Termites got at the original platform.

shawmutt E52 here, with the added brake lights. I don't have to look at it while I'm riding, so I couldn't tell ya whether it "fits" or not . My work buddies say it looks like a spaceship landed on my bike :lol:

Colin Keith, I have one of those top cases only I use it on my quad.
I don't seem to have the fancy mounting rack though. Will have to look in my scrap wood pile to see if I accidentally threw away the parts

water warrior Chris, I have the 46 on top and 43's on the sides. The molds for the side bags are terrible. They look cheap and don't even appear to seal properly when closed although they actually do seal somehow. The 42's do look better apparently. The signals have to be relocated( smaller one are supplied with the side bags). The mounting system for the sides are a joke IMHO. There is a heavy duty metal bar that goes across the tail section but under the factory rack. This is the reason for a signal location change. Had to change wiring, modify the cross piece and a bit to the rack itself. Do it again ?? NEVER. Just order Givi and be happy.

i remember you also said the shad 37 side cases were not so great , they look nice , is it the the bags that are not good or the goofy mounting racks. i say goofy as you have to relocate the turn signals, i was planing on shad 42 for side cases , they are 177 each . another thought was too cut the left side case mount as it hangs out so far. reweld it , then run a 42 litre on the left side and a 36 on the right . reduceing the width of the bike when bags are on . ive never had side bags , is the width of the bike something you notice ?, as we dont lane split here im sure its not an issue

Brian Patterstrom For economy, I added a Bestem 46-litre top hard case on my Wee - $80 shipped. More than enough for my needs - has a tail light built-in that needs to be wired up and includes the rack plate to mount it. Holds my openface helmet with gloves, down vest, and other items.

shad 46

im looking at the shad 46 . it costs $ 261 and comes with the mounting plate . it has the color match lid option , and you can add back rest and tail lights as well . a givi 46 costs $100 more and then another $180 for the mounting plate . the shad 50 comes with the tail light and backrest included , i think i will have too go see them in person too make up my mind .
