    My storage Pod for the 660Z is finally finished. Its been a year sice I started the upgrade to my first attempt.
    It's 18 cu/litres of extra storage space under the seat for tools and all the important things you would like to keep on the bike permanently for commuting, First Aid Kit, Rain Suit and all the tools for the bike.
    On long distance travel it would be extremly useful allowing your panniers to be free of heavy tools bouncing around and enough space for spares, spare tubes etc.
    There is a bulkhead dividing the the pod with access from the rear and from under the seat which provides a relatively secure spot for valubles.
    The Pod will sell for R3000 South African, excluding shipping and will include Tail Tidy, 1 Tail Light, 1 set of Indicators (for the Pod) with Resistors and all the nuts bolts and spacers needed.
    I would reduce the price by R500 if you were to source your own lights.

    Another pic, with hazards on. I've added an extra set of flush indicators for more visibility.

    Another angle. I would also like to add that the Pod blends into the bike and is really not that noticeable. Added an extra tail/brake light.

    Hans, the Pod is divided into two halves with a bulkhead which runs across the middle. One access is from the back as can be seen in the pictures, the other access is from under the seat which is a lockable area.

    The Pod is currently 285 Euro's and shipping to the EU would be around 30 Euro's.

    Hey Geoff.
    Andy660 here.
    I fitted Mark b s
    Pod and he gave me the other one for the labour.
    I made a thin stainless steel plate to mount the relays.
    I cut the battery holder off and left that std on the bike.
    We had to change his exhaust as he only runs one pie on the left.
    Im doing mine tomorrow.
    My bike has twin Scorpion Exts

    Will cut ans change them too.
    BRILIANT Carbon Fibre pod.
    So well made.
