Just bought some Honda panniers and rack for my bird off an auction sites but the small reinforcement brackets are missing.is it safe to mount them without these. The seller says they are not still on his bike and he used them ok.
FWIW, I checked with DSS and they only sell the whole install kit (or as they call it "fittings"). The price for this install kt shipped to US is approx $365. That is a bit much just to get the four pieces for the frame supports. So can anyone fabricate some of these frame brackets? I have a lead on some panniers, but they too are missing the frame brackets. Thanks.
Well have tried dss and ebay etc to no avail. Are these small plates really necessary or is it belt and braces from Honda. I dont carry a pillion when luggaged up so how much frame flex would there be? Any ideas? Also here's a thought do givi panniers come with subframe reinforcement plates cos they are quite bulky/heavy. If not then why do Honda panniers need them? Anyone got any ideas.
