Givi PL532 Side Case Racks Suzuki V-Strom DL650 2004-2011
Like the others have said, easy install.
These racks are definately made for the older v-strom (I have an 08) and they fit perfectly. The finish and hardware that's included appears to be well made. The install took about 45 minutes. I have a top case which made the install take a bit longer. These racks were shipped fast and arrived within 2 days of ordering.

Very easy and fast install. Anyone can do!
Too easy to install . Used my mounting bolts, came with allen bolts in kit, but factory bolts look better and long enough.

Great racks for the money!
As usual, the racks arrived in a couple of days from order. Unlike some others, I found these quite easy to install. Everything lined up reasonably well, and once mounted they appeared to be quite sturdy and well made. I'm using these in conjunction with Givi E21 hard bags, and they mounted up with ease. I highly recommend these!

They do great with my V-Strom Ammo Cans
I was worried at first that the tabs on top would interfere with the placement of my ammo cans, but they easily unscrewed. I originally ordered up some Motech's for the quick release but they were missing parts and my trip was coming up sooner than anticipated. I bought these from Revzilla and they got here QUICK! To install, just make sure you loosely fasten all bolts to align everything correctly and then secure it. The ammo can job took some work, I had to make a quick template out of some spare lumber. Bought some rubber washers and it works amazingly. I just got back from my trip and everything worked better than expected even on the dirt trails up in the mountains. These racks also have less width than the motech's which is nice but I will miss the quick release.

OK for the price.
This rack seems to be well made however the install was challenging as the rack didn't fit perfectly and in the process I snapped off three bolts which had to be drilled out and replaced. I did get it though and in the end appears secure, I just wont be taking it off anytime soon.

Great fitting rack
Finish was perfect, fit was near perfect. Once installed, these racks have performed flawlessly. I am really enjoying the Givi quality design. Using with 2 E360 cases.

Sturdy, straightforward install
Nice racks for the money. Installed easily on my DL650. Looks okay with bags off and provides some protection in a tip over.

The Givi sidecase racks are great. Perfect fit and easy installation, (except for nearly stripped mounting thread - from stock bolts, not caused by this product). If you want to go with the monokey sidecases these are fantastic. Once the racks are mounted, cases go on and off in seconds. Perfect fit with no trouble. Follow directions, loosely place all bolts before systematically tightening - you can do this.
