Cool top case removal

I need some information on "how to remove the topcase on a 1200lt. I would like to install some bungee buddies in the space between the rear seat and top case. Thanks, Bob

Near the bottom of this page are several threads on this topic. I believe the fourth one down has the steps spelled out for removal of the trunk - post author is 'Messenger13'. HTH.

Here is the page from the manual showing top box removal. Hope it helps, it really is not very difficult. Just take care removing the inner lining.

Hey, Bob. Brian's manual page above is good for '99 - '04 (???). Later top cases have a slightly different procedure in that there are two tabs near the latches that need to be released to get the liner out, and the velcro is in a different place. http://www.angelfire.com/ar2/jfbeard...unkremoval.htm has the procedure and pics for '05 and later cases. Don't know what year your bike is, but just in case . . .
