Not compatible with Vario Top Case

Got my Charcoal Odyssey II's in and mounted. It took 1hr 45 min from closed boxes to tools down.

I had to dismount the Vario mounting base for the top box. It is not compatible with the Jesse mounting system. I am going to have to cut new spacers for the mounting base or I am going to have to add spacers.

Love the bags, but, Al, what is up with 3/16in allen screws on a metric bike?

I should have said, why mix metric and standard hardware in the same kit. There are 5mm, 6mm, and 3/16in allen head screws in this system.

I'm sure there's a fiscal explanation involving stock or tooling or some such.

My guess: The clamp that goes around the passenger footpeg support is an off-the-shelf hardware item. Apparently the size with the desired bore diameter comes with inch dimension fasteners.

Just ordered mine today. Rick says 3 weeks max. They are really good looking, and I usually hate the look of the side cases.

I just was notified that my Jesse bag order is in route.

Now let's see if it was worth the wait.

hah... maybe DiabloOscuro. Finally got them ordered, just awhile ago got off the phone with Rick, probably the coolest guy I've ever ordered from. Definitely wasn't playing the role of "pissed off employee who'd rather shoot himself than deal with taking my order".
The only sad thing is it will take around a month to get mine delivered in black, not that I can go out and ride or anything anyways when it's 0 degrees and the roads are crap, so no harm. (ordered the tie down racks for the top as well that also serve as carrying handles, good stuff).
So thanks to everyone on this post who helped sway my opinions, I was wrecking my brain for months trying to figure out what to buy.

They're here...they're finally here.

They look really good so now I just need to find the time to install them.

Those bags would look so good on MY bike.
Please post photos of them installed.

Here we go kids...

It took longer to unbox and deal with the bubble wrap than it took to install the Jesse bags. The racks bolted up very nicely and are super scukum.







I'm impressed with the new bag mounting system it's easy on/off.





A real nice feature is that they can be mounted forward for riding solo or shifted back when riding two up.



I'm happy with the weight (not the wait), design and craftsmanship. I'm a bit disappointed with the powder coat color. The old black would look much better with this bike. Also not impress with the fastener heads sticking out so proud on the inside of the bags...major snag item. I'm going on a hunt for truss head screws this weekend.



Al definitely kept the clearances tight when designing these.





So overall I'm happy with them and can't wait to put them to the test.

They look very sweet! I really like how close they are to the bike.
