I've only had one bike before with a top case. That bike had a very solid metal rack, with a very solid metal adapter plate, and a Hepco Becker top case. No wobbles.
On my 2018 V-Strom 1000 I decided to add a top case, and maybe I went a bit too cheap, not sure.
I went with a Givi B37 Monolock top case. This came with a plastic adapter plate. I mounted the adapter plate to the stock plastic v-strom rack and that seems really solid. Installed the top case, seems like a wee bit of play, but not bad.
Then when riding on normal bumpy CA roads, the top case is wobbling and shaking around. I take a look back and it looks like way too much wobble.
I stopped, pulled off the top case, the adapter plate is still very solidly mounted, bolts still very tight, so it seems as good as it is going to get.
Is this kind of normal? And OK to just ride and wobble away?
I see the Givi rack/adapter plate SRA3112 that has some support rail/frame and looks much more solid. Thinking I should go for that and a monokey top case ... then I guess try to sell the B37 monolock case on craigslist.
Would that be a wobble free solution?
