all of those have reasonably priced products.

I got mine from leatherup as well. Can't find them anywhere anymore tho. Not for what I paid for them anyway. I am thinking of making another pair from scratch.

I know it's been discussed all over this forum - but where can I find the kit with saddlebag supports (if needed) and the signal relocation hardware? (without paying a mint hopefully)


Thanks

Asbrand - stupid question - does your tail bag mount directly to the luggage rack or to the backrest as well? And does it have tail/brake lights on it or just reflectors?

I second the comment - a very nice looking bike.

I believe Kawasaki quit making them, which is why some of the Fire and Steel accessories are hard to find and pricey. Try ebay, but doubt you'll get a bargain on the relocation brackets. Saddlebag supports maybe.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

It mounts only to the luggage rack. Had to take the "toolbox" off the backrest so the lid would open. Also makes it easier to reach the bolts holding the seat on.

And those are just reflectors. Though I am sure someone could rig up LEDs in there if they wanted.

Got it from Sears last year. Was only like $35. Love it! Just big enough to put my helmet in, or carry a bunch of stuff.
