  1. D0147808-2267-4796-BA20-448EA06B2EA0.jpeg surely this can’t be safe!? Am using the mounting bracket for my bike - monster R.
     
  2. It'll be fine..Your cans won't get that hot
    My panniers were closer on my hyper....
    Look nice those Termi's :upyeah:

  3. The bags are pushing against the indicators too :(

    Gutted. I go away in a week. I doubt they will refund me the bracket cost so that’s £120 down the pan.

  4. Could the velcro straps be tightened a bit more so they sit straight and would lift it slightly away from the pipes?

  5. My 899 had the same issue, they were fine, did Santander to Barcelona and back and they survived. The indicators have a certain amount of flex in them.

  6. Gave it a go but it doesn't really work as the inside bottom corner of the bags is held in place by a bar. Also it makes the bags push against the indicators even more.
     
  7. I have them on my 1200R with no issues. Notwithstanding I have an SC-Project Carbon.
    Yours does not look to bad.
    Notwithstanding, SW-Motech assures compatibility with stock exhaust. You can't expect them to be compatible with all after market.
    Anything other than stock is a hit and miss at the owner's chances.
    You can see the SW-Motech bracket on the pillion seat photo below.

  8. I agree about stock exhaust - but it’s a similar height.

    How about the indicators pushing against the bags. Do you have that problem?
     
  9. No only because I fit the bags ahead of the blinkers.
     
  10. I can't see how you can 'fit your bags ahead of the blinkers'.. they just go where they go. You can't choose where to put them can you?
     
  11. I did. The blinkers were behind the bags.

  12. I wonder if I'm doing something wrong - the fit doesn't seem to be adjustable so i don't see how i could be... will have another look but im totally confused how you managed to do that.
     
  13. Ahhh my tailtidy is the problem :(
     
  14. Ah good news!!! Once I tightened the clips the indicators are no longer being pushed by the bags :) Happy days!

  15. I’ve got an evotech tailtidy and termis on my 1200R and am considering the sw motec blaze panniers. @dubcat do you think they will fit ?
     
  16. Is that a RAM mount on the steering damper mounting ? Looks neat
     
  17. They do fit however you must mount them slightly forward to clear the turn signals when you have an Evotech Performance Tail Tidy which I also have. I would also suggest a strip of black Duck tape on the bags to prevent unnecessary rubbing by the turn signal. This is a minor issue as it take awhile before you notice any wear. The tape will prevent this.

  18. Thank you. It was quite the experiment to find the proper mounting solution. Notwithstanding, my Panigale was even more challenging.
    The objective was to have the GPS in line-of-sight yet not block the display. On a Monster "S", that's easy. Not so much on an "R" version or any Monster that has a steering damper.
    I have posted the methodology here:

  19. @DarR thanks for the info, that's really helpful.
