Easy off top box.

I made this easy off top box mount from some 1/4" aluminum plate, 1/8" steel flat bar and some 3/4" UHMW plastic. Still leaves room for the factory tool kit.

Remove the existing 4 bolts on the bracket and add the slide with new longer bolts, That's all.

Looks like it might be rattle-tastic.

Does it rattle around a lot when riding the bike?

The clearance is pretty tight on the slide, but with still 18" snow here and -30c temperatures I haven't had the bike out yet.

Fortunately for you, every part of a good KLR rattles.

I've actually found a benefit to the rattles, especially in my top case (Shad SH-33)...it mixes up my morning coffee brew thermos; for that even creme/sugar taste
