The basic problem with the Vulcan...most top boxes open toward the front of the bike, so the "sissy bar" on the seat prevents it from opening if it's pushed back.
I've seen cases that don't do this, but almost all do. Building up something to make it sit higher would help, but I think the best solution is to trash the stock seat for something else.
Just finding a suitable box with a shallow lid like this would work:
Or a ice chest with a latched top. I had a bike with a milk crate on the back for awhile. A few small bungee cords to help hold stuff in.
You could also build a box with a lid if you have the tools.....

|mmart||That is priceless, I can’t talk because I wasn’t too far off from that when my case broke lol. I was about 60 miles from home. I had a cargo net and bungee cords holding the damn thing on. My buddy stayed about 30 yds behind me on the way back to make sure he wouldn’t get wiped out if it decided to jettison along the way|

I bought this one from JC Whitney for $45:
Been using it for the last 8 years, no problems. Just bought some "U" bolts and mounted the mounting plate to the luggage rack, which is pretty much the same design as the Vulcan one.
