[Discussion] Boxes, Panniers & Saddlebags


Recommended Posts

its the same thing for saddle bag la.. -_- cheapo and the so call branded de wat..

if u get cheap cheap 1 of coz it wun be good wat.. -_-

so many of my friends use saddle bag nvr heard any complain from them leh..

so dun coz of some cheapo 1 den say that saddle bag all have waterproof problems

 

Hahaha, ok but I've seen their saddlebags and definitely not the cheapo type lor! Their saddlebags are more ex den wad LAB or Ah Koon are selling and I dun think these people with their status will get cheapo ones lor. Anyway, just let Kangwei decide on his own lah! Cheers!

Don't do it to others what you don't want others to do to you! God bless! :cheers:

anything that says "harley" is usually good, but overpriced... need to go to professional cruiser websites to get similar saddlebags without the ridiculous price tag thanks to the brand logo...

hey peeps, just installed my side boxes not too long ago and i'm facing a small problem.

 

Does anyone has anyway to prevent water from collecting at the lock area as shown below?

 

I feel that it might pose a problem of water seepage in the future once the seals are worn out.

I think you need to develop more tolerance to fellow riders.

i have been using givi for about 1.5 year plus already. so far no problems with water seepage... really gd quality... :) dun have to worry about it...

 

just make sure u close the box properly and nothing is sticking out of the box. cause there was once, a piece of cloth was sticking out of my givi side box, and it rained like crazy... when i went to open e box, it was filled with quite abit of water. e water seeped in by soaking through e cloth n dripping into the box lucky there wasnt anything in e box... :)

people might steal e21 as well... although less likely...

 

yes e21 can be quick released... to bomb the tp chasing you from behind... :cheeky:

 

the e21 should not come in contact with the pillion... even though I have mounted mine quite forward, they haven't quite come in contact with my pillion...

 

as for top box colour... just spray paint and lacquer... ta-da you get whatever colour you want :clap:

Hi remy, yep i am using E21s. To prevent it from touching pillion , i shifted the signal lights to license plate and so the boxes can be further backwards. Refer to my post a few pages infront. Its very convenient to have sideboxes. :cheeky:

You are right bro! If they aimed you, the whole bike can be taken away even if your alarm is activated. They have means of disarming them!

Bro, there's a quick release for the E21 and can only be release using the key provided. You can dismount/mount the boxes to clean/wash your bike easily. These boxes will not get in the way of the pillion and infact the pillion feels safer with them on, jokes aside! Somehow, they feel that they are protected! I recently 'buang' while turning a corner and the crashbar and my side box helped heaps! They supported my bike which slided off my leg with only light abrasion on my elbow! Can you believe it that the box is so tough that I'm still using it? Anyway, to cut the story short, it's WORTH IT! Here's a picture of my side and top boxes to help you visualise the sitting arrangement.

O...k...

thanks guys.

think i'll save up for the full side n top box setup.

btw pureice68, ur headlight damn powderful siah........

i like it....!

 

My advise for the top box is to get something bigger if you're thinking of getting FF helmets, maybe at least 50litre and above. I'm stuck as I'm using Kappa 42 which can only hold 1 FF.

Don't do it to others what you don't want others to do to you! God bless! :cheers:
