Givi Trekker Outback Side and Top Cases? Doable?

Does anyone have all 3 cases mounted? does it work? I was about to by the SW-motech cases, but the guy @ twisted throttle said that you can't mount side and top cases on a versys. So I've moved onto the Givi Trekker Outback cases, but I can't seem to find anyone who has installed all 3 cases on the verses, but it looks like Givi does have the proper side & top rack to make it work.

Any thoughts from anyone? I mainly want the top case, just to store helmet in, and then the side cases for when I need to actually carry goods.

Edit:
I guess I should say specifically I'm looking to mount the PL4103CAM Side Racks, 451FZ top rack, the 37L side cases, and the smaller size top case (42L I think).

Guess I'll answer my own questions for others.

I did get all 3 boxes mounted, and even ended up getting the 58L top box.

Does anyone know if you can add a Roto pax on the inside of the side cases?

I am going to ask what mountings you used and approximate cost--looking at 2015 ABS Versys---I also noticed you have lights mounted, are the cases removable?

I installed the Outback Trekker on my 2015 650 ABS last night. I was torn between keeping the sporty look of the plastic cases and the rugged look of the aluminum cases. After seeing the prices at Motostorm I decided to go with the rugged look. I saved about $800 by ordering from Motostorm.

I like the new cam mounting system that is used for the saddlebags. The only difficulty with the installation was assembling the included turn signal relocation bracket. It took me longer to disassemble the rear of the bike, pull the wires, and reassemble everything than it did to install all of the case mounting brackets.

Hopefully my pictures are included below.

Wow, those look really wide across the back. Have you ever measured them?

I can measure them tonight. These are the 37 liter cases, not the larger 48 liter. Also, the topcase is the 42 liter case.

I measured the width of the bars and to the outside of the sidecases. The bars with standard bar end weights are about 33 inches. The side cases are about 39 inches.
