There is no modification to the bike required. No drilling, no welding, no mods, no relocation of turn signals or any other part.

We'll not be doing a system for the DR650. You can still get some other rack system and bolt our Pelican/Caribou cases on there. We sell the cases with the lid locks, lid lanyards and internal retention straps.

Same case/bracket system as that used on the 1150GS. As with the 1150GS system, the F650GS system uses 3/4" 16ga steel tubing rail with two lower cleats (front and rear) forming a solid luggage frame. Rear cross-bar creats a strong box structure.

Roger:

Got the Caribou system for my '07 F650GS in two days! Took my time mounting them to the bike (had to make a trip to the auto parts store to get some loctite) but now they're on there and I couldn't be happier!

I rode around with different size loads and I cannot even tell they are on the bike. I had a little trouble with one of the rear bracket screws, but once I got it tight, this system is rock solid. A buddy of mine with Zegas looked very envious of my (your) ingenious system!

Thanks for a very nice, well-engineered product. I will be preaching the word for you. I need to save some money for some liner bags now!!!

I'm working on the 1520 as a side case option. That's about as small as you could go.

Sorry, they will not fit.

Wicked Mods necessary for the KLR?

Will I have to modify or adjust anything on my stock KLR to mount the Caribou Luggage system?

Your system looks great and I can't wait to order, just trying to get a heads up on any modifications I may need to do to my bike, a 2004 KLR.

Thanks

Hi Jeremy,

No mods required, bolts right on. None of the Caribou systems require modifying the bike.

caribou for photographers

Just last week, before I discovered the Caribou system, I was telling my friend how great it would be for me to find a way to mount Pelican cases to my motorcycle.

I have been a photographer for years and lately have been really wanting to get a Pelican case for my equipment. I put off buying camera equipment recently in order to buy my first motorcycle. I've been riding for a month now and love it.

So now I am back to thinking about camera equipment again which is why I was talking to my friend about Pelican cases. While surfing the web I came across the Caribou systems and the epiphany occured! The best of both worlds was before my eyes! Camera equipment that doubles as motorcycle equipment! Perfect

Now if I could remember where I planted that money tree so i can pick some fresh cash.

Caribou/Pelican 1520 cases

There's been some interest in mounting 1520 cases to the Caribou 1550 racks. Here's a photo of that system on my GS650. I think the 1520's are more appropriate for day to day use. The 1550's are great forthe big trips.
This is just a test case. I'll include more photos on the finished product.

Yes, nice job.

So here's the plan for the 1520 as side cases. The case bracket currently is a pain to make it fit the smaller 1520. In early 2007 I plan to make a change to the case bracket to allow the 1520 case to fit without having to shave off any plastic parts of the 1520. Same bracket will fit both cases, keeps the costs down you know.

But first, I've got to get the quick-release top case and rear plate done for December. I know I am late, but I built up a honey-do list this past year that would give Bob Villa a heart attack .

I am another F650 Dakar rider that has the sw-motech quick release racks already, that really wants YOUR modified cases on them smaller size for me); other readers have said similar things - any plans then, otherwise how can we mount 'em?

Regards
