Do you need a separate mounting plate to mount a Bestem 929 top case onto a SWing, if so where can you get one?

Hi Guy,
When I ordered my Bestem box about 3 years ago, I ordered it with the mounting plate. The plate provides the front mounting lugs and the rear "locking" lug you need for the box's security. It also provides the portability of your box if you would want to pull it off and take it with you.
I suppose you "could" mount the box directly to the SWing spoiler deck but that would be a bit uncouth(?). Really... the mounting plate (if you can afford it) is the only way to go, IMHO. Good Luck

My Bestem box came with the top plate. Do they not come with it anymore?

My Bestem box also came with the top plate. I think that it is STANDARD with the mounting plate. Also has a template for drilling the proper holes to mount it to the Silverwing spoiler.

Thanks for help and suggestions. Due to its size I have decided to pass on this particular box.

Just popped the cap off of the red connector and the plugs don't match up. Anyone have any suggestions?
