I have a SHAD 40 mounted to my Cyclerack. However, my Cyclerack was ordered with the back "hump" to be horizontal rather than in the standard vertical orientation. I ordered the rack that way specifically so I could mount a top box like the SHAD.
I didn't need to modify the mounting plate or Cyclerack. All I had to do was buy a couple of bolts that were longer than those that came with the SHAD mounting kit.
For backing, I used a 1.0 inch thick piece of black HDPE Marine Building Material (King StarBoard®) that I cut two hemicylindrical slots in. This way I did not have to cut, drill, scratch or in any way bother the Cyclerack.
The HDPE piece has the added advantage that it can also be used to mount other flat-bottomed top cases.
That is the good news.
The not-so-good news is that it will be tough to get enough room to mount the SHAD case on a Cyclerack that has a vertical hump. MAYBE, if you move the case towards the seat farther than I did you MIGHT be able to make it. However, I didn't want to do that. I wanted to leave room for swinging my foot over the seat without hitting the case. I also wanted to be able to remove the seat without taking off the top case.
Below are two pictures of the SHAD mounting plate in place. (There are 2 plastic cover plates that go over the areas on the left and right. I removed them so you could see the 6 bolts).
If you have more questions, just ask. I will be glad to help if I can.
You can also look at what TdubOhio did for his top case. He shows how you could solve your hump problem and he shows another way to mount a similar top case made by Givi... in posts #30 and #31 of this thread. He did a great job. Post #36 shows another option.
In May of 2018 I enquired to Precision Motorcycle Racks to see if they had thought of making one for the TW. Got a quick reply that it was next on the list...
Behold, this morning I received an email that it was on the web store.
And surprise, there are side racks too...
So heres the position Im in.

When I first put on the kit from jet kit from procycle, I was doing the naked bike thing. I had just installed a slip on muffler(fmf), k&n type cone filter, and breather filter. As well as 2.5 out on the fuel/air screw. The kit came with a new needle, 1 pilot jet, several main jet sizes, and...
I've wanted a round headlight forever. I just like the look of it. Could never find the right parts to do it. Found a post the TW200 World group on Facebook that linked parts. Credit to Nick Vandermaas.
