Question How do I put on this top box?

:???: I took off the Suzuki top box to install a happy-trail.com panniers and top rack. I had to take off the rack from Suzuki. Is there an adapter I can put on the happy-trail.com top rack so that I can use the Suzuki top box?



Before



the top rack used with the suzuki box



the happy-trail.com rack

Looks similar to the Givi locking mechanism (Zuk is made by Kappa which is a subsidiary of Givi). You MAY be able to get a Givi adapter plate (you will have to screw into the rack to mount) and mount your box to that. Do a search for happy trails and Givi. May also want to try to find a Kappa mount. Cant guarantee that it will work, but it looks just like the Give mount.

R.I.P.

If you don't need the original in pristine condition some hacksawing and some bolts will probably get it mounted on the Happy Trails rack.
