givi v35's on a bike they weren't intended for

i'd like to mount a set of givi v-35 saddle bags on my suzuki sv1000n .givi sells mounting hardware for their e 360 bags but to me they sit too high and don't look as nice as the v 35s and they don't sell the mounting hardware for the v 35 bags for my application . i have a cooscase trunk already on the bike that i'm happy with. i don't know where to start, do i just buy the cheepest used set of hardware from e bay and plan on cutting them up or buy new for a different bike. anyone try somthing like this before.

I'm confused. Are they not both part of the monokey line? if so they should mount witout issues to any monokey rack....

no, V35 have a scalloped back and a different mount, I've run them on a few different bikes.

OP, have you looked at SW-motech racks? they make racks compatible with the v35 cases for a number of bikes.

Sorry to say that SW-MOTECH does not make a "Contour" carrier for that bike. This is what you need for the shape of the back side of the Givi V35.

We do have a carrier for this bike

If you combine these with the Bags-Connection Aero Sidecase you'll have a nice set of quick release cases with a great shape. They look like this:



More info HERE.

There is also a Youtube video. Check It Out HERE

Good luck.

Kevin

Good to know, thanks. Saved me a potential costly mistake...
