I'm looking at the MU cases and am wondering what is the best option for mounting them..?

Are the freebie bar-stock mounts good enough and "clean" enough for the C50, or should I upgrade to the Ghost Mounts..?

Also, since my ride is the 2007 Silver/Pearl White, I'm wondering if the silver or white bags are a close enough color match, and which would ultimately look better mounted up..?

The MU Universal cases, as pictured in the link above.

I am going for the cleanest retro look possible, which is why I'm kinda leaning towards the silver/white combo, with the side doors being in white.

I have the same bike/color as you do and I want the MU bags too. I called them and asked about the color match and the guy told me the silver matches well. I also wanted to do the white doors on the silver cases but the guy I spoke to said they dont do that. I am about two months out from ordering them and I was hoping I could get something worked out with them before then. If you do order those bags soon please let me know the quality of the color match and if you do get them to do different doors let me know how you got them to. I think these bags would look great with the two tone paint.

Yeah they are out about an inch further than they need to be. I plan on making my own mounts for them that keep them close.

I emailed them earlier this morning with a couple questions, and here is thier reply:

Our silver and white are the standard color.

We don't do two two tonn paint , they come in solid color only.

CCG
I'm thinking that I will likely go ahead w/ the SILVER as soon as I'm able to spend the money on them, then I'll look for the proper color of white in a spray can that is designed for painting plastic (ie: Krylon Fusion, Plasticote, etc.)

Worse case scenario is that I have to take them to a specialty paint shop and shell out another $250 to have them custom 2-tone painted, using the actual Suzuki paint codes.

You know whats funny about that is the Ebay stores says something about welcoming customer orders...


If you get the white bag I will get the silver one then we can swap doors. I know you want the silver too but if you can live with white with silver doors we could go that way.

Like the look of those MU bags. With the side opening door is there a problem with water getting in, or is the door tight enough to keep things dry? They seem to be the widest I've seen advertised. :p

Here is a great example of how they will look.

This is a good back view of the Mounting set up that comes with them.

They stick out a bit and I would love to see them about an inch closer on both sides. You can also see the color mater of the silver in the second link. Looks good to me.
I like the hard bags...not sure about ABS plastic, though.
If I ever get them , I'll use my Easy Brackets...they stick out quite a but, but I like the low, wide look, and you can't beat the ease of removal.

I just ordered a set of the MU cases in silver, so I'll let ya'll know what I think of them upon arrival...

Eventually I'll have them custom painted and pinstriped to perfectly match my bike.
