Will Kappa V33/V35 sidecases work on GIVI mounts?

No one (Givi, Kappa or distributers) can give me a straight answer on this. Can some in fact who knows, tell me if the Kappa bags will mount on GIVI side case mounts?

The Kappas look to be the same as the Givi bags mounts.

Garage
Yes.
Kappa cases are givi plx rack compatible.
(Just bought a used set of k33s with a givi plx rack)

Luck favors the prepared.

Note that is the PLX racks advertised for V35 bags only. Different than the PL racks that fit every other Givi Monokey bag.

PL racks are used to mount straight-sided bags like the Givi E21's You will need the PLX racks for the Kappa V33's as you can see, I've had both on my bike. Both PL and PLX require rear turn signal relocation. The PL turn signal relocation also require lengthening the left rear turn signal wiring as they are moved even higher and a little further to the rear.

Pic below is a PLX It curves inward giving the V35's (and V33's from Kappa) space for those 35 liters


Pic below is a PL straight sided ...for the E21's and other straight sided bags

Go it and thanks for the pics. To re-state, I will need PLX for Kappa V33/35 bags.

PLX: curved side mount bags.

PL: straight side mount bags.
