My H2 with original Top Case!
Givi mounts.
And original panniers.
Cool setup, is that a Kawasaki top case, what was the cost and where did you purchase it. How much stuff can you put in it?

This is my setup ... the side on view shows how much further forward it sits. If your better half uses it as a backrest I'd suggest the webike over the Givi. There is a gentleman on here that has had the Givi brackets break twice.
On webike I'm only seeing Givi branded racks. Is your rack discontinued?

This is the one --> https://www.japan-webike.nl/products/23829277.html
And then a Monokey plate. Did the holes in the rack match up to the Monokey, or did you need to drill new one?

I'm not seeing anything that looks like it slides. So I'm guessing the relative position of the case (forward) is due to how forward the Monokey is mounted on the cross bars...

Thanks!

Indeed the plate is "adjustable" in terms of being able to move it back and forth. I just used the universal give plate like this one (no drilling required) ... https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorc ... rod/206858

Although I don't have a top case, I did purchase a set of Givi V37 side cases for my previous bike (a ZZR1200), and I will be mounting the V37s on the H2 SX. My Givi racks will accept a top case, but my preference is to just use a big dry bag strapped across the passenger seat... I only ride solo on long trips. I'll post some pics up once I get them mounted.

I considered using Givi panniers because the std ones have a weird shape which makes them a bit difficult (at least they're pretty!) but am turned off by all the mounting hardware. The std ones are so easy to fit/remove without the addition of racks.

Although I haven't installed the Givi racks yet, I am surprised at how heavy they are... guessing maybe 8kg! This is a long trip touring bike for me, so I don't care so much about the weight, and I won't carry a passenger so I won't be overloaded by any stretch.
