Title: Re: Suzukis own Top Box Rack v Givis?
Post by: northernbandit on February 27, 2009, 10:05:42 AM
yes Gaz you are right in that their are slight differences in the position of the top box.
the Suzuki rack base plate sits lower and slightly forward compared with the Givi rack.
hopefully you can see the difference in the 2 pictures.
also the Suzuki rack and pannier rails cannot be interchanged with the Givi ones,IE Suzuki rack and Givi pannier rails or vice verse.
Both the Suzuki system and the Givi system will work fine(i have a 1250 SA with the Givi system and no problems at all re position
hope this helps.
Thanks for the answers. The prices I can find indicate the Givi, Kappa & Suzuki are indeed so similar that, I think I will wait for the Suzuki branded box (990D0-K4902-RB5) to become available here in order to get matching paint. I notice that the Kappa forward mount posts are now "elongated mushrooms" as opposed to a simple mushroom post. I assume this is due to some mounting security issues in the past. The Suzuki plate I just installed has the simple mushroom posts. Now, I also wait for saddle bag racks to be developed.

Hi, fellow Burgman fans.
Yesterday I seemed to have snapped my drive belt (I think) on my 2003 Burgman 650 with 50,000 miles, so now I'm in decision mode.
What I'm hoping is that someone can share with me is what other parts should be swapped out at the same time?
I'm just not sure, but I...
Well now... seems my like new '07 Burgman 650 has developed a light pecking sound. Rather it's more like a steady tapping or ticking sound while idling. Sounds like an V-8 motor lifter tapping only not as pronounced. My trusty '05 made plenty of strange noises but never a steady ticking sound...
Ahhhhh what an evening I had with El Burgo yesterday. Nothing extra special. It just served me well and things could not have gone much better. Twas about 4 pm and I was working from home, and decided I would check the weather. The weather looked like the scattered showers were running out...
