Givi top boxes and side cases:
What is the difference between Monokey and Monolock boxes?
Generally speaking Monokey boxes are for Motorcycles while Monolock boxes are for Scooters. Most Monokey boxes are double-skinned which makes them a lot more rigid.
How do I fit a top box to my motorcycle?
In most cases you'll need a specific Givi fitting kit. The way to find out which kit you require is to click the 'my motorcycle'link and find your particular motorcycle on the list.
Do side cases come as a pair?
Generally they do, however there are a few which are sold individually. please refer to the descriptions.
The universal plate included in the Monolock boxes - what is it for?
If your bike already has some sort of base/carrier (mainly on scooters) you can fit the universal plate to your bike's carrier without having to purchase an additional fitting kit.
What is the difference between GIVI and KAPPA top boxes?
They both have their own design of Monokey and Monolock top boxes. However, they all use the same fitting system, which means that KAPPA top boxes can fit onto GIVI fitting kits and vice versa.
Givi fitting kits:
Why is my motorcycle not listed on your website?
It is possible that Givi may not make or has discontinued the fitting kit for your motorcycle. If you own a new model Givi may still be in the process of designing a kit for it, we suggest you give us a call or drop us an email so we can check.
How easy is it to fit a Givi fitting kit?
They are fairly easy to fit, however to assist you we have a link to fitting instruction for each fitting kit we list on our website.
Do you have the fitting kits in stock?
Yes we do stock a number of them, however as there are hundreds of options, it is impossible to stock them all. Saying that, we receive a delivery from Givi UK every day, so as long as Givi UK have the kit in stock any ordered fitting kit is generally with us the next day.
Can you help if i have trouble fitting my Givi fitting kit?
A common mistake when people fit the kits is that they tighten the nuts too much before having all parts in place. The way to do it is, have all the parts in place partly done up and then gradually tighten everything up.
What is the difference between GIVI and KAPPA fitting kits?
There is no difference beside the packaging being branded 'KAPPA' . The pdf instructions for both are identical. The kits are made in the same factory to the same specification..
