Oh! Wish that brake light was available when I purchased a few months ago! But I think it will still end up on my bike soon.

No more than 15 lbs (6 kg) is our recommendation. However, we also recommend that you not exceed the carrying capacity of your bike.

Thinking about getting a set of 35L Pelicans for my '12 R1200GS. Anyone know if they are equal or less than the width of the handlebars when mounted w/ the Caribou Cases rack? Tried searching but found nothing.

Any deals going on a rig for a 2012 GS to make room for 2013 gear??

Thanks!

I might add that the PDF file for install directions ref. the H-B racks on the Triumph Explorer 1200 have been unavailable for some time. That link on the site 40L case site brings you to an error "not found" message. Interested in seeing those. Thanks.

Seems to come up fine when I click on the .pdf file for the 40L system and HB racks. Maybe your browser cache needs to be cleared?

The side case system will be about 38"-39" wide.

New Top Loading Caribou Motorcycle Side Cases

Introducing the new Caribou 25L Top Loading side case system! Based on the 25 Liter Pelican Storm iM2435, this system offers adventure and dual sport riders a nearly indestructible top loading case that is still narrow and light weight.

FEATURES:
-Easy to assemble turn-key System, no drilling or modification to the bike.
-Nearly indestructible top loading Pelican Storm cases with a heavy duty watertight O-ring lid seal - will not crack or shatter like hard plastic, will not dent & leak like aluminum luggage. These cases come with a limited lifetime guarantee.
-Cases are pre-drilled for optimum performance & safety with pre-installed waterproof lid locks (if you prefer undrilled cases just ask). Wheels and telescoping handle are easily removed.

-Caribou quick attach/release system holds the case tightly on the rack to eliminate all case movement. Our locking latch is fully adjustable to account for wear and to keep the system tight and secure forever
-Our latch is on the outside of the case, so no need to open and unload case to access pucks or bolts. It is field replaceable and designed to release the case from the bike in a hard crash thereby protecting the bike's subframe and luggage rack.
-Super strong Hepco Becker side luggage racks - the best fit and most durable side racks available. The "Lock-It" version allows one to remove most of the rack in a few short minutes leaving behind small unobtrusive attach plates, and still offers superior strength over any other rack on the market.

- All mount components are made of high strength powder coated steel with bushing material to prevent metal-on-metal wear. No brittle plastic parts to break.
-Passenger Friendly Design - plenty of room for passenger's legs and feet on passenger peg.
- 38-39" width across outside of cases at widest point, depending on the bike.
- Total weight of the side case system is approx. 39 lbs including cases, racks, hardware, and all bracket components
- Case dimensions 14" (356mm) Deep, 2" (51mm) Deep Lid, 6.5" x 17.5" (165mm x 445mm) Top Opening, 5.5" x 16.5" (140mm x 419mm) at bottom.
- Case Color is Black only

Here are some photos, more to come later...





Handle nicely recessed so you may strap things to the top...


Wheels and telescoping handle removed for lighter weight and less width...


Caribou hardware....


T6 aluminum backing plate with special coating...

To order please visit www.cariboucases.com or go here.... http://cariboucases.com/-Complete-Side-Luggage-Systems/25L-Top-Loading-Storm-Side-Luggage-Pannier-Systems/

36L Top Load vs 25L Top Load

We've had several folks ask us to compare our 36L Pelican Top Loading cases to our new 25L Storm Top Loading cases. Here you can see that they are nearly the same height, and a little shorter length. However the 25L cases are much more narrow and therefore offer a nice narrow width across on the bike....

25L upper, 36L lower in the photo


36L left and 25L right in the photo...


Also, when you remove the wheels and handles from the 25L Top Load cases they are only a little over 6 lb each (without mount hardware). That's really light.

I'd be happy to answer any other questions about the new cases. Thank you!

Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I have Wolfman racks on my bike. The side loading is really what has kept me from using your cases. I've been using wolfman soft saddlebags happily, but these have me thinking.

Are you familiar with the Wolfman racks? Would your mount work on the Wolfman racks? Alternatively, with the wheels/handles removed, would I be able to use pucks or the Wolfman kit?

Interesting..

You would have to use the pucks for these kind of racks. I guess you could also use U-bolts. A rack like these without a rear crossbar is not recommended.
