tenny80 yeah i'm not worried about it, I took the one off the top case so they are all the same. I've had several top cases that never had a plug for the keyhole and never had an issue with any of them.

Bugzy You can choose, dirt in keyhole, or bugs.

I never had a problem with my locks and have used them on two 6000 km trips on dirt roads including the Dempster this year. It would have been nice if the panniers included the plastic lock cover like the top box has, but it doesn't seem to get as much dirt as the top box, I guess the air doesn't blow the same on the sides as it does in the middle.

Unlike the top box which does have a cover since the key hole has be facing the back.

But there is no problem opening the 37 litre Outback side case with the 42 litre topbox, opening either from the front or the back.

Thanks I dont feel as bad about putting them backwards now haha. I have the 58L top case, facing back is the only way to go.

Bugzy The Kappa box uses Monokey mounts, the Outback uses a CAM side carrier, so the racks are different, actually the racks are likely the same, just a different connection method. I guess that was enough for them to make a different name for the same box. Not sure why the prices are so different.

Same reason GM makes Cadillacs and Buicks and Shivolays.

Thighrod I'll be watching too. Thinking of upgrading to a 58l and would love to see how it looks.
