Finding the right accessory for your motorcycle is not always easy!
That is why we have put together a small list of questions that arise frequently.
Here we clarify all questions about ordering online / offline.
Despite all the descriptions and pictures there are still unanswered questions ...
Every motorcycle offers different options for mounting luggage, protective parts or other accessories.
Depending on the motorcycle model, we have different systems on offer:
1. Lock-it side case carrier:

4. C-Bow holder:
Special side holder to mount cases and bags in the C-Bow version.
5. Alurack top case carrier:
For assembling Hepco & Becker topcases. Universal top cases with a plastic plate do not fit.
6. Easyrack top case carrier:
For assembling Hepco & Becker topcases. Universal top cases with a plastic plate and the Orbit top case do not fit.
Functionality is the same as the aluminum rack, except that the upright bar can be folded down when the top case is not in use.

Model-specific tubular luggage rack for mounting Hepco & Becker topcases. Universal top cases with plastic plate,
as well as the Orbit topcase do not fit.

10. Luggage rack extension:
Rear widening for attaching luggage rolls or large bags. Topcase assembly not possible.
11. Tube bag holder for leather bags:

12.Lock-it tank ring system:

13. Engine and tank protection bars:
Model-specific protection bars which protect the driver and machine in the event of an accident.
In general, several parts can always be combined with one another. E.g. top case carrier and side case carrier.
If there are any restrictions, this is stated on the instructions or on the product itself.
As model-specific parts, we refer to products that only fit on a specific bike. e.g. pannier racks or engine protection bars.
Cases and bags, on the other hand, can be used universally and fit on the available carriers on many machines.
You can always find model-specific parts under the My Bike selection on the home page or the menu pages.
You can find suitable cases, bags and other universally usable parts in the main menu or for the carrier product itself as an accessory recommendation on the respective product detail page below.
If you already have an article number for the product in question, you can enter it in the search field on the home page.

We can deliver spare parts promptly for almost every product. A key, a complete locking mechanism or even a replacement component for a pannier rack.
1. Key / lock cylinder:
You can order these directly from us in the onlineshop. They can be found in the main menu under the spare parts.
To get the right key, we need the key number. This is either on the key or, in the case of older cases, on the outside of the lock cylinder, where you insert the key, next to the slot.
2. Complete lock mechanism
You can order case locks directly here in the online shop.
You can find various locks in the spare parts in the main menu.
3. Spare parts for luggage racks, protection bars or similar:
Universal spare parts for carriers can be found under spare parts in the main menu.
Model-specific straps for pannier racks, individual pages or screw kits can only be ordered via email. The quickest way is to download the installation instructions stored with the product here in the shop and pick out the individual parts.

Matching cases and bags can be found in the main menu.
The tank bag system from Hepco & Becker is a quickly removable lock-it system. 2 products are required for this:
a model-specific tank ring including tank bag counter holder
a tank bag from Hepco & Becker.
The tank ring is mounted on the tank cap, the tank bag counter holder, which is included with the tank ring, on the bag: Done!
The tank cap can be opened without any problems after the tank ring has been fitted.
When using a second tank bag on a tank ring, an additional locking unit is required when ordering.
This can be ordered separately: Article number: 506000
Here is a short video to explain the functionalities of the system:

You can find mounting instructions for almost every product as a .pdf file.
No ABE or entry in the papers is required for add-on parts such as luggage systems or e.g. engine protection bars. Proof of the general operating permit (ABE) is only required for center stands and our twinlights.
You can find it at the respective center stand or twinlight on the product pages as a PDF download.
In addition, we have the general ABE for download here as a pdf:
In general, the assembly of almost all parts can be accomplished with a little manual skill without any problems. If you are not sure, please ask at your trusted specialist workshop or contact us directly. We offer an in-house cultivation service, which can be used by prior arrangement.
We enclose detailed installation instructions with every product. An assembly should be able to be carried out on the basis of this. It is helpful to read these instructions before purchasing. This way you can better assess whether you should do the assembly yourself or at least the specialist workshop. Installation instructions are available for each product in the web shop.
As a rule, no special tools are required for assembly.
Due to the manufacturing tolerances of our model-specific products and the tolerances of the motorcycle manufacturers, these tolerance classes may overlap. In exceptional cases, this can lead to problems during assembly.
In the event of installation problems, proceed as follows:
Before starting the installation, read the installation and assembly instructions carefully.
If necessary, observe the special instructions given on installation on the service information sheet and the installation instructions. You can also download the general service booklet.
When mounting, first screw in all screws loosely. Only when all screws have been screwed into the thread should you gradually tighten all screws with the specified torque.
Should you still get stuck, we'd be happy to help! Send us a description and, if possible, 2-3 pictures that clearly show the problem. We will then find a solution to the problem!
Apart from the following general information, please note the installation instructions stored with the product plus model-specific restrictions!
Hard shell side case on the case carrier = 10 kg per side case
Top cases on a top case carrier (Alurack, Easyrack, tubular luggage rack) = 3-5 kg in the top case
C-Bow holder = 5 kg per side pocket
Sportrack = 7 kg In the case of higher loads, it is recommended that the luggage is lashed with the entire rear at the same time. Locking a pillion seat is usually only designed for a seat load from top to bottom. In the case of potholes, for example, great forces act in both directions if luggage is only lashed to the sports rack.
Please note product-specific information as well as information from the motorcycle manufacturer.
They are recommendations. This information may vary depending on the model.
2. Maximum speed:
When using luggage systems, a maximum speed of 130 km / h is specified.
Attachment parts can change the motorcycle's center of gravity to its disadvantage.
This can lead to a change in the handling characteristics of the motorcycle.

Chrome-plated and powder-coated parts have a sensitive surface. Make
sure that no sharp edges damage the coating, otherwise moisture will penetrate
underneath and peel it off.
Therefore, repaint damaged areas immediately and protect them against
corrosion. Stainless steel as a material is easy to care for, but not
For cleaning, we recommend clear, lukewarm water, washing-up liquid and
a soft cloth. Then rinse immediately and rub dry to avoid streaking. After
drying, treat with polish, which forms a dirt-repellent protective film and
allows water to roll off.
Do not use steel wool, scouring powders, cleaners that contain strong
acids (such as lime scale remover), chloride-containing detergent and silver
Care instructions for chrome-plated surfaces:
·Clean chrome-plated parts on a regular basis with lukewarm water and the
cleaning additives approved for motor bike or car care. (The frequency depends
on the time of year and how dirty your vehicle is.)
·Always dry chrome-plated parts after cleaning so as to prevent the
formation of water spots caused by lime residue.
·Abrasive residue deposits can form over time and damage the surface of chrome-plated
parts, especially in inaccessible areas of the vehicle. (Use suitable tools
such as long-handled brushes to reach such areas when cleaning).
·Chrome-plated parts should be polished on a regular basis, even if the
chrome-plated surface still looks very clean. Doing so can remove abrasive dirt
residue from the microscopic scratches on the surface. (This cleaning and
polishing process can be performed with virtually any commercially available
chrome care products.)
·A slightly more effective treatment is required for chrome-plated
surfaces where heavy deposits have already formed. But even these badly
affected surfaces can usually be treated to remove all residue.
Care instructions for Legacy line:
exclusively recommended to handwash with lukewarm water and appropriate for the
material involved washing agent. Better often and with less washing agent than
rarely with plenty of washing agent. Rough dirt can be cleaned with a smooth
brush and clear water. For cleaning the lining it‘s recommended to use hand
warm soapy solution. Follow up with carefuly squeezing it with clear water.
Do not wash or skid in washing machine. Color or handle feeling can be loosed
by incorrect cleaning.
Tips for leather: To prevent a natural aging of the leather it is recommended to use our
high-quality Legacy leather care. The leather mount the fluid immediatly,
secures against drying and increases the persistence as well as the weather
Tips for textil: The used material is pretreated dirt- and water-repellent and also
coated one-sided, but we recommend another sealing of the material. It is
approved to refresh the waterproofing of the bag in dry condition as needed and
after every cleaning. Ideally is a spray textile proofer, because the outside
material can be directly treated. With heat input, for example with a hair
dryer with low temperature in a 10-15 cm distance, you can reactivate the
waterproof effect. Warm the dry bag, impregnate it and afterwards input heat
Tips for stitches: Products for stitch sealing are mostly sold in small bottles with an
applicator in the lid, which has to be rolled over the stitches.
Tips for accessories: Rough-running metal zipper‘s can be easily and reliable fixed with wax,
lead or oil.
Care instructions for Xtravel, Royster, Street Serie:
To clean the
bags, use a warm soapy water at around 50°C and a soft cloth or sponge. Do not
use organic solvents such as petrol or thinners. Also suitable for maintenance
is a textile proofer. Attention: Spray only on the fabric surfaces of the
bags, not on plastic parts of the motorcycle and the holding system.
