Question for anyone with a givi trunk rack on their 919

Am I absolutely required to use the passenger hold bar to mount the rack system? Or can I attach it without it?

Well, that is the main attachment spot. It comes with longer bolts and spacers to work with the handle on there. You pobably have to get creative to attach it using those holes with no handle; maybe re-use the stock bolts with some sort of pad underneath. The Givi bracket and the rear cowl might not match up very well otherwise.

I cut the grab rail off and filed back the remains so the the rack fitted. Was easy and looks good. On a side note I have that rack for sale but shipping will be killer.

--I appreciate that a lot.

Do you happen to know what size bolts I would use to bolt down that handle? I have it I just don't have the hardware for it

Can you show us some photos of your design to get some ideas? Also what's your price for it +shipping?

Mine uses the rear grab bar mounts. I'm not sure how you could mount it otherwise.
