Shad SH36 pillions
Have been looking to get pillions and a top box for the Versys 650. Wanted an LT, but didn't have much luck. Ultimately I bought a leftover 2015 Versys w/o the bags, thinking I'd just order them up from Kawi. I got the parts break down: $1900.00 for everything I'd need to do the color matched pillions and top box from the Kawasaki line...uh...NO!
Determined to do better, I found a set of LT bags being sold for $450-ish on eBay (vs. the 795.00 retail). I figured that was a start, until I saw the Shad SH 36s. They're bigger, still compliment the lines of the bike (over-all...at least they don't clash with the lines), and the mounting system (3P) doesn't leave a big, dopey-looking framework exposed with the bags off. All this, and the bags WITH mounting system were listed with a "buy it now" price of $599.00. The starting bid was 435, so I figured "why not?" and bid the minimum. Much to my surprise, mine was the only bid! Now I have a set of pillions enroute to my house, and they cost less than half what the factory stuff would!
I'll let you know how I like them when they arrive.
