Pannier on R3?

Have anybody done it so far? I would really like to try to get a Givi E22 sidebox up on my R3 or something similar.

Thought a box that could store my rain coat would be great, and top box simply spoils the looks of the bike :/

I've seen a couple of photos online of people doing it but i am not really sure how to go about doing it. I was thinking of using the screws underneath the pillion seat, but i consulted a mechanic and he told me that it might not be very stable.

If you look closely at the picture you can see the extra brakets/bracing extending back from the rear pegs.

I have a hepco and becker saddlebag system which mounts under the tail and from the passenger pegs. It is very stable.
You might be able to get givi racks from another bike and modify the mounting points if you are mechanically inclined. If not, there aren't a whole lot of options.

Here's what my frame and mounting points look like.

Ventura make a mount specifically for the R3. I've got the top box installed, but they provide a range of luggage options including panniers.

Thanks guys for the input

But i'm not really looking into saddlebags etc because in my country it rains A LOT (it's raining as i'm posting this right now). My current temporary solution is by using a waterproof bag, that is secured using a net tied to the helmet hook beneath the seat. I tried tank bag on my previous bike before too but all these solution will still allow water to seep through into my stuffs, so i was hoping to look for something more solid rather than a bag/luggage sort.


@cxa0897 , I saw that online too, if only GIVI had the same thing :/

@mitdr774 , Yeah i noted that, but i dont think that 2 point would give sufficient stability, furthermore it would pose a problem on the opposite side where there is no exhaust to secure the bar to

I have a pair of Givi 22's that need a bike too- and I contacted Givi to ask if they had any plans to make sidecase brackets for the R3, and was told "no"

It seems like they make brackets for everything else- so why not the R3 ? Maybe if enough people asked about it they would reconsider.

Would we be able to see a few other pictures of it? Particularly from the back? Also, where did you get it from? Would you be able to get a link for me? I can't find any. Did you have to make any modifications to the bike to get it fitted?
