Hi all, new member here!
I've just bought myself an 07 VStrom 650. It was supplied with a rack and topbox but I'm trying to find out what my options are for fitting pannier bars.
I've taken a few images of the curent box and fixings here:

The top box has a Suzuki logo on, but it has a different key than the one the starts the bike. It's a great size and if possible I'd like to keep it. Is the box actually manufactured by Suzuki, and can any other kind of box fit that plate fixing it uses?
Are there pannier racks available that can be fit with the topbox rack in place, or does each manufacturer make you strip everything off and go with their complete luggage system?
Any input would be much appreciated!
