Rats. Are you willing to offer them as a special order item in order to make the sale for the overall system? You already have the jig, right? I'm in need of a matching set of side cases and top case, and really am not interested in something as large as a 35L box for a top case.

Please?

Hi Chris,

The 1520 size case did not sell well, and when Pelican made changes the case we did not make new jigs.

Howdy Roger.


My latch assembly on the pelican top case broke, causing a sweet tumble for the pelican case down the road.


How much for the latch? I need the knob you turn, to the tongue. the shaft broke in half.






thanks.

Hi Jaz,

The latches are $25, but this looks like a warranty issue to me. Please send me a PM, email or call and we'll figure it out.

Roger, I looked around but I couldn't find it. Can you post a picture of the bottom of the top case? I just want to see how much hardware sticks out and whether or not this would be a bitch to use as a travel case.

Also, any thoughts on also drilling holes in the rack in the appropriate locations as to allow the installation of the GIVI pyramid clamp and mushroom bolts for those of us who would like the top plate to pull double duty as to support both your top case as well as a GIVI for those of us who have them lying around?

Hi,

Note: Our top case design has changed and there are no brackets on the bottom.

If you already have the case, you will need our cargo plate for your bike, and then the top case latch system hardware (call me for prices).
Can't believe I never noticed this before, Roger, can you PM me a price on the latch system. Also the dimensions. I have a custom Pelican type case designed and molded for specialty equipment that I sometimes need to bring with me. Although it fits in my panniers just fine it does take up pretty much all the space in there. I already have your top plate.

How serendipitous that you quoted an answer to a post I made a while back, AND that I was coming to this thread to ask a question related to that reply.

Roger: I'm still planning on attaching an existing Hardigg-Storm case I have to my R100GSPD as a top case (it will look good with the 40L side bags). You mentioned designing a rear cargo plate for this bike, which would save me from making one custom or modifying a "universal" one. Any word on this - will this still be happening? I don't really need it for a few months yet, but I was curious as I might order that at the same time I order some Hepco-Becker compatible bags/mounts for another bike.

Thanks!

Hi Josh,

No plans to make a top case for the R100GS at this time. I've got two major projects to get done before spring, so I would not be able to get to this until later in 2009, and even then I would probably make very few, one for me for sure. Thank you for checking.

No plans for the TT racks. There are already a couple of vendors (including TT) that make the puck-style attach system for TT racks, and you can use this method with just about any case with a flat back (you can buy any of our cases with no holes or attach hardware and use them in this fashion). Frankly though, I am no fan of the puck system. FYI - We do make rugged attach systems for Hepco Becker, Givi and SW Motech racks.

Thank you.

Thank you Roger, as far as I'm concerned, that was above and beyond.



Your cases / mounting system are excellent.

New Hard Bolt Kit for Hepco Becker and SW Motech EVO 1/4-Turn Quick Release Racks

Introducing the Caribou Hard Bolt Kit for the newer Hepco Becker and SW Motech EVO side luggage racks with the 1/4-Turn Quick Release fastening system. The Caribou Hard Bolt Kit allows you to replace the 1/4-Turn Quick Release fasteners with regular stainless steel bolts for added strength and rigidity. The 1/4-Turn Quick Release fasteners work great for normal use, but since they are a spring loaded fastener, we recommend this Hard Bolt kit for heavy touring and off-road riding with side cases attached. This kit also provides added security over the 1/4-Turn fasteners making it more difficult for someone to remove the case from your bike. Makes a great add-on for our Caribou ALS Side Luggage Systems for Hepco Becker and SW Motech EVO racks since our ALS system provides lockable quick attach/release of the case without having to mess with the 1/4-Turn fasteners.

You get a set of 8 stainless steel M8 bolts, large washers, nylock nuts and counter-bored aluminum spacers....








Please visit www.cariboucases.com (search under the "Cases for Hepco Becker" or "Cases for SW Motech" categories) for pricing and to order. Thank you!

Man, there's gotta be a way for me to adapt one of these systems to my NX650. What I need to do is go to Boulder with the bike, a torch, welder, and a checkbook. :-D
