Recently picked up a Givi Outback Trekker top box, but I'm unsure how to go about attaching it. I know I need a monokey adapter but don't want to get the wrong one.

Can somebody help?

ThaiStrom is correct. Idk why it was so difficult to figure out. Multiple searches for "OEM suzuki v Strom rack" came up with nothing, but as soon as I searched "stock Suzuki rack" I was able to find some corroborating evidence.

Now, how do I go about putting the Givi Trekker on here? Get that stupid big plastic plate?

According to Givi, you have a couple options. (Ignore the SR3101M, which I think only works with Monolock cases, not Monokey.)


  • The SR3101 mounting kit includes both a metal base plate -- which attaches directly to the stock rack (not the stock top case plate which already appears to be on your bike...you would remove it first) -- and a plastic adapter plate.
  • The SRA3101 is a single-piece aluminum mounting plate -- no plastic adapter required.
At least, as best I can gather.

That is definitely the OEM plate for the top case but you are missing the OEM top case mounting kit. Your OEM side case mounts are kind of involved with the plate so not sure how easy it is to swap out the plate. The OEM top case is awful close to sw-motech trax but I cannot swear they are compatible. I fooled around trying to make the givi outback trekker monokey mount work with the OEM plate but parts started to add up and I could see myself chasing spacers and mounts and plates. I am not that handy so I gave up and found me the cheapest OEM case I could find. The OEM case comes without the locks and the mounting pieces so you need to source those as well. The sw-motech trax locks come in a set of 6 so you can match all boxes to one key and were very easy to install on the OEM cases. The suzuki locks were not so great. The OEM mounting kit has the four little spools and the tab thing to hold the case on and all hardware.

If anybody here has a succinct list of parts needed to use OEM side cases and OEM plate with Givi monokey mount they should make sticky and post pics.

Pic is OEM plate with OEM topcase mounting kit installed. FWIW it has stayed in place nicely for 11000 miles. Bike never leaves pavement other than gravel occasionally. I rarely use the side cases that came with the bike. Whatever you do keep us posted please. KFH000

Okay so I admit I probably could've done a lot more searching around through the forum on my own for this before creating a thread, but I'm on mobile like 95% of the time so...

I'm just putting what I found here so I can come back on it if I have to, and maybe save someone from wasting as much time as I just did.


I thought I could mod the original rack to accept a monokey. Then thought about the rear cut-out and realized I'd have to make a piece and said :|:|:|:| that.
So then I was just about ready to get the SRA3101 (I found it for $78 at Motostorm) but read in this threadthat said
the Givi SRA3101 will not work with the factory side cases on the glee. There is a cross brace that gets in the way.
and referenced another thread.

Adventure Tech makes a plate for the notch. Anddddddd I'm going to stop right :|:|:|:|ing here because I just realized the last post in that thread lays all this out pretty much.


Oh, and I had to remove the links I created because my post count is too low so this was especially a waste of time. :|:|:|:| me.

If you don't mind leaving the case on, drill four holes. Add a hand full of screws, nuts and washers...

When I bought my Wee it had a GIVI plate on the rack, I bought a cheapo trunk that had it's own mount plate and i just removed the givi plate and drilled the holes to fit the cheapo. when I got my Glee i just pulled the cheapo and drilled holes in it's rack for the cheapo trunk. in theory the givi plate should fit the same holes. This fits the monolock cases, but it's just a plastic plate with 2 metal brackets to secure
