What rear rack?

Hi guys,
need some advice.
I have the PLR450 side racks for my Kappa 33l panniers.
I have a Kappa K42N top box with the attached K628 mounting plate
I need to know what rack will work with the PLR450 side racks and my preference would be to fit the top box I have. If there is no other way I will buy a different top box and sell my current one.
Thanks for your time.
BTW as much as I like KTMduels rack the shipping is too expensive to send to Australia so it's out.

If anyone is interested I ended up going with the GIVI 451FZ rack just had to buy the M6M plate to fit my Kappa 42N top box.

BTW thanks Jeff for your suggestion, I did look into the Palmer rack, their shipping rates are very cheap.

I have the Givi rack. Only problem with it is that it is the heaviest option and the bolts rust.

If I was to do it again a would go for a light weight aluminum rack like the SW-Motech, that replaces the rear grab handles as well, as these are heavy too, and does not rust.

Twisted Throttle states that you can use the SW Motech side rack OR the SW Motech rear rack BUT not both at the same time. So you might be able to with the Givi....OR not.

Or was that look THEN leap?
