I know about the weak top rack on the Himalayan but I was looking at the Shad 29L that weighs 7 pounds. That falls under the 7.5 pound max weight of the factory top rack. The reason I was looking at a top box is that I’m getting tired of carrying my helmet into stores. I own a Shoei helmet and their $200 transition shield, so I won’t be locking my helmet to my bike. I will only use the top box to store my helmet when the bike is parked. Do you think the 7 pound box will cause a problem with the rack breaking if it’s at the upper range of the weight limit?
