Rear Top box rack

Hi,

Another question, 2001 Tiger.

The rear rack, what fits to it, ie: Can I buy any old Top box to fit it or does it have to be a special one???

I have a set of side Hepco and Becker Pannier Racks on the bike already at the side, and wondered if i could get one of there's and put it straight on the Triumph rack?

Cheers si

The rear rack is designed to accept Triumph's own top box. It's a decent enough box that holds 2 medium sized crash helmets.

You may find one on ebay but they seem to be getting rarer nowadays.

Most other luggage manufacturers provide/sell adaptor plates that allow their own boxes to be retro fitted to almost any bikes OE rack.

I would check out the Hepco & Becker website or suppliers and try and match up what you have already. Could be expensive though.

A mate of mine gave me a top box for my Tiger-I drilled 4 holes in it and made a couple of plates up so I could bolt it to the standard back rack. Not as convenient as having the proper rack but it works and was a lot cheaper.

lobout has it right. Go the cheaper way and make the mods yourself.

Try this site out for top box, not a direct fit you will have to drill into the box but they do offer a kit... http://www.happy-trail.com/http://www.happy-trail.com/
