Shad SH-39 top case

Post by ryandee » Sat May 02, 2015 9:56 pm

Hi All,

I bought a Shad SH-39 top case (trunk) for my 2012 990 SMT. I ordered it in white to match the white bike. Here are some pics. The included mount plate easily bolted to/through my factory rear rack on the SMT, very straight forward and seems very stable. I have not ridden with it yet, but the case is very sturdy, clips on and unclips easily from the mount, and looks great. This is the case on Shad's web site:

Wow, that really looks nice! I like the way the white panels line up with the bodywork... 8-)

Not sure if you are aware but the box is not waterproof. I have the ktm branded 46l version.

Hey thanks for the post! This is exactly what I was looking for and in the right price range. I also have a white smt so this helped me make my decision to buy one. I just placed my order in today. I'm taking the wife on a trip for the first time and I want her to be comfortable in hopes she'll want to go again!

Regarding the waterproof post... I read other reviews and they're saying it is. It doesn't seem like it's really a sealed type of a waterproof but more of an over the lip design.

Update: I've had some great experiences with this company over here in the US. They've always answered my emails quickly and they sent great responses. One of the cool things they don't really advertise is their univeral mounts work with a lot of their top boxes. For example, I bought the SH-39 for a two-up trip but it's too large for my solo runs so I purchased the SH-26. The SH-26 fits right into the universal plate for the SH-39 so switching boxes is a breeze. I've taken them on some trips now and I'm very happy with them. These cases have so much value in them compared to the competitors that charge double.
