    I want to attach GIVI V46 top case to 2013 GSA(camhead) and I just wonder whether there are different options than $292 GIVI part#076SRA5102 mounting plate?
    did anybody successfully use any univarsal plates?
    thanks

    You can easily use a universal Givi plate to mount to the GSA's steel rack.

    Make your own plate out of stainless steel or aluminum ...cost ~$30.

    Givi requires a particular tab that clicks into your case. Don't fart around with making your own, the last thing you want is that V46 bouncing down the highway into a car. I had a GSA and the universal plate from Givi bolts onto your GSA rear rack, no problem. I had a Maxia E55 on it.

    I will be mounting up a universal plate tomorrow on 2014 GSA. It looks it should easily work, but it looks rather easy to break in comparison to the other GIVI racks w/ plates I've used on Oilheads previously. I'll let you know
