Looking to buy FJR side cases


Recommended Posts

Already have Yamaha 50L top case - love it.
But for long trips, I would like to add 2 side cases - Yamaha City Side Cases seem to be too narrow, small capacity for my taste (longer trips).
I heard that FJR side cases are 7.5cm wider and fit on FJ09, but can't find them being sold (new) anywhere in Canada.
Not sure if it really fits on FJ09 (2015) mounts - what additional part numbers I should be getting to guarantee smooth installation on FJ09?
Any other suggestions or recommendations, if above solution is not doable . . .

1. The FJ-09 Yamaha hard cases aren't available in the UK, so I've only seen photos.
2.However I'm pretty certain they have same casing (different lid) as those for the TDM 900.(which are identical to FJR cases)
So you could see if they are available? Just check first.
Honda SS50, Kawasaki Z200, Honda 400/4, Yamaha TDM900, Yamaha XT660Z Tenere, KTM 990 Adventure, BMW R1200GS, Mr Stevens, and my favourite of all: Yamaha MT-09 Tracer...a bit like FJ-09 only properly named :¬P

I use a givi system for the panniers - PLXR2122 racks and Kappa K33N cases. Kappa cases are made by Givi, and are compatible with their racks.   If you get Ride Magazine (UK), the guy testing the Tracer uses them, and really rates them - he wrote about them in the past couple of issues.
