    Finally got in my new topcase after weeks of waiting.
    I went with the E251 universal bracket just in case.
    The bracket was super easy to mount after getting some longer bolts from the local hardware store.
    I like that the kit came with all black hardware too.

    It looks just a tad large by itself but I love the space in it and it's a quality case.

    Nothing wrong with BIG if you're touring. When I get mine I plan to leave it off the bike most of the time, and use the BMW side cases. The Givi will be only for touring. I plan to get the LED tail light kit, too. And a passenger back rest.

    I was gonna say....that's not an original GT seat. Neither standard nor "comfort." Never seen a "low" seat in the wild, though.

    Do you like it? If so, why complain?

    Cliff: Can you turn the helmet in the picture and get 2 in there? Like to have that option for a lunch stop while not in touring mode.

    Givi claims that 2 helmets will fit unless they are modular types, in which case you'll only get 1 to fit. I'm guessing that 2 would be very cramped under any circumstances.

    I like to carry my helmet into restaurants, etc, if only to explain why I'm dressed so oddly.

    I was able to get my two modular helmets in and close it without it feeling like I have to force it closed. They are pretty snug in there and there is not any room for anything else while they're in there.
    Not sure if you could get any two XL or larger helmets in together without having to really wedge them in there.

    Left = Shoei Neotec Large
    Right = Bell Revolver Evo Large

    I plan to use this as my primary luggage and only put on the side cases when I need more storage.
    I use this bike to commute any day it's not raining or below 30 and it's awkward to fit a pack with clothes/shoes, lunch box and a laptop in the side cases (the laptop does not really fit well but I can get it in the right side if there is nothing else in there).

    Now that is a big case! Glad you posted pics. I've been trying to visualize just how big "big" is. Looks like 47 L is plenty big. It rivals the stock case on the K1200LT. I was tempted to get the 55 L, but that would be downright silly.

    Cliff: Thanks for the pics and info. You've helped me decide on the topcase to replace my BMW sandwich holder. Anyone want to purchase a BMW topcase in excellent conditon? Guaranteed not to crush the bread when you haul a ham sandwich.

    I have this case. It is outstanding. How much weight should safely be put into this case? The case is easy to install. I had no problems with the bolts being too short as I have read in other posts. The base is tailor made for the GT's luggage rack. It installs very easily. Simply insert the key, push the lower button and slid it on and it locks right in as solid as a rock. Looks great too. Mine has an aluminum top that meshes nicely with the look of the bike. Really adds functionality for me when I leave the bike to take photos.

    You only need longer bolts for the universal bracket, not the GT specific one.

    Great info on the case. I have a Givi V46 case sitting waiting for the dealer to provide the universal mounting plate. It is taking forever to arrive. Cliff where did buy yours from? I may contact them and see if they will ship to Australia. Can't be any slower than the Australian distributor is taking. The v46 has heaps of room and will take 2 helmets too or one helmet and my jacket.

    I had a long wait as well as it had to come in from Italy. Fortunately for me I live 4 miles from the giviusa warehouse and compacc is only 15 miles away. Once they got it from givi I had it next day.

    Help!

    For the GT specific Givi topcase adaptor it appears you have to remove two of the inner bolts for the inner rack. Does anybody know what kind of drivers these require? They look like star pattern screwdrivers (or a large Torx) driver. Once the bolts are removed the Givi ones go right in there and would seem to add extra stability to the mounting for their case.

    Do you know what size bolts, length and diameter you uesed please? My givi box and universal plate arrives on Monday so wanted to prepare. Thanks for the great pictures, the one of the underside of the rack is really useful to me. T J.

    As this thread is over 5 years old, there's a good chance Cliff is no longer active. I took the original Givi bolts to a local hardware store and told them I needed these to be one inch longer. They worked great. Can't answer your other questions but someone who can will respond.

    1 - You might find you leave it on all the time, I rarely take mine off because I often need the space if I stop somewhere and get something. Plus if riding 2-up and we stop somewhere the BMW side cases only holds one of our helmets.

    2 - I hear the LED tail light kits aren't very bright - useful at night, but not so much during the day. You might want to research that.

    3 - My passenger has no issue with the box behind her and said she didn't have any need for a back rest on the top box. You might save a few dollars there.

    I had my daughter on the back of one of my bikes once without a top box. When we stopped, I found out that she was hanging onto the hand rails for dear life. We were riding into some strong winds and it was trying to pull her off. She couldn't take a hand off the hand rail to let me know, because she'd come off. I'll never take her without something there to give her some support.

    To emphasise what has been said ∆∆∆∆∆ my wife won't pillion without the box in place.

    However, riding solo on a day out I much prefer to use the top box and leave the side ones at home. If nothing else you can filter more easily or squeeze through some tight gap when parking up.
