    Hi DSRider650;

    Saw your tutorial on tank lift / air filter replacement. It was great and thanks for that.

    Somewhere in that thread you said you were planning a tutorial on the valve clearance inspection / adjustment. Have you done this yet? Will you post it on a stromtrooper forum if / when you do?

    Thanks;

    Hi,

    A few months ago, you wrote this in reference to top cases on the DL650 Adventure:

    "mount kit - perhaps they are still working on it?

    The top top plate is a SW Motech item, yes?

    (EdiT) I had a second and third look at the top plate. It may not be set up to accept Givi Tabs directly, but does look to have a set of holes to accept the Givi baseplate. I suppose this is the same as my KLR install. the Givi Baseplate sits atop the factory rear rack.

    So I'll find the baseplate and be able to swap the case between bikes."

    I just got an adventure and would like to get a non-OEM top case also. Did your idea work? Did it fit just fine? What all did you have to order?

    Thank you for your time.
