Tail rack has got to go.

alright, read through the pages but after reading page 1,545,340 i can't remember what i read on page 1. Love the racks, love the luggage, don't love my factory tail rack so much. SO my question is for anyone with an answer. When i purchase the kit for a 2011 KLR will I be able to fit (for example) the BBQ rack, or the moose top rack so on and so forth, in conjuntion with the caribou kit? I assume the kit uses some of the same mounting points as the factory tail rack and if that is removed and replaced with another will this work? Basically I want the moose expidition rack...only caribou. Hope I haven't made an ass of my self.

Should be no problem, but you may need longer bolts that go down through the holes near the tool kit cubby because that's where most side and top case systems get bolted into the subframe on this bike. Be aware these bolt holes are blind (or bottom tapped), so you need the exact length of bolt to get it right. We supply two M6 bolt lengths with our kit, one set longer to account for our top case plate. Some riders prefer to through-drill these two holes and put nylock nuts underneath.

Hey Roger, I don't think I ever wrote back to thank you for the special-order OD Green 1440s. You tried to talk me out of it, but I think we can agree they don't look half bad. No melting or discoloration so far and it hasn't exactly been a cool summer here in Texas.

I agree, it is really not bad at all. Somehow it all works!

Yes, that is a 25L case in the very first photo of the KLR 650.

So Roger if I understand correctly the top case mounting plate will mount directly onto a 2012 f800gs without any other hardware. Correct?

If you buy a complete 25L Top Case System for instance for the F800GS it does come with everything including square tube rails, nuts, bolts, washers, and spacers you need to attach the cargo plate to your bike.

One more question: Will the mounted top case interfere with panniers and the requisite rack should I need them later? Thanks for your feedback!

If anyone has mounted the top loaders on a tiger 800 i would looooove to see the pictures.

Particularly from the back with the HB racks (that's precisely the setup i am considering).

/fingers crossed

For this bike you will need to find a side rack, we do not make side racks for the DR. Then you can use a pair of our "Cases Only" that have the lid locks, lid lanyards, and internal retention straps built in. You cna simply bolt them to the rack or use some kind of mount system such as the puck-style mounts.

Your best/strongest DR option is to purchase the Wolfman sideracks, rear cross brace & turn signal re-locator http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/Racks/...ck_DR_650.html See those holes in the 4 corners of each rack? You then thru-bolt Caribou's to each rack...Wolfman also makes a hard case mount kit but i can't find it so call em..

You then choose which case you wish to use

IMO the 25L (Pelican 1520) are the best matched size for the DR as anything larger is just too big for the smaller DR.

Here is Dale's DR w/ 1520 Pelicans so you get the size idea:

I wonder if that 34 liter top box could be fit to a WR250X with a quick disconnect?

Has anyone done it?
