Kawasaki KLR 650 (2008-2021) 40 Liter Side Luggage Pannier System

SKU: 08KLR65040S

The world’s toughest and most waterproof motorcycle luggage system proven by thousands of adventure riders all over the world. Fits 2008 and newer Kawasaki KLR650.

Complete Turn-Key System - 80 Liter total capacity. Includes two 40 Liter SKB cases, side racks, single key locks, mounting hardware, everything. No drilling or modification to the bike.

Nearly indestructible - Cases made with a tough co-polymer material and a heavy duty watertight O-ring lid seal - will not crack or shatter like hard plastic, will not dent & leak like aluminum, will not rip and tear like soft bags. The last cases you will ever need to buy.

Secure and Convenient - Caribou Cases are on and off the bike in seconds with no straps or fasteners to fiddle with. Locks give you security and peace of mind while you are away from your bike.

Safety - Caribou Cases have smooth, large radius corners and are positioned on the bike for all types of riding and terrain - safer than the sharp corners of aluminum luggage.

User Friendly - Caribou cases are pre-drilled with pre-installed waterproof lid locks, lid lanyards to keep the lid from swinging down, and gear retention straps to hold things in the case while you open it. Optional inner bags and liners make life even easier.

Designed for the Long Haul - Caribou quick attach/release system holds the case tightly on the rack with an external locking latch that is adjustable to account for wear and to keep the system tight and secure forever. Latch is field replaceable and designed to release the case from the bike in a hard crash thereby protecting the bike's subframe and luggage rack.

Durable - All mount components are made of high strength powder coated steel with bushing material to prevent metal-on-metal contact - no brittle plastic parts holding the case to the bike like most OEM luggage.

Passenger Friendly - Plenty of room for passenger's legs and feet.

Flexibility - Super strong Hepco Becker “Lock-It” side luggage racks offer the best fit. Remove the rack in a few short minutes leaving behind small unobtrusive attach plates.

Narrow and Light on the Bike - 36"-39" width (depending on bike model) across outside of cases at widest point on bike. Each case with mounting hardware weighs only 13lbs. Case dimensions are approximately External 55.9cm (22") x 47cm (18.5") x 21.6cm (8.5") and Internal 52.1cm (20.5") x 39.4cm (15.5") x 19.6cm (7.7").  40 Liter capacity per case (80 Liter total).

Just wanted to let you know (like all the others...LOL) how pleased I am with my products from Caribou.....before my cases arrived I was worried that I should have gotten the smaller cases but after mounting them (packing them) and a trip to Colorado last week I'm thoroughly pleased with the racks, 40 liter side cases and liners.....all top quality and my buying experience from Caribou was almost perfect....there was a couple piece was missing in the package when it arrived but I was amazed how quickly you rectified the problem and shipped me the piece immediately..."thank you".....the only other problem was the fact that mounting the rack to the upper foot peg bolt (left side) conflicted with my "Happy Trails" lift handle I installed when I installed a "Happy Trails" center stand.....might want to make note of that if you weren't aware of it......I just had to remove the lift handle to install the rack on the left side of my '08 KLR......I am totally satisfied with their ruggedness, roominess and the ease of installation (for the most part, do your ears ring often...LOL). I think my KLR looks pretty cool and so functional, now that I've completed most of the mods......(see a few pics attached) in the pics I have removed my large tail bag and re-installed the smaller factory tail bag cause it holds my helmet on these nice warm evenings when I just want to feel the air on my old!!! I've grown to really like the KLR although I'm more used to liter bikes with much more does what it's designed for.....and pretty's some pics of my KLR showing the close-up of why I had to remove my HT's lift handle and also my addition of a couple tractor manual / tool tube / x-tra water / x-tra fuel bottle containers I mounted onto my panniers.....they work great for any combination of what is needed for any given ride or environment......if more water might be needed or maybe more x-tra fuel......load accordingly.....maybe some body else might find them pretty cool....and very handy !!

Again....thanks for a great product and your great service !!!
