I take it you have the benelli accessory pdf off the benelli website

On page 63 they show a top box on a rack but they dont sell a rack only the pannier rack

Weird eh!!!

i was wanting a pannier rack like that one for my TnT but it does not fit either

Its made by Givi but theres no mention on there site

Maybe the best course of action is to contact givi direct as its likely to be there rack in the pic

In 'My MOTORCYCLE' there is no benelli listed

but in mono racks there is a universal rack which might be a starting point

lots of meccano bits to find mountings on your bike

ok rang givi no info gleaned from them ,so searched ebay italy souced the side bars and the topbox rack ,purchased ,arrived fitted , then ebay the boxes and found bought and fitted ,total time took from sourcing to fitting 10 days .moto gb 3 weeks to send rack then sent wrong one ,what a suprise .
Must say when all fitted bike looks like a honda/bmw booring but well handy when touring or shopping in central london .

came from cavendon motors italy , go ebay italy type in benelli trek parts shoud come up . the rack listed is for hepco but they do one for givi just specify the top box rack is not listed with the side bars but they have them , email or call them but you need to speak italian to converse as there english is limited but will say brilliant honest dealer they will add approx 35 euro for uk delivery but sure if angus passing he will pick up 4 u .

Its good to know that Cavendon do pannier rails with Givi fittings. It means I can keep the boxes from my wing rack and just get new rails.
Might try making my wing rack fit first though.

@richardm:

The top box rack..... is it a single item or is it connected to the side panniers? I mean, can I mount it separately from the side panniers or not? Sorry for my bad english.

Greetings
Tostan
