My set-up, i really appreciate the extra space and low profile of the Pelican 1300 case, i use it to keep my tools, some duc tape and elastic rope to tie stuff on the bike if needed.
It also comes in handy to store some groceries if the need occurs!

No pics but on my G650GS I made the rear top plate from 1/8" alu sheet (jig saw/band saw) as previously shown by others,mtd via rd alu bar stock spacers(see Caribou pics) drilled & mtd to oem holes on bike. This model requires a plate cutout for removal of seat latch access panel via ign key.
I then mtd pelican case using SS 6mm carriage bolts ( I have a lifetime supply of these via ebay bag purchase!) up through plate with rubber vibration bumpers(ebay for small quantities)under case, with inside of case having fender washers & plastic knobs from Grainger for retention/removal.
My setup works well but could be improved with some properly sized Dzus or other speed fasteners-if your too lazy to turn the knobs. Make certain the knobs don't take up your precious storage space nor provided an abrasion point for case contents. I made my own key lock set ups for all 3 cases using Zoro tools(ebay) key lock sets. Takes time which I've got & saves money which I don't have much of... On my top case I drilled two small strategic holes in a plastic web support on the cases and using two pelican oem holes my bungee net hooks can attach in 4 spots with no need for buying any hardware for additional "pile on" carrying capacity. Finishing touch was some Solas tape from Ebay-brighter than some of the other tapes.
ADV stickers are the crowning touch!
