Pannier mounting rails?

Recommended Posts

The funky pieces down each side of the pillion seat, above the coloured rear section, I assume are related in some way to the fixings for the OEM panniers?

Do they serve any other function?

Do any of the non-OEM panniers use them as part of their fitting?

Is some additional frame also required, in addition to these side rails?

Yes! Shad and Givi use them. Even if you use the Yamaha panniers you will need a piece for the third mounting point. The Shad 3P system is the most subtle except the Yamaha one.

I just added the Shad 3p system to my Tracer 900. I then ended up finding a crazy deal on amazon for SH-35 cases, Racks (for a different bike), and inner bags for $140. Those cases by themselves go for over $500. Amazon has a kooky pricing algorithm.

Oh My Word!

So, in the UK, even on ebay, the Yamaha panniers are £390 EACH!

Then another £100 for the tiddly brackets that bolt to the pillion footrests, and then on top of all that you have to buy the lock!

It is a neat, minimalist system, and nice how it clips into the bracket at the top, but that is a colossal price! 😲😲
