I got a set of red; unfortunately, I'm in DC on business so hopefully the boxes don't get lost until my return.proitlia has a close out on new OEM panniers 40% off. Corse1 posted recently.
Ducati ST 2004-06 Red Hard Bags (96722001AA) | Pro Italia
Red is listed on their site however i called them and they have other colors for the same price. I ordred a set of matte grey. It is a mystery to me if they are the non fango or givi ones. Will know when they arrive. I will be selling my set of 02 non fango's (matte grey). let me know if your are interested. I can send some photos and we can figure out a fair price. Thanks, Craig
hope things settle back in quickly; Pentagon City mall was surreal on Saturday, with "refugees" huddled around every power outlet, charging phones and laptops and escaping this ridiculous heat. Other friends just got out of town. On the one hand, I wish I had ridden my ST4 here from Nashville instead of flying in, but then the heat has been so bad (and I ride ATGATT) that it would be hell riding into DC. I just ended up renting a car for the duration (I get mild claustrophobia in crowded subway trains).power out until 5pm today. inside temp of house was 89 deg when i arrived back after leaving after the storm. thanks for asking.
The only difference is the top fastening which faces the other way round and you can adjust that according to the panniers you have with a little tweeking with a file. I would recommend some sort of thread lock as you dont want this catch to come loose...(Ses how I learned PaulI don't believe there's any difference of how they mount to the bike. When you mix Nofango cases with Givi mounts or vise versa is when you have problems. I have Nofango side bags with a Givi top case on my '04 with no problems.
Yep, I have two nonfango cases and one of each Givi/nonfango pannier brackets. I just flipped the top locking catch on one bracket upside down to fit the nonfango case. No filing necessary for me.The only difference is the top fastening which faces the other way round and you can adjust that according to the panniers you have with a little tweeking with a file.

Newer brackets were not better. The ones on my 2005 ST3 had to have the same modification done by the dealer during installation. They are still a pain to reinstall on the occasions when I do remove them.Hey, I'm curious, did you have to alter the bracket holes at all to allow them to bolt into the frame area? When I installed my new brackets on the ST2, I recall NEEDING to elongate the holes on the upper part of both L+R brackets. Just wondering if the newer stuff was made more accurate?
