Question GIVI TRK52 combined with TraX ION

Hey,

First off, hello to all my fellow stromtroopers

So I almost have my 650XT for a year now. I bought the Givi TRK52 top case with the metal plate.
This year I want to travel more, so I need capacity .
I like the sw motech aluminium cases, the adventures are a bit expensive, so that brings me to the ION series.

I'd like to add 2x 37L cases, but I noticed that my givi is wider than the trax top case (60 cm vs 41 cm)
This could mean they would collide or I can't open the side cases with the top case mounted.

I can't find good pictures wich illustrate how high and wide the ION's go.
Does anybody have experience with this combination, or can someone do some measurements/photo's of the ION side cases on a 2017 V-strom 650 XT

The alternative is the TRK33, but I don't lithe the side opening, waterproofing and small top opening.
The price difference with removable carrier is marginal here in Belgium.

Thx for your comments.

Jef

Have you considered the Givi Dolomiti? Inexpensive if you order from Motostorm.it.

Don't underestimated the benefits of top-opening cases. I no longer have this matching top case. I opted for a larger Givi plastic one instead.

I was very disappointed in the TRK33. Don't do it. The walls are very thick which leaves little room inside. Plus they're heavy and side opening.

Thanks for the link! I'd been eyeing this set for the spring riding season. Saved me $150 on the set+racks.

Hopefully you got and used a €20 coupon code. All you have to do is post a review to get one. Any review.

Get the bag liners and lid nets too.
