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)

I used it this summer on my holiday in France. It worked perfect and I really liked the feature that I could just "click" off the rack when we arrived to our destination.
Dimensions of Alu-Rack's flat surface:
- 5.5" long front-to-back
- 7.0" wide at front of rack
- 3.5" wide at rear of rack

The round spacers need to be filed down in order to fit, I suggest assembling everything "hand tight" first, then LOCTITE EVERY BOLT and tighten to spec as per instructions. Everything is carefully packed and marked, only thing that is a tight fit is those round spacers so file them down 1-2mm. that's all. Beautiful craftsmanship! (Posted on 2015-08-15)

Only downside is that it only with with a rear seat... If you want to use the OEM Suzuki rear cowl with it, you must modify the cowl bracket and the swmotech bracket. I did a small writeup on SVRider on how to modify them to work together. Takes a bit of grinding and a bit of filing but it can work well and be clean. (Posted on 2015-03-11)
