Givi Side Case Mount

I have Givi Monokey cases from a previous bike that I want to mount on my new 2012 Wee. Any suggestions on what racks will fit on the Wee or any experience with other brands of racks that work with the monokey cases?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/information you provide.

Givi Side Case Mounts

So I've found out that Givi offers two racks one being a permanent install and the other removeable. What has been the experience with those of you who have either of these mounts?

I have the fixed Givi PL3101 Pannier Holder rack

I did find the rack a pain in the ass to fit as the right rack holes did not align to the bike holes by about 4mm, so I had to use a bit of force to align them.

But now they are fitted, they are fine and have been working great for almost 5 months now with my Givi Trekker bags

PLR Version

Bolted right on working from back to bottom to top and allows removal of the racks in about 2 mins. Love it.

Citizen4/Odieus,
Are the Givi PL3101 side case racks symetrical or offset to accomodate the exhaust pipe similiar to the racks on the Adventure model?

They're offset to accommodate for the exhaust. But not by too much.

Ah ha, that is exactly what I needed to hear. Thanks for the photos. Looks like the difference is barely noticeable.
