I’m having problems occasionally with fitment of the OEM KQR top case on the Givi MonoKEY mounting kit. Anyone have the OEM trunk mounted on my rack (with the SW-MOTECH kit), or another brand rack with the MonoKEY system. Anything OTHER THAN the OEM KQR Carrier-Plate ?  I’d like to hear if it fits correctly.

Phil,

Sorry for the delay in response, I just came across your post/question. I have a '12 with this exact mounting plate the one on the right of your pic and the factory trunk.  What about your does not fit quite right?  To be clear, my trunk has a plate that bolts to the aluminum base plate using hex heads and fender washers then the trunk locks in place to the this plate.

Is this what you are wondering about?

Cheers!

And while we're talking Phil's products, does anyone have a Givi 52L mounted on Phil's Rack on a C-14 with the rail extenders? Phil and I were talking about that earlier today, so this is only a LITTLE hijack. :-) Thanks.

That would be the older OEM trunk that was a MonoLOCK system. The KQR is the latest offering from Kawa. that is supposed to be a MonoKEY. It is sold with it’s own KQR mounting plate that replaces the stock rack. Even though it is supposed to be a Monokey, I’ve found a couple that don’t fit MY rack with the Monokey mount I sell. Thanks for the info.

Phillip, I met another COGger that told me you now offer a Monolock mount for the older OEM Monolock trunks.
Do I have correct information?

Ride safe, Ted

I have one left, they are not always available and I have to make mods to the rack & kit. That adds $60 to the price of my rack. Here’s a photo of the results.


I don’t know how THAT happened..???  --------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Thanks Phillip. That's exactly the mount I installed on my bike w/your rack.
I had to order the mount from Australia when I did mine...

To any that are considering a Phil's rack and have the Monolock trunks.
This mount is far superior to the one offered by Kawasaki with the earlier OEM Trunk.

Ride safe, Ted
