Hey guys,
This might be a very stupid question but I want to be sure. I am considering to buy Givi E340 top case for my newly purchased Wee. Do I need a rack for it? Thanks.

Here is a quick tutorial and some links to the Givi cases:

Givi cases come in two styles: Monolock and Monokey.

Monolock: http://www.giviusa.com/cases/Monolock-/
These seem to be the lower priced and (generally) smaller sized cases. I'm not sure if the price is reflective of the build quality.
The Monolock cases are individually keyed and the keys cannot be swapped out to be keyed alike.
The Monolock cases require a Monolock rack to mount.
The Monolock rack is for topcases only, so that Monolock cases can be used as topcases only.

Monokey: http://www.giviusa.com/cases/monokey/
Monokey cases can be keyed alike and Givi sells lock sets for up to three Monokey cases.
Monokey racks are made to accomodate sidecases as well as topcases.

The Givi B36N case will fit EITHER a Monokey rack or a Monolock rack and may be used as either a topcase or sidecase. http://www.giviusa.com/cases/Monolock-/B36N-BUSINESS-CASE

Here is a link to the Givi 340:

I have the Givi E370 monolock topcase and I was able to use the existing mounting plate that came with the unit, no extra mounting plate required. I did have to use a different set of shorter bolts that what was supplied, and swap out the nuts, but other than that it fit fine. Riding with it for about a month now with no issues.

Thank you guys for all your replies. It is funny that Steve mentioned his E370 because that is what I've decided to buy. I am ordering it online today.

fyi, I choose to mount this a little bit more to the rear for the passenger room. Plus I never carry anything heavy so not too worried. You may wish to mount it further up on the backrest. I believe the adaptor plate also gives you more room to mount this rearward.

same case on my wee, I just re drilled a few new holes and placed it closer to the seat, just enough to get the seat off without any hassle, good little case, I would recommend the next size up, just to get a bit more in it.
