Givi E250 Monokey Universal Adapter Plate
I went with revzilla to buy this plate to use my zilla bucks but wow they amazed me I had this part in a DAY! Givi stuff is pretty expensive but well designed, I ordered an extra case mounting plate to allow me to use my case on two bikes, works great

Does what it's designed to do--supports a Givi hard top case in a variety of mounting configurations.
Universal mounting plate does what it's intended to do. Very easy to attach to the rear rack of my BMW R1200ST and supports my Givi V46 top case and allows it to be securely locked down. No, it's not dirt cheap, but it's well made and solid. Molds are expensive to build and with the relatively small number of these mounts I imagine Givi sells, the price is reasonable to me.

Easy to install and loving the quick connect!
I got this an had it installed in a matter of minutes. Super solid design and the quick connect with my V46 is great.

Givi Monokey Adapter
Overall, and I reckon I mirror everyone's sentiment, this feels like too much money for what it is --
That being said, it's cheaper than me doing CAD work and then fabbing it, so - fine, here's my money
By its nature, getting an optimal install really depends on the hardware the adapter is being bolted to, so mileage will absolutely vary.
I wound up using entirely different fasteners than the ones the kit shipped with, so you may not have a perfect out-of-box experience.
The adapter does one thing well, and that is locking onto your Monokey case.

Givi E250 Universal Fit for BMWF800ST?
Purchased the Givi E250 Universal Adapter Plate hoping it would work for my '09 BMW F800ST. Doesn't look like it's going to work out without modifications. Too much trouble, so I think I will just stay with my Givi side cases. I wish a true BMW adapter plate was available, but I suppose there are patents to contend with.
As always, Revzilla is a top shelf retail operation. Shipping is FAST! Returns are EASY if it does not work out.

GOT TO HAVE ONE TO MOUNT THE TOP CASE
AS I AM NOT THAT MECHANICALLY INCLINED, INSTALLATION TAKES ME A BIT LONGER THAN THE NORMAL WRENCH HEAD. BUT IT IS QUITE EASY AND VERY STRAIGHT FORWARD.

Expensive piece of plastic
For a universal mount it seems that they could have sold this for a little less. It was necessary to be able to use the top box. It would have been a great purchase if they kept the cost down.

expenisive for what it is
it seems odd to me that the cheaper monolock comes complete with a universal mounting plate, but if you buy the more expensive monokey, you have cough up a pretty penny to buy this mounting plate. besides that, it is great quality and works great
