Would be looking for them to be made in raw aluminum. Can you let me know if it is possible and, if so, what would be the price and delivery time, and if you need more info. I already have panniers and would be mounting the tool boxes in the wide space between the panniers and rear wheel.

OK let me know and thanks,

Danny
Thanks, Danny.

I can make those this week and have 'em in the mail by Wednesday. You will have to provide me with dimensions, where the mounting flange needs to be, etc.

Raw aluminum, removable lid with 2) small rotary draw latches with padlock ears will be $125.

Raw, hinged lid with a Protex keyed, over-center draw latch will be $150.

^ Plus shipping.

- Kirk.

I've got the Piaa LP530s, great lights.

Nice job on the mounts too. Wish I was lived closer.

Mike's goodies come back from powder.



KLR top box all back together. She now looks like the proper pack mule. Ahhhh. Much better. Trying to rid the world of milk crates one KLR at a time.



Of course, the only reason I have bags this nice in the first place is because I built them. I'd probably sport a milk crate myself if it weren't for that.



Lower bevels allow access to the OEM grab handles. That's important to me for dragging the bike around my small garage when it gets in the way.



The hinges on the bags and top box are a bit of a mix-up, but it allows me to road test what I'm making.







I'm happy with this set-up, but I'm already thinking about taking it all apart, selling the whole enchilada, and starting over. I really like how Mike's ST bags turned out, and I would leave mine raw aluminum and use black hardware. I think it looks pretty sweet that way.

Just thinking out loud. I'll probably log a few thousand miles before I do anything.

I'm hoping to have Mike's set-up together any day now...until then.

The timing on the bags is actually good -

I have it apart at the moment servicing it after the trip to Death Valley.

It'll be Tuesday at the earliest before it's ready to roll.

Some great geometry on them KLR pannys and the awesome mega topbox.

I agree, the fatty KLR is best co-guided in and out of the garage and such by the back handles....
I think that is a swell idea and I try to maintain that perspective myself when choosing luggage format.

I think you will get more KLR business if you can assure us that the rigs serve dual duty

Sounds good. If I don't hear back from him by Monday, I'll give him a call.

I'm glad the sidestand worked out for you.

That same question came up while building Kevin's 'Strom. Believe me, I tried! (to no avail - boooo!)

But, I can source a good bottle opener and install them no problemo! As a matter of fact, I want one, too!I need to write things down so I don't forget!
