whaaa they are big,
I just bought these on dirtbikebook.com, rack and fitting accessories just arrived, waiting on the boxes, looks like the posty will have a very large packet for me.

Can't not filter in the morning so I'll stick with the roll bag for that and keep the biggest panniers in the world for longer trips

Great Thanks ! very illustrative. Has anybody fitted the 990SMT with Givi top case? I saw some pics with the Givi maxi 55 lt top case installed, but I wonder if it can be easily be removed with a quick release adapter. My dealer says that consulting with Givi, they said there is no quick release adapter for Givi top cases for the 990 SMT. Is that true? Any help in this case? I will appreciate.

I had pelican cases on the V-Strom and liked them very much. They have a fairly narrow profile and are guaranteed for life. I think I will order the quick release SW Motech side racks and bolt the pelicans directly to the racks. With the liners you just leave the bags on the bike when you arrive at your hotel. And at any time I can easily remove the racks and go back to the KTM soft bags. For about $300 US you can get two bags and about $239 for the racks it makes for a reasonably inexpensive set-up. BTW how the hell do you post pics.....

Hi supertoon - easiest is to first upload your photos to a site like http://photobucket.com/ (it's free!) and then use the link they give you to show the photo in the forum here... Let me know if you need more detailed help!

Hi katum_smt,

Thanks for all the pics...

How wide is the bike with alu cases mounted?

Is the handles on the side cases okay?
Velcro doesn't sound very stable...

Are the passenger handles still usable?

Best regards
Jan

The cases are slightly wider than the handlebars ( 37Ltr boxes - I think it will be a lot wider with the 47ltr boxes )
The carry straps supplied by SW -Motech are very secure (even with the velcro)
Yes the passenger grab handles are still usable

Hi, I have an Adv at the moment with the H & B Gobi panniers, does anyone know if H & B do racks for the SMT for these cases.

You can get an SW-Motech Quickloc Evo rack and they also supply the adaptors that allow the H&B boxes to fit these racks

I've been using the KTM Adventure hard cases (the hard plastic ones and not the aluminium ones) on my 990 SMT. Really good, strong, very watertight and solid. Look good too in my view. Only two downsides: not cheap, but the quality is good, and they do make the bike wide so I would not put them on for a weekend jaunt where I might need to do a lot of filtering.

However for longer trips they are excellent as my trips so far have shown.

Some photos from trip across Spain at New Year - sorry they are not the best angles to see the boxes in detail, but they show you what they look like in the real world :-)

Boxes can be found on the KTM Powerparts site

I just made a couple of dents in the lid of my new SW motech Trax case, just by sitting on it. I thought these were adventure cases, also to be used while camping :?:
When I tried to get the dent out by using my flat hand from the inside, I only made it worse :oops: , these cases are realy soft, so watch out! :(

The plastic Adventure cases are much better I think and cost about the same. They don't deform and are more crashproof.

They're £100 cheaper for the set and won't dent when sitting on them :D
