Ahhhhh...I think I see now, InsuredDisaster...you were suggesting I use that system along with the Kawasaki luggage rack...guess that might work.
Unfortunate that the Kawasaki rack is so small, though....looks like it's much narrower and shorter than the Givi mounting plate.
The 5 lb load limit doesn't concern me too much unless the Vulcan's luggage rack mounting system is REALLY flimsy (I've not seen it). There is a 5 lb limit on the standard luggage rack on my Concours as well, and that is a sturdy, fiber-reinforced plastic rack mounted directly over the metal fender/frame support. My Givi topcase has resided there, and the case and contents weigh significantly more than 5 lbs.
Any more ideas out there?
