Yes I used the 4 (8mm X 1.25 thread roof nuts) The bolts are about 4 inches long and allow for the bolt to go thru the stock nut far enough to add a jam nut. The cross bars are alum rectangle tubing 1/2" X 1 1/2" X 1/8" wall. The rack is just that Harbor Freight rack with the center section not used. You will need 2 short piece of alum rod one 7/8" and one 5/8" dia to take the place of the center section. I bought a foot of each and cut them in half as you need 1 of each size on each side of the rack. I have seen ppl use wooden dowels too. I sanded and painted the rack as the reviews said the paint sucked. The bolts come down thru the alum tubing with 2 nuts between the tubing and the factory nuts. One nut holds the tubing against the bolt head, and the other holds the roof down, and I used the stock grommets. The jam nut really firms everything up and locks the bolt from turning. I used it this Saturday for the first time, and had a dry bag with about 40# in it on the rack and no issues.
Are you still liking the Sterilite box? Does it keep dust out?I got a box from Walmart
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.
By any chance do you remember the size/length of clevis pin you used? Any info is much appreciated, maybe save me some extra trips to the hardware store. Kris
I used 3/8" x 2" and 3/16" x 2", each with several holes but quite honestly it worked but was a pita at times to get the hairpin cotters in. I changed my box mounting to a couple plates and machine screws.By any chance do you remember the size/length of clevis pin you used?

Do you know the part number for this? I purchased a similar one, but found it to be way too tall. The others are not as wide as yours. Thanks
I saw one at an event that had Talon demo rides. It looked really nice and fit well but as everyone knows, they are (were) very expensive. I didn't get to look at the mounting because there was stuff in the box. There were some reports of the box not locking into place and being able to wiggle around. Apparently, they were recalled. I haven't heard anything about them for several months now.Anyone know what happened to the Honda storage box? You can find the part number but none exist anywhere.
