Much easier job to fit than on the OEM rack for the ally boxes. Looks good!

I'm a sucker for this sort of thing but it's not a cheap option is it. Both the mounting brackets and box come to around the £100 mark. £50 for a plastic box seems steep. Anyone got a link to the cheapest deal out there - if I think about it too long, I won't buy it.

I got mine, with universal mounting kit on e-bay, but it was about the £100 anyway.
Still cheaper than other options out there.

Nothing's cheap with this motorcycle malarkey....

£115 delivered is the best I have at the second.

It look a nice bit of kit, but they are taking the piss with the price.  The fitting kit costs as much as the tool box.
Don't worry about things you can't change.

There's a tube shaped one which is about the same volume and doesn't need a fitting kit - and that's £16!!!!

Just finished fitting one to my gen 2 with OEM racks.

Bit of fiddling and filing (got the bottom holes wrong  :157:

Looks great and lets me free space in my top box
Forward he cried, from the rear, and the front rank died!!!

I'm going to get one I think, just for those bits and bobs that you always want on the bike but don't want in your pocket when the panniers aren't fitted.

Hi!

Does it fits with Givi's Trekker Outbacks rack with the "universal" kit?

Thanks!

Yes it does, straightforward installation as per the provided instructions.
It only becomes a little tricky if you have Triumph's version of the racks, where some minor mods are required; hence the reason for my original post.

Cheers
