side cases opinions
In my previous post, I stated that my plans are to use the GIVI Trekker 33n side cases mounted on PL4121 racks. After reading a post from another forum, I'm not so sure about that move. According to a post, and I'm paraphrasing, SW MOTECH will not make full grown racks for the X300 because they feel the frame (rack mounts) are not strong enough to hold a large load. I don't know for sure that statement is from SWM but....... Now they do make a Legend series rack and bags but that system is small and in my opinion doesn't look right on an Adventure bike. The OEM Kawasaki cases are 17L and are made of plastic. I want/need something bigger. So, how much does one of the OEM cases weigh?
Should I go with the new GIVI soft bags, GRT 709 or maybe the Kriega OS32?
The bike will be used 70% road 30% Adventure riding.
