I think I figured out my issue with the latch not releasing.  The stock rack hardware protruded above the rack surface and slightly into the bottom of the case, which put upward force on the bottom of the case as I pulled downward on it to click it into place.  I changed the hardware to flatter heads that sit below the surface of the rack and it is much easier to take on/off and I was able to stick some felt pads onto the case bottom to really snug things up well.

The trouble is i can't see how the small rubber feet will ever squash down over time if you can't get the topbox on in the first place,there was no way no matter how hard i pushed down inside it was ever going to fit so i had to sandpaper about 4mm off them and its still needs real force to get it to click/lock into place,never had this problem with givi racks/plates or their topboxes and these are supposed to be givi.

My standard topbox was a real pain to put on, but came of ok, I removed the 2 rear rubbers and it easily clicked on or off, so I tried swoping the rear ones for the front ones and it works perfectly now.

I was able to take the new top box for about a 300 mile test ride over the weekend.  I hit some of my favorite twisties, and my favorite taco spot on the way home.  I couldn't even really tell it was back there, and it's easy on/off now that I've fine tuned it all.  So far so good!

The top case matches well with the OEM cases...  I want tacos now, I may have to hit up Torchy's sometime this week.

Thank you.  This won't be the last time this thing holds a Torchy's order.  We go about once a week.

Wish I'd thought of this. My oem top box would just not attach no matter how hard you pushed down.  So I cut off a few mm of the rear rubber stops and it works fine now.

I ripped off one of those rubber bumpers on the givi rack and found a replacement set real cheap at Revzilla. Right after i ordered them i used some Gorilla Glue to attach the rubber bumper to the rack. Works perfect and now i had a new set of replacement bumpers if ever needed...https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/givi-z126-rubber-bumper-set-for-monokey-and-monolock-top-plates
