Givi F242 Top Case Mount
Posted 13 May 2012 - 10:15 AM
It seems that Givi still makes the top box kit F242, and a couple of vendors carry it. Does anybody have experience with this setup? Photos would be appreciated, as well as a weight limit!

I have not yet tested it with an installed top box while riding. I mearly installed it to see if it would fit.
I did have clearance issues with my Highmount exhaust and I had to modify the mounting brackets.
I have pictures of the kit mounted without the fairings....I'll find them and post them up.

You have to trim a slot in the inner finder (black part) to fit the forward mounting brackets and sand the edge of the tail section underneath (the red part) a little.
Here is a pic of the case mounted:
This is the edge I had to trim with a dremel to clear the tail section. I forgot to get a picture of the trimmed inner fender, but it's barely noticeable and just a slot:
You can remove the whole rack by taking out four bolts, leaving only these tabs. You don't even have to take the seat off, but I'll probably paint them both to match later:

The holes to mount this to the subframe are already there correct, no need to drill the frame?
Correct. No frame drilling required
