This was the box that Mark used and tinkered with during development, as such, it has a couple of extra unnecessary holes in the back that we have plugged with gasket filler. The brackets also show signs of previous fitting (which will be pretty much covered up when you fit yours anyway!)
This is the new design of the standard toolbox revised to fit the new R1250GS - it is powder coated in satin black over aluminium with three 3mm thick stainless steel brackets to hold the box solid. It is professionally hand finished and TIG welded using good thick aluminium material. Its certainly the strongest box currently on the market in our opinion. It is not mass produced, with each one being made to order.
Some may know that Nippy Norman does an `adaptor kit` for a Touratech tool box to fit a GS - the adaptor kit is actually made by us but I`ve never been happy with `just` the two anchor points which the adaptor kit hangs off.
Our toolbox incorporates the following features which represent an improvement over other mass produced boxes on the market:
I had tried to make it fully waterproof but no matter what I tried it was impossible to achieve, to get round this I have fitted 2 drain holes to allow water which may get in to drain out. I personally always stick my gear in plastic bags when I use the toolbox anyway and I would suggest this to all users.
It comes with full instructions and fittings.
