R1150GS V's Krauser K1 Panniers

Hi, I'm hoping some of you out there can help.
I've aquired some Krauser K1 panniers & I was hoping to fit them to my 2001 R1150GS, I'm looking for positives & negatives...but preferably someone in the North East who has done this or something like it before to a very good standard.
I've assembled the framework & it looks possible to the untrained eye. The rear foot rests look ideal as a lower point of weight distribution.
I understand the subframes on these bikes are prone to bad wear if over weighted but I'm a light traveller & I'm not going to be off road...much.
Ideas please if you have any...
