Givi top case

Anyone know if it is relatively easy to modify a Givi mono-lock top case to fit a mono-key mount?

Nope. The mounts are very different.

The monokey has two cutouts for tabs at the back of the case and corresponding fingers on the plate. The monolock has a flat tab on the case itself and a bar that extends up from the plate.

Having used both, Givi's claim that the monokey cases and mounts are more durable is absolutely true.

Actually you can and it is very simple. Apparently the answers you are receiving are from those who have never done it.

GIVI or possibly Kappa makes a monolock to monokey adapter. It's a piece of metal that you attach to the mushroom bolts of a monokey mount which has a metal loop in between th ecatch the monolock cases backside.

I've seen these on a few euro bikes with givi side and top racks. I had to do a double take but have seen enough of them to realize it wasn't some guys personal mod.

But it looks simple enough that you could do it with a piece of angles aluminum.

I'll try to find a pic.

No, I'm talking about a tiny little piece of metal you attach to your monokey mount to allow it to accept a monolock case.

Here's the TT version of what I'm talking about.



The GIVI version is simpler looking and doesn't seem to be available any longer, but anyone with a dremel, a drill and a piece of angled aluminum can make one.

Never seen one of those--cool!

That'd work for some mounts like Touratech's, but a lot of monokey topcase mounts, including the "universal" one Givi sells, don't have the mushroom bolts--they have plastic fingers to fit the slots in the case:
