Givi side case mounting question

I just but my second Vee (should have kept the last one) and it came with a 52 liter Givi trunk along with what I believe are the PL528 side racks with the two mounting clamps at the bottom and the little lip sticking out at the top. The previous owner kept the Givi 21 bags so I need to get some. Now the question. Am I stuck with Givi bags for this rack or do some others fit with some magic mounting rigging. I used to have Pelicans on my old bike. If others fit-is there a link on how to make them adaptive to this particular Givi side rack?

Thanks a bunch

The Givi connectors should be removable. I have the quick release racks on my Wee and I just simply removed the Givi bits with an allen wrench and mounted a set of ammo cans on the racks.

You can put pelicans back on there... But you'll need to make monting brackets.

The GIVI adapter bits are removable. You can then use something like this to mount other items (aluminum panniers, or Pelican-like cases).

'09 VStrom DL650A - Sold.
'04 Suzuki Burgman 400 - The wifes
'08 FJR1300AE - Miss Chievous.

Here's a thread with lots of info on mounting pelicans on givi racks: https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650-sp...-pelicans.html

2010 Triumph Tiger 1050se
2009 DL650A - sold

2005 DL650 - dearly departed
"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

Decisions, decisions??? All of these dealers are CRAZY! $185.00 for some DIY metal mounting brackets? A buck eighty-five should get you the cases with brackets and some bonus included item.

I agree. Just checked the twisted throttle site and am wondering if that mounting kit is the one someone in this link mentioned coming in 2009. If so that $25.00 might be the ticket if what I am seeing is compatible.
