Hi All,

Wondering if anyone has modified a Shad or similar top case to mount onto the OEM luggage rack on a Vulcan EN500 LTD? The rack is so narrow that the mounting plate I received with the top case doesn't have corresponding holes that will allow the screws to mate with the mounting hardware underneath.

I already had to remove the back rest on my bike, which is fine.

Thinking I might have to drill through the provided "universal" top case mounting plate, but I'm worried about it being a weak connection, since it will just be thin plastic vs. the reinforced "holes" it's built with.

Any ideas?
