  1. OEM Panniers and mounting racks

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hello all, My apologies if this has already been covered (I searched it, but didn't find a specific answer) but I had a question about the the OE saddlebags and how they're mounted. I picked up a set of used panniers (SW-Motech made version with Suzuki stamped) off of eBay on the cheap for my...
  2. Fully Custom Panniers

    General V-Strom Discussion
    First time posting, so some background first: I rode motocross for a couple of years before a scare put me off. My dad bought a VStrom in 2009 that I have stolen from him as he's moved to an R1200GS. I'm an engineer that loves tinkering and designing, hence the following questions. I have a...
  3. hard panniers for OEM Rack?

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hello StromTroopers, question for those with more knowledge that me. My new bike is an 05 650 Vstrom, and it has the nice glossy Suzuki hard bags and OEM rack on it already. I'd like to get some durable panniers for the dirt, but it would be great to be able to switch from dirt to street bags...
  4. Help on making Panniers fit

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I have a DL1000A 2012 V-Strom Adventure. I have decided to replace my OEM Panniers with some aftermarket ones. After having exhausted the internet and reading reviews I decided on the GIVI Outback Trekker series of side cases. Now that I found what I want, I come to find out they won't fit on my...
  5. Soft luggage advice, if you please...

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Okay, I am having a tough time making a decision on soft luggage for my V2. I think I have narrowed it down to these choices: the Happy Trails Mojave Kit for $467.00 (USD) (racks, hardware and bags); or the Twisted Throttle-Bags Connection Dakar Panniers set for $620.99 (CDN) (racks, hardware...

  7. Help with Adventure Pannier Locks

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    After two test rides I decided to Buy a 2014 Vee 2 Adventure. Just picked it up today. $12,500 out the door not including sales tax. All the Adventure parts arrived and were installed by the dealer. Have had many bikes over the last 40 years, and this one seems like its going to be one of my...
  8. Opinions, photos for Suzuki panniers

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    What are the factory panniers like for the new bike? I gather they're only moderately sized, at I think 29+26 litres.. A bit more space would have been nice. I wondered if anyone can talk about how well they fit onto the bike? Fairly neatly and well, or do they stick out miles to the side? is...
  9. Touratech Zega and Zega Pro auto-eject

    Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    For those of you that live with Zega panniers from Touratech everyday (I commute with them) you know that as nice and solid as the attachment method is, they can be prone to vibrating loose, and if left unnoticed will eventually eject on their own. I have prepared this video describing my...
  10. Will Moto Sport Aluminum Panniers from a DL1000 fit on a 650?

    General V-Strom Discussion
    I think the title says it all, a craigslist ad in my area has a guy selling side racks and aluminum boxes (panniers) for a V-Strom 1000. Does anyone know if these would fit on a 650? Thanks for any help.
  11. Dazed and Confused

    General V-Strom Discussion
    Help the newb. I thought that I saw sticky thread on luggage somewhere on the site but I can not find it now. Could you direct me there or does anyone have experience with the Happy Trail Teton panniers? Namely, are they waterproof? Thanks for any help.:confused:
  12. Ammo Can Rack Schematics

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Ive been reading up on mounting 20mm ammo cans as side luggage and I've come across a lot of info on the subject but no one seems to have any schematics/blue prints/parts lists etc. I'm a broke college kid and can't afford to dish out $800 isn't for Trax luggage and I don't want plastic Givi...
  13. Does anyone sell $250-300 Aluminum panniers?

    General V-Strom Discussion
    I've been looking for a set of aluminum panniers in the $300 range and found a few links to guys that used to make them and sell them to fellow adv riders on various sites like here and advrider and vsri, etc. But it seems as though they all either quit making them or, in at least one case, he...

    Hi, I've just bought a wee-strom xp :thumbup: but have a question re the locks fitted to the standard panniers - mine came with 1 lock per pannier, but on the official Suzuki GB site they show the panniers fitted with 2 locks per pannier.

  16. Happy Trails Panniers Questions...

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hello. As a noobie on here and new DL650 owner I believe I have narrowed it down to the HT panniers. I am either going to go with the 9 inch wide tetons, or the 7.5 cascades which are deeper but not as wide. My question is for users of both the 7.7 or 9 inch set up of HT users. Doesn't...
