I got them at Carry Cases Plus.
They were around $50 each With free shipping. I have ammo cans on my 82 GS850.

Katana throttle cable is longer and first gen GSXR is longer.Longer brake lines can be had here.Just send a note letting George know how much length to add along with your old factory hose. http://katriders.com/vb/showthread.php?t=92494

Thanks for posting up on the tires.I'm looking to run something similar on my Lite Tourer project.

Pat put on a SS front brake line on it when I bought it,and we put on the longest one he had.She likes the bars but higher ones would make it easier to stand up on.

interesting. someday (when it'll be necessary) i want to run the tkc's on my sv650, and i also think i'll have to raise the front fender. your before and after pics don't really look like the knobby took up much more room.

Very cool build! One thing I see is the quick release pins on the bags are pretty exposed and potentially inviting to shady characters. A quick way to help keep honest people honest would be to cross drill the pin and use a mini luggage lock on the end instead of the spring hoop. I use them on my soft bags all the time.



They won't stop a determined person but are a bit of peace of mind.

I can't really see any difference from stock tire to the TKC!!.I can still fit my fingers between the fender and the tire just like stock.
