The box kind of jostles around when mounted as well. It's not a completely snug fit.
The downside is the lock cylinder. Mine just broke and for the type of riding I do this is extraordinarily unacceptable for the small amount of off road riding that I do. I was riding to work, blammo, my case is now spinning around on the freeway. This rack system really is over engineered for what it is. The more parts, the more room for fallacy. For a 350 dollar rack, I shouldn't be buying replacement parts in my first year. The lock is designed to break away in case of an accident, but it shouldn't be breaking away from every day wear and tear around town. I would rather lose my box in a crash from crashing, rather than just having it randomly fall off riding down the freeway..........! My box is mounted to a DR650 and I had to apply a foam tape just beneath the lock because the rack mounting cracked my upper tail light lens.
In this picture you can see how the lock sheared at the point of contact entirely. Without the rubber baffles on there the box rattles itself around to the point that I think I would have had this issue 6 mos. ago. (Posted on 7/8/14)
