Suzuki top box made by "Soft"?

I have a 06 DL1000 that had a Suzuki top box installed on it. It is made by "Soft". Anywho, the question is, I had to take the mount/rack off to install happy-trail hard bags. Does anyone know of a mounting plate I can find so that I can reinstall it on my happy-trail rack? Im considering chopping up the stock one but dont want to unless I have to. Any Ideas?

I cant believe I stumped the whole forum! Never heard this group opinionless before!
BTW, I took the rack to a machine shop and they are making me a plate so I can install that apparently one-off top box by Suzuki.

The latch on the Soft rack is removable with two bolts. Just look underneath and you'll see them. The two posts at the front are also easily removable.

I would simply remove them, drill holes in the HT rack and intall them on that rack. Turn the Soft rack up side down and use it as a template to mark where to drill the holes in the HT rack. You may need to make an extension plate for the latch, but that shouldn't be too difficult.

Nice thing is, with the exception of the holes you drill in the HT rack, either rack should be easily converted back to the way they were before you made the mods.
