Givi PLX359 Tubular Pannier Holders - Yamaha FZ1 Fazer
Customer Product Reviews
Strong and well made
I did not fit these to a Fazer. I easily modified the frames a little to make them fit a 2017 Triumph Street Triple 765. They fit great and give me the capacity that the ST604 thermoformed pannier do not. Very sturdy.
I already had the back box arms on the bike so the install was straight forward. Although the instructions are awful. There are 4 large spacers with the kit not mentioned on the instructions. I figured out where they went from doing a google image search of the rack already installed on some bikes and could see where the spacers went. It also needs the OEM plate holder installed as it bolts onto that. All in its very sturdy and well made.
Indicator design not great and few defects
Already had the topbox and mounts, so this easily fits to the existing rack for the additional pannier mounts. Initially the fitting went well and the quality appeared to be the usual high Givi standard. Then I came to move the indicators as is required with these racks (they have rear mounts that locate through the indicator location, and new brackets for the indicators to mount to). One of the arms was bent and so isn't located well through the indicator mount. Also it doesn't explain that the reg plate light wire will also need moving as this also routes through the hole the bracket needs to go. I then fitted the indicators and noticed the left mount was also bent and needed a lot of forceful persuasion to get back into shape. I'm not sure if this damage was done in transit (the box and packaging was fine so not sure), but don't expect this from Givi and at this cost. Otherwise however, the mounts do their job and are a good fit. Shame about the couple of issues which drops the rating, but they are worth the money if no damage. Service from Sportsbikeshop was first class however.
