    Hello again,

    I am looking for a set of pearl white panniers. I cannot seem to find any but I can find VFR800X Cross Runner and VFR1200 cases of the same year and in my color. They look pretty darn similar but I sure as hell don't want to pay over $800 for something that doesn't fit and then have to hassle with a return. Especially as I cannot seem to find them in the US. I guess if I can find a set of red that is pretty cheap (Scratches etc) I could just sand it down and have it painted in the color I want (probably more expensive than I think) and only as a last resort... Thank you for your time and attention in this matter.


    :wheelie:

    I'm in the same case (VFR800F model 2014/2015). My dealer told me I can look for cases fitting :
    - VFR800X
    - VFR1200F (NOT the X)

    There might have to be bought some minor pieces to fit (he mentioned rubbers), at neglectible cost. But I would for sure beware for the exact colour... There is a relatively good deal to be found here : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ORIGINAL-HONDA-VFR800X-2015-CANDY-RED-SIDE-PANNIERS-BRAND-NEW-BOXED-KEY-KIT/273773551979?hash=item3fbe2ce16b:g:ML8AAOSwjCVclO3p . But I didn't buy these, as it's still too expensive to my taste, and I haven't contacted the local paint shop to have an idea of the cost of the repaint job (I guess around 100€). I don't know if he ship to the States (he's in the UK).
