Sorry Rodger but I have another question, I have read that the 36L isn't as tough as the 35L is this right? and if they are why do you stock two boxes that are pretty much the same size? Is the 36 a pelican?

I thought I had decided on box size and just needed to choose witch rack to go with but there are so many options with your luggage and rack combinations that its hard make the right choice!!!

Thanks again,

Chef

The 36L is a Pelican Storm case, the 35L is a Pelican case,a nd the 40L is an SKB case. The 36L and 40L cases have easier to use push-button activated latches as compared to the press-down latches on the 35L, and have a smooth matte black finish. The 36L case is lighter by 1lb as well. They all meet the same MIL Spec for impact, UV/Chemical resistance and Waterproofness, and are all very tough cases. Our field data shows no one case is better than the other. You really can’t go wrong with either. Please see our video for more information.

Hope this helps, thnk you.

34L top case as a backrest?

Hi Roger,

I'm interested in buying your 34L top case system for my BMW 2011 R1200 GSA. I was wondering; how does this case work as a backrest for a passenger? Would you have any pics showing how this case looks on this bike looking from the front of the bike?

Thanks...

Hello,

We are working on a backrest pad for the 34L case. Should be done in a few weeks, and it can be added later if you buy the case now (no holes to drill or anything like that). I don't have a photo of the 34L case on the 1200GS viewed from the front of the bike.

Thank you.

New Accessories, Special Shipping for Canadians

Hello,

We have two new Caribou accessories:

Tie-Down brackets made of 1/8" powder coated steel, low profile, super strong, perfect shape for straps, all hardware is included...




SOLAS GRade Reflective Tape Kits. We tested several types and brands of reflective tape on the market, and found this to be the best in terms of reflectivity and staying stuck to our cases that have a low surface energy (hard to get things to stick to them). The 2" width wraps around the outer radius corners of our cases and provides front, side, corner and rear visibility...


Attention Canadians! We now have a 3rd Buy Button on our web site devoted to Canadian orders that offers a lower shipping cost to Canada as compared to the rest of the world outside the USA.

Visit our web site www.cariboucases.com or call 303-786-8947 M-S 8:00am-5:00pm MT to order.

Thank you!
-roger

The side rack included with this system is the Hepco Becker "Lock-It" rack - very strong, high quality, and most of the rack may be removed in a few minutes via quarter-turn fasteners. You can also use our Hard Bolt kit to convert this rack to a regular bolted version.




More photos to follow in the coming weeks. Thank you!

-roger
Any new pics of this rack set-up? Are the two side joined together under the rear flap? These are on my very short list of ST farkels.

Thanks, TH

extra fuel with pelicans

Anyone mount the rotopax to their cases?
Specifically their side cases?
What about a rotopax or gas canister on their side case?
I'd like to see some photos of that.
Roger, do you have any?

I'm trying to brain storm how to take extra fuel with me.

Thx.

Hello,

Sorry but no new photos at this time, it is looking like August before we can get the super Tenere photos done. The rear of the rack is indeed attached side-to-side with a rear cross brace (as all Hepco Becker Racks are designed).

Hope this helps, thank you.

We don't have photos of the Rotopax attached to our cases, but some have reported that they have done it to the rear-facing flat surface of the case using some spacers (you have to get out past the rib of the lid/body seal)

Do you think adding 1 or more rotopax mounts like the pic below would weaken the case somehow?

You are not going to hurt the case, but remember those BMW nutserts down in the bowels of your rear tail section on the F800GS? In other words, you are limited by the BMW tail section design, and you know very well about that But I know you OMGWTF, and I know you are brave with endless resourcefullness. I think each gallon of fluid is 6lbs. Its not the best place up high for that kind of weight, assuming you are thinking of the top case.

Awww...thanks for the compliment .

I still have my doubts about the nutserts I had to install myself, but so far it's been fine. I generally keep my topcase reserved for some food, rain/heated gear, gadgets, chargers, water.........so I keep it lighter than my side cases. I see your point, though. The nutserts are just aluminum. I'm sure they would break free of the subframe under stress.


What if I mount the rotopax forward to the topcase? If I snug them together, it may be secure. I could snug them together using the brackets that you sell. If the rotopax moves a lot, if could break the quarter turn fasteners in the topcase. Most of the weight will supported by the seat,except when moving forward, braking, hitting bumps.....
