Has anyone found a top case solution that will work with the Shiver 900? I think the Hepco & Becker Junior would look great on the bike but according to H&B they feel the Shiver doesn't have enough solid and secure area to fit a mounting system that they feel would hold up over time. Any insight would be great. I was hoping to do a top case in place of side bags. I also found that the C-Bow system is limited to the Orbit case size which is just 22L.
Any Suggestions are Greatly Appreciated!!

I feel like a lot of the 750 parts would also work on the 900. may take same research and a purchase/return to find out though.

I've a lot of research on this. I've had trial and error with Hepco Becker and made query to Givi about this. Both were designed to 750 and for certain I know that HB doesn't fit. Givi answered that they can't confirm, so I'm waiting for confirmation from them.
Both looked like a match, Givi more than HB.

Has anyone with a 900 tried the givi te6700 luggage brackets? I queried USA givi, they don't know, and italy givi, no reply. Looks like they fit where the rear handguards (Aprilia) attach.

Here's the Italy Givi's reply:
"we have not had the chance to test our rack on 900cc version, but if we look at the pictures of the two versions they look the same.

It is probably compatible, make a check with the bike and the instructions that we attach to you.

Best regards GIVI Staff"

They suggested this model of the rack:
6702FZ - KZ6702
MONORACK SPECIFICO - SPECIFIC MONORACK - MONORACK SPECIFIQUE - SPEZIFISCHES MONORACK - MONORACK ESPECÍFICO
APRILIA SHIVER 750 (2010 - 2012)

Try Ventura. I found them to be excellent.

Pulled the trigger and went with a custom-made rack mount for my shiver. :banana:

Hey @Not2L8,
Yeah got a shop to do the custom rack, if i'm not wrong it's made from steel, spray painted black (powdercoated is available too). It's not cheap since its hand-made. Its bolted to two screw points underneath the pillion seat and two screw points close to where the passenger peg is located. You could remove the two rods on the sides since its detachment if you do not wish to have them but i had it just for extra weight support. I've attached more detailed images below.
