Word of caution:
I had these for my '11 s1k. The points where the bag made contact with the tail fairing where showing signs of abrasion on the bags. The paint was fine. But after about 4 months of use, the bags had the outer protective layer worn thru.

Twisted Throttle offered to replace them. But some d-bag swiped them off my bike during a pit stop. My concern was over time it would definitely start to eat the paint.

Thanks for sharing the review (I know old bump)

Just want to clarify the passenger pegs can work with the bracket. And is there some sort of lock to leave bags on bike?

Yes passenger pegs work and no lock not unless you get luggage lock to lock the zippers. I typically take the bags with me when I get off the bike.

Just went on a ride last month with the bags and loaded them up with a set of coilovers for my car. They fit and did the job.

I have the same bags, and wanted to go with the NRC eliminator but am not sure if my bags will hook up with it.

The bags would be too small to fit a helmet?

I tried and couldn't get it to work--at least not in a way I felt comfortable with.

Looks like a great system--just not for us with the full Akra system.

They're tough, really tough!

I've had a set of these for over 6 months / 6000kms of abuse on my 899. All but heavy rain won't penetrate them and they are stable at least to 270km/h.

Yesterday i forgot to clip them... and they came off! On a busy hwy at 130km/h. Nobody ran them over thankfully but they were full of gear and only suffered some minor abrasions. Very impressed!

I've manage to squeeze in a Small sized Shoei GT, but it's a serious squeeze for emergency only even for a small, but possible.
