Topbox that is compatible with sw-motech side mounts?

My girlfriend is in love with my old Versys which is entirely natural but she wants to add a top box to it. Now I had mounted a set of Motech side bags and brackets to the bike a couple years ago and looking at Twisted Throttle it indicates I can't use their top box bracket with their side brackets? That seems weird to me but what can I do, does anyone know of a topbox mount that will work with the EVO sidecarrier mounts?

Thanks guys.

Use a SWMotech ALUrack. put a washer on each bolt of the rear seat pan latch. Works just fine. They just say that so you don't overload the bike with too many accessories. I just helped Kojack (another forum member) with this same issue.

Ah ok. That makes sense. I just didn't want to order one and have it not fit.

This one correct?

Excellent!! I love it when I can ignore special notes, with the possible exception of combining water and electricity. After all, how hard can it be??
