    Centre stand and givi rack

    Hi everyone,

    Just put a deposit down on a 2018 f750gs, the only things I am thinking of adding are a centre stand and need a rack to hold my givi monokey top box. I believe that sw motech do a centre stand, has anyone any experience of fitting this or the bmw one?
    Also I am confused as to which rack I will need.

    Many thanks

    I am in search of a rack for my Monokey case as well....for a 850gs.
    Just call Givi (they are in NC) and they will assist. I got the part numbers from them and will order through 3rd party site.

    Here's their number:

    I've put an sw motech stand on a low suspension brand new F750GS. Not too bad a job, I supported the bike on a stand under the engine as the sidestand  was loose with no problem. The T60 bolt is very very tight. 200nm apparently, it was tough  to move.

    Biggest  bother was getting the left hand plate in position. It has 3 bolts, one of which (#2)  has a bit of play, but you can't get bolt #3 on until bolts #1 and #2 are on and you can't tighten #2 when #3 is on.  You mount that plate a few  times to get it right.

    My stand is a heavy lift up and the rear wheel is 3-4" up on the air,but its solid and stable.
