major design flaws
This rack plate looks great and fits my Givi Trekker top case nicely however it has two major design flaws related to strength. The first is the three quick release twist pins that attach it to the aluminum plate - they are weak and eventually get loose. I had to replace them with stainless steel bolts. The second is the two corner pins that the top case hooks into - the plastic area where the pins are attached is thin and all it took was hitting a decent pothole for them to self destruct, game over. This is not covered by warranty apparently, so I had to buy a new plate. I'm looking into ways to make this stronger - probably a longer countersunk bolt and washers. I shouldn't have to modify the product to make it work.

Could use a better design
I have this SW Motech adapter plate fitted to my Triumph Tiger 1050 so I can carry a Givi Outback 42L top-case.
It seemed like the obvious choice because the previous owner had already installed the Alu-Rack and I really like most things manufactured by SW Motech.
This adapter iis a very sturdy piece of plastic that could benefit from a more thorough design. My first problem came with the installation of six very small screws, which can be easy to loose while handling. These tiny screws barely thread onto the adapter plate but have managed to stay in place for the last 5,000 miles.
Next is the loose fitting of the top-case. The adapter plate comes with two sets of rubber "bobbins" which are used to dampen vibrations and to provide a tighter attachment fit to the top-case. First of all, they're a pain in the neck to install in the tiny holes of the adapter. If you try to screw them they'll break their inserts as they're not designed to sustain any torsional movements.. I broke a couple of the first set (thinner ones) so I ended up using the other included set (thicker ones). I had to hammer them down to get them inside the adapter holes.
It doesn't matter how hard they are to install, they will fall off very easily when washing your bike or by riding over bumps without the case attached. The printed instructions have a part number for those rubber grommets but I haven't figured out a way to order them from SW Motech yet.
The overall fitting of the top-case is loose as it moves slightly around the adapter in all directions. I guess that the mounting points are smaller than they should be allowing the case some movement. I had never had that problem with other Givi adapters.
The other day I discovered another irritating design flaw in which I tried to attach a smaller, lighter commuter rear bag via straps and couldn't find any attachment points within the adapter plate. Is just a massive piece of plastic with no holes or slots to securely slide in a thin strap, regardless of how it looks in the pictures. I was forced to remove the adapter and carry the small duffel bag directly on the Alu-Rack, which is way smaller for carrying almost anything. I'm definitely switching for the whole Givi setup.

Very Weak Mounting System
One pin has already sheared off. I would not buy the Alu-rack or this adapter plate again.

There is no other way to mount a Givi Monokey onto the Alu-rack other than this system, so because of that i would recommend not getting that rack as well.

There are 3 pins total, but 2 are inline with eachother and the whole box will pivot about that point. The moment about the 2 pins creates a shear force on the 3rd, which is taking almost all the stress of the entire system as u ride down the road.

ONE pin less than 1/8" in diameter is the weakest link in this whole system!!! The strength of the Alu-rack doesnt matter if the weakest link is a tiny pin.

Just take your time
I was hesitant to buy this adapter even though it was probably my only real choice. I had a SW MOTECH Alu-rack installed on my BMW F650GS Twin, then recently picked up a used Givi Monokey topcase. After reading the reviews on this adapter plate, it sounded like it had some design flaws. l thought about going with Givi's universal adapter, but Revzilla's customer service provided some sound reasons for sticking with the SW MOTECH plate. Well, I just finished installing the adapter and I'm really happy with it. Granted, there are some really small self-tapping screws and even smaller washers, but they went on fine and tightened up real solid. If you're thinking about this adapter plate and start getting second thoughts about some of the reviews, take my advice (which happens to be the same advice I got from Revzilla) and take your time on the install. I did and I'm one happy customer.

Must-have for Givi top case
If you want to mount a top case on your bike, this is the bit that connects the top case to whatever rack you have already installed on your bike. In my case, I bought a SW-MOTECH Alu-Rack and installed that first, then installed this to the Alu-Rack. Only issue for me was those six little tiny screws that hold the quick-release plates to the bottom of this plate. They are waaay tiny, easily stripped, and/or easy to lose, so make sure you use some sort of thread-locker when you install them.

mounting screws are made from cheap material, doesn't feel very secure
If I had the option to mount my top case directly to my rack, I would do that instead, but the engineers at SW-MOTECH only seem to want to make things a bit more complicated and a little less secure. upon installing the 1/4 turn mounts to my ALU rack one of the screws sheered off inside the rack. no replacement screws provided. I just have to live with it I guess. the plastic is not flimsy itself, but all the mounting points are in the center of the plate which seems like it would be easy to break after a while.

Super easy to install
This adapter was super easy to install on the SW-Motech luggage carrier. I have only had it mounted for less than a week so I really can't speak for it's durability but it seems as though it will be long lasting. Four of the six little screws that hold the the lock mechanism in place just long enough to look it did strip but after the plate is locked on they are pretty much useless.
It fit the Monokey top Case PERFECTLY.

Top quality product
I've tried several different brand mounts but this one really has the versatility that I was looking for. Is well made and there is an option for every trunk/luggage manufacturer eve the option for a custom one. Also is made of a durable material and the quick lock mount makes everything fast and easy.
