Thanks for the picture, but I was inquiring about the top loaders.
Oh,ok. At least this will give you the general idea on how the positioning works out. I haven't seen ant pics of the top loaders installed on an 1190.
Thinking of getting a set of pelicans for my F650GS twin.
Which bags should I get to make them look symmetrical?
The F650GS Twin has a one-sided exhaust, so you'll never really get a symmetrical look. Putting a narrower case on the exhaust side actually makes matters look worse, and you give up capacity. Our cases come as a set with the same size case on each side. The side rack positions the left side out about 1" further than the right. Hope this helps.
Maybe this has been asked and I just missed it. I have ordered a 2014 Super Tenere Standard and am hoping your 35L Storm top case and rack will work. Have you had the opportunity to assess this by chance?
I have not checked to ensure there was no difference from 2013. I'll have to get over to the local dealer, but I don't think there is any problem. Can you send me a photo of the rear rack on the 2014? I could probably tell from a photo.
Can you tell much by any of the photos at this link?
Well, we all know what the switch gear looks like , but as far as the rear tail section it looks just like the 2013 bike, no changes as far as I can tell in the photos. I'll try to get over to the dealer today.
Many thanks! Good luck finding one at the dealer. They seem to be fairly scarce.
I was just at the dealer today and the 2014 Tenere rear tail rack looks just like the earlier ones.
They also had the new V-Storm 1000 sitting right next to the new Tenere. The V-Strom looked smaller than the Tenere. It also had a very clean instrument panel area. Pretty nice bike. No time for test ride today.
Thanks for checking. As soon as I know when my Tenere is going to come in (slow getting to the Memphis, TN area) I'll be placing my order for this top case.
I looked closely at the Suzuki. Real nice bike, but like the shaft drive and cruise control. I will do some off road, but there is a lot of slab out there to cover to get to the places I want to ride. I also tour with some Harley guys. No off road for them!
I'm very interested in your locking Pelicans but am pretty sure I'd rather have (slightly) smaller cases. Do you sell your locks separately and/or will they work with Pelican 1500 cases?
Yes, our locks do work with Pelican 1500 cases. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Super happy with my side cases, I will be calling you for a matching top box soon. thanks again. bete.
I've had my cases for almost 2 years and 15,000 miles and couldn't be happier. Roger has been super responsive and helpful in indulging my whims (smaller than standard cases, locks and kits for other projects to set up my R1200GS). Great product, great support. Thanks, Roger!
I bought from the initial run back in 2003? Still working like a champ. I've replaced a latch after a get-off and updated them with the fabric side panels. Great product that stands the test of time.
How timely. I too am in need of a lock for the lid of my 1500.
Your "Caribou DIY External Latch Top Case Mount System" is listed for 1520 or 1550 cases. Will it work with 1500 also?
Based on the 8.875" and 8.5" dimensions shown in the installation manual, it'll fit on the flat space on the bottom of the 1500.
What brand/model is that top box? I don't recall having seen one in that proportion before.
Disregard that. It must be this one: Pelican iM2306 Storm Case. I've never really looked at the Storm cases, only at the traditional Pelican cases.
Thanks Roger for meeting me the other day. Not sure the round trip to Boulder from Denver was worth the $7 in shipping I saved, but it was nice to meet you. If I seem frazzled
I've inspected the kit and it looks to be very high quality and I'm sure it will be a breeze to install. I'll snap a photo and post it after I get my case mounted up, and maybe I'll make a video of the install if I can find a camera man.
