Givi Monolock
on: September 29, 2020, 09:54:55 PM
I ordered the BMW luggage rack thinking from the catalogue photo that it had a flat top, so my monolock plate would be a straightforward fit. It's a good quality rack but of course on receipt I found out that it is contoured to fit the bespoke BMW top box. Once I had the eye-watering quote for the top box I decided to fabricate something myself to enable the monolock plate to be fitted. I removed the top part of the rack and installed my plate, fabricated from two pieces of 4mm aluminium sheet. Very happy with the result, which has made a solid platform. Hopefully the photos are self explanatory.

Great job done there, I had exactly the same problem, I ordered the BM luggage rack hoping to fit my Givi top box, I removed the top rack just to see if I could fit another make I had in stock but to no avail. Can I ask where you got the Aluminium plate from IIlly
Looks very professional

Thanks for your kind comments.

I just ordered two pieces of 4mm aluminium sheet from ebay, there are lots of suppliers on there. You could probably get it cheaper from a merchant/stockholder if you have one local. I cut it with a cordless jigsaw with a metal cutting blade and did the final shaping with a disc and belt sander.

Bonjour à vous

Je viens de voir un top case qui m'a l'air d'être top., car on peut augmenter la contenance pour mettre les casques, il est articulé à l'arrière.
C'est un SHAD SH58X, en plus j'ai vu sur un site espagnol, Eurobikes, que le prix était attractif, 260 euros avec platine et dosseret...... livraison gratuite en France.
Je pensais acheter du GIVI mais je vais prendre le SHAD.
Je vais tenir compte de l'adaptation d'Andrew et adapter la platine sur le support BMW.
Je vous tiendrais au courant.

Belle fin de journée à vous tous.
Philippe.

C'est un bon prix et beaucoup moins cher qu’n USA. J'ai examiné un exemple et pense que le qualité et conception est bon. On dit que Shad fait les sacoches pour BMW.

C'est peut être le cas pour les valises.
Les supports sont différents des Givi et aussi plus discrets, avec l'attache du bas de la valise qui est sur un côté.
