Givi rack for VStrom 1000 The price was similar to other sites I have seen, the shipping of the item was incredibly fast. I got it within 3 days and installed it immediately. The instructions on the RevZilla site helped and the whole thing was pretty simple. It would help even more if there was a picture and description of the tools needed for the installation so that one has even more certainly and speed in execution. September 14, 2015
Might be better option out there This rack adaptor in my opinion put the v47 too far forward on my 08 vstrom. I just went ahead and drilled my own holes in the factory rear rack and made it work for me. July 13, 2015
Did not fit my 05 Vstrom 1000 it claims to fit the Vstrom 1000/650 from 02 to 05. It did not line up at all with the luggage rack that was on my 2005 Vstrom 1000 as described in the instructions. I had to get a drill and steel bit to make the holes that were needed for the rack to fit and hold the top case properly. It was easy to install on the bike after I made the physical adjustments to the base plate. May 18, 2015
Very secure mount This is a review just for the mounting plate; this model was made specifically for my model Suzuki V-Strom. The instructions note that it would be easier to install if the rack was removed from the motorcycles, but it's possible to do with the rack in place. You'll need some open-ended wrenches, and you have to hold the nuts to the wrench with masking tape as you snake them under the rack, but it's not that hard. Once everything was tightened up it all feels very secure, much more than my old Coocase top case (the Givi rack has four points of attachment compared with Coocase's three points). April 27, 2015
Bike specific parts should be easier to install Don't get me wrong; I actually enjoyed two hours of sweat and expletives, because that's what working on a bike is all about. But eight bolts should have taken about ten minutes, particularly on a "bike-specific" part. As I mentioned to Revzilla, the guys at Givi need to meet the guys at Ikea to learn about pre-installing nuts that can only go in one place anyway. That said, the rack holds the case and nothing has come loose in the first thousand miles, so I'm happy with the product. March 30, 2015
Very high quality This top case is a very good quality. Sturdy and great fit and finish. Installation instructions were terrible. Not a hard install just had to back track a couple of times because of them. September 15, 2014
Simple piece of gear that facilitates so much. It's a small adapter plate that does exactly what it's supposed to do. Make sure you get the mounting rails for your top case installed in the right direction, though. I had one turned around backward without realizing it and had to do some shucking and jiving to make it work without disassembling the whole thing and starting over. September 9, 2014

Just bought a 2011 VStrom 650 with the OEM flat rack on the back. Is the E528 all I need to attach a Monokey topcase?

Franklin B: First, welcome to the Vstrom community!

Yes, the E528 mounting kit will allow the use on Monokey top cases on both the DL650(04 to 11) and DL1000(unitl 2012) model Vstrom. The mount was a straight forward install, which can easily be performed with a modicum of mechanical skill and common sense. IT offers a very stable and secure platform for the Monkey top cases and has served me well.

If you're also thinking of eventually adding side cases, take a look at the SW-Motech quicl lock mounts, as they offer options that no other mounts begin to touch. Enjoy your Wee!!!!

Alexander K: Yep. The E528 will allow you to quick mount most Givi tail luggage. I highly reccomend the E52 Maxima with the Admore LED light kit. I absolutely love mine on my 2011 Vstrom. I also have E36 side luggage. Pops on pops off, stuff stays dry even in torrential rain. My wife and I toured almost 10k miles last year without any issues. Congrats on an awesome new bike. Drive safe.

BTW checkout my setup vids on YouTube under ACKIV, Vstrom Setup part 1 thru 4. It walks you through the entire setup of my 2011.
