them, when they are on the bike, they are shaped so that things cannot fall out of them.   
    The panniers can also be opened without using the key each time.
    The panniers came with liners, that you can use as a carry bag as they have a shoulder strap, so in all I think it was a good deal.
    If I change the motorcycle I only need to buy a rail fitting kit.
    I can see these being with me for a long time and I will post some pictures as soon as I get around to installing them.

    Dave,

    The brackets for the pannier rails fit, one each side, to the bolts that are, about, halfway between the two bolts, per side, that hold the standard Honda rack (the rail bolts are under the clip on plastic side trim and can be seen if you remove the rear seat).

    The GIVI rack looks to be, roughly, the same as the Honda rack so I do not see a fitting problem (there is no connection between the rack and the pannier rails).
