Luggage Rack for small OEM Top case

Post by deineder »

Does anyone know of a rack that will fit on top of my small OEM top case?

Most unlikely, what are you looking to secure to the lid of the top case.

Would something like these luggage loops be of any use, https://www.nippynormans.com/f650gs-08- ... loops-each

I've had the small topbox for around 10 years now - I never managed to find a luggage rack that was a specific fit. I did once see a guy on an RT (in the Humber Bridge Visitor Centre carpark) that had what I assume was a universal, chrome-finish one - it looked as if he'd had some spacers made to fit the curvature of the lid, they looked like ally tubing. I never found the owner though, so couldn't ask!
Something like this one from Louis-Moto -

Thanks.  Various companies manufacture racks.  Im hoping to avoid the trial and error thing.

I need to find space for a 3 person tent.  I can either secure the tent directly or enclose it in a Wolfman Duffle that has loops attached.
The hooks from Wunderlich might work.

Would using Rok Straps attached to the rear rack, passing over both the top case & tent be an idea. Might be more secure than the tent possibly flapping around on the top case lid.

The loops of the Rok Straps can be placed on the rear rack prior to fitting the top case, something like this.

Would the tent be more secure and weight better placed if it were attached to one of the side cases/rear rack.
