VN900 Custom Panniers (hard)

Discussion in 'Cruisers' started by All Blacks, Jan 4, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    I was after a set of hard panniers for the above mentioned bike, black if possible (sort of like a HD Road King).

    I have no idea if those types of panniers for the VN 900 are available, but I am not really a sadle bag fan and reckon the Road Kings look cool with the hard panniers.
  2. Hey! That's my thread over there at auskawasakiriders . com, The bags have been on the bike for about 6 weeks now, and apart from some elctrical dyslexia (my fault), they are performing faultlessly!

    I really like the run/brake lights at the rear, no tin tops are going to be able to claim they didn't see me from behind.

    The bags come from Mutazu . com in the US, although they are made in China, nice finish to them, the mounting kit is a bit ugly, but I'll get around to fabricating my own soon.

    With exchange rate shipping excetera they came to just over $600 which included the mounting kit, and the hardest thing about putting them on was manning up to drill the 1/2" holes for the mounting bolts.

    If I had it to do over, I would probably purchse some easybrackets, and use them to mount the bags, with the added incentive of making them a breeze to take off when you want.

    Go and have a look at the website, they have a few styles, hope this all helps.

  3. I've been wanting to find some of these for a while but hadn't yet started my search. Thanks for the post! They look perfect. Long live the Vulcan! :D
