Top Case

I have the Kawasaki hard bags mounted on my Versys. I see some with a top case mounted with side bags. How or where do i find the top case mount for mine. I want the top and side cases on at the same time.

The Givi top rack should work, from Sporttour.com or Twistedthrottle.com

I guess I am confused...I can't seem to find a "rack" at those websites. This is the first time I have ever added a rear trunk to a bike. I am guessing you need to pieces...A mounting rack that attaches to the frame/bike and then a trunk with a mounting plate. I think I have found a trunk I want at JC Whitney--it comes with the mounting plate, but I can't find the rack. Is that what that piece is called--"a mounting rack?" Does anyone know who makes one? Does JC Whitney offer one for the Versys? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have been using the FZ447 with the JCWhitney and it works just fine. Some day I may get one of those fine Givi cases to match the rack - then again maybe not.
