Riding a 2009 Versys 650 which I just bought 3 days ago. Love the bike, especially the convenience of a topcase, which I've never had before. It's a Givi V46. Does anyone have any advice on how to add Givi sidecases/saddlebags? My limited research is suggesting Givi V35 sidecases with fit my '09. Is there a new rack that is needed to mount the Givi topcase and sidecases together?

I don't have the top box (I'm not a fan of them) but I do have the V35 side cases and think very highly of them - well made, spacious, strong, and good looking. If you decide to add the cases, you might consider swapping the reflectors for Admore Lighting's LED kit. It makes a dramatic difference; the bike is much more conspicuous from the rear - and that's a very good thing.

So the Givi V35 pannier mounting rack will fit along with the Givi topbox rack?
