Pannier kit does not include tail plate shown in photos. See it HERE. Add it to your order below. The SU Rack system is compatible with the stock tail rack.
Panniers are available standard or with exhaust side Clif-cut. Clif-cut describes the 1.5" exhaust cut-out used on bikes with wide protruding pipes to create a more symmetrical weight distribution with mounted and loaded panniers. It keeps the load on the exhaust side box as close as possible to the center of the bike.
Tim says: I recommend the Clif-Cut for this bike because it makes the bike 3" narrower overall with panniers mounted. Note that this advantage puts the panniers closer to the top plate, so there is 3" less width for top plate cargo.
Top Box Fitment Note: The 33 and 58 Liter Happy Trail Top Boxes will work with Denali standard panniers and all other panniers offered for the V-Strom 1000. They do not work with Denali Clif-Cut panniers. (The Clif-Cut is a 1.5" exhaust cut-out option available for V-Strom Denali panniers).
