KTM Hard bags for 620 (640)

I'm looking for some KTM hard-bags for my 1998 620 EGS. I love my Giantloop, but would like the option for hard-bags as well. Anyone have a good resource for these or better yet used? Thanks!

Ken

Took a while to catch up with all the new posts.

Bike is still going strong except the clutch sprang(?) just pooped out. Replacing the spring tomorrow

( fyi Im not overweight, im average for an athlete ) not sure if its common, or what... Anyone else have experiences with this? Was thinking redoing the seat, or aftermarket might be better.
Advice?
Got one on mine!



Best upgrade yet!

What I did is be patient on eBay until I found a stock seat. Paid $50 shipped for used stocker and sent it into Renazco so I could still ride while my new seat was getting built.

Now I have two seats if I want to have another one built down the road!!

Mine was built +2" high and +2" wider on both sides! I am 6'4" and have a big butt!

Oh and get full suede! My 2007 BMW XChallenge was half suede half vinyl. It is on the Renazco website for your viewing.

good one!

oh yeah, for the seat guy-I regularly do 1000 km days on my Renazco. If you plan on touring etc go with vinyl rather than suede. I have vinyl on the 640 and suede for the 525
