OEM Hard case mounting alternatives

Does anyone have a recommendation on mounting OEM adventure side cases to a 2012 wee? The standard Suzuki mounting brackets are way too wide.
I purchased a set of these side cases on eBay but not sure if there are alternative mounting brackets that are not so wide.

Thanks,

Dino

I've racked my brain trying to find a way to make the Adv. cases narrower with no luck. I don't think there are any other racks that will work. If you were really good at metal fabricating you might be able to alter the OEM racks so they fit a little tighter to the bike but there's only about an inch of room on each side to work with before the bags are up against the bike and two inches narrower overall wouldn't make that much of a difference plus it would be a lot of work.
