I like the look of the GIVI E21 hard saddle cases but apparently there isn't any sort of support frame made for these bags and a Suzuki M800 (2009). Is this correct or does anyone know better? Has anyone modified another another support frame so they can fit? Any help or comments appreciated !

if there the mono key ones i had mono key ones on a bike before they have a plastic piece on the side of the support frame that the panniers fix to the rest of the suport frame was just made of round (tubalar) metal pipe bent into shape and flat at the ends were you bolt it to your bike (more or less) with a fitting kit washers spacers bolts of the rite size so on in theary you should be able to make up the metal pipe to fit your bike if you have a pipe bender . or you could try contacting a few people in your area that make things like metal gates/ fenceing/ railling i came across a gye at a petrol staition on the side of his van the writeing said he made that sort of stuff i asked him if and what sort of metal he could work with and what sort of things he could do with metal twisting shapeing so on and got him to make me a sissy bar for a bike i had in the past it looked good (i liked it) and was what i wanted and no one else had one the same. im thinking of hunting down some one again in that line of work to make me a sissy bar for the bike i have now as 150 pounds for one on average seems like a lot of money for a bent piece of metal with a pad on it sorry i cant be of more help and good luck with your serch

The way I done mine was to drill the panniers with two holes to represent the fixing bolts for the rear mudguard.Then placed a 1" metal plate on the inside of the pannier also with two holes in to carry the weight more evenly.If you take the m8 bolts out and turn them round so the nut is in your pannier you will find it easier to detach the panniers.If you find the nut has been welded on the bracket inside your rear mudguard then the easy way is to drill the hole in the nut a bit bigger to accept the m8 bolt.I hope this makes sense,in practice it is very easy and very cheap.

Looks like you were properly prepared for the trip

A trip report in the relevant section would be great if you get a chance
I often update and add photo's to members showroom thread when they post a good picture and was suprised to find you don't have one

Ok no worries, I actually followed the link you created and put that picture in for you. If you do decide you want to post any pictures any time, just add the link and I will activate it as soon as I see it

Well I have only the 125cc custom experience, but I have faced the same challenge in the past in my mini cruiser.

Here how I solved the problem:


How I did fix the racks for the panniers:

2 x E250 Universal top case base -  Givi Monokey version







Hope it helps someone like it helped me some time ago.
