Givi top box rack mounted on Triumph Trophy Top Box
« on: January 28, 2014, 02:33:47 am »
Well finally gathered the courage to take a drill to my new baby and stuck a rack on top of my Top Box.

Easy to do. 3 Minutes work to unscrew the top box skin.

3 Hours of prevarication getting the positioning absolutely perfect  :084:

10 Minutes to drill holes, mount & reassemble..

Looks good. You have more nerve than I.  Just thinking of drilling into the top box makes me shudder.

That does indeed look good. I have one of those racks on a Givi top box that I had used on my prior bike, a 2010 Kaw. Concours-14. I've been thinking about transferring it to the Trophy's top box, but wasn't sure how it would look. Thanks to your photos, I now have a really good impression.

In a nutshell, what's involved in removing the top skin?

It's really not that big of a deal. I've done it without any hassle and I ain't even all that careful. I am not much of a perfectionist, but it came out perfect anyway when I added a rack to my 84 Venture when it was still fairly new.

Now, I am going to have to get a rack like freefallnz has and mount it on my TTSE top box too.

Is that this rack? Is there anything I should know before I order it? Are there different sizes and such?

Looks like a very neat job  :047:

A thought : Keep an eye on the retaining straps to make sure the extra weight
doesn't pull them off their mounts when the lid is fully open  :028:
