Will Gen 1 2005 top case fit Gen 2 ?

Can not seem to find info in search. Have a 2005 top case that another member wants to purchase but not sure if it will bolt on Gen 2. Any help appreciated.

IIRC, the factory top cases are all Givi. On a Gen 2, the other member will want to install a Givi SR357 rack to properly support the top case. If they are a belt-and-suspenders sort of person, they will also want to install a Garauld Stiffy.

Regularly overloaded Gen 1 bikes running on rougher roads had a tendency to break the rear subframe. The Givi SR357 rack greatly reduces that chance on Gen 2&3 bikes. A Stiffy will hold the pieces together if the subframe does break.

So your saying the 05 gen 1 case will bolt on the 06 but should have the SR357 support. It is on OEM case. Thanks.

The SR357 frame has nothing to attach a case directly to. The frame is the frame. For GIVI trunks there's an adapter plate to attach so a trunk can be mounted. I have no idea about using the the SR357 with OE trunks. I certainly could be wrong but AFAIK if you want to mount an OE trunk then you will have to purchase the OE mount plate for it. I've never seen anyone attempt to mount an OE trunk on a GIVI plate and I have no idea if it works or not.

Perhaps if you attach a picture of the tail of your bike we can help more.

Perfect! You're set for an OE topcase. The blue thing mounts like in the second pic and the black plate mounts on top of it. The OE topcase slides in and snaps onto the black piece.

The thing now to research is called a stiffy kit. It helps support the butt end of the fender from breaking off. I used one for a long time when I used the OE top case. Easy to install, good stuff. https://www.fjrowners.com/forums/24-...y-catalog.html
