Bonjour à tous

Je souhaite mettre de la bagagerie sur mon F6. Que me conseillez-vous ??


Pour un top case sur mon F6, quel modèle est le plus adapté pour ne pas dénaturer la ligne du F6?
Pour des sacoches, lesquelles choisir ?

Merci de votre aide précieuse.

Il y a aucun kit de montage pour top case c'est du custom fit , meme chose pour les sacoches a part ceux de Honda , c'est seulement du custom fit , c'est a dire qu'il faut etre bricoleur.

English again


There 's no mounting kit for top case is the custom fit , same for the bags apart those of Honda , it's only the custom fit , that is to say it must be handy .

I have put a Givi V47 monokey top box on my F6C. It also has a Givi soft backrest. I needed to buy the Givi universal E251 Nylon base plate and bolted that to the standard Honda rack.

I'm getting the top lid of the top box colour matched at the moment, when I get it back and together I will post a few photos.

I will post photos next week when the painted lid is back on the top box. I'm really happy with the set up which I fitted myself.

I enquired about the Corbin hard bags with the Australian supplier who is interstate in Melbourne. Was quoted A$2,700 for supplied & painted bags, delivery to Sydney from Melbourne another $100 and then I'd have to fit myself or find someone to fit. My local motorcycle shop said they have done a set of Corbin hard bags and charged $600 for labour. That's A$3,400 or US$2,522.

I didn't go down that path for a number of reasons, firstly huge cost, I didn't want the width of saddlebags as I do at times lane split (legal here) in heavy stationary traffic at traffic lights, and lastly I only will use the top case when doing a longer trip where I need to carry a change of clothes. Otherwise the top case stays in my garage.

Rob [email protected] has a pair of blue one for sale for $1300. If you search here for Corbin hard bags on the site you'll find the post. And for $900 you can get me a ticket and I'll come install them ☺

Can you post any photos ??? Explain your modifications please....;-)

My english is not good but i'll try my best , in my case for the Viking hard saddlebag i modified the OEM saddlebag rack (welding) , you need to moove the 4 pieces (where you screw the bolt) inside the frame , ( not outside like it came from Honda) then you can install the aftermarket bags , you can use the kit that came with the rack (frame bolts , rubber, bushing) but you need 8 longer bolts to attach the bags , of course the rack has beed powdercoated. Everything else is #1
See pictures.

For the top case , i bought a rear rack for the Honda Shadow ($50) and i will make some braket powdercoated for install it over the passenger seat because i never use it , i don't want my rack over the rear fender. So stay tuned , i will post some pics in a few weeks . I will not buy a GIVI topcase but i will use it for my Saddleman rear seat bags . But this set-up will accept the universal GIVI base plate. In my case i will not use GIVI stuff.

Bought my Valk on July 17th. Mods to date: Added the Show Chrome LED rectangular fog lights for increased visibility. Picked up a used set of Corbin Fleetliner bags from a wonderful gentleman in Iowa and now I've taken a Givi monolock top case I had from a 2003 scooter I had and added that. The top case needs to be sanded and painted to match the bike but its a close enough blue to throw it on there for a week or so till I can get around to repainting it.

Corbin sells hard case luggage made for the 2014-2015 Valkyrie F6C, matching color looks great but who going to pay 1800 Dollars? What the best black saddlebags leather for my 2014 F6C?

I bought this case off ebay for like 45.00 dollars. Formed some brackets out of 7/32" al. I used the mounting plate that came with the top case so it is a quick release and leaves the flat rack in place.
I only ride bikes so I have to have something to haul groceries or supplies on a daily basis.
Here is the Ebay link if interested.

I think it follows the lines of the bike very well from the side. And it doesnt appear as big in real as it does in the photo. Overall I am very happy with it.

I'm a bit confused. Are you mounting this case to the passenger grab rails? It doesn't look like you have a luggage rack installed.
