Mk3 Top Box needed
« on: Jan 09, 2019, 06:38 PM »
Some c*** tried to pick my topbox lock and it's now useless. I'm looking for a Mk3 top box or similar. Thanks.

You can replace the lock mechanism if the case is not to dammaged as the K topbox is a Giving unit 😎😎

The casing of the barrel is unfortunately damaged, so I can't fix it. I've at least managed to unlock it so I can use it - albeit without the locking functionality. I might be looking to a larger size actually - if I can't find a reasonably priced used one. Does anyone have any experience with the Givi V56?

Not sure the situation in England, but some of we Yanks buy our Givi stuff from Motostorm in Italy.  Even with shipping across the pond, it's much less expensive than even the least expensive Givi vendor in the US.

Thanks, mate. I had a look at the prices and we actually have it cheaper here in UK  :5:

I found a Givi V56 for 180 and I bit tempted, although it will stretch my budget.

Q - Is the base of your topbox a MonoKey or MonoLock fixing  :question: :question:


There are a lot of other top box manufactures that use these fixings as well BUT the cost of their topbox are considerably less  :028: :028:
For example the 44L Homcom topbox can be had for only 24  :5:
It is a MonoKey fixing but you do get an adaptor plate to fix it to the bike as well :028:

They also do MonoLock 35L cases for ~20  :028:

I have had one of these generic cases on my Mk1 for the last 10 years and it is still going strong  :123A:
