Givi SR357 Top Case Rack Yamaha FJR1300 2006-2014
Gives the strength to the subframe of the FJR needed for top boxes
The install was straight forward and took little time to complete.
I appreciate the rigidity to the sub-frame of the bike. It works will loaded up to 20lbs and my wife leaning on the back pad of the E55 case used with this mount.

I installed this mount for touring. Although at some point I'll add a Givi trunk, currently I use a drybag for multi-day rides. This rack is a very solid base for securing my drybag, tent, sleeping bag and pad. It installed very easily. Fit was spot on and the mounting plate fitment also excellent. Rack looks good on my FJR with lines that go well on the bike - not an afterthought. Overall very pleased and no complaints for my usage.

SR357 is THE ONLY way to go
If you are looking to put a givi tail case on your FJR1300, and be able to load the max of 22 lb, the SR357 is your only real choice. It replaces the plastic/fiberglass stock grab bars and "luggage rack" that can't really hold any luggage. The tubular steel construction is very sturdy, and will keep your rear subframe from flexing at all. Also it's a far more secure set of grab bars for a passenger. SOLID.
The Fit and finish is OK, though sometimes there may be small issues with fitting, particularly due to manufacturing variations with the rear platform. Sometimes there will be a small gap between the platform and rear-most spacer, that requires a washer to fill. You might also need to get a slightly longer rear bolt. It was not a major issue though.
Also, as others have said, check yours to make sure you get all the washers/bolts you should. Mine was missing one of the 8M washers.

Great for my FJR
This product has helped me to equip my FJR with a top box without fear of sub-frame failure. Revzilla shipped promptly and offered a fair price. Thank you.

Great product and easy to fit , but need s little tweak as ther is a gap under the rear most attachment points that need 3 washers to fill the gap , I had read similar reviews on the FJR forum .. All good .

Much more rigid
Much more rigid than the factory grab bar/support. Hard to say whether it's the mount or the case, but this combo has far less buffeting than the OEM mount and case.

easy to install
Easy to install. Look wise it is pretty basic. Could be cheaper.
