    has anyone used the Oxford sports panniers soft luggage on their 675?
    If so have there been any problems with heat transfer from the exhaust to the panniers on long journeys or any problems at all.
    I've just bought a pair as I don't want to use a tank bag , just a tail pack and the panniers.

    Any advice would be muchos appreciatedos

    Thanks...

    put a high tail pack on when i first had bike for a days ride around wales , had to sort of polevault into the seat as i couldnt swing leg over , fine once yr on, but you forget once stopped & have to do your vault thing again with folk watching , had a nast moment at a garage talking to my mate just swung leg as normal forgot about tail pack & nearly knockd bike over ( what a nob ) , so dont do tail packs now , its in the garage covered in dust

    i have a set of oxford sport ( same as japs ) but just the panniers & tank bag that will do me
     
  11. Jap, - I've got Cargo Sports Panniers from when I had the Gixer. I have not fitted them to the D675 yet and am worried about the underseat exhaust melting them. Did you have any problems?

    I bought some none slip matting from Wilkinsons and cut to shape to protect the rear fairing. So far it's worked a treat. That was the top tip I gave when I was interview for MCN about the D675.
    Claim to fame :)
     
  15. Andy,

    Did you find something non-flamable to protect your panniers from the heat?
     
  16. VENTURA system. Pricier but the Bees Bollocks. Full kit without discount would be £300 but try Hein Gericke and barter. Might get 10% ;)
