I've installed the ADMORE to my Shad-50, no problems.

@Mike, did your Shad rack arrive? What do you think of it?

I just got an email indicating g it shipped yesterday. While I like my case, I get the feeling that Shad USA has some work to do, to get their act together.

Yes, it arrived. Easy installation. It's not particularly large, though it integrates well with the case's design. It comes with a template specific to the case that permits you to accurately position the holes you must drill. After that, it's essentially washers and screws.

It's solid and fits well, but as I mentioned not all that big. I don't see much of an advantage over sourcing a rack elsewhere, except maybe aesthetically. I'll note again that this was ordered months ago. Shad USA doesn't seem to have their retail act together in this country.

How do the LEDs attach to the case? Are they just stuck on, do they replace the lenses or do they mount from the inside of the case?
I have the SHAD SH50 top case.

Installation instructions follow from Admore. I have not added these to my SH50...yet.

Took only a couple hours and some of that was because I also have dealer installed hyperlights and needed too sort that out. Pretty easy in general.

Mike - does the shad top case remove easily from the bike? The factory topcase is not traditionally removable with power locks, IIRC. That is enough to prompt me to seek an alternative. I'm not sure if the factory non-power lock version removes easily.

Yep, it's a matter of twisting the key and popping the handle. Pops right off, but is very secure when locked in place.
