    Top box

    Ok, so I admit that I have a top box . Currently using a Ventura set up which has been fine so far.

    Trouble is, my other half took the S1K yesterday while I was on the Kawasaki and I noticed how much the top box bounces up and down and it scared the life out of me!


    So I'm thinking to change the set up and either get a spare seat and bolt a luggage plate to it or use the Hepco & Becker sportrack and do the same (modifying the plate to access the key). Has anyone here done similar or, even better, got one for sale??

    I use the hecpo and Becker plate to use a vario top box when I’m away. It’s perfect rock solid at speed and you don’t notice it’s there at all. Use the same set up on my gen3 and gen4 (different plate). My brother also uses the plate setup on his gen3 with a givi box. I’d post some pics but don’t know how to do it from my phone.

    Which gen are you wanting the sport rack for? If it's 1 or 2 then the answer is yes.

    Gen 3 of course, life's never that simple! Have taken a chance and gone with this version

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112679536...53.m1438.l2649

    Bit cheaper than the H&B but, more importantly, it comes with a lock! I didn't want to ruin the pillion seat by having to use and alter the lock and realised I was getting a bit miffed about paying £170 for a plate that then required me to cannabilise my bike or spend even more cash on sourcing another lock!

    Mind you, the alternative may be shite, in which case this will turn out to be a very expensive tantrum...
