Hi,
Does anyone know for certain that Honda  panniers from an original shape crossrunner will fit  a latest shape crossrunner?
Many thanks in advance

Thanks skidz,  any reason for believing they do not fit?

The original Cr (11-14) is based upon the older VFR800 Vtec (02-14) which had to have rails fitted to mount the panniers. The 2015+ model was a new design and had integral mounts so I don't believe they are compatible.

Older model panniers...

Nope, but 1200F panniers have the same fitting.
Current: BMW R1200RS, 2003 Yamaha TDM900
Past: Honda CLR125, Honda CB500, Triumph Sprint Sport, Honda VFR750FS, Suzuki DRZ400SM, 2001 Triumph Speed Triple 955i, 2015 Honda VFR800X

I think they will fit. I tried a set of vfr1200 panniers on my MK1 (2012) crossrunner and they seemed to fit fine.

The original crossrunner DOES NOT share panniers with the older vfr800 vtec as pictured above by skids otherwise I'd have kept the panniers from my old vfr when I switched to the CR. The panniers in the photos are the ones specced for the mk1 crossrunner - very similar if not the same as the later model and the 1200F and the mounting system is the same - no rack ala old vfr.

The 31L top box is also the same between all crossrunner models but unfortunately the metal mounting plate is welded to the arms in the older model hence why you can't fit the 45L box to the older ones.

Sorry, just read my post again - didn't mean it to come across quite so aggressive and criticising!
