Hello again Roger,

Do you have an idea when you will be putting the KLR system on your web site?

And how many days would it take to get it delivered to So. Cal? Or is it quicker to have it delivered to So. Az.

I am moving out of state and it is a question for me if I could get the top case setup and get it mounted before I ride to my new temp. home.

TIA

I'll have it up on the website by the end of this week. Got a backlog of orders to fill today, then I'll finally get it done. Thanks for your patience.

Roger, thought you might like this shot. It's JackHole at the Sandblast rally this weekend. You'll notice where his number plates are attached...





I had a chance to check out the setup while they were prepping the bikes, and was extremely impressed by the overall quality, as well as how clean the racks looked without the bags.


If I EVER get a bike that you kit, it'll be my luggage of choice. No Question.

That is cool! I think I'll cut and paste it to my web site gallery. Thanks Nate.

KLR 650 Rear Top Case & Cargo Plate System Now Available

The KLR 650 Caribou Rear Top Case & Cargo Plate system is now available. For the folks that pre-ordered your order will ship early this week, for new orders there is a 2 week lead time as we ramp up production. In other words, we are a bit hand-to-mouth on these until mid-March, then the lead time will go back to our normal 3-4 days. A quick-release mechanism secures the case to the cargo plate in seconds. Cargo plate (15" wide x 10" long) is aircraft aluminum, attached to the bike on steel tube rails for ultimate stiffness and strength. All metal parts are powder coated or stainless steel. This is a bolt-on system, no need to drill or modify the bike. Here are the pics...

1550

Cargo Plate, note the tubular steel rails running from the front-most bolts all the way under the plate to the back.




Please visit www.cariboucases.com for pricing and more details. Top case & cargo plate systems for the V-Stroms, F650GS/Dakar, 1150/1100GS, and 1200GS are on their way this spring. Thank you!

Sure, give me a call 303-786-8947. F650GS/Dakar version needs some final welding and then to powder coat, so it will be a few weeks.

Damn! I held out as long as I could... Bought a set for La Donna's F650GS for christmas (they're great), and when I spoke with you, it sounded like you had scrapped plans for the DR650.

I went with the Happy Trails SU and Pelican 1550's. I'm not totally stoked about the rear brace/"bumper" ... I may have to upgrade.

Any idea how will your design work with the proMoto Billet rear rack?

[hijack]The Moto-sport pannier racks for a DR650 don't have that "feature" and are very solid. [/hijack]

I considered those, as well as the non-SU "original" version of the Happy-trails racks. I like the idea of a cross brace in the rear... I think it adds strength... that is part of the appeal for me of the Caribou system... it's very solid, with a rear cross brace, and looks good.

I'm just whining, I'll shut up now.

We had to go back and re-design the 1200GS system to also fit the new Adventure model. It will be ready in late March.

hey roger:

will you install your lock system in other Pelican case sizes? I am looking at a cube (for work) and a gun case (for fun).

Our current lid lock system fits the 1550. Each case is a bit different where the lock needs to go. The ribs and features have to be in the right places to fit our current lock system. I don't plan on making different lock systems to fit lots of cases if I can avoid it.
