Monolock and Monokey mounting plates
I caused myself some grief over Monolock and Monokey mounting plates. Here is some clarification in the hope that other people may avoid the same kind of grief:
I bought an almost-new Kappa top case from a guy who was going to use it on his Ducati. It came with the Monolock plate already so, when I ordered my Givi rack, I ordered it with a Monokey plate. I thought that the Monolock plate I already had would fit the Givi rack and that I would have a spare Monokey plate in the event that I wanted to switch to Monokey in the future.
It didn't work out that way. The mounting plate, be it Monokey or Monolock, has to be compatible with the F or FZ rack to be used on the Versys. Obviously the Duc uses a different style of rack and the bolt hole pattern doesn't line up.
Here are the part numbers for the Givi mounting plates compatible with the FZ rack for the Versys:
076-M5 - Monokey
076-M5M - Monolock
