What I Think Of The RJays Universal Super
Value for money at $150.00 is exceptional, considering the
BMW topbox was around $800. I opted for the cheaper option and
although the RJay’s unit comes with a universal mounting
bracket, it wasn’t an easy fit for the R1200GS.
I have seen the topbox on many other motorcycles and they
all used the universal bracket and it looked like it fitted
fine. I think it was just the shape of the rack on the Beemer
and I curse all of you who fitted this box easy.
Now, back to the Topbox itself. It’s strong
and mounts well to it’s universal bracket. The key and lock
work fine. I haven’t tried it for dustproof but it certainly
keeps the rain out and has been watertight through some big
The shape is pretty cool and it easily holds a full face
helmet. There is a rubber backrest for the pillion and the key
both unlocks the top and also unlocks access to the red spring
clip which holds it on the bike. You can see the red button
just under the keyhole.
I drilled holes in mine and fitted stainless steel brackets
(loops) on the four corners of mine and this allows me to tie
stuff up on top, like another bag.
As you can see the BMW bag straps on nicely.
This bag also will hold a full face to give you an idea of
size. Maybe drilling holes in the new topbox isn’t for
everyone? But I reckon it adds versatility and at $150 we
are not playing with sheep stations. It’s still waterproof
and has not compromised the strength at all.
All in all the RJay’s Topbox is great
value for money, strong, waterproof, versatile and in most
cases easy to fit. I would need to do a whole other podcast
about fitting it to the R1200GS. But as mentioned most other
bikes it fits easily.
