Givi E251 Universal Monokey Top Case Adapter Plate
Overall this is an easy install job. The definition of universal however didn't quite match per plan with the SW-motech top plate on my Suzuki V-Strom 650 (2013) I was able to creatively get 3 bolts on it, however they are not as well distributed as I would like. Overall, my case fits great on it and seems solid.

Great for bikes that don't have a custom bracket.
I purchased this to add a trunk to my BMW S1000R. I couple it with a bike-specific Hepco-Becker plate, and together they make for a *rock-solid* mount. It's even sturdier than the Givi bracket on my Street Triple R. It did require a bit of "file-to-fit" adjustment, so install wasn't as easy as the other brackets. But the quality of the end result is great.

Mount a Givi Monokey top case just about anywhere
I have a huge 55L top case on the luggage rack of my Burgman 650. On the highway, the weight and the susceptibility to crosswinds are noticeable. So I strap this adapter plate to my back seat when I'm going to be on the highway for any length of time. It only takes a minute, and it moves the top case forward a couple of feet. The improvements in weight distribution and aerodynamics are very pleasant.

Great product as a universal mount
I used this with my Factory FZ-09 Yamaha Rack with a top case as the Givi rack is hideously ugly.

Givi Universal Monokey Mounting Plate is, well, Universal...
This is an updated version of Givi's Monokey Universal Mounting plate with a slightly slicker and more aesthetic look. It is easy to mount on a variety of luggage racks with the included bolts and brackets. I have had several of these on different motorcycles and have found them to be a simple and durable solution for mounting Givi (and compatible) cases.

Works for me!
Because of my bike model, I have to use the universal plates. These are easy to install.
This particular one doesn't have a hole drilled through if you're running electricity to your case. There is a circle shape showing you where to do it. Get your drill bits out!

Works on a F800GT
Easy Install. I you have a BMW F800GT you must purchase bolts 10mm longer than those supplied but installation is easy and works well.

Fastened this on top of an existing aluminum plate I had on my bike. My Givi 33l topcase locks in snugly and survived several days of off rough road riding without a hitch. Time will tell re durability but looks good so far.
