Micatech Pilot Cases include all the elements required for long distance riding. The stylish cases feature strong, aluminum construction and a wide, side opening door for easy access to gear.

The Pilot Cases are semi-side loading, with a deep well so that gear doesn’t fall out when you open the door.  The advantage of side loaders is that gear strapped to the top of the case doesn’t have to be removed to access the contents. Integrated handles eliminate catch points and allow a variety of straps to be completely looped through to tie gear down to the top. The design of the door and weatherproofing gasket keep water and dust out of your cases.

The compression latch can be closed and latched securely, and can be left unlocked or locked while riding. The latch draws the door up against the gasket evenly to affect a better weather seal.

Pilot Mounting System
The Pilot Mounting System is rugged, simple and functional. Side cases slide on and off with ease. The mounting brackets follow the lines of the frame. The mounting system is nearly invisible when the cases are off the bike.

The design is extremely robust: ¾” thick aluminum mounting brackets combined with ¼” stainless steel brackets support anodized aluminum bullets. Three mounting blocks are attached to each side case and then slide onto the frame mounted bullets. Three internal thumbscrews, when tightened, engage a slot in the stainless steel support brackets and rear cross bar. Locking tabs prevent the thumbscrews from loosening. A rear stabilizing cross bar prevents the cases from swaying or flopping. Mounting hardware for the R1200GS Adventure is powder coated black to match the bike frame.

Installation is straightforward and requires a basic understanding of hand tools and mechanical knowledge. No cutting or drilling is required. Narrower turn signals are required (and included) for the R1150GS & GSA and R1100GS Models.

NO muffler modification/relocation required.
