Made some brackets for my new panniers today.The reason for doing this is to take the pressure of the zips as the bags are removable.It is a bit of steel welded to make a channel to sit in the pannier cradle.It acts as a buffer sitting inside the cradle taking the weight of the pannier,and so relieving the zip of carrying the weight of the bag and contents.There is a good couple of inches between the exhaust and the bag also with the bracket there is no way it can slip down onto the exhaust.Why the makers don't fit these brackets is beyond belief.The bottom of the channel (bracket) is open in order to still be able to detach the bags by the zip.The panniers are from M&P and seem to be well constructed.

Clever idea that one as we all know how zips can fail and you could potentialy have a lot of weight in the bags Brackets for new panniers, Suzuki M50 / M800 184121345

Good job Alfie and Nice looking bags Brackets for new panniers, Suzuki M50 / M800 2170595768 As Crash says you can carry a fair bit of weight in the bags especially over winter, those brackets will carry most of it and take the strain from the zips, Like you say ,why don't the makers supply them ? Because they charge about £25 for some bits of plastic which you've replicated at a fraction of the cost Brackets for new panniers, Suzuki M50 / M800 3498837457

Drill and screwed into pannier with 1" washer on to take some of the strain,bearing in mind the wieght is on the pannier bracket mainly,this is only for the protection of the zip,plus they also stop the panniers flitting around,saves tieing the shoe lace so to speak.Hope that helps the bracket is actualy a u shape,I am going to make new ones at mt leisure to incorperate a small bar with a hole in,which will be placed under the pannier bracket and placed inside the pannier to accept a small lock,for security reasons only.I will place the plans on here when done,(Got to do something it's boring in the winter).

Nice one Brackets for new panniers, Suzuki M50 / M800 184121345 Might stop a bit of scuffing as well. I had a pair of leather 'throwover' types where they zipped onto a leather centre panel, and that took the weight by hanging over the rear mudguard/under the passenger seat. But after just one trip to France, there were light scuff marks on the rear mudguard, which I think your brackets would help avoid.

It's so often these simple ideas that make the big differences.
