E52 Givi on a 2007 K12GT

Just to make sure, I'm looking at putting an E52 Givi on my 2007 K12GT. Does this fit? I know people have done this with earlier GTs, but I just want to make sure the changes in 2006 don't impact this.

Also, do I need to buy any special mounting Hw?

Tnx.

I installed the Givi E52 top case with light kit on my 07 GT last month. Here is the link to the forum where I specified the parts I purchased. The RT and GT have the same rack so the Givi E193 top case mount that is made for the BMW R1200RT, its a universal rack and it fits the 07 GT.

The break light kit works great and I would highly recommend it. I connected the wires to the break light as indicated on the instructions.

Only issue I had is the morons at Givi told me the blue top case is the same color as the BMW 07 blue. It is not the same color. I wish I had the non-painted black top case.

Here is the link:

Thanks Kemmons. I appreciate the help.

Color is the one issue I have. I've got the dark graphite model, so I think the silver will look good. Matching colors on my computer screen, the matte black looks like it'll match okay, but I just don't believe it. I wish there was a good way to check colors.

I didn't get the light kit. I mounted on an FJR and installed LEDs
I wired to the brake circuit and they really light up!
I found that the GIVI case,in traffic, blocked the tail light
for SUV drivers in traffic so lighting it is a must. IMHO.
Great roomy case and I added an LED taplight/velcro so it lights up
inside like my LT.
