    Givi Monokey racks

    I just picked up a used 2012 CBF1000 to add to my stable and it came with the givi monokey racks, but no bags. The racks are actually not on the bike and before I start taking everything apart and try figuring this out on my own I was hoping their might be some online documentation on how to mount these racks. Anybody got any links that could steer me in the right direction?

    Greetings to everyone.

    I think this is the most recently active topic among those that have any references to PLXR208. I apologize that I had to "bring it back from the dead", but I think I need your wisdom here.

    I received the set today (PLXR208 and SR777) and I run to the garage to fit it. Everything seemed to be going well until I came to the right side.

    Has anyone had issues fitting the right side holder on the bike? The point that mounts where the exhaust is mounted is at least 3-4 mm off. Before I brute-force it, I decided to ask here, in case anyone else has had the same issue.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Best,

    Nasos

    And here are two photos that demonstrate the issue:

    Loose fit the frames by slackening off all the fixing fastenings until each is only held on by 3 or 4 threads and attach the frames at all the fixing points then work your way around the fixings tightening each fixing a couple of turns, working your way around and around until secure. My Givi pannier frames didn't fit my SC58 straight out the box, I had to drill out and elongate the lower holes on the pannier frames where they attach to the exhaust mounts.

    Hello Art and thank you for your reply.
    I have seen that you are very active and very often helping others with their questions. I appreciate this a lot.  :028:

    I am not sure I can do what you suggest though. This rack is held by the "quick release" (or whatever Givi calls it) system, which means that once the rack is in place I can no longer tighten the fastenings. The only point I can do this is where the exhaust is mounted, the one I am showing at the photo. I've switched and turned everything, it doesn't seem to work.  :006:
    Your solution seems to be the only possible (new hole), which however will disable the quick release at that point. I'm headed to my mechanic now, we'll see if there's a way to "convince" it. Otherwise, yes... New hole and normal bolt with a nut.  :012:

    So unnecessary hussle...

    So, I went back to the garage and did the best that I could and still failed. My mechanic wasn't there, so I haven't come up with a solution, but I think I know what I will do.


    The first thing that I did was to loosen the two screws (1 and 2) that hold the entire holder on the frame, connected the rack on its fastening point and tried to re-fasten the holder on the frame. Totally impossible, unless I used way too much force, which makes me uncomfortable, I don't want my motorcycle to be tensed that way. So, I removed the entire fastening point that givi gives (3rd photo) and reassembled the holder and exhaust with the original bolt.

    My plan now is to mark where the bolt meets Givi's fastener through the hole where the bolt goes, make a new hole, find a longer bolt and fasten it there. This way I will still be able to use the quick-release bolt. I think. I hope.

    I have contacted Givi too, btw. Ideally, they would say "hey, we have redesigned this part, give us your address and we'll send you the correct one".
    But I don't count on it.

    Thank you.  :002:
