I think I've seen a pictorial and/or directions for installing a Bestem 929 here on this site, but I can't find it. Could someone point me to it and/or give directions for the install?

I have an early Christmas present! 929 with liner and brake lights!

This may help:

I did this for the Givi backrest.  On pic #6 you would drill 4 holes instead of the 2.  But when I installed my Bestem case I was more concerned with lining up the holes of the mount to the spoiler.  But this pictorial I did will help you take the spoiler off and I'm sure you can figure it out from there.  The 4 holes that need to be drilled out just happen to line up perfectly with the Givi mount since Givi made a point to design their mount to fit perfectly.

Also, when I drilled the holes and secured the mounting bracket to the spoiler I bought 4 rubber spacers so it would be off of the spoiler by about 1/2". If you don't use spacers the mounted bracket will be directly on your spoiler. At least it would have been with mine.

My Bestem Topbox came with a Bestem mounting plate. At the time (few years ago), it did NOT align with the "ready to drill" holes in the spoiler. I drilled 4 holes to match the Bestem plate.
NOTE: if you are going to carry a passenger, BEFORE drilling the holes for the topbox plate, I would attach the topbox to the plate and position it over the spoiler where it was "comfortable" for the back of your passenger.... then drill the holes there. I also used rubber washers to make the plate level as Jeff mentioned above. I also cut a 8"x8"x1/2" foam pad and placed it on top of the mounting plate under the topbox... which silences any rattles between the topbox and the mounting plate. billc.

As far as I am concerned, the Bestem 929 with running light and brake light is one of the best on the market for the money spent. I upgraded to the latest with the running light and really like it. Ordered with the liner and I like it also. You end up with two positive and 1 negative for a total of three wires. The most difficult part is soldering the small wires together.Smile

I just installed the Bestem 929 yesterday .  I also ordered the liner .
I did not bother with connecting the light .  
The important thing to remember is that pre-marked holes in the spoiler do not line up with the Bestem mounting plate.
I placed the plate on top and marked the holes to drill . You also need patience drilling holes, starting with a smaller drill bit then moving up in size .
Also , if you don't want to have to cut the Bestem mounting bolts ( they are way too long) you 'll need inch and quarter bolts. I used 5/16 by 1 and1/4 stainless ones .
