there is a wide range in both prices and style of bags for the custom. What ever fits the classic will fit the custom. There is also a good choice for brackets for these bags. Ghost brackets to the stock Kawasaki ones which can be adapted to fit most bags.

It all comes down to personal preference. My bags on both of my bikes are Mutazu ..http://www.mutazu.com/ and i have used the stock Kawasaki LT brackets as they offer good support and a 3 point installation fix.

Have a look in the 900 pics section for bikes with bags, most guys will have the brand of these in there signatures.

good luck

cheers Maurice

I have the Viking bags and very pleased with them. The price was excellent.

Life is a journey, enjoy the ride.

I've got the Cycra Hardstreets slims on my custom. The capacity is just enough for use as a daily commuter. The locks and latches are pretty much entirely plastic but for around 500 with brackets I have no complaints.

I had those bags on my 900 Classic. Excellent quality. You'll be very happy with them.
