$62.96 I followed the instruction on the prior page.
I just did this today, followed the instructions on post #372 I think it was. It worked great. I opted for expedited shipping so my surcharge was $8.98 not the $4.99 I see on other's price sheets, but I can live with that.
Today 2/18/2009 Here is what I got. Really wanted FREE shipping before ordering.
Spent an hour chatting up a rep, heck I was bored. But again I wanted FREE shipping and did not want to spend more than $50.
Will Keep looking. I am Cheap (out of work)
Just ordered the large one and it still works. If you're having problems with the order I strongly suggest you use the instructions in post #372.
Okay NOW it worked. Followed the instructions from #372 exactly
This is great, it worked perfectly! I can't resist a bargain but I may need a bigger garage.
This is great i just got the deal thank's for the heads up!!! My fulltime nightwoman will like her new backrest, do I need to buy anthing extra for mounting to a 1150 GS ?
Nope. It went on mine in about 15 minutes. There was a beer involved, otherwise it would have been quicker.
I bought and installed this case a few months ago on my KLR. It is busted up with multiple cracks in the plastic around the mounting slots after one offroad ride. It worked fine for commuting/street riding, but take it off before you take it down a fire road!
I had a very similar truck (used the same base plate) mounted on my 1150 GS and it took literally 10 min's to bolt right on.
Just got an email from JC whitney. "FRSHP50" is back on again.
Thanks, Fleg I will drink 1 beer too. Then after it's mounted see how many I can fit from the store in the new box.
I ordered mine today, $60 total. Thanks for the boob shot!
Mine got here today, broken. JC Whitney was actually pretty good to speak with on the phone. So far they are taking care of it.
How durable-slash-fragile are these things?
Is it worth even using them for travel? Have people seen them disintegrate on the trail or long tours?
Mine went to Alaska and back this summer on the back of my Transalp with my laptop, camera accessories, and extra clothes for the day in it with no problems. Only problem I've heard of was someone breaking the latch when they overstuffed it and tried to force the latch to cam down on all the gear.
Ah, thanks for that info, Dale. We've met several times on various HU and local rides. My friend Karen had a red '89 Transalp in Boulder for years.
I'm outfitting a KLR to go to Panama and back this summer. So, I want the cheapest overall cost, but still workable hardware. I got one of these trunks on teh sale, but I keep hearing of people breaking them. I guess some of that is the loose fitting rubber bumpers. I plan on doing a workaround to make a more secure fitment on the plate.
After a week of thinking I decided to try one of these top cases on my 'new to me' DL1000K7.
Followed post #372.
The bungee net went up to $5.99 for a total of $62.96.
Jury is still out. FedEx proved you can smash one with a fork lift. Mine arrive with a big gash in the box and both hinges broken completely off. JC whitney emailed a return label within 2 minutes of my call (Wednesday) and I'm waiting for the replacement box now.
