I believe it can be done but you need to cut a little out of the plastic DCT cover to clear one of the mounts.

It worked great . you have to cut the cover to fit. the only problem is to take that cover off you must loosen the crash bar to get it off :787:

I'm not quite sure but I think Givi has a dedicated crash bar just for the DCT

They do there is a trim out in the bar for the cover.  You wedge a socket in there to tighten it up.
Bikes are like women.  What you want and what you think you want change after the first ride.

I believe for the DCT it's made of gold...  :020:
