Hand made Top Case

Just to report that I've made a hand made aluminium structure for mounting a top case on it. I'll test it in a very few days and I'll keep you informed. Is not nice at all but it's practical, I hope.

Here it is:





I'll post more pics when all will be mounted.

Is not nice at all, impossible to create a piece such nice as it is the OEM component, but is practical, hopefuly it will allow a big Top Case on it.

Not Bad at all!!! If you don't mind some inputs, I would have bent the side parts inside and up to make it slimmer and not have the step.

But once the top case is installed and with the side cases too it should be pretty much invisible. Any plans to paint it the same color of the back frame?

I'll do not do anything else on this item because I'll only use it from time to time, let's say 2 or 3 times a year maximum.

I recently picked up a second passenger grab bar and plan on drilling into that and adding a piece to mount a top case with. Hopefully it will work out.

I had thought of this, so please keep us updated. The Multistrada uses a similar approach with what is a threaded female captive nut/rivet of sorts.

It would be perfect if someone could come up with a way to work this out, (or if MV offered this as standard and then we could get Altrider to make a rack for the TV!)

Then you could use any top box, soft luggage you wanted.

Just arrived from holidays. The hand made top case has been phenomenal. Is not nice at all but it's practical for its capacity and for the comfort of the passanger. I'm happy with the results. I can post a picture if someone is interested to see how it looks the TV with a top case mounted.
