Top Case on my Hyperstrada

Hey guys, just wanted to show you what i put together for a top case.
So far all i have into it is $145 for the Ducati Braces and spacers. A fairly small piece of aluminum, less then $20 in hardware, and the actual case is a pelican knock off for $40. This did take some pretty basic layout, and fabricating skills.
Bracket install was super easy, literally replace the for bolts with longer ones and the bracket

I had to get spacers under the existing 4 bolt holes as the brackets were about 5mm higher

My aluminum cut and drilled, 6 holes to accept the 6mm holes on the bike and 3 to accept 8mm fasteners holding the top case on.

Plate fastened to the bike, I may modify this later its still a little plain for my liking

and the finished product.

and the view of my driveway today, looks like I'm still not going to road test it soon.

I should add this is probably going to be version 1, nothing i do is ever really finished so feel free to add comments or suggestions.

Looks like a great value for money outcome. Dome headed cap screws in place of the straight sided ones in the photos would provide a smoother appearance to the rack. I got some real nice stainless ones from my local bolt shop that I have used on a couple of my other bikes.

nice work!! how did you mount the box onto the rack? is it no-tools quickly detachable or does it need hex keys to come off?

I just have 3 8mm cap screws holing the case to the rack. I've been thinking of different quick detach solutions

i'm a DIY enthusiast myself. if i can get hold of a box similar to yours, my quick-release (but expensive ) solution will be to install the touratech rapid trap system... and with that, i will also need the zega pro topcase rack for the multistrada which will also fit the hyper

gotta save some moolahs for this project

I had thought about buying the zega top case rack from touratech as well and just modifying it to fit the ducati braces, but at $571 for the box and $210 for the rack and still need the $145 Ducati braces. It was getting a little rich for something I still had to modify quite heavily

i agree, the whole touratech system is pricey. that's why i'm not considering their top box... i'll just get their quick-release system and slap it onto a pelican or something similar. plus, the empty box alone is on the heavy side. but still, even just the topcase rack and the rapid trap is a substantial investment in itself. anyway, i'm actually in it for the mod, just to keep busy when not riding on weekends

i hope you don't mind, not to hijack the thread or anything... i just thought i'd share something for others looking for a cheap luggage plate solution to consider.

when the bike was a few days old, i badly needed a rack to mount a decent tailbag. so before i found out the multistrada plate can fit the hyper, i designed my own using cardboard as a template then had a fabricator laser cut me the shape in 9mm plexiglass. also had him apply some black vinyl sticker to give it color. i then drilled holes for the mounting screws.






i since replaced it with the touratech aluminum plate, which i also mod'd to accept the givi tank lock system
