    Quick question

    How wide does it make the CR when Honda panniers are fitted?

    its not a quiz I'm looking to buy panniers, I've got the chance to buy Honda panniers but just that the Honda ones look wide

    cheers steve

    Less than the handlebar width. I bought honda cr panniers some time ago and researched this when I did.

    I'd bet the Crosstourer panniers fit also, anyone tried?

    Yep its a little under the stock mirror width. Mine came off a vfr1200, cannot remenber the year and are exactly the same as xrunner (genuine hond a) .
    There is a very comprehensive thread somewhere here that covers all of the permutations for fit. Skids had quite a bit of informed input. Definately worth a search.
    The crosstourer had very diferent panniers under the Highlander" name, if memory serves.
    My panniers were on an auction site and cost me a lot as they were like new. But still 50% less than honda. Mine are white on my red bike, so if you find some red but have a white bike, you know who to call for a swap. :016:

    They are different panniers, very square and much bigger. Doesn't mean they wouldn't fit, but you'd need to check before purchasing. The VFR1200F and VFR800F panniers are interchangeable with the VFR800X.
    98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles, 08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles, 15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (all sold)
    14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
    18 VFR800X - 16,000 miles
    01 VFR800 Fi-1 - 0 miles (yet)
