    Help with Givi rack

    I have been fitting the Givi rack, but the rear arms go under the indicator and are pushing them up? Am I missing something.
    Thanks for your help 😳

    Oh no, I have discovered the problem.  :087:My bike has a tail tidy. This is the problem. Does anyone have the original BMW part I can fit?
    Thanks :763:

    some folks have developed 3D-printed adaptors for the indicators, so the tidy tail may work together with the givi rack.

    maybe you ask for a solution in a separate thread?

    Hi CWMC29,

    Thank you for your very useful link!

    I have contacted wheelbarrow directly and await his reply, failing that I can get the parts new from my local BMW dealer for around 95.

    They are in stock in Germany, but I don't know how long they will take to arrive in the UK.

    I guess wheelbarrow is on holiday or is keeping the parts as no reply, but that's Ok.

    I needed to order the missing BMW parts, but fortunately, I found them almost brand new for half the price on eBay :046:

    Now fitted which enabled my Givi rack and 47litre monkey box to be fitted :028:

    Well chuffed.

    I now have an SW Motech tail tidy available if anyone is interested :007:

    Thanks for your assistance :763:

    Bit late for JJB, but another option 'may' be to get a SW Motech Street Rack.  I say 'may' only because I assume SW Motech have designed their parts to fit together so their Street Rack might fit with their Tail Tidy.  I only have the Street Rack so can't verify.

    The advantage of the street rack is you can buy adapter plates to fit top boxes and other luggage.  I have atapter plates for my large Givi top box and my small BMW (Shad) top box.

    And once the adapter plates are removed (tool free in seonds) the rack itself is small and discreet.
