Kawasaki bags for a 2014.....

I WANT the real Kawasaki bags....I WANT them in green to match the bike....however at the time I bought the bike, about 3 weeks ago I was told they do not exist in normal channels any longer, well DRAT.

Looking on the Kaw website nope they entire she-bang is not listed there as well....it is listed for the 15, but not the 14....well double drat.

So anyone know of a leftover "kit" to hang bags on a 14, or will I have to go after market.

I know they are pretty spendy, but I like the look and I like the color match of the factory bag set....and keyed to the bike would be real nice as well....I already look like a high school janitor with all the keys I have.

Just keep an eye out in the for sale section here and ADV, they'll pop up eventually.

isn't it the same thing as the aftermarket givi g35 bags? - I bet you can still get the color match panels from kawi though

Givi was the only one I've been aware of for the '14 model. With the color matching panels you can at least get the colors to coincide.

Also, I don't believe the OEM bags can be keyed to the bike's ignition.
I have the Givi hard bags on my '08 and I don't think I could get cores that would fit the ignition key for them.

I know on the 15 that comes with the bag can be....was not sure on the older models.


I figured the Givi bags are the same thing....I might just have to do that.

It just looks like they did not change that much from 14 to 15, but I guess they did.

I haven't paid much attention to the '15s, is it still Givi that makes them?

I found matching color panels in white (pearl stardust or whatever they call it) for the factory/Givi v35 cases on amazon.

If you get the Givi v35 you can add these color panels. I hope they match your bike. Mine came with factory bags but they have a separate key.
