Just to report that I've made a hand made aluminium structure for mounting a top case on it. I'll test it in a very few days and I'll keep you informed. Is not nice at all but it's practical, I hope.
Yes please ☺Just arrived from holidays. The hand made top case has been phenomenal. Is not nice at all but it's practical for its capacity and for the comfort of the passanger. I'm happy with the results. I can post a picture if someone is interested to see how it looks the TV with a top case mounted.
My girlfriend feels much more secure with the top box. We try not to overload it, but we did travel with 5kg of gear in the box and her leaning to it and she was still on the bike once I arrived to a destination. I guess that proves the grab handles are strong enough even for top box application.Hi guys, I have bought a spare grab rail and an sw motech adaptor plate for givi. Planning to try to create my own top box arrangement. Concerned though over additional loading on the grab rail and the 4 fixing bolts attaching it to the frame. In my mind although the grab rail will have been designed to take the load of the passenger leaning on it, I suspect the load of them leaning on the top box will increase this load? Am I over thinking it? Have you had any issues?
I will add solution I have on my bike.
