yes the Wart will generically mount to the OE rack
A guy I know calls a top case a wart as they stick up in the air
Bought this E370 Givi Monolock with back pad and all the mounting pieces in like new condition for $150 shipped off Ebay. Positive feedback for Burnt Rubber Motorsports in Marietta GA.
I used the Givi generic mounting kit but had to get longer M6X40 bolts. Took a few minutes to find out where they would fit securely under the plastic part of the BMW rack. The top box is rated at 6lbs, that's 1/2 a 12 pack so I think it will work fine without the E193 kit. I will keep a close eye on it for loosening but it has locknuts or shifting. The BMW top box rack is the same for a lot of BMW applications, cross referenced the pn and it is the same as the scooter rack so I think a scooter box for $300 might even work as well as a lot of BMW top cases.
This E370 is 19" wide, an E450 is 22" and would look good without asking does this top box make my bike look fat. Might hold two helmets also.
Beware those with no sense of humor as they will cause you misery.
