Does anyone have an OEM Kawasaki “KQR" luggage rack ??
« on: April 20, 2018, 09:15:15 pm »
If you have one that you could live without for about a week, I need to borrow one so I can take measurements to verify the OEM KQR Trunk will fit a MonoKEY setup. I’ll pay shipping and all cost if I could borrow it for a short time. No harm will come to it, all I need to do is measure parts. I live in TX. Thanks.

This is the base plate I’m referring to:

Do you still have the pictures of mine? Let me know if that's the right one. I'll be happy to help if so.

Thanks HOSSPOWER, yours is the older MonoLOCK universal mounting plate. The KQR is the latest rack, supposed to be a MonoKEY that is being sold now. I’m thinking Kawasaki changed it just enough so it isn’t compatible with other Givi Monokey racks. Possibly, the OEM trunk will only fit the OEM rack??

Yes, that’s the one. Could you please give me an accurate measurement from center to center of the two forward “posts”? That’s the ones that engage the slots in the bottom of the trunk.  It may be easier to measure the slots in the trunk. I’d sure appreciate it. Phil

c-c = 227.5 mm
tab width = 16 mm

Same c-c dimensions as on my other givi aluminum rack that I use on my Versys 1000.

Thank you Olie, that’s about .020" different than other measurements I’ve gotten.. Since most trunks mating to that are plastic, I doubt .020 is too far out of spec.
I really appreciate your help. Phil
