After you get all the bills paid whats the chances of the XRL getting a set?
Or any chance of you offering a do it yourself package with all the parts in kit form?

I just had a conversation with a riding buddy about this. The Honda XR's have an aluminum alloy subframe, and it is very light. Have to be careful about the weight back there. Might require some type of steel tubing sub frame struts to beef it up. Might have to go with smaller Pelican cases too. It will end up costing a lot.

The xr650r has a aluminum sub but the xr650l has a steel sub and a few places to mount brackets. smaller cases would be a must. Just a idea, I know a few people would be interested the XR-Ls dont have much in the lines of luggage available.

Ahhh! I see, thank you for explaining the XR frame details. This and the DRZ would be good bikes to do lighter/smaller luggage. A good summer '06 project.

This system looks pretty darn nice. I have an Adventure and have been considering getting some bags for a while.

One thing I do like about having a Givi topcase is the ability to stick my helmet in it and secure it. Will you have a topcase big enough to do this available?

can't wait for the f650 model to show!

Is there any chance it would be compatible with the staintune oval exhaust or the two brother's exhaust? I can understand that you will just want to have compatibility with the adventurepipe and the stock pipe. but you might get some extra business if it works with the two others i mentioned. definitely mine!

Best of luck with development and sales!

A helmet will not fit in the Pelican 1550 top case. A helmet will fit in the 1660 case, but this will span the pillion area.

Question

I'm looking for luggage for my GS adventure at the moment Pipe, this could be just the thing! A few questions, what dimensions are the 1550 cases and is it possible to fit a larger set (41 L ?) or maybe just a larger box on the right hand side like the TT's?
Thanks
Bill

'Piper,
Pretty sure that this plea makes it unanimous that the V-Stroms get the next kit. I've got the 650 if it makes any difference; dunno if there are rack diff's between 650/1000 because of the the single-pipe 650 and dual-pipe 1000.
Good looking builds!
Will you offer case-size choices, colors, etc? Don't mean to complicate your inventory but maybe a pre-select and pre-pay option wouldn't hang you out to dry, either.
So far you've got the most appealing set-up for what I'm looking for: Alaska tough and just big enough.
I'm hitting the Seattle CW show in Dec for the sole purpose of optioning my bike, and unless there's something amazingly compelling there, put my on your sure-thing list.
Happy winter, and hurry if you can!

The 1550 cases are 20-11/16" x 17-3/16" x 8-9/16" deep (external dim's). 34.5 liter inside volume. That's as big as you can go without removing the passenger foot peg entirely, and keeping them up high enough. There is not a deeper Pelican case than 8-9/16" that has the correct other dim's (hxw), so making a bigger one on the right side is not possible. But, I am working on a small tool case to piggy back on the the inside wall of the 1550.

Over the years I've pared down my load, lighter seem to work better. 34.5 liter per side with at least 34 liter top case carries everything. My tent and a few other things go into a dry-bag strapped to the pillion (serves as a nice backrest). I always get into situations where I wished I had a lighter load.
