I cobbled together the pannier racks this weekend and as a result my ZX14R Hyper-sport is now a Hyper-sport tourer
Givi E21 ( 21 liter) top loaders, and a Motocentric tail bag ( 23 liter) should be all I need for touring next season ... That and my
Cortech tank bag (14liter).
With only 4 bolts, the racks attach / detach in a couple of minutes. The panniers are 36" wide, same as the mirrors.
The racks as shown weighs 6lbs and the Givi's 7.5lbs for a lightweight 13.5lb setup. Aluminum tubing
is 6061 T6 and the adapter plates are made with HDPE plastic. Paint is Krylon ultra flat black.
Adding an adapter plate as a top rack for my Bestem or Givi E360 would be a simple matter,
but I'll stick with the soft tail bag for now. Tom
