919 Luggage

Anyone have any pics of luggage carriers on a 919. I want to get some but there are so many options, and I have heard/read different things about placement and balance for riding.

Im leaning towards a center mounted container right behind me. This is what I like,

Don't be afraid to build your own rack. This one mounts to the grab rail. By having an extra grab rail it can be easily swapped out.

I've been using a simple Cortech tail pack for small trips, and combining that with a Givi soft side cases for longer trips, both with a tank bag of course.

I really like that home made luggage rack though, makes room for a passenger if you're using a soft tailpack - which i like.

I use the SW-Motech rack with Givi harbags. Works great! I can remove the bags and rack in 5 minutes for aggresive riding.

I've got a single Givi V46 hard bag in the rear. It doesn't look too sexy but boy is it handy to have locking, waterproof storage. Fairly easy to install and no maintenance so far. Only wierd thing was getting used to the latching mechanism was a little wierd.

I just picked up an '02 919 about a week back. What really made it a great deal was the Givi hard saddlebags and a rear rack with a hard bag. They're on and off real easy. they're great except for the way they attach.

The saddlebags connect in three places. One place is on a strip of metal that screws onto the license plate screws wchich I'm fine with. Except that this intereferes with any stock turn signals I want to stick on. The previous owner had integrated signal with the brake.

The rack bolts on where the grabrail goes, and then covers the key opening. Both connections were poorly designed in my opinion. Other than that, I love them, on and off easy. I'm currently trying to bypass these problems.

Hey Red -

Did you buy that one on eBay...I think the guy was located in Baltimore, OH?
I emailed to see if he wanted to sell his luggage set up seperate of that auction, lol...no such luck.

Anyways...congrats on the 9er!!

There is one very easy and pretty system avaliable it is the ventura sport pack system.
Just take off 4 set screws for your rear grab rail and it mounts straight to the existing points.
No marks, no sweat, on and off in three minutes.
very well made and is custom fit for 919s
Cheers
Chris

+1. I've got the sport and tour rack for two bikes and it works great, and disappears in a few minutes like you say. I do like hard luggage, also.

This is a pic of that exact same box, but mounted on a VStrom (For size comparison). I have the E21 sidecases mounted with a GIVI PL532 tubular side rack. You can't even tell it's there w/out the cases mounted.

My 919 is a 2003. I have only one set of uder the seat tie downs. I believe the '04 has a double set. I am trying to come up with a quick tie down for my backpack to the office. Has anyone hooked a nylon stretch cord or bugee from under the seat?

I had a back rack on my Highthawk - that was to easy. The 919 is way more bike. I am undecided as to what I am going to do for trip. So far the setups on this thread have been helpful, in that regard.
