Givi M5 Monokey Top Case Mounting Plate
Used for a year, realized it snapped
Hey all, I have been using this for over a year and it served me well riding around the potholes NYC. Riding around recently I noticed a rattling and upon inspection noticed the mounting plate snapped under pressure. I used this with the Maxia and loaded it with medium loads such as luggage, clothes, groceries etc. My recommendation is not to expect to use it for anything super heavy.

Worked as expected on a Honda CTX800
Installed this on my Wife's machine as a birthday gift, with the model specific arms and it went on easily enough. I was expecting the arms to replace the passenger grips but the are actually they fit underneath with a custom link plate. Seems strong enough, if a little clunky.
These seem to be the only alternative the expensive OEM rack which is rated at a much lower load capacity. Even the Givi is rated a bit low I think. Probably at their lawyers' insistence.
If you wanted to I think you could have used the arms with almost any top box plate and saved quite a bit of money, but I happened to have a spare Givi box, so this one made sense.

Like my review of the support brackets, I haven't really tested this out fully yet. It seems to work, its strong and secure and I think the price is great for the quality. The support brackets seemed overpriced but this seems pretty spot on for how high quality it feels. The top case moves a little when installed but that is probably due to the rubber mounts but it feels securely in place. There were some missing rubber washers in the package but its a small issue I was able to deal with. Overall I like this. I wish it was a little easier to remove if I don't want to ride with a case but that is no indication of the product quality or performance.

Required to mount GIVI Monokey top cases (M7 plate would have worked also).
Got along with the fitted support brackets for my FZ6. Took an hour or two to install both. Very solid mount and works great.

This top plate easily installed, allowed the mounting of my monokey v47 and holds it securely. It's just a Plastic mounting plate that comes with a few nuts and bolts. Seems expensive for what it is but it does it's job well and it has an excellent finish.

Works like a Charm !
This product from Givi is absolutely compatible with the top case it is intended to hold. The installation was a snap !
Simple and it came with all the necessary hardware to do the job. I love the looks of it without the top case also ! Well finished so as to look like a part of the original equipment of the bike !
