KAPPA products

Purchased this tank lock bag from Motostorm in Italy. The Kappa products are made in the Givi factory. Apparently Kappa is owned by GIVI'S daughter. KAPPA are slightly cheaper than Givi and some products fit to Givi frames, tank Flang etc. This is a 15 Litre tank lock bag. Fitted today.

Have had several Kappa products, in fact we LOOK for them over givi, considerably cheaper, but no loss of quality, hard to find though, have to scour ebay on the Italian sellers to find the better stuff, and jag one that post not a killer.

You wont regret buying Kappa

I have 3 x trekkers, givi wanted something like $75 for a key kit, local locksmiths keyed all the same in about half an hour for $20!

All they do (locksmiths) is pick one key then adjust the tumblers inside other locks to suit.

So go see your locksmith

I got a set of Givi bags/topbox second hand, then found that they fit on Kappa racks, so bought the quick detach racks via an Italian dealer on eBay. Identical to the Givi racks, but cheaper. Very happy with them. 3 different keys on the bags was a PITA, but I DIY'd a tumbler rearrangment. Was not straightforward as one bag had a slightly diffferent lock construction, but some work with a file fixed it, now all work off one key.

There are holes in the sky where the rain gets in,
and the holes are very small, that's why rain is thin.
