Het self 2 maande gelede vir my die motorradical panniers en topbox stel aangeskaf - afgesien van die rubbers om die rand van die Globescout bokse wat bietjie beter seel (bygese die Globescout's is 2x duurder) is ek super beinddruk met die motorradicals en sal dit sonder huiwering weer in die toekoms koop.

It's just under R13k for both panniers and the topbox with the locks already fitted etc.

Title: Some additional questions on the Motoradicals
Post by: Vanjea on March 17, 2015, 03:30:48 pm
1. It seams the motoradical boxes have a higher/deeper lid than the equivalent globescout and BMW boxes. Is there an option for a cargo net to utilize the lid space?

2. What is the individual capacity of these panniers and top box? Similar to BMW or globescout?

3. Is there any specific reason that the lashing points of the panniers differ from those on the top-box?


I am really considering the Motoradicals from a price point. I wouldn't feel to bad to modify them at this price or to wreck one in the event of a fall. I like the black boxes(I also have a white GSA) and they are almost half the price of the globescouts. I got a quote for the BMW panniers..... 15.5k..... :o and then they only come in silver.

How do you find the heat in the box on the exhaust side?

Will it get hot enough in there to melt plastic items like sleeping bags etc?

I ask because my LC adventure melted my soft Oxford X50 panniers through a sheet metal heat shield i strapped onto the rack on the exhaust side.... ???

We did a 500km roundtrip to Ribbok kloof last weekend without any issues. I even wrapped the pannier bags in black refuse bags to ensure nothing gets wet due to all the rain but it was as good as new when we arrived there - no heat related issues. The only issue is without the panniers when SWAMBO's right leg is semi roasted by the Akrapovic!

Those locks are incredibly easy to fix. I would recommend saving the dow and fix it yourself. Once you open the lock and see the pins, you will see it's easy.

Hi  everyone. (think this might be my first post  ;) )
I am not happy with the Motorradical boxes at all. Firstly, they don't leak, they collect water. Somehow mine is always damp inside. When it actually rains, make sure everything inside is protected. I won't put anything like a camera in there.

The locks are extremely insecure. They are normal office cabinet locks. Mine stopped working about 4 months after getting the boxes.  I have to lube them regularly and the keys are already bent.

They are not very strong. I put my bike down in the dirt and the pannier boxes are completely bent out of shape, torn at the seams etc, lids dont close, wasted basically. I must admit i dont know what other panniers would have done in the same scenario, so maybe judging a bit harshly here.

They are very cheap compared to the competition, but again, you get what you pay for.

Hope this helps someone make an informed decision.

Who did you buy from?

I'm happy with mine. Key issue with topbox, but no other worries so far. Fell in mud over weekend, right pannier took most of impact without as much as a scratch.

Maybe you could take it up directly with Motorradical as I am sure if there is a defect in the manufacturing of your boxes they would assist
or as Noneking recommended retailer if not bought directly for M/Radical
All the well known brand's have excellent after sales service , so if there is a defect i'm sure they will assist
