Givi Top Case

As I use the blue beast to commute every day in the crowded Paris suburbs, I bought today a Givi E470 top case.
I will remove the side cases to ease lane splitting. An other reason is that it is no more possible to open the side cases with the top case fitted.







By the way, the pictures are taken in front of the "cimetière des chiens" (Cemetery of Dogs) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cimeti%C3%A8re_des_Chiens in Asnières sur Seine where the famous movie star Rin Tin Tin is buried.

Oli,
Did you just use a universal Givi monolock plate or is there one made specifically for the S10? Good to know you can't open the panniers with the Givi top case fitted, which is my top case of choice.

Hi GB,
This is the universal Givi monolock plate which was included with the top case. So, no additional gear to buy.
I know that some people were able to mount the top case higher (home made bracket) in order to be able to open the side cases.

I saw one of these today for the first time, I think Yamaha should be charged with cruelty to poor people.

Terrible, how life sucks for you!

You must have done a deal on the tires? And gotten the poor thing dirty already!

Nope, i'm an Offroad rider, and Trailwings are reasonable dual sport tires, but not very confortable off tarmac, espacially the rocky split road here about are no fun with semi road tires, and in Autumn the mud is undoable, so i ride Tkc's since 1999.

And if you ask the dealer to fit them right away, he can sell the BW's as new, so it's just a swap deal. And i must say, although i only did some quiet back roads (still breaking in the engine) i'm amased at how well the ABS functions on reasonable steep downslopes, it outbraked my guts with a pristine bike :-)

I Can confirm the rubbyness at about 3000 rpm though, its not much, but you defenitely feel a bit of een slight judder like a slightghtle slipping clutch, not pinging, but some rithmics out of the drivetrain i presume.

But hey if it were silky smooth, it would be like riding elektric !

Oh and my southern brother, don't sulk, you not even could buy one no, they are oficially sold out now (90 sold in the Netherlands in 1,5 month) it's a Hit :-)

I hope this bike becomes a raving success, and it looks like it's moving that way. Please continue posting your experiences with the bike, and have fun breaking it in!

Well its first stint of the breaking in is completed, onto Wemperhardt it ran 1:18.8 so a lot of petrol was being used to polisch internal surfaces, at the very long slope down to Eupen it was verry funny to see the display saying it runs 1:37 doing 110 km/h :-)



It now has 533 on the odo, so can be used as intended dilligently, and consumption is now down to 1:20, so it's loosening up nicely, Wednesday it's first service, than we see if it took the first hurdle nicely, he feels verry sound and quite confidence inspiring, the TKC's are almost rubbed in now.
