2010+ Versys 650 & Shad SH42 with SH50 Top Rack Install

Does anyone have the SHAD SH42 side cases installed along with an SH50 top case on their 2010 and up Versys 650?

I just purchased these and am wondering about the installation of the racks. The instructions say to install the side racks first and then the top rack but this doesn't seem to work on my bike: the top rack "rail" hits the mounting "arm" of the side rack; the only way I can get it to work is to mount the top rack first and then the side case on top of that.

Has anyone else experienced this or IF you have it mounted as per the instructions, can you please share a picture of the main mounting point showing both racks installed????

Is your Versys a 2010 or newer model? Its my understanding that the attachment can be different between the pre-2010 models and the newer ones due to the redesign.....

FYI: I had looked at your pictures before I made my purchases - they were partially responsible for my decision to buy Shad!

ah, skimmed over the 2010+ part. Mine is Gen1.
try emailing Bruce at [email protected]. ex V owner, works with/for SHAD and a nice guy. He would be the best person to answer Shad related questions.

Thanks, Pecko. I've dropped him a note. I'll update the thread with anything I found out so other can benefit!
