2015 Luggage /topbox rack
on: October 06, 2015, 11:48:11 AM
 :062:I've been looking for options to use my Givi Monokey case on my 2015 CR and decided to go with the SW Motech Alu rack and Givi adapter. Pretty solid set-up and the wife says there's a lot of space to sit relaxed.

Looks good.

I was considering just getting the universal monokey plate and replacing the plate on the Honda rack that came with the bike.

Anybody tried this?

Nice one.

Let us know how you get on as I am finding the Honda top box a bit small for my commuting needs.

My Givi B47 Blade top box came today with the fittings and universal plate ...but the plate is to big for the Honda bracket ...pooo......so I have just emailed the place I bought it from to see if there is another part that is required to fit......not to happy at the moment.. :021: :021: :021:

That's not good I was hoping it would just be a case of removing the Honda plate and attaching the Givi one in its place.

I thought the Givi one had a honeycomb like design so it would fit any size bracket depending on what holes you use on the plate.

Let us know whether you get it sorted.

Good luck

This is the reply I got back from the company......so I'm afraid its going back......

this article is a universal product which can be used for many different vehicles. Due to the variety of models and uses a precise indication of the use on your scooter, motorcycle or quad is not possible.

If it does not fit on your vehicle, you can send it back to us. Then we will make a refund.

Oh well, that is the universal plate idea out of the equation then.

I didn't really want to go to the expense and hassle of fitting an entire new rack as well as buying a larger top box.

When funds allow I might invest in the SW Motech Blaze soft panniers instead which look quite good for commuting. I will use the Honda top box as well for keeping my helmet or other stuff I want to keep secure in when parked up in town.

The Blaze panniers can't be made secure like hard luggage but should be easy enough to take with me off the bike.

Thanks for the info on the Givi parts.
