If they are indeed our cases that have our brackets on them (or are at least drilled for our brackets) then no problem, we have the racks in stock. Please send and email to roger@cariboucases.com and we'll take it from there. Thank you.

BTW - The 6-week delivery time only applies to certain Hepco Becker racks that we sell, usually the older model bikes.

Here is a fantastic example of our 36 Liter cases with our ALS mount system on a Hepco Becker rack courtesy of Dave U and his Ducati Multi Strada.....







The whole kit, Cases, ALS Mounts, Hepco Becker racks is available from www.cariboucases.com. One stop shop. We put a lot of effort into the customer service part of the business, and many of you know how important this is when getting the Hepco Becker products out of Germany, through the distributor in CA, and into your hands. We recently added Hepco Becker crash bars and engine guards to our product line, so you can get these from www.cariboucases.com too.

Thank you Dave for the pics, that is one very nice looking bike

Caribou Rack with Givi Topcase

Has someone used the standard Caribou racks on an F800GS together with a Givi topcase before? Does it work?

Short answer is no. Givi cases have a different latching system (the plate it latches to is perpendicular to the face the case is mounted to), whereas the caribou ones are parallel. You'll see this if you compare the caribou plate to a givi top plate.

I know that the Givi top plate is different from the Caribou one. I'm still planning my luggage system and the idea was:

- have the original Caribou luggage rack and the 36l cases
- DON'T use the Caribou top case plate
- install a Givi top case plate and a Givi top case

The reasoning behind that is:

- no top case for travelling
- no side cases for commute
- Givi top case fits two helmets

I just got the F800GS and I want to use it as an "all around tool", meaning, commute, travel, ... so I want as much flexibility as possible.

Hello,
You can add a Givi top plate and case up there, but you may need some spacers and longer bolts to allow for our upper cross brace.

i assume youre talking about Pelican cases...for my fz6, i have purchased a used givi sidecase rack, and plan on bolting the Pelicans to the rack directly. they wont be quick release, but then again, i dont have a need to take them off quickly.

i havent installed them yet though, not sure when i will.

Hi Pirate,

Check out the section on our web site www.cariboucases.com titled "Cases for Givi Racks" and I think this will provide what you need.

I have a 2004 FZ6 and am awaiting the arrival of a Hepco-Becker side rack set and a top rack. I haven't decided what boxes to use, but I'm leaning toward the Caribou 35L. I'd like the top loaders, but Caribou recommends them for liter bikes.

I'll keep you updated if I go the Caribou route.
