If you are considering, for example, the Givi Trekker cases, you'll need the E528 plate for the top case, and the PL532 racks for the side cases. Most other Givi/Kappa cases use the same monokey mounting arrangement, as do many other brands. It's not the strongest or best, but it's common enough that parts and variations are easy to come by.
When you get around to installing them (my six-year old daughter did most of the install on mine) follow the instructions on the Twisted Throttle website, particularly about turning the top case plate mounts backwards to buy a little more passenger space. And leave everything a little loose until all the bolts are started - it takes a little body language to get all the holes to line up.
