Givi xs308 tank ring problem (not bf03)
on: April 26, 2015, 06:54:11 PM
hi all   today i bought a givi xs308 and tanklock ring for my 14 plate crosstourer and unfortunatly i have found that the supplied ring (Givi part BF03) does not match the tank screws so after looking around i cannot get a straight answer as to which is the one i need  can anyone with a givi lock on a new ct please tell me which ring i need.   

i can supply pics to confrim if needed but my tank top has 5 bolts, 1 top....2 either side and 2 either side bottom  if it helps

many thanks in advance

I no longer have the CT so I can't double check, but I remembered that BF03 was the correct one as soon as I saw you mention it, and checked the seller's website that I bought it from, only to confirm it indeed was BF03.
average on my VFR1200X

I had a similar problem, I bought the sw-motech version which fits bags connection and givi tank bags, apparently 2014 onward crosstourers are fitted with a 5 screw/bolt filler, earlier ones are fitted with a 7 screw/bolt filler but some early 2014 models still came with 7 hole fillers.  If anyone needs a 5 bolt tankring  I have an unused one with all fittings, £10 posted

For CT later than 2014 honda came with 5 fixing holes. As far as I am informed it is a BF20. And I am waiting to get one to my tank.

Abilek  you are correct that you will require a BF20 If you have 5 bolt holes on the tank filler as the 7 bolt hole filler is the BF03 Plate but if you like i did contact givi uk they have no clue and i had to go through my honda dealer after i recieved the Wrong one in the purchase from another store.

scotsy   yours is the bf03 as i can count 7 bolt holes


x 11 thanks for the offer you did as a pm i think (Been Ill and not slept well) i have it sorted now and the bag is fantastic


cheers all anyhow
