The Trax locks are all caps CRAP... I had one crumble to pieces within a week or two of buying the bike. Very cheap... the bags are awesome, if only they would put sturdy locks on them.

The GIVI locks seem to be flawless (according to my brother.) I have never owned them so I'm just relaying his experience. He really likes the Givi's, I'm a fan of the Aluminum panniers... its a personal preference.

If the locks broke down within the week. Didn't you get new ones then?

I am going to trade the bike in for the 1190 with the same dealer from whom I bought the Vstrom. He can deal with the locks. I wouldn't replace the broken lock with the same crap anyway.

Then I will probably buy the Givi ones. Downside is that you always have the rack on the bike. I also don't really like the looks of the cases itself

You can get the SW Motech and then the adapters to make different bags fit.

I'm thinking of this system with Hepco Becker bags.

35 liter caribou cases with Hepco Becker detachable mounts

They are sitting in my shop waiting on the bike . The owner of Caribou cases suggested drilling the cases after doing a mockup as he has seen several 1190s with the case mounted above the level of the heat. This bike will be my two up hauler so I will need to ensure the passengers legs will clear the bags. I bought the Wings exhaust and plan to cut the right mount and move the right bag closer .

Hepco Becker

V-Squared,

Did you get the Lock - It Side Carrier racks from Hepco - Becker?

If so what dealer did you get them from? And what price?

I went with SW Motech with the Hepco Becker adapter - they are nice but I was checking out the Lock - It system. I think it appears to use the KTM slide in mount and maybe one to a footpeg mount?

Why not go with the Hepco Becker Explorer bags? These look like they are going to be my choice.

Which Carabou bags did you go with? I was thinking of these but I like top loaders and theirs have wheels and handles on them.

Thanks for sharing! I'm getting very excited about this bike coming in.

Thanks

John

I can't decide.

Zega Pro 2 Alluminium (not the anodised ones) or Trax Evo Alluminium.
Both are (almost) the same price. The Zega Pro's cost 10 euro more.

You can't quickly remove the rack with the Zega Pro's

And can someone tell me why one should take the anodized silver?

I understand the bare aluminum will leave a residue if you don't use liners. The coated silver or black shouldn't do that. (my understanding, not experience.)

Can't find any review who confirms that. I do read things about the aluminum turning black after a while. I have a special product for that at home. I use it to clean my aluminum car rims.
