Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

GIVI E55 Top Box

Post by DiabloCableGuy on Wed 19 Mar 2014, 11:56 pm

Hey folks, looking at picking up a top box to make day to day life a little easier, being able to leave some gear on the bike would be lovely at times. 

Was looking at the big E55 from Givi, was wondering if anyone had any experience with that box on the CB, if it's just too large.

I have a givi V46 and it's more than big enough for 2 helmets.

I think the e55 could look a touch too big. Even mine looks a bit too big.

I've not had any handling problems, but filtering isn't easy when I have my E41s on too!

I have an E45 (an old Givi box) and it is *just* too small for two helmets - no handling problems.

The main problems with these boxes isn't the size itself, it is the tendancy people have to put too much (heavy) stuff in them!

I have only noticed the handling of my bike change when I put heavy stuff (heavier than the 5kg that Givi laughably state in their literature) in my box.
