Roger,
I already have Givi Monokey sidecases installed on my bike. What I would
like to have is 25 L Storm Top Loading Side Luggage with all the hardware including lid locks. My understanding that DIY kits don't come with the lid locks.

In other words, can I have 25L Top Loading Side Case System (SKU:
V-Strom650201225TL) without Hepco Becker side luggage racks?

Freefallen,

Yes you can indeed get the cases and quick attach/release mount system without racks here.... http://cariboucases.com/Side-Luggage-Kits-for-Hepco-Becker-Racks/25L-Top-Loading-Storm-Side-Case-System-for-HB-Racks.html

Also, we have two different styles of DIY mount kits for side cases. One is the standard kit that does not include lid locks, lid lanyards or the internal gear retention straps.... http://cariboucases.com/Do-It-Yourself-Kits/DIY-Side-Case-Mount-Kit-for-Hepco-Becker-Side-Luggage-Racks-Standard-Kit.html

The other is the deluxe kit that includes lid locks, lanyards and internal gear retention straps.... http://cariboucases.com/Do-It-Yourself-Kits/DIY-Side-Case-Mount-Kit-for-Hepco-Becker-Side-Luggage-Racks-Deluxe-Kit.html

Hope this helps. Thank you.

well, for 25L top loading storm cases I won't need lanyards and internal gear retention straps.
so, standard kit isn't sufficient for me because it's missing lid locks and deluxe kit is overkill for me...

Ah yes, I see. Send me an email at roger@cariboucases.com and we can pretty much make any kit you want.

Lid Organizer

I'm looking at the Caribou 34L lid organizer. Will that fit into a Pelican 1550?

The lid organizer noted above is designed with small screws that fasten it to the molded-in bosses in the lid of the 34L top case. The 35L Pelican case has similar bosses to allow organizers to be fastened inside the lid, however the location of the Pelican bosses is different and wider apart than that on the 34L case. You would have to either glue the lid organizer to the Pelican case lid, or use M5 screws/nuts/sealing washers to bolt-through and fasten it to the lid.

There may not be enough back there to bolt our cargo plate down. Can you post a pic, top view of the tail rack area?

any feedback on whether or not pillions think the back rest is comfortable on the 34ltr top case? Most cases have a pad at the top of the case but this one the pad is in the middle with nothing on the top. Seems like pillions would be leaning on the top.

I read your blog and the one thing you mentioned about the HB racks looking skimpy has always been a concern of mine. I want something solid and that doesn't rattle when off road. Other racks just look more sturdy. I'm in the research phase myself. I think I've narrowed it to this setup for my 800xc except I want the top loaders. Just need some more confidence to pull the trigger.

I think it is better to have the back rest pad contact lower rather than up high on adventure touring bikes. In a get-off I think it is safer to have the back rest low. That's why ours are positioned where they are. Hope this explains it. Thank you.
