Givi SR410 Top Case Rack Kawasaki GTR1400 Concours 2008-2013
I'm a daily rider. Commuting to and from work 25 miles each way. The V46 is a great to keep my pump and plug kit and throw my lunch into. I ride a Kawasaki C14 and while it comes stock with side bags I prefer the tail bag as it's out of site and I don't feel as wide while navigating rush hour traffic. Definitely get the mounting kit for the v46. It does look a little funky but it adds so much stability to it. You can't beat it. I also bought the rack for the top of the V46. On a recent trip to a rally I had an additional bag strapped to the rack and everything was rock solid. There is one down side to all of this. I did buy the additional light kit for the V46 and hated it. Very fiddly to install and it never really worked right. Not very bright and the connection between the mounting rack and case always had issues. I ended up buying a light kit from a different aftermarket supplier for my case and am much more happy. Super bright and it plugs in. No lose connections at all.

Just the Rack for the Right Size Bag
Bought this Rack to Mount the Givi V46 Monokey Topcase I bought when I was looking for a bit of extra storage for a recent road trip, but didn't want to spend as much money as I did for the combination of the mounting rack and top case, but I'm glad I did. The bag is just the right size, fits to BILT Solar Modular helmet, and have some room for compact rain gear.
They are definitely expensive but worth the price. Great feature, fit and finish. Highly recommend.
Oh and Revzilla definitely the place to buy, no hassle returns and great video demo of many of the products, their videos helped me decide which top case to with. Thanks Guys!!!

The rack is strong! It takes a lot of time and patience when attaching it to the bike but it does provide a very strong and stable mount for the topcase.

The instructions suck
I am pretty handy around the garage and tools, but the instructions had alot to be desired. Everything said & done, the bracket feels very solid and secure. The top case mounted up without issue.

Must have with GIVI monokey cases
Install on a 2012 Kawasaki Concours 1400
Install is not easy requires a lot a rear end disassembly to fit. Not crazy about having to use the stock rear rack with this but not much you can do about it. Two bolts provided that attach rear supports to the grab bar mounts do not fit, I had to guy buy different bolts with a smaller head to clear the grab rail. The directions suck and take a while to figure out and final installation of the rear rack takes some finess as not everything lines up perfect. Once installed however the rack is very sturdy and looks good but the finish could be more durable on the rack, it scratches easy.

Should be designed to be a large house fly
This should be designed to look like a large house fly resting on the back of the bike...... .....like the following uploaded photo.....

Challenging install, but spectacular perfromance
This rack provides a solid platform for the largest GIVI cases (I mounted the E55 Tech Case) and maintains the visual styling of the Concours 14. I did a lot of research before buying this rack kit and found some reports of consumers skipping the rack install to mount the rack plate onto aftermarket racks due to the challenging installation. The install can be challenging, but the instructions provide visual descriptions on what to do and the results are awesome. The rack becomes an integral structure of the frame versus just hanging off the rack. The result is a solid structure that provides a great sense of security.
