I want to purchase the V46 Givi. I already have the Burgman 650 OEM carrier installed. I understand that there is a specific plate for the suzuki carrier that will allow the trunk to install to it. However, I've been advised by email from Givi USA that one should use the givi carrier instead as it will support the trunk better.
Has anyone mounted one of the larger Givi trunks to the Suzuki carrier? if so...are there any concerns using the Suzuki carrier and adapter instead of the givi carrier?
Thanks
Rod

i used the givi rack as its designed for the monokey cases. im not sure how sturdy it would be on the suzuki rack i just like to keep things as designed when strength is concerned. i have the e52 maxia top box on my 650

I just installed the E52NF. It had the brake light kit built in and automatically connected to the power when put on the rack.

Personal opinion is to go with the GIVI monokey rack. It is simple to put on.

I put the Givi 46 on mine along we the 529 rack for the 650 Burgman. Installation wasn't a cinch but it wasn't to bad. The topbox is designed to fit into the carrier and lock and I would guess it wouldn't work this way on the Suzuki carrier. I shortened the spacers on mine so the Box wouldn't set so high in the air. I had to apply a couple of shims to make sure the seat would clear when it was opened but it works well and looks good. I got the standard flat black box .

My local dealer contacted the Canadian distributor and advised me the V46 wasn't available yet. My wife didn't like the little holes at the back of that one anyways. So I went with the larger Givi Silver Monokey E52 and E529 carrier/bracket kit as well.....I figured I might as well use all Givi parts and remove the Suzuki carrier. Ordered the liner and carry bag too. Parts arrived today. Case is beautiful I'll install it next week on both Burgmans.
Thanks for your advise.

Givi Topcase

Rod:
If you don't mind me asking, how much was the whole setup in Canadian dollars. It looks like something I could use.

The Canadian price list for the Givi E52 Monokey trunk and accessories is posted here:

The price list for the E529 (plate kit) is here:
http://www.importationsthibault.com/new ... itch_type=
There are 2 plates with the E529 , a thick plastic piece and a heavy solid metal plate that attaches to it. The Givi distributor was correct about it being better suited for the Burgman than the Suzuki carrier I already have installed. However, the Suzuki carrier looks better that the givi plate and obviously has other functions. The Givi plate/carrier is only good with the trunk. I never saw an E52 Givi trunk at any dealer, only the smaller trunks. The E52 is beautiful, very sleek for a large trunk. Great silver finish. The finish looks like its a perfect match for the silver Burgman.

Because I ordered 2 sets I got 10% off. No shipping fee. I ordered through a local dealer that screwed up one of the part numbers of the plate when ordering, so I had to contact importationsthibault.com by email to correct the order. I spoke to Eric. He was very helpful. 1 day shipping from Quebec to Hamilton.

I originally ordered the Suzuki tall windscreen when I bought the bike last year. Its much better than the stock one....however probably not as functional as the other ones posted in this forum. Having said that it is sleeker looking.

I shopped around for prices. I found that the Toronto prices were steeper than in Hamilton. I see you're from London. I dropped by http://www.ingliscycle.com/ last year. Their prices seemed very competitive for accessories.

Hi Rod:
Thanks for the info. Inglis cycle is where I bought my Burgman. They are pretty good people and have a good selection but, I think they tend to be pricey. THey charged me $110.00 for the service manual :x . I do, however get 15% off on anything because I bought my bike there. I will check their prices on the Givi as compared to the place in Quebec. That's the great thing about this forum: timely dissemination of unbiased information. Keep it up everyone.
Harold.

I bought my 2 Burgmans at Clare's Cycle
http://www.clarescycle.com/
because they were the only dealership to consider a trade on my
2 x 1985 Honda 250 Elites. Randy Clare gave me full value for the trade because my bikes were in mint condition. Clare's is a 2nd generation family run business located in the Niagara Region ... the store is quite large, Harley products on one side, Japanese bikes on the other. They are very friendly and I think their prices are reasonable (except for Harley stuff). They offer 15% discount on any accessory purchase after you buy a bike, and offer discounts to bike clubs. I believe I paid around 60 bucks for my service manual last year. Maybe you should have a ride to check out Clare's. You'll enjoy the ride because its absolutely beautiful motorcycle country in that area.
You also might want to check out
http://www.mcbridecycle.com/ in Toronto. Their accessory prices are a little steeper but they also have a big selection of motorcycles and clothing.
You can get the Burgmans and Givi from both locations. So I would try to get a discount from one of the local dealerships before throwing in the towel and ordering direct from importationsthibault.com. Having said that, if you check out the US prices at http://www.giviusa.com/, you'll see its cheaper to buy the parts in Canada at Thibault
