I have a Givi E35 Traffic (monokey) top case on a Givi E200 base plate. Others will tell you that Givi is way too expensive and go with something else. In my defense, the Givi I'm using now came with another one of my bikes (Honda TransAlp). I had to make a custom rear rack to support it. There are some top cases that are too small to store your helmet. So, know the general dimensions of your helmet if you shop on-line. Most manufacturers will state that a full-face helmet will fit (or not).

I put this EMGO top case on my Super 8. I got it from the scooter dealer for $60 although I believe retail is $75. I your scooter has a rear rack and you have a drill then this top case is a no brainer to install. My Fulmer modular helmet just fits.

that case looks rlly good. i looked up some reviews and many people said the plastic mounting base plate cracks while riding and the top case falls off. How has yours held up?

No problems in 2000 miles. If you don't trust the plastic mounting plate it comes with a couple of metal bars that could be used to reinforce it.

I don't know how big the rack on your super 9 is but unless it is fairly large, I would use the metal brackets that come with the Emgo to make the mount more sturdy. Then you won't have to worry about it breaking. Another option is to get a metal plate and mount it under the plastic rack.

yeah im thinking the the metal sheet underneath is the way to go. this is what the rack looks like. I think i could dril into the rack and run the bolts through the rack if the holes line up. what do you think?

I would probably mount a metal plate using the bolts that hold the rack in place, or some longer bolts with the same thread. The plastic mounting plate has a bunch of holes and will be easy to mount to the metal plate.

I think that the shell on my Fulmer is larger than most since it has an internal sun visor. It barely fits in a Givi E46 top case. The dealer said that normaly 2 full face helmets will fit in the E46. Here's some pics:
