    Top Box advice

    Please forgive me if this has been covered already ad nauseam but Iím looking to get a top box for my recently purchased 2016 800 xrt. Iíve decided on the givi 46L trekker. My question is on the mounting procedure. Is the universal givi mounting plate all I need or is there another plate I need as well? Iíd really like to order everything I need at once so I can start installing as soon as the mailman comes. Thanks in advance for any help and/or advice

    Just looking at the Givi web site indicates you need Monokey mounting plate SRA6401. The fitting instructions are given below. Compared with my OEM sliding top box carriage, the difference appears to be that the Givi kit contains two internal brackets that bolt on to the bike under the rear plastic cover. On the OEM plate, it uses a single bracket in front of the plastic cover and then relies on the 4 x tapped holes in the grab handle under the plastic rear cover.

    Thank you, reading through old threads on the subject  I was confused as I was getting the impression it wasnít as cut and dry as order box and bracket and slap it on the bike. I went ahead and ordered the box a d the bike specific mounting plate and figure Iíll have a go and make it work

    For the OEM Triumph plate, you have to remove the rear plastic cover from the bike but it still uses the original 4 x fixing screws. For the Givi mounting plate, it looks as though you have to drill 4 x new clearance holes in the plastic cover for the through-spacers that provide the offset for the mounting plate above it.

    If you go with the Givi plate (SRA6401) you will need to drill a 17mm hole though the plastic cover.  I had to get buy one specifically to do this job.

    What are your total costs? I'm weighing up whether go go your route or stick with roc straps and my various sized waterproof bags.

    In the UK your looking at 300 pounds for a Givi setup and maybe 400 for the OEM versions.

    I needed mine for commuting or else i wouldn't have bothered.

    I can't speak for the mounting as luckily mine came with that when I bought the bike. It didn't have a top box though and I decided on a Givi trekker 46L. I have to say I think it's the perfect top box for this bike. Not too big but still big enough and suits the look of the bike. I would definitely reccommend it. I picked mine up 2nd hand for 140 but it didn't have a mark on it.

    salernoslim,

    Do you already have a Triumph top box mounting plate on your bike?  If so, you can easily modify it to hold a Givi Monokey top box and save yourself the money on the Givi mounting plate.  See https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,28382.0.html 

    Good Luck and Ride Safe
