Working great on my gen 2 KLR

" I have the large version of this, looks great and provides a good amount of storage. the mounting rack took some work to get on, but it is a universal piece and with six mounting points, it's not going anywhere.(I drilled though and made my own). The case fits very tight on the mount and I'm not concerned about it falling off (had to use a small pry bar between the mount and my rack to get it to clip in.. I considered that a good thing). I wouldn't expect this to hold up through many tip overs off road, but that's what soft luggage is for. In case others were wondering , mine doesn't have the "orange piece" that some people disliked, it is black now. "

" I installed this in 3/14 and I'm very happy.
I bought the large one.
I installed it on a 2008 Kymco Agility 125. Looks great.
I bought another bar and bolts from a local hardware store, similar to the ones in the kit, to secure it better.
I had to glue the nuts on.
Sometimes it doesn't stay open very well. The plastic things that keep it from opening too far are a little short.
It was stiff at first, but now it is very easy to pop off and carry with me. Make sure you get the bottom pegs hooked properly when reattaching it.
Make sure you get the closure hooked well before you lock it, but that said, I have not had it fly open while riding the few times I have failed to latch it properly.
Lots of room. The contents of a full supermarket handbasket will generally fit inside, though you may need to do some shifting.

Top Box
January 22, 2015
By Anonymous
" I like the top box. Very easy to install. I didn't like the small screws that came with it so I used my on, a little bigger and beefier. The only complaint is that the mounting plates bends very easy and you won't know it until you go to remove the box from the bike.It will come off but it can be a real pain. my passenger state they like the back rest. I am very please with this purchase. A full face helmet will not fit in this box. I may order the larger one just for that purpose. I would highly recommend this product! "

Great top box for the price

" I debated between the medium vs. large case - I went with the medium and am glad I did. The medium case is plenty of storage for my needs (commuting, running errands, weekend touring), and I think the large would have been overkill.
Quality is good for the price, and seems like it will hold up well to regular usage. A few small complaints:
- the red lens is not a reflector - however, it can be removed and reflective tape or LEDs can be installed under the lens for better visibility.
- unfortunately, it does not fit my size large full face helmet
- base plate is made of stamped sheet metal - seems a little flimsy, although I haven't had any problems yet
- lid does not open wide enough and tends to slam shut on my hands if the case gets bumped. Fixed this by removing the plastic straps on either side and replacing them with longer lengths of string that allow the case to open wider.
Overall, very pleased with this case and think it's a great value. "
