Top Case

Hi All,
This might be mentioned somewhere else and i have just not found it yet.
Is there another top case that fits on the OEM top case plate. The Suzuki branded top case is just a little pricey. I have the Adventuring side cases because they gave me them as a manufacture incentive.

Thanks!

I am not sure.

I have a Givi top box on my another bike and I measured the nut spacing to see if it would bolt up to the OEM Adventure model rack. Two of the bolts are pretty much a dead on bolt up, but the plastic "TAB" that goes on the far end of the rack would be kind of hard to install. I would have to fashion some kind of bracket to mount it.

Worst case scenario, I might just take the rack to a welder and he can weld up a little bit more of space at the end of the rack so I could mount the Givi "TAB" there.

Thanks for the info. I might bite the bullet and purchase the manufacture top case just so they all match...

I've been wondering the same thing. Probably going to get the OEM top case too.

I too have been thinking about getting a Suzuki factory top case or the S-W Motech top case for my 2012 650 adventure but I see where Twisted Throttle has a Coocase S50 top case on sale which is bigger than the factory top case. I have a Coocase V37 top case and it doesn't look too bad with the factory boxes on.
