Hi everyone, can anyone tell me if the Honda side cases for the VFR800 F 2016 fit a VFR1200F as they look identical , I have asked many Honda dealers and not one can or will tell me , now I know it is a key/lock issue involved but that aside I need to know if they will fit . Cheers

Hi Daveid

Did you manage to fit them to your bike? how is the difference in the ride of the bike? I have some for mine but not fitted them yet. I need to paint mine to match the colour of the bike, but quite excited about getting them on and seeing if I can still do my slow riding as before - of course I guess this will take some practice!

Hi yes I tried then on the vfr1200f 2011 model and they fit exactly the same .
I then went for a ride on the vfr800 f 2016 with the panniers fitted and I could feel the drag and the fuel consumption was up slightly as expected but I did find I was blown over the road more in cross winds so as a touring mount I think the 1200 would be better .
Hope this helps , Cheers Daveid

You know I never thought of that! so I'm guessing even with the factory panniers one can expect to have reduced fuel consumption and get blown about a bit? so maybe more practice needed than originally thought then!
