yes it's a 130-17" not a 150-17" but this guy got over 18,000 miles before showing cord on his.
yeah that a low mileage tire if i've ever seen one.

Im just telling you what ive heard. I never said i know first hand. Replacing tires when the cord shows is replacing a tire way to late. Also how many miles are being ridden on tarmac and how much off road? It all makes a difference.

Well, after 23 days, my Givi luggage racks arrived from Cli-Max. Can't beat the price, $113.84 + $15 shipping. Can't find them for under $206.00 anywhere else.

That's a good price on some very nice racks. Lots of options for side cases with them.

Other than the Givi-branded cases, such as the Trekker series, E360, etc., do any other manufacturers produce bags -- hard side or soft -- that mount up on a Givi Monokey rack?

I like the look of the TRK33/TRK46 but just want to know what my options are.

I've had the PLR6401 rack set up installed, but no Tiger-specific cases yet.

Pelican cases, Most soft bags and I think there is an adapter at Twisted throttle for Trax cases.

The racks were so easy to install even I could do it. Everyone that sells them has pictures on their site. Try Cli-Max, Revzilla etc. I put the Wolfman Summits on there and they work very well. It's a great setup because they install with a key device and you can remove or replace them in seconds. Again, Cli-Max has a price that is kind of hard to believe compared with the rest. Thanks Yossarian for turning me on to that deal!

Nice looking rack. It looks very solid, but it doesn't look like it is drilled for Givi hardware. Will Givi cases fit?

Not sure if Givi top box will work with it. I use a Pelican 1520.

Have point out that they look a bit flimsy compared to the SWmotech ones which are strong enough to act as crash bars when needed......


Can't deny that's a good price though.

Not sure how they'd do in a crash but they feel very solid and secure when mounted.

Well, I have the Givi ones on my Tiger955i and they are bent after a fall. The pannier was scratched but the frame bent.

This is why I had Happy Trail SU Racks on my Girlie and will do so again with my 800XC. Having your rack serve double duty as a roll cage is a must.
