I removed the two plastic upper hard case mounting brackets that are used to mount the OEM plastic side cases to the the ‘20 1050XT and base 1050 so I could mount Bumot hard cases. The Bumot mounting brackets will install over the base 1050 side panel covers, and that makes for a cleaner looking installation. Base 1050 owners who want to mount the OEM plastic hard cases will have to remove the side panel covers and replace with the OEM upper hard case plastic mounting brackets (which Suzuki sells as accessories). I‘m looking to trade a base 1050 owner my upper mounts for their side panel covers. PM me if interested.
