Givi OBK58A top box
« on: November 11, 2019, 06:10:27 PM »
Hi, I am looking into the idea of a larger top box for touring.
So, could anyone tell me if a Givi Trekker Outback, 58ltr,  top box will fit on Triumph's 'Givi' sliding carriage that I have for my Expedition top box?

Thanking you...

No , they are not compatible. You need to remove the sliding carriage and replace with the givi plate. There is a black 58 litre givi trekker box for sale on the uk gs forum. Not me but I'll get contact detail for you if you wish.

Givi Trekker Outback 58l aluminium topbox in black.  Final bump and price drop to 230..

:084: From memory I'm sure I looked at one before and it isn't anything more technical than removing the 2 screws holding the lug onto the plate, working out the new position, further in than the Expedition box, drilling 2 holes and refitting the lug. The locating hole on the Givi topbox is simply further in from the edge of the box so needs the lug moved to match.

Ah.. interesting... I will look into that idea, I would much rather this than have to change the whole plate.
Are the front fixings standard then?
Many thanks

Fitted one to mine, just move the fitting pegs around 10-15 mm towards the back of the rack. Two simple holes job done  :152:

Great stuff.  I guess we beat this one to death with the details.  Appears if you're willing to make the mods to the GIVI Sliding Mount,  one could save about 1/2 the cost of the OEM,  but you would have to disassemble the unit,  affecting the adjustments.  The instructions show how to make the adjustments. Be sure and fit your box to it before you reassemble so you don't have to take the whole damn thing apart again.

BTW:  I read the GIVI Sliding Plate fits all their current Monokey box units.  Make sure what you are buying that it will fit the plate you have.  Probably nothing wrong with modifying the Triumph Sliding Plate because its all made by GIVI anyway.  Triumph just doesn't want interchangeability for $$$ reasons.
