If you ever rip off one of the bumpers like i did. You can get them here just wait till you order enough stuff to get free shipping. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/givi-z126-rubber-bumper-set-for-monokey-and-monolock-top-plates    .While i was waiting for my order i just got some liquid gorilla glue and glued the bumper to the plate. Has worked great for over a year now. But i'll keep the spares for just in case....

UpDate:
So, after waiting for 2 months, my top case was delivered. What I received was a black plastic shell...
No lock cylinder. No mounting base. No backrest pad. No color panel or trim set...  :187:
I called the parts guy I ordered it from. "He's off today". Talked to a different parts guy. "Oh, you need to order those parts separately."  :211: :125:
So I told him how "disappointed" I am.
Anyway, I have all those parts now. I just have to put it together... Got the discount still, but it's costing me a couple hundred dollars more than I was quoted at the beginning of this, and I had to wait two months.
My take-away is:
If you know more about the part you're ordering than the parts guy you are talking to, walk away...

But yeah, the KRQ Top Box is available at this time...

I have one on my bike and if I had it to do again, I would buy aftermarket...I went Kawasaki only because I got a screamming deal on it...in any event, it does not come with the back rest,, nor does it come with the color panels or the mounting plate thats needed... ..all these are separate...when all is  said and done, you could easily spend 500 or more on everything ...but it is a nice piece of hardware....

& that’s why I went with Givi branded one & Phil’s Farkles luggage rack (that replaced the OEM plastic one) with the SW Motech hardware. Got the rack in 3 days. Got the top case & backrest in a week. Done.

On a side note, I’ve added red LED strips under the lenses of the bottom half of the case & the lenses of the top half of the case as additional run/brake lights. Since I also have a GearBrake module installed, when I engine brake or brake, all the lights flash for about 2 seconds before going solid on. “Can you see me now?”

Oh I agree...it never ceases to amaze me how many people lack the skill to do that job they are paid to do...its frustrating to say the least
