Hey all, my search continues for some luggage options for my GRiSO. I've got a Mistral High Pipe and wondering if the C-Bow would work with it. The mounting may be high enough and far out enough to clear the exhaust. Anyone have that set up or experience?

Have the C-Bows fitted to my Sport - photo [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] for "clearance" however I have a different pipe and it is not high, though it gives you a feel for the spacing. Best if you lie down while looking at it - I'm too lazy to get it the right way up...

Many thanks! Still hard to tell what it would be like on a GRiSO, but still helpful.

AOAM,
Tried to fit my H&B C bow brackets to Pete's flying peacock when I borrowed it recently but the muffler got in the way, otherwise they would have been ok.
If you can drop the muffler down a little (maybe 50mm) you could probably get them on with enough clearance between the muffler and brackets.
Beetle managed to lower his enough so he can fit his factory bag brackets with the high Mistral so it can be done.
I have a low Mistral so there are no clearance issues.

I didn't lower the pipe, I modified the bracket. I bent the lower mount in such a way as to go to the outside of the pipe support bracket (it's no longer a rear footpeg), plus two spacers on the mounts underneath the rear subframe.

Many thanks for the picture! Looks like I need to buy me and try. I'll post up my impression after.

I wouldn't be very optimistic unless you're prepared to do some chopping and welding on the feeder pipe and extension of the Mistral hanger...
