Thanks for the pics b_rock. That helps a lot. I am going to make an adaptor plate with similar holes where you have threaded the loops through. And an additional one for the top strap.
Based on the sticker in the photo, I would assume he got them, from Custom Cafe Racers and Parts. GSXR front end Conversion Specialists.Where did you get these cases and the brackets?
Cariboucases sells pelican kits for R nine T pure urban. BMW R NineT Pure Urban GS 35 Liter Pelican Side Luggage Pannier SystemWhere did you get these cases and the brackets?
I have I had them mounted in June 2019 prior to my trip to the French and Spanish Pyrenees.
Here are some pictures. My ride is very dirty because I use it to commute every day, and the weather these days in Belgium Ah well, I'll clean it in spring again.

At first, getting the bags to fit again seemed impossible, but there's a trick to fit them, There's actually a bit of flex on the bags and the connecting plate. So I start with the pin that's closest to the rear first, make sure the rest gets aligned and then - while holding down the release button - click it into place. To remove it, you actually have to pull it in a straight line towards the steering bar (About a 45 degrees angle.)
Thanks to the Hepco & Co rack, and some Touratech Rolltop waterproof sidebags, I was able to fit everything I needed. On the rack I used a Giant Loop Bag
I'll post some pictures later on.
Hope this helps
How far is the left side bag form the exhaust? Maybe post a picture from behind?.
I'd love to see pictures of this setup from the back or top, showing the mods you made and the distance from the rack. I have the same bags on my Urban and was unable to make the rear rack fit.
Yes, the left side bag does fit with the left side OEM exhaust.

Sorry @Happyrican66 . I saw this last week but have been busy. We had nice weather so I was out riding then we got snow the next day!How far is the left side bag form the exhaust? Maybe post a picture from behind?
Can you carry a passenger with the bags on?
Thank you! They look like they'd do what I need for commuting.Sorry @Happyrican66 . I saw this last week but have been busy. We had nice weather so I was out riding then we got snow the next day!
Here are a couple of pictures for you. Sorry they are blurry. The bike is buried in the garage right now so I went through some old photos. Hopefully these give you an idea. You could carry a child size person for a while but carrying an adult would be tough. The bags are a little higher than the seat, so the passenger can't be any wider than the seat or else their hips will put weight on the bags and mounts. They are dent bags for street use but won't hold up to off road use. The quick release is a nice function.
