Just ordered KAPPA K33N Monokey Side Cases...Which Fitting Kit??

Just bought a sweet pair of the hard side cases KAPPA (Givi) KN33s for my 2013 (Gen 2). Anyone out there got these on their bike? And, if so, which mounting hardware kit did you go with? I'm looking for the mounting kit that will position these as close to the bike (most narrow fitting) as possible. Pics are welcome.

Thanks!

Givi Plxr450









You get a relocation bracket for the rear indicators and you will need to lengthen the wires (which I did) even then the right indicator was rubbing on the pannier so I bought one of these

What is the brand of windshield you have? It looks larger than any I've ever seen.

Nice set up and thanks for posting the pics. Really nice bike. Are those the KAPPA 33's? They look bigger to me for some reason. I have a fender eliminator kit on the rear so I'm hoping that I won't be needing to mod the turn signals. One of the guys at Revzilla suggest that I go with the SW not the Givi rack. Not sure why? Any thought?

Thanks again!

It is the Kawasaki branded MRA Vario screen. I bought mine from the local Kawasaki shop.

No I have only used the Givi. The photos I have seen of the SW-Motech racks show them to stick out a long way and I wanted close fitting panniers.

Out of curiosity, where did you order them from? I've been eyeing those bags myself....

Bought them from an Italian (Motopgun) distributor on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/161573803460...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

With shipping, they were still about $70 less than what you'd find elsewhere.

I got mine (Kappa cases, Givi racks, Givi top box mount and Givi tank bag from www.motostorm.it worked out about half the price of the Kawasaki gear.
I bought my LeoVince slip on from mototopgun off ebay (as binderline mentioned above) and very happy with the price and service
