  1. Hi my name is Vin, I am considering buying a 2015 Versys 1000 but I have some questions. The very first is I wish to make my own Ally panniers, but can't work out if there is actually anywhere to mount them, any clues before I take the plunge?

  2. Nup, but hello and welcome anyway.
  3. Welcome Gearless,

    A big tourer and they are commonly shown with Manufacturers Panniers so there must be mount points for those. Sorry I don't know from direct experience with this model. I would suggest go and inspect one, take digital photos and then examine the results. Unless there is some kind of Kwaka specific molding that the panniers hang on you should be OK.
  4. I did get to look at one recently but never actually took this aspect in, but looking at pictures it looks like the grab rail and the hanger clips for the Kawasaki panniers are integrated. I am wondering if someone has found a way of hanging pannier frames
