    Shad SH59X

    Hi All, Looking for some help with mounting my newly purchased Shad Expandable Top Case for my 2017 RT. I purchase the Shad adapter plate for my "17" RT and even though not real happy with having to drill holes in the OEM rack to mount it, it doesn't seem to line up any of the of the mounting holes in the case mounting plate. Hoping someone has had experience with this installation and can offer some guidance. Thanks. Rick

    There is a plastic cover on the main rack, held on by four small black screws. This covers the holes for aesthetic reason for when the case is not on the bike. Remove those screws and that should solve the mystery. Hope that helps.

    Thx. Yep, covers off but only two holes in that mount seem to line up with the adapter plate.

    If this is the same adapter plate used for the SH-50 case and they haven't changed anything on the 17 vs my 16 RT wrt the rack, then the two holes should line up on each side (as shown in the attached picture). You only have to drill through the rack cover (I know, it's not a cheap part even if it's only a "cover") and once you've done that and mounted the case, you don't really notice it anymore. I've also included a picture of the top case mounted to the bike from the side if that helps any.

    I had the same issue but it does fit. It goes further rearward than you would expect. You need to use the little red spacers too. Hopefully this picture will help. I had to get some longer screws used to mount the rear portion of the bottom plate. Wonder if they have fixed that problem.

    Had the same issue with the rear screws (and possibly even the front adapter plate screws) as well. I thought the problem was with the adapter plate though. Indeed fitting the case adapter is also tricky to say the least ... there is really only one way to get all four holes aligned and it does sit further back than you might think but in the end, it's comfortable for the pillion rider and doesn't push them forward.
