Givi Top Box

Post by Lrg34 » Fri Jul 26, 2013 8:38 pm

Just fitted Givi arms, plate and top box to GSX650F. Must say it was so simple I thought I must have got it wrong! So far so good, let's see what happens on the road.

Once you get using it then maybe give a bit of a more in depth review?......capacity, ease of use, any affect on the bikes handling, etc....... 8-)

There not all easy to fit on the fz1 you have to pretty much remove the tail section and cut some holes in it to fit the rails but they are excellent and even fully loaded I can't tell the difference in handling.

I opted for the monokey box which apparently is designed more for large scooter use, whatever that means. I chose the 30 ltr box which is the baby of the bunch not on cost but it seemed the most suitable. I was concerned the larger 47 litre box would effect rear vision and the 30 ltr box sits perfectly behind me and doesnt interfere at all.

Haven't noticed any difference in handling, drag, noise etc so really quite chuffed. Dead easy to remove if not required and top quality fixings, build. Very solid feel, no vibrations.

Sounds like I struck lucky though with the fixing points.
