I emailed, got a response & phone number to Easy Brackets tech support. I called. The man was very nice, informed, and willing to fully explain everything.

I asked about their product for the Mean Streak.
They do not, and will not be making one.

Reason: Kawasaki decided to use 6mm fender bolts for the struts.

Every other bike, he said, uses either 8mm or 10mm bolts, and 6mm is not strong enough to hold an additional 20lbs of weight.

There you have it folks.

Too bad, I like the :idea: .

I've been very happy with my LeatherLyke bags. A bit spendy, but tough - dropped the bike a couple weeks ago, and the only thing that touched the ground was the left side bag, with no damage to it. They pop on and off in a minute, they lock, and you can always stick a liner in for easy transport of whatever you're carrying. Took me about 15 minutes to mount the bags initially.

The weight limit for the LeatherLyke bags is 20 lbs per bag. I'm sure I have exceeded that, but I've had no problems at all. These things are really tough, and the mounting hardware is stout, too.
