Hey,

First off, hello to all my fellow stromtroopers :wink2:

So I almost have my 650XT for a year now. I bought the Givi TRK52 top case with the metal plate.
This year I want to travel more, so I need capacity .
I like the sw motech aluminium cases, the adventures are a bit expensive, so that brings me to the ION series.

I'd like to add 2x 37L cases, but I noticed that my givi is wider than the trax top case (60 cm vs 41 cm)
This could mean they would collide or I can't open the side cases with the top case mounted.

I can't find good pictures wich illustrate how high and wide the ION's go.
Does anybody have experience with this combination, or can someone do some measurements/photo's of the ION side cases on a 2017 V-strom 650 XT

The alternative is the TRK33, but I don't lithe the side opening, waterproofing and small top opening.
The price difference with removable carrier is marginal here in Belgium.

Thx for your comments.

Jef

Have you considered the Givi Dolomiti? Inexpensive if you order from Motostorm.it.

Don't underestimated the benefits of top-opening cases. I no longer have this matching top case. I opted for a larger Givi plastic one instead.

I was very disappointed in the TRK33. Don't do it. The walls are very thick which leaves little room inside. Plus they're heavy and side opening.
