    I fitted a Nanuk 21litre to my old twin, bolted it straigght to the Touratech rack I had.

    I have a Cariboucases kit on my new G650 which is the caribou rack and a Pelican 25litre.

    For my taste, all of these Peli Cases are too shallow as I'd like to have space to store a crash helmet. So same width, same depth, but taller. I wonder what model Peli Case that would be?:1drink

    What size Box in on the back ? Is that the pannier frame ordered from caribou cases? Are the side boxes the 35L ?

    Safe Riding!!

    I would guess the top box to be a Pelican 1520

    Hi,

    This peli-thread is very interesting!
    I read a lot about bolting the Peli on a TT rack; can anyone confirm it is on this rack: [​IMG] ?

    And what's the maximum weight that can be carried on this rack?
    Is it strong enough to carry the biggest peli's?

    That's the rack I am using with my Pelican 1520, and it is very solid, even when loaded, but then the 1520 is not that big of a case.

    Not sure what the upper limit would be ...

    The 1520 = 25,6 litres ,not so small.
    Just don't understand that the TT rack (and also the special TT pannier rack for topcases) is only allowed to carry 5 kg (11,2lb)???
    The case itself weights already 2,95kg (6,5lb).
    Or is TT playing it very safe?
