    I read a bunch of replies then jumped ahead, hope I didn't miss the answer to MY issue!

    I added a rack to the top of the box on my F3 Limited, easy with the supplied 'dimples'. But now the box lid will not stay open. I carried a stick on my trip to AK last year but would like to figure out a better solution. Unlike the RT boxes (I guess), the F3 doesn't use a strut but the 'springs?' are built into the hinges. Any thoughts?

    If 2020+ how many have installed and if so how is it working? This looks like a non returnable item.

    I went to McmasterCarr and got a new strut for my seat, you can call them with you info or work it out from the information in the book, in most cases you can get a strut with the right dimensions, and set up, and pick one with a stronger lift! I would take yours off and get all the dimensions, and give them a call, it would be faster and easyer. Good luck

    If anyone is interested, Lamonster now carries the strut for the trunk on the 2020+ models.

What I did on my 2020 and wife's 2021 was add a helper spring that goes over the strut.

    I picked the spring up at Home Depot. It was in a package of 4 springs. Two of this size and two smaller. I stretched the spring out until it was as long as the strut and then cut off the hooks.
    One end of the strut is pried off by pulling on the spring clip and the other is held on by a 5mm allen screw. The lid is held on by two bolt pins (T20 and 10mm) the left pin is longer then the right.
    The back rest pad is removed by taking out the two T20 screws in the box and then lifting it off.
    Hello, this is a super Idea, may I ask?
    could you please let me know the approx size, length & diameter of the spring?
    so I ca try and get something similar to fix my Back Top Case on my sea to sky!
    thank you in Advance!

    A small rubber door stop between the front of lid to seat back rest works great and for $2.98 a pair. On windy days, the oem strut does not always work. This works all the time. Adapt and improvise- military way of addressing situation.
