Is it possible to combine Givi and Sw Motech racks?

Well, today I had to repair (weld) the rear frame because the Sw-Motech Alu-Rack put too much stress on it and it started to crack and bend. I noticed the case was getting a bit wobbly but I just thought I was going crazy.

This is the second time this happens. The first time I welded it, I put some reinforcements. I guess they worked well because now it broke at a different place.

I was wondering if someone tried to use the Givi top case brackets with the Sw-Motech quick attach side case racks?

I do have both at home and will probably test-fit them in the near future but I was just wondering if this is a viable setup.

Thanks.

A little update.


It seems that it could be possible to combine both setups.


I put the Givi top case rack and was able to attach 2 of the 3 mounting holes of the SW Motech racks. I'll need to relocate the license plate bracket attachment and move it up a little bit. This should work without problem.


I do have another problem. The Givi rack interferes with the sw-motech turn signal relocation bracket. I could duplicate the Givi brackets or I might just remove it completely. I have Watsen Design LED turn signals that would work fine with the stock location, even with the side cases in place. The side cases might block the turn signals a bit but this could just mean I'll get the "admore" lights for my cases.
