Top box and mount question
« on: March 14, 2014, 11:36:30 pm »
Is the plate easy to take on and off for the top box?  I won't use the top box but a few times per year and wondering how easy to switch between standard rack and top box rack.

thanks!

Why would you want to remove the plate. once the electric rubber cover is in place there isn't much difference. Obviously your personal choice but I cannt see the reason to change.

Rubber cover?  I removed the top box at the dealership on the demo bike and its not pretty looking.  So a cover can go on top of that?  :084:

 Not a full cover.....

Just a rubber bung that covers the electric connections for the power to the top box

If you remove the mounting plate they have  nice looking embossed plastic cover that sits over the grab rail mounting bolts.

I'd pull mine off too FlyingZ but mines a homebuilt mount and a pain in the ass to take off and put on so it'll stay put.

I have never taken off my mounting plate because I think it looks fine with it on. I too only use my top box a few times a year.

To take off the mounting plate the wiring to the box has to be removed. The plug is down behind the left hand panels and the whole grab rail would have to be removed to make easy access to remove the grommet where the wire passes through. It's not a difficult job just a bit more time consuming and fiddly and in my opinion NOT worth the effort every time you want to use the box.
But as in all cases it's up to you dude  :028: :028:
