I too wondered about the removal Givi racks and didn't think that I wanted that option and the stationary ones have worked for me and have in the past. One thing about them is you could go with different bags if you wanted to, like Pelicans or Jessie Luggage, or bags of that type where you could just bolt them to the racks, then they would be removal. Nice article.

I bought the PLR532 racks and the Givi E36 bags.

I concur, these parts are different but there is not mention of it in the directions......in fact the directions really don't mention much of anything.



The front bracket mounted on the exhaust side....if you get them backwards there will be no space between the bracket and the side fairing.


The front bracket on the shifter side....


Finished product with E36 bags.....


You don't have to relocate the rear turn signals with the PLR532.

Hi,

I have a PL532 rack on the wee that I've just bought and need to move the panniers back as these racks position the panniers awkwardly for the gf to get on and off the bike. I was looking at the PLR532 racks as some of the photos that I have seen make it look as though they position a bit further back:

Would someone do me a huge favour who has the quick release rack and measure the distance between these two points for me?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/l8lhts1qy7j2cyq/DSC_1031.jpg

I Should be able to compare it with the distances with my current rack then I was thinking that this simple difference in mounting position could account for why some people are saying the givi boxes interfere badly with the pillions legs/feet and others say its fine?

Steve

Default Racks

Thanks for the great write up especially for those of us that can't imagine what it will look like finished. This has helped me make some choices on which direction I want to go with the luggage. Now to find the bike.

It seems like they do indeed fit further back from the standard rack. I measure 4.2 inches on mine along A and 10.5 inhes along B. I have ordered the PLR racks anyway to have a look. I will post up my findings as this can make a big difference to pillions on the 650.
