    Top Box separating inner case from outer to fit USB

    Hi everyone its been a while but been a ... well.... busy year with my now ex wife  :233:, anyway won't go down that road. :125:

    So I haven't done as much riding as I would have liked this year, but this summer I will be! The Trumpy is still going strong anyway that's the main thing.

    I just did a job that I have been wanting to do for a while, changing the top box charging point to USB but I had a bit of an issue separating the inner case from the outer to access the OE cigarette charging point.

    I did a search on here found some bits and pieces etc and I might have missed some posts regarding this and maybe its been covered before, but anyway I thought I would put a link to a simple video I did for it. might be useful if anyone else wants to separate case as well.

    Link below



    Cheers

    Several Members have posted to the Forum previously trying to work out
    how to separate the two halves of the Top Box, and this is the first time
    I've heard - and SEEN (  :028: ) it being done !

    Thank You for sharing.  :169:

    Good job with the video and description. I agree that the original cigarette lighter socket is next to useless. Anything I put in always detached itself on a journey, so I used a piece of a discarded cigarette carton to wedge it in (well I was away at the time!) When I got home, I made a thin walled sleeve to go in the female socket which was much better, but then the whole socket came away from the box inner. Mark 3 version was a collar to go around the socket which was screwed into the box plastic which works well. I would post a photo, but I am a bit thick.

    Nice post Clarky, I too tried to separate mine not to long ago, but gave up.
    I will have another go now, I want to the same as you, and replace the outlet for a dual usb.

    Love the cat, didn't see it help to much though  :008:

    Good job and thanks for sharing.

    I still didn't know anyone who could take off the two halves of the Top Box.

    I tried several times and I could not unhook the two halves and I had to pass cables as best I could.

    Great post Clarky  :028:
    Previous posts suggested this couldn't be done without causing damage. Good job! I will be modifying mine.

    So simple. The perfect way of looking outside the box to solve a known problem. Only a New Zealander could work it out. One of their own was the first to climb Mt. Everest, now one of their own is the first to solve this perplexing problem. Very well done indeed.  :821: :028: :062:
