Top case - rack only, is it possible
« on: October 26, 2017, 02:46:58 PM »
Ok, so contrary to me previous post, I am now looking to get a top box fitted as I miss not having one. The thing is, I already have a perfectly good almost new Givi box from my last bike and all I really want is the rack to fit to the bike- however this would appear to not be straightforward. Despite having e mailed 4 dealers no one has replied with a solution- so, I dare say others are soon to be the same as me given the bikes popularity so any solutions with regards fitting a top box, (hopefully less expensive than just buying the whole thing including box from Ducati), shall be appreciated.. all the best. G.

It's the same rack as the 1200 enduro it that helps and possibly the same as the 1200 DVY multistrada.  It would be worth checking out. I have the rack  only on my 950.

Hello and thanks for the replies.
I would like to get the Ducati one if possible as opposed to the SW mote character one.
So did you buy yours and add it after you bought the bike.?Ducati got back to me and said that I would have to buy the whole top box kit including top box- which seems crazy and Givi don't list a rack and,again, haven't replied to my e mail request.
If you bought yours after buying the bike and added it yourself, do you know the code or how you purchased it?
I'm not getting far with my enquiries apart from the assistance from you good people on this forum.
Cheers
G

mine is from ducaty, but it was in the deal for the bike, and just make the deal for only the topcase.

if they want they get it, most of the time they said this only goes with the kit, but that is a real bullsh#t.

but if you want the rack only go to givi and the rack for the multistrada 1200 e equal for the 950

Yeh, if only it was that simple. I have e mailed Givi twice and they say they don't do a rack for the Multistrada 1200 or 950. So I told them that they do as they must supply Ducati with them but still no further forward- frustrating but will keep trying.
Thanks for the advice though.

You can have my unused rack with all the fixings and colour matched red 47 litre topbox for 350, I'm never going to use them

Thanks for the offer - it's appreciated but I'm trying to avoid paying that kind of money when I have a decent, newish Givi top box already and just need the rack.
Cheers though.

Ok- got it sorted - I bought a Shad rack for 75 delivered from AJ Suttonand it fits perfectly, just to fit the Givi plate and that's it sorted, with absolutely no thanks to Ducati or Givi who quite frankly we're hopeless.
I have to say, I love the bike but the Ducati after service when seeking advice regarding anything other than "straightforward and off the shelf" is pretty poor in my opinion- I know my friend has been treated appallingly by 2 different dealers regarding after sales service and problems with his MS1200- it just gives me "the fear " in case anything major cropped up. .These bikes are expensive and I do wonder why this is the case when manufacturers must know, but possibly don't appreciate, how passionate folk are about an item they have spent a fair bit of cash on.
Anyway, top box issue is now all sorted and all is good at present, thanks for the advice.
