hi all  recently bought a 2011 m800 having problems finding the right rack and sissy bar brackets.  I used to have  a 2005 vz800   had no problems finding  a highway hawk set, when did the fixing points change and what where and are they now{ as mine measure  200mm centre to   centre}    I just bought brackets  and rack online and it arrived the centres are 215mm and seems not wide enough to clear plastics without rubbing.. was sold as a set to fit l1 2011 bike..  any help would be appreciated

cheers magic

Suzuki changed the rear fender mounting points in 2009 to a flatter type, you'll need to confirm with the supplier that any accessories will fit post 2009 models? which not many do apparently.

thanks simbo  the kit I bought from ebay from a motor bike parts store was listed as 2011 L1  sissy bar and rack genuine  Suzuki kit     .exactly the make model I now own.  should have rang them lol but just went on item specs the gave.  the pics you put are great I can see why the brackets are sitting to low therefore touching down on the plastic rear fender now.  I emailed them so looking to return the stuff///// done some digging around and apparently pre 2010 had 212 mm centres. I reckon they fit pre 2010 bikes ...................... metric cruisers it will have to be full price arrrr lol     thanks for your help simbo                    magic

dj-magic, I've been through the same thing myself here down under, I have a 2012 Boulevard M50/VZ800.

The 2010 model had a new rear fender design plus the M109 type headlight shroud.  2009 and before had that ducks arse rear mudguard and the mounting points were exactly the same as the C50/VL800 - parallel and 212 mm centre to centre (I've seen it quoted as 2 1/2 inches, that's close enough to 212 mm).

The 2010 onwards M50s/VZ800s had tapered mounting points and 200 mm bolt centres.  I had side plates cut out of 6 mm aluminium to mount my top box and saddlebags and to run them parallel I had to pack out the rear mounting point by about 30 mm or so (I think the exact measurement was the thickness of 14 x 8 mm washers).

Because there aren't that many post-2010 M50/VZ800s around, there isn't a lot of aftermarket fittings to match the new bolt centres and tapered layout, either from Suzuki itself or from aftermarket manufacturers.

So, while you have a different bolt hole centre, do keep it in mind that the mounting points are tapered in towards the rear as well.
