I have a monolock topcase from my PCX days but am now looking to fix it to a Forza..
my question is do I need this mounting kit
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Specific-Rea ... SwXoxacE-j

or can I get away with using the cheaper universal kit

I have a 2014 Honda Forza with the Monokey version of the specific rack. Monokey is the heavy duty version of your Monolock case. I have a 55 litre Givi Maxia top case which is really wide but the Forza is a fat ass scooter anyway. And so am I.

You could go with the universal mount but it may interfere with the rear seat opening. It depends on a bunch of things. You would also have to buy 4 metric bolts to thread into the holes in the frame under the removable panel on the Forza rear. You would also have to custom cut some 2 inch spacers to the right length. You need to drill the rear panel for the spacers or some people just leave the panel off. You also may need a re-inforcing metal plate for the universal mount.

The specific mount has all this engineering already done. It is probably stronger also.

If you have to ask this question then I would go for the expensive mount. I did.

My comments only apply to the 300. In Canada we only got the Forza 300. I don't know which one Scottish has.

Well this is the Forza 300 forum, but I guess saying 'a Forza' could mean anything ;)

Thanks for your thorough answer, the more expensive option it is then !

You will have to buy the specific mounting monolock kit for the Forza 300. The monokey kit, which I have, uses the same mounting kit as only the top plate (which the top box attaches to), is different. You may be able to buy the fitting kit separately, without the top plate. Contact a Givi agent and they will tell you if it is available separately from the full kit.
