Soft panniers for your RFS:

These are pics kindly sent to me by KTMTalk member "oldPentonRider" from Colorado. He allowed me to post these on my KTM website, so I'm sure he won't mind if I show them here:








He indicated to me that he would be willing to build the side guards for someone if they were interested. That was a while back - if you want to talk to him you can find send him a PM at KTMTalk.:

Note 2: If I were building these from scratch, I would (in addition) extend the lower side guards with 1/8 mild steel plate all the way down to the frame lugs, rather than simply clamping them around the weak subframe. Subframe failure often involves damage to the lower subframe nutserts, so I think bypassing that weak point would be wise. I would drill out the threads and install a long countersunk bolt with nylock nut. Boot interference will be an issue, but not a serious one with some creativity.
