Hi Guys, well this is my first attempt at a post, I hope it works and that it will be informative. I bought my Givi E470 at Helmet Head and paid $198 plus shipping. If I am going to use this scooter for regular transportation then I am going to need storage space for shopping and errands. The E 470 has the largest storage space(45liters) with the monolock system(this means that I can take off the whole box with the twist of a key) which is very handy.
The first picture shows that I removed the 3 screws that holds the luggage rack. With the luggage rack free I could install all 4 of the bolt holders without any hindrance.
The second picture is the way I chose to align the Givi Universal Plate on the bottom of the luggage rack. This way worked very well. I had to tighten each bolt and then look at the rack from the side to see if the Universal Plate was still aligned properly with the stock luggage rack. So that when fully assembled and on the scooter the storage box is not leaning and is even.
The third picture is the top of the luggage rack and how I had to drill a large hole in the plastic of the Givi Universal Plate so that
I could screw the luggage rack back onto the scooter. I had to drill it out about 5/8" so that the head of the bolt would drop through and
the socket would fit in to tighten it.
The fourth picture is of the luggage rack installed and bolted in. NOTE that I had to install 4pcs 1/4 thick rubber bumpers(furniture/tabletop)ontop of the stock Givi bumpers so that the storage box did not bounce. I am pointing to the bolt head that I had to drill out the plastic in order to drop it in to the frame.
The fifth picture is the Givi solid top screwed on to finish the look, NOTE the 2 screws are really really small! Now the Givi E470 can be dropped into the monolock system.
