What are people using for Storage boxes in the Talon X? I can't afford $600.00 for the Honda OEM one.

Thanks,

Here are the details of the box.

I installed it with Clevis pins, fender washers and hairpin cotters from Tractor Supply to mount it without straps yet can easily be removed. Here is the inside of the box.

This 125 L box may not be a permanent solution but it is working well until a better yet affordable solution arises in the aftermarket since Honda is so proud of their 90 L cargo box.

Husky box from home depot. Some u bolts and some tie downs. $98 for everything and took 10-15 minutes to install. Just have to take the wheels and handle off the box

Amazon has a aluminum storage box that is very good for the talon.
Lock and hinge are stainless steel. Side handels for tie down.
Size 30x13x13 Name Brain # BR 302
Hope this helps. Garey

I stole your idea used a rubber maid 24 gallon "go packer?" $25 from wal mart. Used the existing holes like you except I ran bolts up from the bottom, tightened in place with a washer and fender nut, put a plastic spacer then fender washer on top of that to make it level with main part of bed. Then on inside put rubber fender washer with steel fender washer on top, secured with plastic screw on knobs. If i need to remove I can without tools and then put the knobs back on to protect the bolts and cargo. May have overthought it a bit I think your system is simpler. Did same with sons Can Am Mav trail using the q link attachment slots. Just ground elevator bolts down to fit into slots and did same procedure.

We followed someone else's idea and bought an $80 box from Tractor Supply Co. It fits perfectly in the rear of the Talon and we put a large soft cooler inside on one side, all our gear on the other side. It did take a little work to install- bought steel D rings and nylon quick-release straps to lock it down to the 4 existing D rings. Also put a strip of foam weather stripping around the edge and 2 T-handle latches to cinch down the lid. No rattle and it's nice and snug. Total cost under $100. Pics below.
