Question for Givi Monolock Users...
I'm considering the E450 for my Wee, it appears to be a nice compromise between the V46 and the Bestem/JCW cases.
From what I have read, the Monolock line has a less-substantial mounting set up than the Monokey line. I know the specific model differences, but don't know the difference in the thickness of the case plastic and locking mechanisims.
For those that own the Monolocks, have you ever loaded these things up beyond their 6.6 LB rating and found the case to be unstable and/or less than up to the task? Where did Givi exactly cut the costs on the Monolocks? Thinner plastic walls? Locking mechanism?
I have a SHAD 46 on backorder, which is my original "split" between expensive and cheap. I'm not a fan of the proprietary Monokey mounting rack; however, I don't know if going Monolock is getting a "less rugged" product.
Any experienced input is greatly appreciated.
