    Drilling holes in top box

    I have the standard silver honda top box on my 19 crosstourer, I want to fit a rack to the the top of the box so I can carry a roll bag on it, has anyone drilled holes into the box, does it split or crack and will it carry the weight of a medium size roll bag?

    Hello Twobarstrev,

    I drilled the top of my top box and fitted four marine eye bolts to allow the strapping of my tent on there !!

    Never had a problem !   :152: :047:

    Good luck with yours.

    Wack

    Its plastic, drill small pilot holes first.  Maybe install rubber/neoprene washers and flat metal washers to span the stress when torqued
