I've had the Shad SH48 for a couple of years on my V2 with the Shad plate. Installed the Admore light kit and really liked it.
Problem is I've sheared the bolts that hold it to the bike frame three times now. The last time it flexed so much that the rear bolts that hold it to the rear rack cracked my tail light.
The case works well as long as you aren't hitting serious pot holes or on very rough roads.
There are other comments on this forum about this issue. I'm not sure it's specific to the Shad - I've read about it happening to other brands as well. I'm guessing it has more to do with the flex in the rear rack on the V2 causing the bolts holding it to the frame to be a pivot point and eventually shearing off.
I've taken it off the bike and am now just using my side cases.
If anyone has a solution, I'd love to hear it.
