E370 Givi monolock topcase

Just installed, boy that givi bracket hardware is good quality and the install was a breeze. Real solid.
Nice size, can accomodate my xl helmet and joe rocket tankbag! Real handy.
I don't like the look of the wider, larger top cases, this one fits my needs and looks good on the bike, IMHO.
The more I hang around this site, the more i spend....

Cheers

I think it says 30 lbs in the literature someplace, I'll check.

The topcase is the best thing I've done so far (but I've not done much). Of course, you're completely wrong: you should have done the E52. It's perfect.

But whatever.

Ya the rack is rated for 10kg and the case has a max load of 3kg, so I was way off.
Moot point now, as I have already overloaded it , according to the 3kg spec.
I had 30 lbs of steel rollers in it for a cross town sprint , no problems. Like I said this thing is solid, but whatever

I have the E460 topcase, its practicality overshadows the ugliness. It's NOT a good look way up there. At least once you're moving, you don't have to look at it anymore.

And it does affect handling, but not that much unless you're at the extreme edge of hard riding. I've overloaded it many times as well, but the reason for the low weight limit is just to keep lawyers and lawsuits away.

In any event, I couldn't ride without it.

Ya the weight limits seem VERY VERY conservative. There is probably a large factor of safety involved.
