    Not sure why you want the Varios? I got set for my G650GS and found them, used, a bit of a bother to operate for full and reduced capacity. The older version gets stiff and needs care to expand. It doesn't have the lever the newer ones have. I gave up on the ritual and leave mine expanded. If you use silicone to lube the membrane it makes a mess that sticks around a long time. Generally a fine bag for carrying things but can melt if not mounted properly and it touches the muffler. One corner on mine was melted a bit. I think they would suffer the same fate as my Suzuki bags did in a get off...they exploded on impact along with a JC Whitney top box. The plastic they are made of doesn't like strong forces. Other plastic boxes, bags, offer better protection for the stuff you carry. Pelican, Seahorse, etc. Probably some of the boxes from Home Depot are stronger too.
    I dropped the bike in the driveway and had to futz with the mount to get the bag to sit correctly again. The top pin bracket seems to have bent.
    Good luck with your search and hope they serve you well.

    They are different for the F800 vs the G650, not sure about the 650 but Shad makes the boxes for the 700/800 and they are solid. I've got a full set on my 800GS that are trouble free and no issues at all with exhaust clearance.

    I have a set that I would like to sell from my 2016 700 GS. BMW site says it will fit your 800 GS. Used but in good shape. Willing to give you a great price as you are on same coast as myself and shipping would be cheaper. PM me and we can make a deal.

    Hi, I’m also interested in a pair of vario side cases for the F700gs/F800gs. I also need the mounting racks. Please PM me if you have some for sale. I’m in Florida, so local would be better. Thanks!
