My 35 liter topecase from Caribou uses four, 1/4-turn thumb-screws on the inside of the box. I put each one on a short string by it's mounting hole to prevent loss. Very slick.

I did a search and found the KLR thread where TREKKERGUY posted, it is in fact a Caribou case mounting plate and 4 Dutz 1/4 turn fasteners

I'm kinda leaning toward the TT set up, the steel version for $102

I have that precise top box on my rig. Perfect for a helmet on muggy days or groceries on sunny ones.

Klr # 3

I picked up my third KLR today. Sold an FZ8 last weekend and found this nicely set up 2009 here in the Flea Market (thanks Riley). My 8 year old approves.

Last fall, just rolled 35,000 on my 99 so I pulled off for a celebration shot somewhere in the Washington blues.
