Cug Could you please post a link for the mounting plate?

I am a hugest fan of the HK/KTM Gobi top case. Has served me very on on the VStrom and the R1150GS. Hoping it will find a home on the 800xc also.

Since I already had a GIVI E52 trunk


and wanted a more functional rack to tie my camping gear to, I went with the Altrider rack.





It is already prepped to accept the GIVI mount kit. It's also ready to accept the Rotopax fuel cells.
The E52 provides a great backrest for the pillion and quick lockup for my helmet when going to and from work.

I use a Micatech medium top case. It's exactly the same width as the grab handles. I can take better pics if anybody wants.

I know she don't look pretty...but it sure has capacity. Fit a 20 pack today...with a little lube, I might be able to do a full case.

I realize this thread is stale, but it is on point, so. . .

I'm considering a full set of Bumot luggage on a new 800 XCx.
I'd only have the top case on around town.
Thoughts on whether this looks too ridiculously large by itself?
And for mounting, any reason why I can't just bolt it down without an adapter plate (I've never once taken the box off my current bike)?







edit/afterthought: At 6'4" I'll probably end up with a Madstad windshield, maybe that will balance the look (by making it equally ridiculous on both ends )

To me, all top boxes seem too large for aesthetics. That is why I have an OEM top box with mounting hardware just sitting in my garage collecting dust. I'll probably never mount it.

Most top boxes are just too big for my liking. My bike came with the factory box. Too big and placed too far back. It looks odd hanging way out there. I have a Givi Trekker 46 as my top box on a plate I made that holde the box further forward than any available mountin option.

If you need the space, who cares what it looks like... Personally, that case looks a. It to 'boxy' to me.

I ran a small/medium Pelican top case on my Tiger. The current case on my Multi appears huge by comparision.

Top box

You could sell it and it could collect road grime on MY bike?

He has it in the flea market , so it is for sale. Mine will likely be in the flea market as well , as I don't see myself using one either.

Topbox rattle

Has anybody tried to "fix" the OEM top box to eliminate the rattle? I haven't looked at the mounting bracket in a while, but I'm thinking that a few strategic welds might do the trick. Would love to know if anyone else has given it a go yet?

I've just ordered a set of the Bumot boxes except that I'm getting the smaller 25 liter top case. Just installed the Madstad.

I'd love to see photos of the 25l top box when you get it (and hopefully sneaking in some off topic shots of the Madstad too).
