There are no stock saddlebag frames.

If you are referring to the Kawasaki accessories, those frames are for the V3 bags only.

You have to buy the givi frames for straight back bags. Check out www.sporttour.com. for frames and bags.

I used the Happy Trail mounts and mount kit.

I'm thinking that fasteddiecopeman (sp) used the Givi mounts and ended up with a profile that's about 2 inches more narrow in the total width.

That's correct - I used the GiVi PL447 racks on both my Vs, and they are narrower than some of the other racks. This pic will give you an idea of the width. Note that the turn-sigs, while raised, are STILL the same width as stock.

Bloody Nora. Those things are gigantic, enormous, and just bloody huge. I've seen Asian villages smaller than those!

Caribou cases has DIY kits to fit luggage to many popular rack systems. Pricey but well engineered.
