Which top case? Empty
PostSubject: Which top case?   Which top case? I_icon_minitimeSat Apr 11, 2009 8:40 pm

I have been looking at top cases for my Silverwing and have narrowed it down to the Givi monokey e 52 and the monolock E 47. There seems to be a big price difference and I am unsure of what is needed to mount either of these.

Any advise will be much appreciated.

Robin,

Do you ride anyone much? You may want to try this site:

www.cruiserbag.com

I'm thinking of getting this and taking my top case off. I have the cheap-e topcase I got on ebay for about $70 shipped. It isn't as nice as a Givi though. When I had my Majesty I had the 46 liter Givi and really liked it. Very high quality. Tell us what you get when you get one.

The monolock is for light weight usage only.

Monokey vs. Monolock


We get questions about the difference between the Monokey and the Monolock
lines. Here are some basic differences:
Which top case? Modbul1Generally speaking, the Monokey cases can hold more volume than the
Monolock cases. However, within the products that we carry, this is
really only evident in "smallest" (E30 - Monolock) and "largest" (E52 -
Monokey). The other 3 cases we carry are pretty close in size,
regardless of which product line they come from.
Which top case? Modbul1Regardless of size, the Monokey cases (at least the ones we carry) have a
carrying capacity of 22 pounds whereas the Monolock cases are only rated at
6.6 pounds. If you plan to carry substantial weight, you should be
considering the Monokey line.
Which top case? Modbul1The Monokey and Monolock cases use different mounting racks; a Monokey
case will not work with a Monolock mount and vice-versa. However, a
Monokey rack will support all Monokey cases and a Monolock rack will support
all Monolock cases. Thus, you have options for upgrading (or
downgrading) within a product line without purchasing another mount.
Which top case? Modbul1The Monokey cases do not come with a mounting rack; you must purchase one
separately. We try to keep in stock a number of Monokey mounting plates
for certain touring-class scooters (see below); if your bike isn't listed,
please contact us to see if we can get a mount for
your specific bike.
Which top case? Modbul1The Monolock cases do come with a mounting plate that is designed to be
used on many bikes that already have a tubular luggage rack. However,
some bikes (notably, many of the touring-class scooters) don't have a suitable
mounting rack. Here again, we try to stock Monolock racks for many of
these bikes. Unless otherwise noted, if you purchase a Monolock case and
a Monolock rack, you will end up with an extra "universal" Monolock mounting
plate.
