Wish I had a pic. At the top, on the inside of the case, there's a groove that hooks over a full length rail. FWD lower corner has receptacle that fits over a square-shaped, steel peg. No cross brace in the rear. Removal is quick-release. Closing the cases is a bit fiddly until you get the hang of it.

Nice S10 (for a blue one, anyway)
I ran the first K60 rear tire 8,500 and had to put on a new one to go on a trip , but it would have gone anouther 1,000.
I am still on the first K60 front so it will be a while for I know about it.
That is a ALTrider bash plate.

[QUOTE=RidingUpAndDown;18029015]Yes let's see it.

Lets try then

After

Another angle

Think it needs to be matt and not satin and also spotted another inmates modified version which looked better wish i had seen it before cutting motivation was to reveal the Remus and reduce the bulky looking original while still retaining the protection for throwovers (legs and luggage) and strength.

Thanks, that's kinda how the vario bags attached to the gs. I read a report that the Yamaha bags don't snap all the mounts off in a small wreck. Any of you guys have the varios and now the yammie bags and can compare?

The Yamaha cases will jump off the mounts in the event of a crash or other strong impact. When they are pounted they may feel a little flimsy, but they wont damage the mounts, and the cases themselfs are really strong (stronger than most aluminum cases). Regarding the locks, their operation requires a little habit, and you should put some threadlock on the bolts

If you smack the Yamaha cases into the scenery fast enough they'll break.. they arent designed to be crash bars after all. I suspect by their design the case will suffer breakage 1st (as they are plastic) and the frame mounts will be intact, as they are steel mounted to alloy. I think someone in SA trashed a case on some early jaunt when the S10 was 1st released.

What I suspect that will break first is the part of the case that hugs the top mount. Anyway I've seen alu cases to deform and leak with less severe crashes than those which caused my OEM cases to pop out

Sea level in Baja has got me convinced to do the reflash. I loved the extra power.
