Tool case

Is thel location of the tool case going to compromise the vertical movement of the rear wheel/drive?

No, there is plenty of clearance.

One more KLR lurker....ready, willing and able to crash test!


Since KLR license plates are a favorite snack food for the rear tire, it might be nice to incorporate a safer plate perch into the rear crossbar/fender of your mounts.

Installed mine last night. Took me about an hour and it was pretty straight forward. I installed with the optional spacers and wound up taking them off tonight as a matter of choice. These have a very sano look.

It's an easy install and the quality is top notch. Plenty of carrying space and rugged.

Way to go!

It is a mule in more ways than one, isn't it?

R1200GS rear plate ??

Roger,

If and when you do a rear mounting plate for the R1200GS drop me a PM or e mail. I already have a Pelican #1520 just need some way to mount it on the rear for camera gear. Absolutely need it by April 15th as we have a trip to Monument Valley planned.

njmtca@3riversdbs.net

Thanks,

FN in MT

Excellent idea Roger! Do you have plans for a set up for the KTM 640 Adv?

When you finally figure out that KLR, any chance you can offer the Pelican 1430 case instead? It's got a top loading lid, and I currently have the Pelican 1550 mounted on Happy Trail SU racks and I don't like them. You open the lid and everything falls out. I'd rather go with the top loading 1430.

aren't the 1430's a LOT smaller? FWIW, I think the quick-release is quick enough you could just pull the bag off the bike and lay it on the ground to sort through it faster than digging to the bottom of a top-loader.

I do plan to build a system for the KTM 640 and KTM 950. It will be this summer. In fact, I could use a KTM 640 donor bike if anyone out there is close to Boulder CO.

I have a 1430 case here in the shop, and realize that at 17 liter capacity it is much smaller than the 1550 (35 liter) or even the 1520 (25 liter).

The Top Load vs Side Load preference is very personal. I've used both, and each requires a certain method of packing to be functional. With top loaders you put things you need often near the top and secure small things so they don't settle to the bottom. With side loaders you use stuff sacks/inner bags and the retention straps I've designed into the Pelican case to keep things in place when you open them. Once I got accustomed to packing the correct way there is little advantage of one style over the other. They are just different, but I know this can get into a religous argument quickly so to each his own.
