    Will stock hepco and becker panniers from a 2005.5 990 adventure fit my 2011 990 adventure?

    I don't see any difference in mounting hardward. My 2010 uses the same as any 950. Look at suppliers sites and they will break down the different years if applicable. 950/990 are the same.

    Yeah I'd be shocked if they won't work.

    If you are referring to the plastic Gobis then yes, apart from being available in black and other "minor" updates, the Gobis from the 2004/2005 series are the same as the ones offered for more recent 990s, etc.

    If it helps - I have the Gobi's mounted up on my Suzuki GSXG and that bike is a 1993. I use the Gobi's on both of my bikes.

    Hepco Becker mounts are pretty universal from what I understand. If you have Hepco Becker mounts, you can mount any Hepco Becker Pannier.
