top box

what size are you after and what use do you require i.e. toruing or just something to stick stuff in for work etc. I find givi are better quality for the larger top boxes.I use givi because they come with nice optional extras like extra brake light for the idiots in cars. Personally i don't think there is much between kappa and givi and they both fit on the same racks. More down to personal perference i think.

Additional question re topboxes

Just a quick addition to the above:

Are all topboxes compatible with all racks? Is it just a case of getting the correct fitting plate for your rack?

I only ask as I have an ER-6 and wondering what sort of rack to get for it that will allow me a reasonable choice of topboxes. My tailbag is driving me crazy...

any givi rack will take both kappa luggage and givi luggage if you get the correct fitting plate. Not sure about other makes of luggage.
