700 has a different frame, different mounting points,different exhaust and therefore the rack is significantly different.
What are you looking for, honda rack and panniers? or panniers you could mount ally boxes on? or just panniers of any kind?
The givi one can be adapted for ally boxes,there is a guy in poland who does copies of TT ones and the TT ones occasionally come up on ebay.
The honda rack is an excellent rack,it tucks the panniers in nice and tightly and the quick release system is pretty cool and the colour panels match them to the rest of the bike so they look the biz and they are pretty aerodynamic but they are not cheap. You may find some laying in a honda dealers somewhere so is worth ringing round or keeping an eye out on ebay.
I have had both (still have a set in the shed) I now use touratech racks and boxes purely because I can carry more stuff. The varadero has one side in common (the smaller one) and the other is specific only to the alp.
Yes i am, but bloody Mr Honda wants £200 via Silver Spares for a setof racks. I take it yours are Honda ones? and are in good nick. If they are maybe we can have a deal. My e-mail is dekkit1958 at googlemail dot com, or dekkit at msn dot com,cheers Derek
No i havent, i have just gotten the bike. I have the Honda topbox but thats it. I would need a set of silver panniers. I may have to buy new ones but at £250 they are expensive. I will worry about that later if we can come to an agreement on the racks. I take it you will have the fitting kit aswell. Thanks
Cor blimey, the prices are down, I was quoted 800 plus for panniers and rack from honda. The panniers alone were 500+.
I'll have a mooch up the shed as soon as I have a mo' (mrs away this weekend and I'm alone with the 4 monsters)they were like new when put up there. As for a fitting kit they just bolt to the bike,I think I have a set of new bolts actually because you have to change a few on the frame,you move the indicators,you'll need to make a bracket for under the rear rack,and that'd be job done.
I might be breaking some forum rules here,not sure if you should be subscribed as well as me to be buying and selling stuff someone will soon tell me,mod?
Ok buddy no probs. That will be fine. Just let me know when you find em. I was quoted 450 for the panniers and the rack. The rack being 170 plus vat. That is from Honda, via david silvers. cheers Derek
I thought so, someone on here was trying to get some a while back and had no luck from honda. I thought you'd got lucky.It's worth ringing round a few dealers and see if they have any laying around as old stock,lings may have some or some of the bigger dealers down south or maybe a small dealer up your way. Also maybe ring a few breakers, a box here another there,make a set up.You can still get the colour panels from silvers I think.
