I went with rack from Webike, only took 4 days from Japan. Very happy with how sturdy rack is. Givi just didn't seem to have the same sturdy build.

Why no top case?

Dynamically the WORST place you can add weight to any motorcycle is high and behind the rear axle.

Where does a top case sit?

Aerodynamically, the WORST place you can add drag to on any motorcycle is high and behind the rear axle.

Where does a top case sit?

So having bought a motorcycle, at least in part, for it's fine handling and high speed abilities you now want to add weight and drag to the WORST place possible? That's your choice ... but … really?

Didn't ask for thoughts on the install. Simply posted for those considering. BTW I rode hard on the mountains with it yesterday and some how managed to keep tires down.

For what it's worth, I have a Kawi Versys 1k, which has the factory top case and side cases (identical to those on the H2). The other day when I was doing suspension setup on both bikes, I noticed how much more rear steel bracing the Versys has compared to the H2.
