Have you given any thought on putting a luggage rack on top?

I've been considering the Givi one (may need spacers to make it work), or a Honda HL-08L42-MCA-100. There are some Harley racks that look like they'd work as well.




I've had the SHAD rack on order for a couple of months and just got a message a few days ago indicating that they're back in stock. Hopefully it will show up soon.

Interesting. I had discounted the idea of the Shad rack because I'd heard that it wasn't available for purchase in the US (despite being on the Shad web site).

I don't want a rack, but curiosity (and Google) led me this: https://www.motardinn.com/motorcycle-equ...mp;gclsrc=aw.ds

Fits SH50 SH49 SH48 SH45

~$77.00, shipped to Ohio via USPS, arriving December 20-26.



Shad has very good products, but their US distribution needs improvement.

I got word today that mine is being shipped. They were on backorder for some time . . . three months or so.

It appears that originally the Shad light kits were part of the case lid, but now are part of the mounting bracket... to eliminate wiring issues taking on/off I presume. IS this correct?

Other way around, as I recall. Shad originally offered the D0B50KL led brake light on the mounting plate. The Admore lid mount kit with brake and turn signals has only been available for a couple years. Not sure it makes a difference which came first as long as there is choice.

Not sure of the history, but it appears that both options are currently available on the SHAD website.

Both are listed, but if you click on the lid style it says no longer available or something to that effect...

Admore still offers the lid lights, and Google shows other retailers.

Though I'm not sure how well it will get along with BMW's unconventional brake lights.

I just finished installing the ADMORE light kit to my Givi top case. Took the power and brake light function from the harness under the back seat on 2016 RT. Works great with no fault code.
