Givi PLR5217 Monokey side racks
To properly use the Givi Dolomiti side cases you’ll need the Givi PL5127 or PLR5127 pannier racks. These racks have a mounting system that, wel, mounts the cases securely to the motorcycle. I opted for the PLR5127 racks because they’re removable. Partly because here in Mexico parts and accessories are scarce and this is what I could get, but also because I figured that when I’m not going anywhere exciting or whatever I’d just leave the pannier racks at home.
I did remove them a few times but for the most part I leave them on the bike and even considered bolting them on through the little lock gap. Right behind the passenger foot-peg there is a slot or hole where a lock fits through. I kept a few spare bolts from the assembly kit so I could bolt the racks on if I wanted to. But why really bother… They’re only removable with an odd shaped triangle key. A tool most thieves won’t have.
