Givi F1000 Universal Monorack
Written by tradewinds1964 on 2/4/2012 at 04:28 am

Thanks Douglas and forgive my ignorance, but I'm not sure of the difference
between the Corbin and Honda backrest for passenger. I do know that my passenger
backrest was similar to the drivers backrest and was connected to 2 vertical
supports that wrapped around the pillion seat. However, the Ukranian rack has
spacers that go between the support and the frame of the bike where the bolts
connect it. So there really isn't enough space for the original hand grab rails.
The rails of the rack are still comfortable enough for the passenger to hold on
and perfect for bungees when travelling to PC800 meets.

And Goldwing Fred, I was informed that moving or flashing blue lights on the
front are the illegal form. My lights are stationary on the front, sides under
the footpegs and rear on either side of the trunk. I have only had 1 cop stop me
and I think he was bored because he called for backup. So I had 3 cop cars
around my bike while they checked my license. Then the verdict was, turn them
off, which I have a switch for. So for the many months and the many miles and
many PC800 meets, I have had no problems. But you are right, they are kinda
sensitive about blue lights.

Can someone tell me if the grab handles are usable with the Givi F1000 rack?

    Yep. Pretty much got to have them to get the PC up on it's center stand anyway. --- In ipcrc@yahoogroups.com, "dudle

    My Givi rack makes the front 2/3rds unusable as grab handles. The back 1/3 is still functional. Don't know if it's a F1000. (Was on the bike when I bought it.) --- In

    I don't have one, but the pics I've seen sure didn't look like it. That's why I wound up getting the Ukrainian rack. -- Akien MacIain I engage in non-standard deviation with completely irrational numbers On Sat, Jan 21,

          Just wanted to throw this out there for anybody wondering. This is the "famous" Ukranian rack mounted on my Scotia. It is an awesome and a very strong rack. Fits tight, so a little elbow grease will be needed to install, but not imp

            Ting, I must compliment you on your rack and trunk setup. That looks REALLY nice. Out of curiosity, does the Hondaline (or is that a Corbin?) passenger backrest fit when the rack is installed? Cheers! Douglas --- In

            Ting, One problem is that blue is not legal and will get ,you stopped by the police. Fred --- In ipcrc@yahoogroups.

                Ting, You are lucky they didn't give you a ticket. I have seen others get stopped but they let them go with a warning and told them to not use them and take them off. Fred --- In
