PostSubject: Kriega Luggage   Fri Dec 02, 2016 2:08 am

Hi Guys,
I am looking into getting the Kriega Duo panniers.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The website says they need support on the frame and the company only appears to make a support for the Ducati Scrambler.
I don't fancy large framework on my bike. Is there anything minimalist and universal? I saw the C-bow systems, but wasn't sure the supports would work with this.
Any useful tips or recommendations?

I have C-bow with soft bags & some things to consider (took me ages to choose as c-bow soft bags look lovely, suit the bike, supports are minimalist when bags are off, but 22Litres each doesn't go far):
- I use C-bow supports to lift back of bike, passenger grip, general support. The Kriega ones say they are HDPE so not sure they would be robust for some of these things
- The C-Bow kit just about squeezes in and doesn't touch the exhaust. Kriega look more square and deeper so wonder if you might foul exhaust (pictures attached)
- You could easily use the c-bow struts and fit the Kriega plates and/or use c-bow set up with Kriega bags fitted (just using rigidity to keep them vertical etc) but these plus other mix & max likley too much pain
- You could likely fabricate a way to fit the kriega plates using 4 lugs as per c-bows but you need to check if it fits exhaust again. Let me know if you want any measurements on fitted c-bow stuff

Hi there, I'm looking at the C Bow system but have fitted a tail tidy which moves the indicators back about 2 inches. Looking at your pictures, it seems like they might squeeze in behind the mounting plate/bag but it will be close. I may be able to move the indicators in a bit further so they're closer to the bike (narrower) but it will be close. Would you be able to provide a measurement from a given point to where the rear of the bracket and rear of the bag are in relation to the distance away from the side of the bike?? Thank you.

I tried a drawing, then thought probably easier to write description, finally went photos with tape measure in ....(pictures paint thousand words joke in there somewhere). Note c bow cases are bisexual as they can fit either way around so i've pictured both although with thick end facing it gets close to the termni pipe. Let me know if you need any other measurements

Wow, thanks for such a speedy and comprehensive reply! The pics are a great help and looks like I might be able to squeeze them on. The one measurement that would confirm it would be from the bracket mounting point on the bike, measured out to the indicator. This is because I no longer have the standard mudguard in place and therefore no reference point. You've been so helpful, please don't rush - anytime would be great, and I think that would confirm it either way for me. Thank you.

That's a great help!  It looks like there's about 11.5 cms from the edge of the indicator and the mounting bolt on the subframe.  I've just been tinkering and managed to get the indicators positioned a couple of mm closer into the bike, so that same measurement on my bike is no more than 11 cms, so i should have all of about 5mm clearance - I should just about be able to squeeze them on!  Phew, it might be close though but you've been a great help cheers .
