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

The 1150 Pelican easily holds a cheapo Slime air comp w/string plugs in bag
2 tire plug tools
1 air guage in plastic case
1 fuel siphon hose in bubble bag
1 small box w/fuses..2 multi knifes
Yamaha tool kit w/Givi rack release tool

(a set of jumper cables occupies the orig tool cubby behind side cover)

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

I wish I could take credit for the actual fabrication of the brkt... But it was done by a business thru a friend. I only drilled holes & fitted it to the bike. It is my design though

I've been using the storage setup for a while now & can report absolutely no problems with it. Best solution for this bike.
Sorry no one else was interested in having one...

Very nice, just saw this. I had an altrider rack that cracked, have a steel copy of that now basically but since I am going to harbor freight later maybe I’ll see if they have a case that would fit under my rack.

I have the bumot hard case and the racks have a tool box, keep some tools and tire plugs but keep my air pump in my luggage somewhere. Would be nice to have another spot it could all fit.
