Givi/Kappa racks are stronger than you think
on: September 02, 2018, 03:06:24 AM
The plastic quick mounts are the weak link. The Givi/Kappa (same company for those that don't know) racks are strong. Here is proof. My bike is suspended by the racks. I didn't use Givi/Kappa luggage because of the weak mounts. My mounts are steel on my cases. I carry roughly 60+lbs(27kg+) spread over my side cases and trunk.




Loaded for a week offroad in the woods. Probably over 60lbs across my cases and trunk.
