Fitting the Givi was really a pain in the butt, and it took several weeks of thinking (I’m not that bright) before I came up with a solution.
The brackets are in two parts, one part that’s permanently fitted to my bike, and one that is fitted to the wingrack. So now, installing the wingrack is done by 4 allen screws (a 5 minute job). The wingrack is located pretty far from the center of the bike, due the rather wide tail of the bike, but as long as the topcase plate is tightened properly, the rack is actually pretty stable. Note the small reinforcement on the bracket for the wingrack, don’t omit it – all weight is carried in this point.
The bracket that is permanently installed to the bike is the hard one to make. It consists of three parts: Two brackets (one on each side of the bike) and a large H-shaped bracket located under the rear seat.
