Check out http://www.twistedthrottle.com

The Givi lights will fit your Kappa. They're interchangeable.

Nope - the Givi lights on the twisted throttle website don't fit without a little cutting and hacking. The Kappa 48L case as supplied as Suzuki cases on 2002 - 2004-ish VStroms aren't a Givi carbon copy.

In any event, the Kappa lights can also be found at Twisted Throttle. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...tview/426/203/ If you install them, please let me know how they go, as I've been thinking of ordering them.

With that said, I've also been thinking of putting an LED strip in the space for lights on the Kappa case. http://www.customdynamics.com/knight...rn_signals.htm.

Perhaps the best way to do this would be to install the Kappa V90 lights, to get all the wiring in place, then switch out the actual lights with LEDs.

Sure it costs more, but isn't that why we do all this stuff anyway?

They fit fine on my Kappa K48. They're not branded Suzuki, though. They are Kappa. Maybe that's the difference.
