Givi E21 panniers hard to remove
on: December 20, 2020, 09:24:57 AM
Hi all.

I ride a 2016 CB500X with Givi E21 panniers mounted on SW-MOTECH Evo rack. I love every thing about the setup except for the struggle of removing the panniers from the rack. I've rekeyed everything so I can use the same key for the panniers and the top box. All three open and close with no problems and the top box releases from its mount easily.

With the panniers, it takes lots of pressure on the release button and usually multiple tries before they come off.

Has anyone else had this problem and if you did, how did you solve it?

Thanks.

As I remember , I just opened the box, and put a fingertip, on the red trigger.

Mine were a bit of a PITA too.

Take the boxes off the racks.
Loosen the two screws for the top latch on the rack.
Put the box on to the lower mounts and ease it on to the top mount but not enough to lock it on.
tighten the two screws for the top latch.

Thanks. I'll give that a try when I get home from the current trip.
