Well, I've given it the ol' college try, but I've discovered that I can't make the OEM racks work with the Kappa KZ447 top rack I have. Try as I might, it just won't go together on the left hand side, and even if it did, I can't tighten up all of the bolts on the KZ447 when they are both mounted.
I've given up...my blood pressure can't take it. I know others on the UK board have indicated they've gotten them to work, but mine just won't go together.
I'm going to order a set of Kappa KLX447/Givi PLX447 racks and be done with it. According to Kappa, they are compatible.
Word to the wise...if you have a Givi/Kappa top rack, don't get the OEM pannier rack. You may regret it.
