Givi Top case hardware suggestions???

Looking to purchase a Givi E52N and need the hardware to mount it. Two choices I'm looking at are the Adventure Motostuff Adjustable Topcase mounting system V3.0 and the SW Motech Alu-Rack Toprack V3.0. Does anyone have any thoughts of one over the other?

Prices on both are close so that's not a consideration, just looking for the best product that will hold the E52 securely. Any or all suggestions will be appreciated.

thanks!

amotostuff works for me. No complaints at all.

I would recommend you NOT go for the brake light option on the E52 (quick-connection unreliable). Instead, upgrade with an admorelighting unit (http://www.admorelighting.com/) as soon as feasible.

If you get the AMoto adjustable, please post back here with your critique. I currently have the standard Givi mount, and a backrest on my Givi case, but it sits a little too forward for my passenger's comfort. I'm interested to hear if this adjustable mount will solve that by allowing the case to be mounted more rearward.

Agree fully on both points and run same config.
Get the Givi w/o the light kit installed (cheaper) and install the Admore kit - piece of cake, brighter, and better functionality.
