I have a different storage solution for the Super Ten. If you're interested....
Lookin at all the wasted space under my luggage rack plate...I came up with this idea.... A relatively simple solution using a Pelican 1150 case...a Givi M3 series plate ..& the custom bracket I designed

The bracket can also be used in conjunction with some other plate brands as long as they have at least 10.25" of flat width to mount the bracket



As you can see...I have some simple vinyl slides attached to keep the case inside from rattling around. I have used some pins & clips to secure the case. I drilled holes in the Givi plate for the pins. Other options could include locks if you want.



On my installation..I found that my helmet lock tucked in nicely using the Givi's mounting slots for an extra bolting point


Mounting hardware for the custom bracket consists of 4 spacers & 4 bolts.
4 vinyl sliders for case
Hardware to attach the Givi M3 plate (Monokey) or M3M (Monolock) consists of 2 bolts washers & nuts. Thats it

You'll start noticing the little things...like lack of storage cubbys on the bike. Under the rider seat is very minimal....& behind the R/H side cover...the tool kit is it.
I moved my tool kit to the Pelican case along with a dial type air guage..tire plug tools..air compressor & fuel syphon hose. Behind the side cover now houses a set of jumper cables.
Even if I have no luggage on the bike...Im prepared

The upside of my storage box UNDER the rear luggage plate...is that you can keep all the necessary repair stuff in the small storage box...always on the bike...even if not using a rear top case or soft bag....

even if you have quik release side frames with either cases or soft bags. (some other storage boxes mount to the r/h side luggage rack behind the case or bag) remove the racks...storage gone.

With my rear rack bracket...storage is always there. I moved my Yam tool kit from behind the elect access side cover to inside the Pelican storage case. The empty space behind the side cover now holds a pair of jumper cables on my bike. Those are typically not used quite as much as the tool kit & its now easier to get at the tools.

& finally....it keeps all the repair stuff out of your luggage...takin space from clothes..riding gear..etc
