Givi Trecker Outback
on: May 28, 2015, 01:51:36 AM
Just replaced the OEM Beauty case with the Givi Trecker Outback. Needed a bigger case,and one that's waterproof. The leak's not severe. Just caught me unawares and wet my clobber. Hopefully the Givi one keeps things dry. Now at least i can lock the shoei neotec up safely. Was getting a little paranoid leaving it in full sight of all and sundry...

Best Helmet on the market...'king dear but..

Hi Hamish, what size trekker did you get? I am thinking about one of these, but I think 58 litres may be a bit to large, do you have any pics too please?

Got the 42 litre. The 58 is way too big...I think

Just back from tour of Ireland and met a guy at the ferry port on a Yamaha Tenere with the 58 litre Trekker box . . .so I tried it on my bike and it looked okay I think . . .(I have the givi V47 topbox with the V35 panniers), but if I did more long haul touring would have gone for the Outback kit !

If you think it fits Buddy go for it! I use a big back box and roll bag over the passenger seat instead of the panniers

Am now looking for a way to key the top box with the bike key. Bike key fits in the lock perfectly so only need to change them little cams with the right ones.
Anyone done this?   Can I get the lock out of the OEM top case? and how..
Any clues.

Cheers

Just altered the Givi Top Box Lock to take the CT Ignition Key. Work's like a charm and only took a Lazy Sunday Afternoon. Back to one key for all....Time well spent.

Hi Hamish, what a coincident.

I have just bought a Crosstourer with the Honda luggage and a Shoei Neotec lid. Can I assume from your post that the lid wont fit in the Honda Top Box?
