Rear rack conversion plate to take Givi Monokey top boxes

Hi fellow owners
I dont like the Honda top box, to large and high, I have a couple of Givi boxes I would like to use. Anyone managed to fine a suitable conversion plate or a way of grafting on a givi plate?

Thx

    GIVI sells a universal plate...maybe there's a way to secure it to the rear rack in some way? Mine is fixed on my CB500X with a bolt that attaches to a hook that may be secured to the rack. I'll see when my TA arrives and if I can use the universal plate on the rack.

    Cheers, V.

    thx for this, I have seen this Givi uni rack at sportbikeshop, tempted to buy it and see if I can fit it, you have given me the inspiration to try it.

    Hi,
    yep, this is the one. I attached it to the aftermarcket rack I have on my CB500X and it still work wothout any issues. I moount a GIVI V47 monokey. Only once or twice per year I monitor that the nuts are well locked.
    My doubt is that maybe the bolts are not long enough for the TA rear rack. If they are long enough, I would put on the hooks a rubber adhesive before mounting, not to scratch the TA rear rack.

    Cheers, V.
