It does. Take your time laying out the holes. If i had to do it over again, id move the box back an inch. Its a bit tricky to remove the seat.

Ordered a Kolpin rear Outfitter box yesterday, it looks to be huge which is what 'm looking for. I had gotten a Kolpin Matrix rear seat bag and man was that thing small, and the straps didn't fit right. Think I'll be glad with all the room the Outfitter box is gonna have, I'll keep ya posted.

I am a cheapskate! I bought a Cabela's brand rear cargo box using my Cabela's club points. It will do anything I need a cargo box to do.

I bought the rear cargo box made by Yamaha. $174 direct from the dealer. No holes to drill and includes all the mounting hardware. I like that it nests right into the rear rack so it's solid and secure. It replaces the two rear rack bolts with longer bolts and provides mounting brackets for the front. I've had no problems with it leaking after multiple water crossings and even pressure washing. Highly recommended.

I have the Yamaha box. For the most part I like it. I don't like that the lid shoots off if you fart to hard while riding.

I am going to cut some rubber spacers and see if I can tighten it up a bit more. Other than that I really like it and I think it will be an easy fix.

Do you guys got pics of the Yamaha box?
I'm twisting in the wind trying to figure out which box is built well and with a good seal in the upper lid.

I've not had any issues with the lid coming off. Has it done that since new, maybe it's a defect. I've been impressed with the amount of abuse, water and even pressuring washing the box will take without leaking. I was a little concerned about the pressure washing, but happily had no issues. It does have a drain plug but I've never had to use it.

better late than never. Here's some pics of my yamaha box. The last picture shows some of the mud we went through with no leaks inside the box. I use the tab intended to mount a flag to hold the padlock while I'm out on the trail. Keeps it readily available to lock the box when I stop for food and fuel.

I may see if I can swap them out for some like yours. I don't think they had rearboxes in mind when they designed our rear fenders. Ha!
