Shad P3 (New Katana)

so according to Shads website they are already offering the P3 side pack rails for the new Katana ... but the GSX-S gets shafted :-(


My question is ... Since the Katana (from what I understand) utilizes the same frame as the GSX-s, what are the chances that the rails will fit the GSX-s with out major modification

That's a tough one, common sense says it should, but from the pics the pillion pegs mount to the frame in a completely different position, so possibly Suzuki added Shad mounting points not found on the GSXS. Contact Suzuki customer service see if they can provide the answer.

yeah after comparing bare frame pics of both side by side it looks like the rear pillion frame and rear peg supports are completely different
