The SW-MOTECH ALU-RACK is a clean looking, stand-alone base system that allows Quick-Release fitment of TraX, Givi and other Topcases, SW-MOTECH luggage racks, or SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Quick-Lock Tankbags to keep your motorcycle as versatile as you are.
ALU-RACK Topracks are a sturdy and elegant solution for mounting your topcase. Constructed from high-strength, lightweight aluminum for durability, they are bike-specific and shaped to accentuate the lines of your motorcycle. Three mounting points for Quick-Lock fasteners in the center of the ALU-RACK allow attachment of removable adapters to fit most Topcases, an SW-MOTECH Quick-Release Soft Luggage Carrier, or an SW-MOTECH ALU-RACK QUICK-LOCK Tankring for fitting flat-bottom SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Tankbags such as the QUICK-LOCK EVO Sport Tankbag or the QUICK-LOCK EVO Daypack Tankbag.
Adapter plates are available to fit the following Topcases
- Givi Monolock
- Givi Monokey
- TraX ALU-BOX
- Shad SH26, SH29, SH32, SH33, SH37, SH40, SH42, SH45 & SH46 (not SH48, SH49 or SH50)

Has to be loose fitted on bike or you'll have a hard time putting it together. (Posted on 11/6/2015)

That being said I DID get it installed and once it was on, it's fantastic! The finish is very nice, the mount is solid, and it follows the lines of the bike much better than the factory Yamaha tail rack. It has a lower profile and the stock tail light / turn signal mount looks "right" on the bike now.
My Bestem TopBox mounted up quite easily. I drilled matching holes in the Bestem mounting plate to line up with the SW-Motech stock 3 holes and it looks great. Would have given 5 stars if not for the difficult initial fit. (Posted on 8/27/2014)
