Givi E251 Universal Monokey Top Case Adapter Plate
This adapter is well design with a flexibility in mounting that should allow easy attachment.

Mounting Plate for Monokey Top Box
Needed the Givi mounting plate to add a Monokey Top Box to my R1200RT. The sales guy helped clue me in on what I needed to fit my bike. Was going to order the universal plate. This was super easy to install and the directions were straight forward. Some complained that the directions were poor...pictures are easy, figure it out!! Super sturdy. Great product.

Straight-forward installation; adjustable trunk positioning.
This product arrived in excellent condition and a timely manner. The adapter plate was installed on a 2015 BMW R1200RT and easily lashed up with the existing BMW luggage rack. The adapter plate is well made and the 'finish-plate' that tops the adapter plate yields a smooth surfaced final product. The fact that the plate can be moved fore and aft provides an opportunity to adjust the final position of the trunk to meet your own needs. Since the adapter plate has been in use for only a couple of weeks, it is too soon to comment on durability.

Easy to adapt
Got a Monolock top rack for my Zero SR and already had a Monokey top case so needed to get an adapter. The reason I took away a star is because Givi customer service was frustrating to deal with. Fortunately, their engineering dept is staffed with better people than their customer service dept.
The kit was easy to install and the pieces fit together without explanation.

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.
