Fitting Givi topbox and Rack
« on: July 07, 2017, 02:36:22 PM »
This is the second time ive tried to post this today !! Fitted my new GIVI rack and top box today. Instead of about an hour it took three bloody hours due to the fact that the rear end of the bike has to be dismantled to fit the bracket you see in the first pic. Its a bloody nightmare ! Info says four bolts to be removed and replaced......WRONG !! You cant fit it without dismantling all the wiring loom which means removal of the under tray which cant be done due to the security bolts on the ecu cover !! Then you need to remove the seat panel and the rear light unit, and there are two bloody self tappers you have to remove to get the tail pack to drop and you cant get at them without the panel being down so you have to force it which isn't  very good for the panel mountings!! Once it is fitted its straight forward, thank Christ because I was swearing like a trooper because of the poor design not only of the bracket but those two bloody screws that you can hardly get at. I just hope that the wiring loom is not trapped between the bracket and the the under tray of the bike because once its in place you cant see the wirings position !! Such a crap design !!
I used the following
GIVI 4100FZ MONORACK ARMS Top Box RACK + M8B BLACK PLATE + A Givi V47NN Monokey 47 Litre Motorcycle Top Box in matt black, however they sent me a Carbon one by mistake (£35 dearer)lol

Yeah, and it wasn't too expensive at £250 direct from DVLA and I have one that's similar for my car.

Was thinking about getting the top case rack aswel, thanks for the heads up!  Any more useful pointers? Do you happen to have a pic of the security bolts, so I can prepare myself for the battle ahead?  :001:

I didn't remove them, I just had to force down the under tray to allow access to those two bloody self tappers that hold the tail pack to the under tray. If you remove the rear seat and look where the toolkit is kept there are four nice looking Allan studs that hold the tail pack section on these have to be removed, but underneath there are also two feckin self tappers that hold the tail pack to the plastic under tray that have to be removed before you can fit the bracket.The security bolts are easily visible when you remove the riders seat. On the offside of the bike in the same spot you will see the connections that need to be removed to allow fitment of the loom through the bracket, 1x Grey 1x Black and 1x White double one.PITA
