This question has probably been answered, but I didn't see it so I'm going to fire it off here.
I have a new 2015 FJR1300ES, and I want to use a Givi Maxia E52 Top Case. I've looked at the mounting options and it appears that there is the E228 and the SR357 for options. Since the E228 leaves the painted hand rails I thought that was the way to go, but was concerned about the ability of the bike to support with the stock tail rack. It would appear that I was correct to be concerned. So here is the question: If I get the Stiffy will I need to get the SR357 or can I safely use the E228? If I get the SR357 do I need the Stiffy? Truly I am not overly concerned about the cost, but I am concerned about preventing damage to the frame, and to a smaller degree the aesthetics.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to the answer.
