    After Market Top Cases

    Looking for information, pictures and mounting plate pictures for none Ducati top case applications.   Any pictures and input on mounting hardware or plates would be very much appreciated.   Trying to figure out what to get for top case.  Do not like the look of the Ducati top case.  However I must say the Ducati one works great.  Its very large holds two helmets and then some.  Can fit an overnight bag inside. 
    I am looking for something a little smaller. 
    Thanks for any help.

    I bought a piece of aluminium 3mm plate of ebay (8.00) and then made some brackets to clamp onto the back rack, fitted a top case that I got of ebay which cost 33.00. It also holds 2 helmets and I find it to be a good job

    Very cool.
    Thanks for sharing.  Your set up is using a little of the passenger seating area.  So I need to put mine further back as my wife will be onboard at times. 
    But doable.   
    Thanks

    The reason I have mine forward that far is for. Centre of gravity. It is no problem at all to move it back if I need. To do so for the passenger. Because it is just a matter of. Moving the plate back. And boring new Holes. Cheap as chips

    All the ones further back have support arms mounting under the seat, extending back beyond the grab rails. 
    So I am trying to figure out the support arms.

    Just get a length of bar and bend it to suit. Wield a couple of flanges to fit to screws to the  undertray
