Do you guys remove the stock rubber pad and mount top cases with it removed? I want to attach a Pelican case, just not sure wheher to leave it on or off. It seems like pulling it off the rack, may ruin the ability to re-attach. And, maybe the pad would keep things quieter.

Thanks,

it is easy to remove and reattach later. use a little dish soap to lube the rubber inserts and pull it off.

What Yak said; comes off easily with dish soap and a little push from the underside.

If you are installing a Givi monokey mounting plate ( E528 ), I believe you must remove the rubber pad as the mounting brackets use the same holes that hold the rubber pad. I don't know about the Givi monolocks or other brands of top cases.

I removed the pad before I installed my Pelican (clone) case. I used some of the U-shapped wall brackets from Home Depot to make a standoff so that I could move the case back a few inches to give some additional space on the pillion. Worked very well.

I went this route, and the case seems good and solid.
Thanks,

A Caribou top case mount plate requires removal of the rubber pad.
