Yup! I bought two pair; a large in blue for the WR (don't make black in large), and medium in black for my wife's XT250. $20 and $11 respectively. They're stout heavy nylon with an inner draw string bag. I don't have them mounted as yet but see no reason they won't work. Probably not waterproof. Ca't go wrong for the money!

When you get these on your WR would you mind posting some photos? I'm interested for sure!

Just ordered myself a set as well. Thanks for sharing. Spoke with the customer service manager and he said these are a Steal at that price. What should be used to cover the Exhaust? I know Giant Loop make a nice looking shield... any others out there for less $$?

I bought a piece of 3/16 aluminum from the scrap yard, bent it to match and drilled holes to match existing bolt on OEM shield. Get some 3/4" bushings from the hardware an new bolt to length. Mount on top of existing shield.

makes sense... something like what I was thinking. Are you going to make a frame for the chain side? I'm assuming the Pannier wouldn't be that secure on that side of the bike because there is no frame to keep it away from falling under the bike (if you know what mean?). I'm picking these up on the weekend along with my Garmin Montana 650 and AMPS rugged Mount/RAM system. can't wait.

RE: frame chain side. I'm going to fabricate a tool tube and hang it off the OEM tool case mount hoping that will do the trick. Did you get your bags and what do you think?

I did this in '79 with my GS750L back in the day, your bike doesn't have the girth of a horse, I had to take a lot out of the middle piece that connected the bags the way I used them under the seat.

EDIT: Ok I looked at the product image, totally different than what I had to deal with, mine where more like this, without altering they almost drug on the ground

I think you're right though......some will have to come out of the middle section to get em up. These also separate. They have shoulder straps tucked away on the back in a pocket so each can double as a day pack if you're so inclined.

haven't picked up my stuff yet from the border. Should have it in the next week or so. Once you get your tool kit Fabricated post some pics. It's actually a better idea of going that route then just a useless frame. At least fabbing a new tool tube will be useful as long as it fits more tools then the stock one haha

well I received my Saddle Bags and Rotopax Fuel caddy (already had Scaggs rack).  I'm very impressed with these bags.  Thanks for posting this link up originally!  I was initially thinking I would need some time of frame/mount for the chain side but I think you're right about fabbing a larger tool kit which should keep it just out enough from under the tail section.  Lots of space/pockets, and adjustability!  for $30 shipped you really can't go wrong.  I also have a 30L Drysac that will go overtop of the Saddle bags so I'll be set for a weekend trip!
