  2. Anyone using a RAM Tough Claw cup holder or similar on the 1050 yet?

    DL1050 from 2020 - ?
    Something like this one: The handlebar measures around 21 mm or .826 in diameter btw. The stock mount above the LCD is around 24 mm or .944 in in diameter. Measured with a body caliper so not exact. I ordered the...
  3. FOR SALE: Givi E370 Monolock Top Case

    General V-Strom Discussion
    I've got a Givi Monolock E370 top case I'd like to sell, as I've since upgraded to a different style case. It is fully functional and ready to go - all mounting hardware included. Remember this is the monolock and not the monokey - givi makes two different types. 37L capacity. Normal signs of...
  4. Givi Luggage Questions

    DL650A - 2017+
    I'm about to pull the trigger on getting some Givi Top and Side Cases (with a few accessories) from Motostorm. Their prices seem a lot better than U.S. retailers with no VAT, $31.95 shipping for everything, and 20 euros off each 200 euros spent. After doing a bit of research, here's what I came...
  5. Givi Crash Bars with SW-Motech Skid Plate?

    V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    2018 V-Strom 1000XT Curious if anyone's done this before. I don't like how low the SW-Motech Crash Bars are... and the Givi Crash Bars seem to be at least at a 'decent' height. BUT the Givi Skid Plate is HORRIBLE imo because of how much variance there can be on the skid plate. As in, I've seen...
  6. DL650XT '17 & Givi PL3112

    DL650A - 2017+
    Hi all, I got my Wee3 about a year ago and after looking around for luggage options that could be both useful & durable but also as cheap as possible. (That may sound bad, but having to pay ~9400EUR in Greece for a 2017 650XT forces you to cut as much as you can on accessories). I chose the...
  7. Givi Outback Case Install 2018 DL1000

    V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Greetings, Well I've had my new Vee for less than a week and I have already started accessorizing. First mod of many more to come: Givi 37 liter Outback cases with the saddle bag holders. Obviously installing the case on the rack is the easy part: line up the slots and rock into place. I...
  8. Custom rear carrier with backrest

    V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Just joined the forum and decided to post the project I just finished up. The position of the givi mounting plate is waaay too close to the passenger and I don't particularly find their backrest pad very comfortable. So I decided to design a system that is completely adjustable in that the...
  9. Help on making Panniers fit

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I have a DL1000A 2012 V-Strom Adventure. I have decided to replace my OEM Panniers with some aftermarket ones. After having exhausted the internet and reading reviews I decided on the GIVI Outback Trekker series of side cases. Now that I found what I want, I come to find out they won't fit on my...
  10. Rear fender huggers?

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Anyone using one? After a ride in the rain the other day I see more sand and dirt flung around the rear swingarm than I'd like to see. My research came up with both Givi and Puig making for our 2014 and up DL1000 V-Stroms. Anyone using one, and if so, how do you like it? Are there any other...
  11. Why are side cases so expensive!!!???

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I really want to upgrade my side cases to something a little more aggressive than my Givi E22's but everything is crazy expensive. I was just wondering why they're so expensive? Is it a supply and demand type of thing or are they really that much more bulletproof? I mean $600 plus seems kind...
  12. Kappa K-Venture 37L sidecases

    General V-Strom Discussion
    I bought a DL1000 this year already mounted with 3 Givi cases. Although the E41 Keyless are good cases, I was looking for sturdier ones with a top opening. That’s were my quest began… I search the net for all the top-opening aluminum cases that can fit my bike. First I found a blog that listed...
  13. Givi Luggage Bracket Flaw-2014

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    The right mounting bracket is anything but right. :frown2:
  14. Givi V56N test fitting

    General V-Strom Discussion
    I currently have an E460 on my Wee and dislike the fact that I can't fit 2 XL helmets into the case. My co-worker just ordered the V56 from Motorama and was curious to see if it would slide onto my adapter plate. It did fit and lock properly and looked pretty darn good to boot...
  15. How do I mount my Givi Monokey trunk?

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    here's the thing. I had a '12 DL650 Adventure, and I had my trunk on it. I sold that bike about 6 months ago. Then I got to wishing I had kept it, so I went out and bought a '13 DL650 Adventure. I want to mount my Givi trunk on this one too. I have had this trunk on many bikes, and as a result...
  16. Givi Maxia 55L Top Case

    General V-Strom Discussion
    I bought a used 2012 Vstrom 650 and this case came with the bike. I'm thinking about the Admore Light Kit for this case, but before I invest $140 into it, I have a few concerns: 1. The case is a little beat up, and it has 1 folding metal hinge in the right corner. I suspect there was a...
  17. Change Trax boxes to Givi E-21's?

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    I am not fond of the Trax boxes that came on my 2012 Adventure. Sure they hold a ton, but they are so wide, and the locks can be a pita. I was looking at the racks they are mounted on, and it looks to me like this could easily be adapted to hold Givi bags using this kit: SW-MOTECH sidecase...
  18. Givi trekker outback pannier

    General V-Strom Discussion
    Just installed new set of Givi Trekker Outback panniers on my 2013 DL650. They installed super easy and look really good IMHO.
  19. Which Givi top case mount plate for Glee

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    I know a lot of you use Givi monokey cases on your Glees. My question for you is which mount plate did you use a why?:confused: There are three options I have found. They are: 1. GIVI SRA3101 MONOKEY TOPCASE FITMENT KIT RACK - $143.00 This is a bike specific rack that is aluminum, also the...

    Hey all! I am a seasoned rider in New England and I am going to pick up my new Vstrom1000 in a few months. I am intent on getting luggage. Right now I am stuck between the Givi Trekkers and the SW-MOTECH Trax boxes. Does anyone have any opinions? Mark Z.
