Shad 45 top case

Was thinking about using my SHAD 45lt top case for the new '13 KLR however it's quite a heavy case.

Anyone have any problems with weight on the luggage rack? what's the max weight capacity on the GEN II's?

If you haven't made your decision yet, take a look at Bestem boxes. I put the cheapie on with the LED lights. Not bad quality for $80.00 bucks though I decided to make the mount more permanent. Didn't want the wife falling off ya' know!

My Givi V47NNT weighs about 10# with the mounting plate and has a capacity of 22#. Never any issues on my 2012. You should be fine...

I dont think it should be any issue on the luggage rack. They're designed and made to hold luggage. I don't think it would break at anything under 100lb..
