My stock 38L top case fell off going down the freeway, lucky no one got hurt. Went back to recover it and it was gone. Dang. Somebody took it before I could get back to it. 
So, here's the question;  I'm thinking going GIVI 48l Dolomite top case. will my existing moto guzzi top case brackets take a SW MOTECH monokey adapter plate? looking for a more economical solution. The moto guzzi stock case is too expensive and too small.
Thanks

take it Stelvio has a chrome tube type rack then? ...don't know what you would call a W clip in the USA but when Givi produced the oem  luggage that is how the Cali 3 hat the top box fitted the clips are heavy duty not likely to bend or break they are easy to fit. I have a 76 V1000 with Givi luggage fitted and the 1100 EV that has Hepco side boxes but a Givi top box ...the Hepco are awful boxes smaller than the 45 litre Givi only just take a helmet and the Hepco ones leak .....

It won't fit without a bit of fiddling. You may have to make up some sort of adapter plate.

Sounds like you are already sorted but let me know if not as I have one that I am thinking of selling . Its in the UK so postage has to be considered but I was thinking of around £125 for the box on its own. With key of course.

Thanks, but figured it out... I preferred a larger top case anyways.

I did the same with the Norge, put a Givi plate on the Norge rack, but removed the Guzzi top plate, used a bit of 1/8th sheet alloy to make an adapter to fit the Givi plate.
