+1 and HURRY!
Getting there. Too busy riding !!
Tomorrow I'm into the dealer for electrical problem. I'm not getting full charging when riding and I have burned out my 2nd set of PIAA bulbs for the 1100's since February:eek1
So this weekend I'll get them mounted and photos to follow
Make sure and I mean MAKE SURE you do not tighten anything regarding the mount until you have it level, balanced and square.... Have fun installing the mount! We did two of them.
Thanks for the advice, sounds good.
I'm getting closer. Boxes are now in the garage next to the bike
Yikes, that is pretty wide. I would be concerned to.
I just got my Safari's mounted up and am looking at tail racks. No special needs, but want something that works with the case mounts and is big enough to strap a medium sized duffel bag on.
Definitely too wide. I clipped my left pannier on a bush last week while on an ATV rail, and it took me down... Broke my rack on the left side, too! :eek1
I'll definitely be switching to Jesses when I can afford it.
The longer I own the Jesse bags the more I like (love) them.
my 10" jesse's are the same width as my bars and the racks are pretty tough,so are the bags and they can be straightened too! I know!
i know there is another jesse thread on here, but in that 1 i think they were listed as being the narrowest with the most capacity.
I had Jesse's on the 1150GS and F650 Dakar I owned and I found they worked very well. Having met Al Jesse, I had the opportunity to learn of his travels all over the world and to understand the cases he designs and builds are derived from that experience.
Jesse Safari work well on the 650....not too wide, not too big and you can always add a nice Wolfman Dry Bag to increase your capacity! Love our top box too!
Cases went on fine but I'm having trouble with the top case rack.
I think they sent me the wrong spacers. There is this much space.
Cases look good
You have the rear bracket on back to front, the arrows should face forward.
just gonna say that...your top mount is on the brackets incorrectly.
Hey Thanks !!! Just went out to the garage and changed the bracket around and all is happy
Next step is to mount the plate to the top box. Little nervous about drilling into my nice new cases.
just make sure you mark the box with something you can see on the black....center the mount...mark the holes, use a metal drill bit and BoB's your Uncle. They look good....that one inch makes quite the difference on the can side!
I still like the narrow profile of the 8". GREAT CASES!
what is this drilling in boxes you all speak of? We're waiting on two Safari top boxes. Are we talking about drilling the bottom of the top box bottom for mounting the top box plate?
yeah you have to attach the bottom mount to the top box via drilling for screws and bolts...not a big deal really......
some helpful info:
If you spray a little silicone on the black Delrin (the long black block on the bottom of the box) it will help with sliding the box, or use WD40 and use it on the hinges and the mount too!
