I'm expecting tracking details soon on my trailer. I have the iM2750 Hardig Storm Case, which is essentially the same as the Pelican 1620. Please post pic's of your bash plate if able. I have an ample supply of raw materials and a few welders at the ready to fab a bash plate, and appreciate EVERY thing you have shown us. The Kolpin is motivating too. Is that a ready made Kolpin adapter?

I modified/hacked up the bracket portion which mounts/bolts to the shock tower uprights. As this aspect interferes with the rotopack mounts, I have the right rotopack mount spaced off at the lower bolt the thickness of the Kolpin bracket. If I was to do it again, I would have mounted the rifle another .25-.5" higher. With the rotopax full, and rifle mounted, any speeds above 85KPH on asphalt set up a wicked speed wobble. It wasn't an issue for myself as I spent 99% of time on gravel roads.

Its made from a thin steel plate that was formed into a J-shape with one leg being much longer then the other. I then closed the ends off for cosmetics.





Custom adapter mounting plate for the case picks up off the rear factory mounts as shown. I used all of the factory pelican case screw locations and did not drill through the box, so it remains water tight. The bash plate is welded to the adapter plate.

Got three new trailers shipping later this week!!!

Here’s what’s new at Moto-Mule for 2013:
Cargo area has been lengthened by 2-1/2” to aid in fitting larger boxes like the Pelican Cases.
The frame is now modular, the cargo area bolts in with flanges. Now, one trailer can be customized to haul different things by changing out the cargo section of the frame. Watch for new cargo platforms later this year. This also makes assembly for the end user much easier. It is now feasible to supply parts to those wishing to build their own custom trailer as well.

Looks the same at a glance....

Comes apart at the flanges.


Soon to be more options for cargo area.....

No cargo area... Not sure if this has any value yet?? Could use just the rear side racks to carry gas or water???

Uhm, I think that needs "FisherMAN tested"

I got an idea for a cargo area... any deals on a retrofit?

Cross post from the other thread....

Have you got a model to fit a KLX 250?

Any idea on the cost to ship this to Qld, 4217 in Australia? Looks like this new model packs down smaller. Would it be possible to ship without the tyre & tube to make it lighter/cheaper?

cheers

glad to see the 2013 model. i'm still waiting for a little more development. you've got brackets that mount above the shock for mounting gas cans. someone in the past 29 pages i just read mentioned something similar to a sportbike subframe extending over the back wheel. that's what i want...could be just a steel bar to loop soft bags over each side.

Good fortune!!

Since my order was placed Jan 11th (me thinks)... will it be the 2013 modular variant?

The "half-pint" configuration will be great for a number of options;
  • Mini tanker with the RotopaX mount
  • Smaller pannier set up with Pelicans on the RotopaX mount as others suggested
AWESOME!!



The extra few inches is especially welcome since I already own the Hardig Storm Case im2750 which is a hair long like the Pelican 1620.


Also had an idea to make a dog trailer which is easier to adapt in modular mode.(yes there will be haters, but dog ignores death threats)

Brilliant

Looks like the extra length is mostly aft of the rear cargo mount, which should help opening the rear latch on the Pelicans/Hardigs, and better still, eliminate the urge to ease the box forward which hampers turning radius.

Brilliant, brave, and commendable
to re-tool and innovate. You can NEVER address every idea or request, but that mod by itself kills many, many birds with the same stone, and probably expands potential BEYOND what many requests had petitioned for or imagined.

Hi, here is a pic of a moto-mule behind a 2009 KLX250

She made her own custom flat bed deck for the trailer.

Shipping to Australia is about $219 US.

Thanks,

great shot, unfortunately that much freight makes it just way too expensive (damn!!)

MrBracket, great modular mods for 2013. I like the mini version. Just add a bar stool and someone will find a use for it. Place to sit if your not the "designated" driver rj
