I took some pictures with issue  :086:

thank you for information. So, my fear is real. that made me angry.  :232:
The Honda OEM tail rack is much more solid and beautiful than SW.  :138:  i paid it when bought the bike and i don't want to pay again for another tail rack + adaptor ... i am thinking to seek a way to combine them...

here i want to ask about this racks (carriers), actually whole the set.
before you fit it, did you have the original honda side handles for passanger or the original "tail" with can hold the top case? why i am asking... from the begining i taked out the handles for passenger and put the original honda "tail" as a holder for top case. Very solid and nice btw. I put Givi top case on that rack. now i bought SW Trax adv side cases and evo side carriers for them. and here appears a problem :
the bases where the side carriers must be hold (inside, under the seet) can't be used for fit the original "tail" i already have. or if we look from different side - the SW carriers can't be fit on original honda bases.
any comments wellcome.

Nice job!
my hands are from .... other place  :001: so i bought the Givi tool box and it's fits perfectly inside the left side carrier (i think is not good to keep plastic box soo close to exchaust).
i will attach picture when put the carriers on bike.
by the way, as you have the same side carriers and, if i understand right from pictures, you have Trax ADV case there,i want to ask you:
have you the top case too? SW too? before you put side carriers, did you have the original honda handles on side or the original "tail" of honda for top case?

i just got the SW motech Trax adv side cases 37lt. I think 45 lt. is too much for cb500x and make the "tail" too wide.
i search a lot before take them. the last choise was between SW and Givi. the important (for me) difference are :
       Dimensions                (height*depth*width) and weight:
SW Trax ADV 37 lt.             370*228*490mm / 5.1kg
SW ION 37 lt.                     370*230*490mm / 4.9kg
Givi Trekker Outback 37 lt.  387*246*495mm / 5.4kg
i choose the Trax ADV. Germany quality, solid construction.

Givi-1121ST windscreen, quicky review. Only 20 test miles at 0-75mph.

Size - I'm 6'1". It comes up to the bottom of my helmet. See Pic (I put my hand on top, but you can't see my hand, sorry).

Installation - If you can't install this in 15 minutes, do not work on your bike. I think it took 5 minutes, maybe.

Fit - the clutch lever mount barely kisses it at full lock, minor fix. Throttle side lots of clearance. Excellent fit.

Effect - It doesn't vibrate at speeds up to 75mph. Could not go faster due to traffic conditions. It's probably my imagination, but it seemed to use less throttle at 75mph. Certainly makes it way more relaxing at that speed. You can see over the top easy to about 10 feet in front of the bike. It also seemed to deflect way more bugs off my helmet visor.

Cost - $121 US.

Rating - I'd give it a thumbs up at this point. Haven't went long distances, trail riding, or in the rain yet.
good choice as a desing and it is tall enough. i checked this wingshield and it make trouble with handguards (on my cb this moment installed honda handguards) - when turn the handlbar to lock it, handguards hit the windshield.
i want check it with other handguards (for example sw-motech cobra or acerbis). also i saw the ermax windshield - it is really nice and follow the byke lanes.

well, if the bike have the quarantie, better fit Honda's grips. otherway you lost the quarantie. if you don't have this restriction, you should take in mind your finances - OEM parts are really expensive and some times don't give you nothing special. when i take my bike from shop i asked for handguards, they said me - honda's only because the aftermarket make troubles with windshield. not true - only some can make a trouble and only if you turn the handlebar to the end. i paid around 90 euro for 2 soft plastics (not the best one)  :157: without any kind barkbasters.
now i want to istall thermal gripps but must use only OEM because of quarantie  :006:
