Good looking tool box! Have you experimented/thought about having the access door on the rear of the box so it can be accessed without removing the cases?

I did experiment with a rear door, but the side door provides way better access and I thought that was more important than access without removing the pannier. There is a guy building a nice looking box with a rear door, so if you like that option, it's available from Europe.

I think the side door is the way to go. I have one of the "boxes from Europe" and the rear door ends up being very awkward to get anything in and out of the box. My tool roll is too thick to fit without removing tools, and my hand doesn't fit easily into the box to dig things out.

For what it's worth, I'd rather take the side case off and have better access (and better security, likely).

Very easy installation. I just drilled the 3/16" holes in the two bottom tabs of my pannier rack, then drew dots through those holes on the toolbox tab and drilled those. Installation time was maybe 15 min. Yes, your mudguard will interfere with this set up but like they say, take it off or break it off. No, this set up will NOT interfere with the rear brake bleeder valve. I tried to capture that in the photos. Looking from behind, you'll see if the suspension were to travel that high, the valve would miss the toolbox to the left.

I fit my tool roll, air pump, patch kit, CO2 kit, plug kit, air pressure gauge. It holds a lot of stuff.

A good idea might be to emboss the aluminum with your logo. Get a stamp made or something.

I posted a pic of my new ADVgear toolbox on a r1200gsa fb forum and a guy said the other "european" box with the rear door won't fit the Cruz tool kit roll through it. Interesting.

I have a 2010 F650GS with a Tourtech aluminum bag set-up. I would like to share some modifications with you to see if one could be made for my bike. Could I communicate these changes to have this fit my bike? It appears the changes would be minimal.

Thanks
Randy
