I have heard that the reason Kawasaki do not approve of fitting both panniers and a topbox is too much rearward weight bias and that there is a risk of the front end washing out. I've been told this from a couple of sources and I know of two Versys riders that crashed while riding with this set -up. Saying all that, my intention on my euro tour this year is to go for the Givi set-up and add a 33ltr topbox which will be kept virtually empty so that I can use it as helmet storage while off the bike.
Good luck exploring the infinite abyss
