Rack & top case is oem from yamaha holds 1 helmet, or 1 case of peaches, or 40 lb bag of : cement, plaster, rice, etc.If you can carry a 150 lbs passenger then riding with a top case will be no problem, the top case does not affect my riding or turning. this top case detaches from rack like a suit case with handle, and also comes with a lock and key, when installing the lock, use locktite or teflon tape on screw threads to secure lock. Bike vibrations will cause screws to come loose and lose the lock.

I'm not understanding the  point of the thread.

 

Are you showing off something you added to your bike or did you have a question?

 

Is it for sale or are you looking to buy one?

 

Curious minds want to know. 😀

this was posted so if someone wanted to know what it would look like if they installed a top case for a fz-07. I love my fz-07, sorry not for sale

I am thinking of buying a spare pillion seat and fixing my Givi box to that. Then: no box, no rack.

hmm, 40 lbs of weight more than a foot behind the rear axle and way up high. 

 

yeah, it's great to have the carrying capacity for stuff, but that's the worst place to put extra weight. 

 

btw, your rack is only rated to 15 lbs.

Agreed. This is why I went with the hard side cases instead. Much further forward and lower. An added bonus is they're not in the way of swinging a leg over. The side cases still hold a XL full face helmet in each one. ✌️

I do things the smart way. When I ride with DewMan I just put all my stuff in his side cases, ha! Seriously though, I do sometimes and he always has room to spare, right next to the precious, the Mt. Dew's. 😋 Good cases he has!

That OEM case is huge for a sport bike, would look more at home on a big H.D. Just my opinion, never mind, keep on bikin'! ✌️

No matter how functional those cases might be, I can't get past the aesthetics of the matter.  Way too ugly to ever grace my bike.

I carried a 40lbs of apples from littleton ma back to boston ma, wasn't bad just don't lean into turns too much, i  only carry that kind of weight  occasionally, thank you for the input

thanks for the reply,  the top case fits 1 helmet with room to spare, it's multi functional for me, the case does lift off leaving the rack, but thank you though
