    The basic idea came from my brothers bike that he toured with, a Buell with adventure style bags.


    I have used pelican type cases for years for cameras, electronics, hiking etc. they are waterproof, a great value ($70 per bag!) and can be thrown off a cliff. They are the exact size I wanted and they fit the bike perfectly for me. I don’t like big bulbous bags, as I said above, I like the adventure look of a square flat bag. I never need to store a helmet in the bags. Case club provided that and can provide several different sizes. I added ADMORE lights that strobe flash with brakes, as you can see here, That mod is whole Nother discussion. The bags are thru bolted With 5/16 bolts and nylock nuts. I use canvas zipper bags liners and pack those, so I never really have to take them back off. I don’t plan on electrifying the top bag, Reflective tape is enough.

    The bag: I added the carbon fiber and Honda logo.

    This is the bracket that is sold by one of the moderators at the other site – JFC – for about 130 a pair. They are perfect and made for the bike , he has a machine shop make them for him. You order through him.

    I have done quite a few things to my CTX700N since the purchase in 2015. I was asked by a few subscribers to my YouTube channel if I would detail the changes and mods. After several requests I decided to make a video showing the bits and pieces and ultimately a list with costs at the end! Yikes I hit $2K!! Here is the link to my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imcQFFlUJi0

    Does anyone know of cases like these that are top loaders? That fits my needs better than side openings.

    Finished phase 1 of my larger fuel tank installation. The first step was to fit a different air filter.
    I selected a K & N RC-2400 filter and accomplished the following modifications:
    1. Modified the air cleaner connecting tube as shown:

    3. Altered the air filter by drilling two 3/4" holes and inserting the grommet and air temperature sensor and a 15 mm hose barb.

    Slightly louder, but not much different.

    Perhaps when I fabricate the larger fuel tank. Trying to decide whether it should copy and replace the fuel tank cover only or include both
    Right and left side shelters.
