Well, it's hard to rate just the E55 Topcase alone without considering some of the accessories you'll need: $60 - M5 mounting plate $80 - E96B topcase rack $80 - E111 backrest pad $65 - E112 stop light kit $15 - Z880 wiring harness ------------- $300 And you'll need a sidearm mount, like: $91 - Top Case Monorack FZ Sidearms 447FZ I've got about six months or so experience with my case, and have all of the accessories above. First, I agree with others that Givi instructions are poor. Fortunately you can email email@example.com and they might help, though that experience left me feeling dumb and thinking I'm the only one with installation issues. Here are some of the issues I've had with my setup: - The E55 lid is hard to close securely unless the case is empty - I often find screws in my E55 case and I have to figure out where to return them. A few of the screws freewheel, which makes them ineffective. - The E96B Topcase Rack bolts also came loose so I used locktight. Same with the back rest bolts. - The E112 Stop Light Kit does not include flashers, turn signals, running lights, it only has brake lights. - The electrical contacts on the E112 Stop Light Kit don't make good contact between the E55 case and lid so my brake lights flicker, or they don't work at all if there's anything in the case. I'm looking into Admore's E55 Top Case - LED Kit (TS) as a replacement, since it has all of the indicators, is much brighter, and it doesn't depend on a secure lid connection. - The E55 case has growing fractures where the rack connects, but the heaviest thing I've mounted on the rack is my yoga mat. By the time you're done adding all the accessories you may invest $700+ (just for a trunk!), you'll have to install the upgrades yourself, using poor documentation. This is a very expensive case to be having so many issues. The rack itself looks good and is otherwise fairly sturdy and attractive, and I won't give it up until I can find something better.

Great box for Yamaha tenere bought to replace factory Yamaha box that was damaged in accident (Yamaha box is all plastic) givi box is all aluminum accept for corners. the mounting plate is plastic but I did find out after purchasing givi offers an all aluminum mounting plate also if I have to purchase again I would opt for that other than that happy for now it is little bigger than Yamaha box and it still lets u open Yamaha side cases without issues and the best part with givi even if u trade bikes u take your case with u just buy new mounting plate great job Givi.

According to GIVI website the dimensions for this item would be 31.5"H x 28.3"W.

I've owned several GIVI mounting plates. All of them have worked perfectly. I ended up getting the wrong year plate mounting hardware. I just purchased replacement hardware from Home Depot. So, double check your product model number when ordering. In this case it was an error on GIVI's part.

Using it on a OEM Honda ST1300 Tail Trunk. Stiff little rack , found that out trying to get all 4 mounts to hit a flat table evenly , one was off 1/8" . Wish the silver finish was more durable chrome. I reinforced the bolt holes with epoxied sheet metal inside to prevent top lid cracks. Otherwise it should work fine.
