Givi SR410 Does Not Work for 2015 Concours
« on: August 10, 2017, 08:36:29 pm »
I've learned this the hard way, and there is surprisingly almost no info on the internet about this, so I wanted to share:  the Givi SR410 mounting rack does Not work for a 2015 Concours.  Evidently in 2015 Kawasaki moved a tab on the frame so that it is in the way of being able to attach one of the mounting arms that the SR410 uses.  Actually, the Givi web site only lists it as working up through the 2014 model year, but there are many sellers on the internet that say it works for 2008 to the present.  It's worth noting that the Givi site doesn't list any mounting racks that work with the Concours after the 2014 model year.

I'm returning the SR410 and I bought the Phil's Farkles rack with Monokey adapter already attached instead.  Phil was very helpful when I talked with him on the phone, and the rack is now installed and works great.  I'm just surprised at the lack of info on this issue.  Seems like half the Concours out there have a Givi topcase, and I thought by buying a 2015 in 2017 things like this would be figured out.  But you learn something every day.

You'll like Phil's rack. I bought one for a Givi 52L and it's solid.

So far it seems to work fine with my new Givi Maxia V56.  Only complaint from me is that it rattles a bit -- but not sure if that is the rack's fault or the topcase's fault.

Yeah, mine does too. Phil includes some spacer pieces to sort of shim it snug. Mine rattles now, too so it's time to re-address the shims. I think mine have compressed. But his rack is a nice piece of work. Very solid.
