Excellent work on the Buell setup....

Two questions:

1. Will there be a Top Box option? It doesn't look like I'll be able to keep my Buell top box.
2. I've got Gobis on my Buell now. I REALLY like the top loading feature. I think I read earlier that the 1440s were not an option. Any idea if there is anything coming from Pelican in a more suitable Top Loader?

Third question...: Looking at page 43 it looks like a plate type arrangment for the top box, and that any case (within reason) could be fitted. What Pelican case would you recommend that would hold an Arai XD?

I could not figure out how to safely hang a rear tail rack/cargo plate off the back of the Uly. I finally decided that folks would just strap a bag to the beavertail/backrest thing. Or, you maybe could bolt a top plate to the beavertail and use a very light top case. It is all aluminum casting back there, no tubular rear subframe to bolt to. Rather risky.

Pelican will not be making a top loader that works well as motorcycle luggage, so for now I've done things to the side loader to ensure gear does not fall out when opened. EDIT 2009: A 36L Top Loading luggage system is now available.

Roger,

Do you have a top case/rack (mounting thing) for a '07 Dakar? I'm really interested in just the rack by itself.

I had a guy here in town stop me last week (my one attempt at getting my bike out) stop me and ask me a lot of questions about the cases. He took down your info, hopefully he'll order some.

thanks...rich

Rich, I'll be doing the final fit of the rear cargo plate and top case parts this weekend, then off to powder coat next week, so I would say a couple of weeks for availability.

Great. Could you post a picture here (or on your website) when it's done. That's fantastic news - trhe quality of your products are as good as they can get - I couldn't believe the excellent fit and finish on the luggage racks, first thing I've put on that actually fit right. I'll want to snag one of these.
Will it allow access to that little storage compartment the newer F650's have?

thanks again...rich

Thank you for the compliment Rich. Yes, I made a cutout for the little hatch in the tail section of the F650GS (dual spark). I'll post a pic here in about a week.

Hey, that looks like my Uly... and ... HEY! THAT'S MY DRIVEWAY!!!!!








The units are first-rate workmanship no matter how close you look. I only wish I could TIG like Roger does. VERY clean. Simple, light, strong and visually unobtrusive.

If only I hadn't already purchased the Buell bags....

(but Roger is working something up for my 4x4 Frankenrunner.... SHHHHHHH!!!!)

Roger, thanks for your prompt reply to my earlier query. After much procrasto-deliberation, I have bitten the bullet and ordered a regular (1550 cases) kit from your website. I agree that the 25 + 25 litre capacity of the 1520 cases would have been too small for longer tours. I have a fantastic Ortleib backpack that I use for short trips and commuting and the 1520s would have been too much of a compromise: too big for commuting and a little small for the tours.
Looking fwd to fitting and travel-testing them out.

Roger,

The Buell topcase bolts to a bar that mounts via 4 bolts to the subframe and grab-handle.



Perhaps using these points and the Caribou sidecase racks themselves (since they use the original top-case holes on the underside of the pass. handles) could provide a secure setup. You'd have to have the sidecases (or at least the framework) to have the topcase but that'd be a price I'd be willing to pay.

Something like this? (Forgive the use of your photo):



Something to think about. Perhaps I might buy the sidecase setup and the parts for the topcase and go it alone.

Cheers
Brett

Hi Brett, Thanks for the pics. I'll revisit the Uly rear top case in a couple of months.
