I have the 2008 KLR scheduled to arrive in the shop here late May, so I expect to have the product available end of June or early July. I nice fellow from northern CO is loaning the bike, so it is in the pipeline.

Topcase?

Hi Roger:

Still waiting for you to offer the topcase system for the R1150GS Adv. (Hint hint). Something like a 1640 or 1660 would be nice (they are deeper). But the standard 15xx you have will do too.

Top Case Question

Roger,

After watching your venture on this site from the begining, I am ready to buy. I wish I would have waited on your stuff when I first bought my 1200GS, but the replacement equipment will be your stuff.

I just purchased an 07 F650GS for my wife and I will buy the side cases. After reading all the tread pages, I still have a question. The top case for the 650 mounts across the back. I am wondering if it can be mounted front to back instead. I would like to be able to mount it forward enough to be able to make the box double as a back rest for her. Does that sound feasible? That would be the ultimate set up for her.
Your thoughts would be appreciated. As soon as I know, I will make the purchase. She is ready to ride!!!

Thanks, Terry

Hi Terry,

You cannot mount the case far enough forward to use it as a solo-rider back rest, and I don't have the little back rest pad ready yet that will attach the the case. Sometimes I put a dry bag between me and the top case, and with the dry bag filled with things it acts as a nice backrest. But then there is no swinging a leg over, you have to do the one-foot hop to get on the bike.

I got a close-up look at your cases and mounts on an f650 over the last weekend. Nice design elegantly executed!

Sorry if I missed it somewhere in the thread...

I will have an 08 KLR soon and was considering your 3 bag system.

But I was wondering if a full face helmet will fit in the top case? If not, I'll probably go with these for the side bags, and come up with an alternative top case?

Thanks Roger.

I ordered the sidecase kit and the top case kit along with the liner.

Hi Tony,

Sorry, a helmet will not fit in our top case.

OK... thanks. I'll keep looking for a good top bag. Is the ETA on the KLR 08's still accurate above?

Thumb Killer Product

Roger -

Another Kudo for ya: I recieved the Caribou cases for my Dakar yesterday and promptly fitted them to the bike. You've done some awesome engineering on this system. Great looking product and amazing fit right outta the box. Thank you!

Question

Hi Roger,

I've been following this thread for a while. My wife and I have a couple of '07 KLRs and are sold on the Caribou system. We are interested in the side bags, not the top cases.

Since the 1550s are a little large for my wife's bike (she want smaller bags on hers), I was wondering if you've figured out a way to get the 1520s on your KLR side rack.

If so, we'll run on up to your shop to check them out!

TIA!

When you get the cases sorted out for the new KLR650, can you confirm that agressive street riding won't cause the bags to touch down in a corner?
I'm looking at your site and the picture of the bags from the back have me wondering...

Maybe show a photo of the bike leaned over to the cases... and be close enough to see the footpegs. That would give a good indicator of the cornering clearance.

Thanks,

I don't have the 1520 side case option available yet, it is going to take a little work, so it will be a while. Have to finish up the DR650 and '08 KLR first, then rallys in July, so maybe I'll get it done in June.

When you have the bags and the bike loaded down, you will not be able to scrape the pegs on the KLR. You can get pretty aggressive, but peg scraping is out of the question. The bags will touch just before the pegs touch on the KLR.
