Wanted - 39L top box

I just bought a 2017 fjr in the U.K. and imported it to Ireland. The bike is in the tech graphite (grey) colour. I have the panniers in tech graphite but I am still looking for a 39L top box in the same colour but to my understanding they only make the 50L top boxes in Europe now. I need the smaller top box as the larger top box won’t fit going down the narrow side of my house on the bike. Does anybody know where I can buy a new or second hand 39L top box in Europe, thanks.

Have you considered going with an aftermarket offering from either SHAD or Givi? If you are unable to locate a 39L factory box either of those companies can supply a very nice box to fit your needs.


Many of us prefer the aftermarket boxes over the factory offerings. Also, the SHAD and Givi are much cheaper.

Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.

I have but I just don’t think they look right on the bike as the panniers are genuine Yamaha. I will be buying one if I am unable to get one buy the end of August as I need one for going to Europe in September

I used to have to ride without the panniers because I parked the FJR in the back yard and had to go through a narrow gate.

Pardon me for questioning you but I can't believe that the 50 liter box is wider than the handlebars???

Thats what I thought originally as I was going to get a 50L but my friend also has a 2017 fjr with a 50L top box and it wouldn’t fit down the side of the house

The bike originally could not fit as the mirrors did not fold in as far as my previous 2014 fjr so I had to adjust them so they would fold enough for me to fit. I also got engine sliders fitted to find out the bike also wouldn’t fit
