Fitting Givi Top Box Adapter
« on: July 10, 2018, 02:23:24 PM »
My Givi top box adapter for my Monokey E52 arrived yesterday.  I have ordered a 17mm drill bit for the big holes but thought I would fit the mounts and drill some pilot holes to confirm locations before drilling the full size holes.



Not sure how much weight this will take!



Holes drilled and locations are pretty good.  About 1mm out which I can adjust for when stepping up through drill bit sizes to the full size.

Thanks. :)

Yeah, I ordered a reduced shank bit from UK Drills on eBay.  It was about three quid including the delivery. Should be here before Friday.

I was under the impression that there are markings for the holes you need to drill underneath the plastic tailpiece??

Pizzarepairman your are correct there are 4 marks on the back of the triumph plastic plate you drill them and it fits perfect I have done this myself and can confirm it is correct.

Oh, cool, thanks for the information guys!  My marks were pretty close to those but I wasnt certain which is why I made the template.  When I re-drill I will use those marks. :)

I used a universal Givi plate and fitted it to the the existing grab handle points using longer bolts and spacers. A good solid fit.

I have recently installed the Givi plate to my 2018 XCA and used the marks on the underside of the plastic cover.  However, I found that one of the holes was slightly off centre with the plate, not my drilling error I hasten to add!  So be mindful they may not line up 100%, best to use a template.

Thanks

The template is the Cardboard Aided Design in the first photo and I am in no rush so want to get this right.  Going to step up through a few drill bit sizes before the final (I am using a drill press so that's easy!) size so can adjust as necessary while drilling. :)

All done!  I found the marks were a couple of mm out but a bit of fettling with a round file and its all good. Happy with that and doesnt look too bad.  Will probably look awful with the SW Motech panniers I am getting at the weekend but itll do for the moment!
