What I think of the Hepco and Becker Xceed top box

Starting with the installation of the Easy Rack wasn't too difficult although the black and white instruction drawings weren't easy to understand at first.
Despite this, all was installed with an hour.
The structure of Easy Rack is solid and the Xceed top box weighs only 5kg but seems to be durable; I had to drill into the top box to install the backrest, even with the correct metal drill bit it didn't want to go through easily.
The top box fits very securely and has enough room for 1 full-face helmet I wasn't able to get 2 in.
I really like the opening options as one of either side opens up or the lid comes off entirely which makes life very simple, also has good secure locks but I hope it won't be tested anytime soon...
Most of my experience with this product is positive but I was seriously disappointed in the shipping service provider; No email of when shipped, no missed delivery card left, no tracking as this was not fulfilled as should have been, terrible customer service. In this instance anyone in the UK deciding to purchase anything from Hepco and Becker I really push you to have them change postal service provider using anyone other than Parcelforce:192:

Iconic Oil Cooler and Water Rad Guards

Really my style, I bought the retro Ducati laser cut one.
Very solid stainless steel? I'm guessing
Easy to install, all I did was remover the farings to install; they hook over and have soft sticky pads and cable ties supplied.
I found about Iconic oil and water guards from another post here on the forms which used the modern laser cut letters, I will post a link when I ask for permission. 

I hope this is insightful for anyone considering these products.

Toaster,
Nice set up.  I cheaped out and did the HB old Gobi.  Yours looks more useable.  The Gobi crunches my helmet. I noticed that power wheelies in 1st gear are often with the top case on.  Even when empty.  😂
👍

Sounds like you have a case of "wheelie hand" - a problematic twitch experienced by Mutley 950 owners who have an irresistible urge to wind on the throttle quickly.  In really bad cases the clutch hand has a similar twitch that seems almost to synchronise with the right resulting in countless wheelies.  You could see your Doctor, but I don't believe there is any cure...... :745:

Yes Ducati-al,
It seems to be addicting.  I keep looking for a road to ride it out as far as i can.   The  local police presence keep me at bay.   😂💀
