Givi E528 Top Case Rack V-Strom DL650/DL1000
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.

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.

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.

Product does not let the seat be removed or installed without some shims being added under the bracket that attaches the base to thebike. Other than 3 installs and removals to get the shims in right everthing is ok.

Simple mounting bracket
I bought the E528 mounting kit for my V46 Top case. The mounting bracket was easy to mount and works perfectly. Took me about 30 min to mount my top case.

It installed and it worked
Givi quality at Givi price. The install was a bit clumsy and the instructions were Givi-vague. But it is a quality part, engineered well.
