Corbin Beetle Bags for 2008-2013 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX 1300 R
Corbin's Beetle Bags were specifically designed for the Generation II Hayabusa to emulate the visuals of the bike and integrate perfectly. Notice how the lines and details of the stock bodywork has been incorporated into the design of the bags... some folks have even said the 'Busa looks better and more "balanced" with the Corbin bags installed. As the saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words" so we'll let the images above speak for themselves.
Corbin's saddlebags are specially engineered for each motorcycle so they fit the profile of the bike perfectly, like pieces of a puzzle. This enables the bags to carry the weight of the contents closer to the centerline of the bike and maintain perfect balance. Another benefit of our design and mounting system is a smaller overall width for less wind resistance. You won't even notice they're back there when riding and they remain stable at all speeds.
In this particular application, we have you remove the turn signal pods as a part of the installation process. This allowed us to provide that much more storage inside the saddlebags. We've designed the bags with a similar shape on the outside surface to keep an integrated look. You will transfer the stock turn signal lens to this location (wiring extension is included).
For loading, we've placed the doors on top of the bags and they open forward into the wind. This assures that contents will never spill out of your bags when you open them. The forward hinge motion helps the doors to self-close in the wind if you happen to forget them. Naturally the doors are fully weather stripped to keep the rain out if you should be so unlucky as to get caught in a storm. Chrome door locks included.
Both bags come fully lined to protect your cargo and the doors feature adjustable locks for security. Installation is suitable for the average weekend mechanic and includes all required mounting brackets. Saddlebags are constructed of our Fibertech material for durability and a perfect finish and come to you prepainted to coordinate with factory paint. We can deliver the bags in a single color or with a second color coordinating graphic for just a little extra. You will see samples of the graphic above on some of the pics of the Charcoal bike.
Corbin saddlebags work with your stock exhaust pipes or a variety of aftermarket models. We've tested them to work with the Micron and Muzzy models shown. Many other brands may work as well as long as they have a profile lower than or equal to the stock cans. Installation of the saddlebags is simple and does not require any chassis modifications. All brackets and required hardware is included.
Also included is the slimmed down mud guard in Carbon-Fiber look ABS. This clean setup provides a nice look and is an integral part of the Hayabusa saddlebag installation although it is also available separately. Part of this system is a chromed license plate frame with integrated illumination to keep your bike nice and legal.
Combined with our saddle system, the Hayabusa becomes a formidable touring machine! Remember, although our saddlebags can hold an impressive amount of gear, it is never a good idea to overload your bike. Always conform to the weight limits outlined in your Suzuki owners manual to assure your safety.
A note about storage: Although 23.3 liters is a lot of storage space, the limiting factor to most items is the door opening. For example, the saddlebag could easily contain the average laptop computer with a 15" screen, but one will NOT fit through the door (the new generation of ultra-small Net Books will fit.) Rain suits, clothing, tools and many other common items are no problem... these bags will easily hold enough gear for a couple on a weekend getaway.
Manufactured of our exclusive Fibertech™ material for durability and a clean finish. Specially formulated for Corbin, Fibertech™ gives us very tight tolerances with minimal shrinkage so each part comes out true to the original design.
We use a quality gel-coat for a nice finish that doesn't show material weave. Color matched to the bike in either a single color or with a second color graphic to match the bike's fairing.
Corbin Beetle Bags come fully lined with a nice, thick grey liner on the inside to protect your cargo. Sure seal weather stripping around the doors keeps out the elements. Locking doors keep contents secure.
Capacity: 23.3 liters per side Overall width 36 inches Door opening: 7.5" x 12.5"
Capacity: 23.3 liters per side Overall width 36 inches Door opening: 7.5" x 12.5"
Includes mud guard and illuminated license plate frame as shown on the bikes above. This setup is also available separately, but your Hayabusa saddlebag set includes the whole deal.
Installation is simple using hardware and brackets that are included with the saddlebags. Complete illustrated instructions included. Suitable for the average shadetree mechanic to accomplish in an afternoon.
When loading heavy items into the bags, be sure to place them in carefully. "Thowing" heavy items like disc locks into the bags can create cracks or stress marks in the paint on the outside.
The fit and finish is top notch. Several people have seen the bags close up and they are all impressed by the finished product. I had many drivers that would slow down, trying to figure out what kind of bike I had... A few of those had people taking pictures.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
