GIVI Mounting Compatibility Question
« on: November 12, 2019, 10:04:42 pm »
GIVI newbie here.

I finally found a GIVI E-128 top box adapter/mounting plate for my 1999 C10.  Not easy to find!

Question:

I see two general styles of GIVI top boxes, MonoKey and MonoLock.  Will BOTH styles fit my GIVI E-128 mounting kit, or will only one of those two styles actually mount to the plastic bracket correctly?

I've attached a picture of the E-128 mounting kit, so you can see what the attaching tabs on the mounting bracket look like.

Thanks.

Bob

Monokey and Monolock are not interchangeable.
You have a Monokey base.

Thanks very much for clearing that up.  That's kind of what I expected.

So, now off to shop for a MonoKey top box...
