V-STROM 1000 - 14

The SHAD Top Master fitting allows mounting a top case onto the motorcycle. It is a fitting specifically designed por each motorcycle model, taking into account its features. The result is a high quality product, comfortable, safe, and easy to assemble and disassemble.
To mount the top case onto the bike it is necessary to add this kit to the plate included in the SHAD case.

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.
