Done, the GIVI is rated at 22#. Mine is now mounted and supporting a 3 gallon fuel cell.voxmagna said:Checkout the Givi rear rack and top box mount. Can't remember the figures, but it takes more load than the stock rack due to steel supports which bolt back to the frame.
I agree, it's always better to guestimate on the high side, and I'll wager GIVI lists their weight recommendation on the low side. No one here would ever load anything over the suggested capacity, right?!voxmagna said:Rule of thumb Bob, unless liquids are heavy oils, I use water, 1 Imp. gallon weighs approx 10lb. When you just bought that new water tank to put in your roof, your neighbor wants fun on a water bed, or the nutter next door fancies a 250 Imp. gallon hot tub in their bedroom, it pays to be helpful with approximations!
