Amen to that brother , stick with the GIVI stuff . The cheap stuff is cheap for a reason .

I can agree with you on that, But I've got the Bestem TBox 929 because it's "good enough for me".

I have a Bestem 929 on the way and it's pretty inexpensive.

I bought one new on line (Bestem) because a fellow inmate spoke highly of them . I installed it , took it for a ride around the condo complex then immediately removed it . If I remember correctly , it's now on the back of the camo Silverwing I gave to my son to drive for awhile . It rattled like crazy on the slightest little bump in the road , and here in Michigan we have a LOT of bumps in our roads . All that said I've had good experiences with GIVI and SHAD luggage . Do I think this stuff is too expensive , sure I do . But in the long run comparatively speaking it's not . If you take good care of your GIVI or SHAD luggage you can sell it for a pretty good price , so over time it is not all that expensive , again comparatively speaking . About 8 or 10 months out of the year I use my bikes for every thing and the cars and the trucks sit 99% of the time , so I need a lot of luggage . So it depends in the end how much you actually need and use it ?

I just installed the Bestem 929, their biggest, onto my 2014 Suzuki Burgman. It went well. Just added a few washers above the back spacers to fill the gap. Once I ride for a few weeks, I will modify the tupperware to fit back into place. I have no opinion, other than the instructions are very general and skimpy. Most YouTube data is out of date and does not address specifics of the 2014. Bolts holes are not perfectly lined up, and came up with some extra pieces (a couple of brass looking channel rails about 12 inches long x 1.5 inches wide and some bolts). I am guessing this is a modification for another model. For the price, it will do for around town. The thickness of the walls of the case are obviously thin compared to much higher priced units. Since it is easily removable, I will only attach when I absolutely need it to cut down on sun exposure, which would make it brittle and weak.

I agree with Reaper, above, I think it will rattle a lot. With all bolts tight, it still has some play. I will take the first test run tomorrow and re-post. It can be made to wobble by hand. Bumps and gusts should make it rock and roll. You get what you pay for. $145 vs over $300 or more.

This is my 2007 , set up like this cost $1,000.00 U.S. . Did I like paying a grand ? Not really but as crazy as this may sound , it's worth every penny

No regrets whatever .

I SEE what your problem was. When you go to lock the Besteem 929 Box onto the mounting plate, just slip a sheet of that thin syrofoam type packing stuff or small bubble wrap under the box, so that it fits tight when you lock it down. That will keep it from rattling, Also put some stuff in it. Mine is full with 2 leather jackets, 2 airhawk seats, 1 helmet, glasses, and a lot of other miscellaneous stuff. My box weighs about 30 pounds.
I had this box on the back of my 400 for 2 years with no problem. Now I've put that same box on the back of my 650, still no problem.
NO RATTLE AT ALL. ITS A GOOD BOX. Bestem 929.
Cheers!

Actually I did the foam thing when I stuck it on the camo Silverwing , it still rattled but not as bad . But if it's working for you or any one who doesn't care to spend a lot of money on GIVI stuff , good for them . All that said the vast majority of riders would rather go the $100.00 Bestem route , than the $1,000.00 GIVI route like I did . I've used the same luggage on several of my Burgmans , before I sell them I take the accessories off and put them on the next one . For me the stock bike is just half the deal , the other half is the luggage , the GIVI windshield , the modified foam and Utopia back rest seat , the handlebar risers , the air hawk cushion ,and the Break-Away throttle lock . When I ride a stock 650 Burgman without all my accessories , truthfully I can't wait to get off of it . All the accessories listed above cost about $1,800.00 , but for me it makes the bike complete and a real joy to ride .
