Mounted my EMGO to my 08 KLR. It was easy.

Here is what I did.

1) I had a couple of strong spring clamps and they held the base to the flat rack on the KLR. (I put it so I can still get to my tool bag).

2) With the clamps holding the base I took a 15/64" drill bit and drilled four holes near the corners. I used the holes that were already in the EMGO to start the holes.

3) I used the bolts supplied with the EMGO but I put washers underneath along with some locking nuts.

It is a solid mount and is as low as possible. Nice looking too.

Scroll down for pictures.

Is this a top box or something? Emgo's a manufacturer, not a product.. I put Emgo's in my bike everytime I change oil..

In this picture you are shown the base. Note all the holes in the base. You can also see where I drilled because there are bolts in those holes now. Spread the holes out to give the base better support.

In this pic you can see that the base is just behind the tool bag. Why cover it up when you can use it?

This is with the box mounted. Plenty of room for another rider and even a couple of cords to tie stuff down with.

Back of the box. Nice reflector for such an inexpensive box. Key entry. The lower red button is to release the box from the bike.
