    Got me a used top case in da mail today...anybody got an installed pic or can help with how it is supposed to mount? I got it on the bike, but am not sure I did it the way it was intended.

    TIA

    Did it come with the special mounting bracket you need? Part #60012027350.

    Like this. Then there's a plastic piece that attaches to the mounting bracket under the actual top case.

    Just get a nicely sized metal plate that matches the size of the top case's bottom and match up the holes accordingly. No big thang ...unless the bottom isn't flat and doesn't sit flat on the plate.

    Should'a bought a pizza box.
