OEM side cases question

Anybody knows if mounting brackets for 2017-19 650 are the same as brackets on 2014-19 1000? Part # is different but...BTW I'm talking about these small black/silver cases (not SW Motech).

The brackets ARE different part numbers between the 650 and 1000 but the cases work on both models👍.

The brackets are not interchangeable...

Rick123,
Your question wasn't that clear mate!!
And, being different part numbers, the 1000 brackets will NOT fit the 650 and vice versa.
But the cases are interchangeable.....

from my experience with cars different part # pretty often doesn't mean parts are not interchangeable. I finally had chance to contact Suzuki dealer though and he confirmed that brackets even look different. The best part of the story is brackets cost is over $700 CAN&#x1f600;&#x1f600;&#x1f600;.

So I give you the correct answer and you still question it. Is it a Canadian thing...y'know, not believing a (correct) answer to your question?!
Like I would spend minutes of my life screwing a fellow board member over??
Oh! And you are most welcome....&#x1f644;&#x1f644;
