I have the 03 AN650. I bought the Givi mounting plate for
my Givi Top box (traffic version). I got one page of instructions.
Most of it is dedicated to other languages. It would appear there
is a sub plate put under the plastic tail cone. And... I would
guess the mounting plate fits on top of the tail cone and I would
drill holes through the tail cone to get to the sub plate.

There must be another page of instructions somewhere. (?)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Or better yet an copy
of the "full" instructions mailed to me would be great. Thanks
all. Craig On the beach, Santa Cruz CA

I don't have the instructions anymore, but you've got the idea.

When you remove the top rear panel, you'll see 3 marks on the inderside for the holes.

I drilled them a bit undersized, mounted the tailpiece, and then opened them up slowly with a fremel to make sure they were lined up.

The holes need to be large enough for the posts to fit through.

After that it is easy street.

Thanks

Thank you Warren. I'm glad to hear there are marks underneath.
The worry was getting the under plate and the over rack to line up
with the cover in between.

I just did the install. Hardest part was removing the bodywork. You have to remove the bottom piece (two push pins on the bottom of the seam) first, to access 2 or the 4 push pins for the top piece. The plastic is indeed marked correctly, so you just drill your holes then assemble according to the diagram in the instructions.

I too only had one sheet, so I don't think you're missing anything. Other than the assembly diagram, not much useable with those directions!

Now if you want a real challenge, get the color-matched topcase and add the brake lights and wire it up.

Man-o-man what a pain in the butt!

Wiring

For me, Wiring is a snap. I'm concerned about drilling holes. craig

I'll second that with the wiring of the top case!
BTW: it isn't the wiring that is difficult it is keeping all of the small pieces from poping out and/or disconnecting the harness from the light modules.

question for you guys

I'm planning to order the Givi trunk (still can't decide whether I want the 52 or the 46) and I have a question about the lights and the removability - do you have unplug "something" like a wiring connector when you remove the case? It seems that would have to be but I haven't seen anything that tells me how/if that's what you do.

I want to ride without the top case for my daily commute and just put it on when I need it. I may find that it's more trouble than it's worth and just leace it on but, with no experience, it's hard to know.

The case and rack have the connector built in, so it automatically hooks up when you pull it on/off.

I have the 52, couldn't see wanting to go smaller, it looks great.

The instructions for mounting the brake lights and connectors leave a lot to be desired!

You can order a flat black case with the lights already installed, that would save a lot of effort. I bought the blue matched trunk so had to do all the cutouts and such myself. :?
