Ordered my new FZ9 for my 40th Bday! Very excited about this but I need a trunk or tail bag, not sure about the tail bag but found the shad case and it looks pretty nice to me:

Called Shad and it looks the top mount needed is not in stock yet (Available starting first week of March) they offered me a 10% discount code for the mount and the top case at online. Code: SHAD10FZ9

Top Mount:

FAZER FZ9

Suggested top case:

SHAD SH39 TOP CASE

Seems like a great option, have read great things about SHAD, looks Yamaha US carries a range of their cases also.... any pictures on FZ9?

Thanks!

Shad has great quality and are right up there with the best. They are almost as pricey as the Givis but definitely worth it.
However, the picture is weird showing the rear of the bike with the rear cowl off! I checked the literature and the plastics come back on- so that was a relief to see!
IMO, the rack doesnt seem very well integrated with the lines of the bike like the OEM rack does- which btw, costs about the same and can fit a Shad trunk with the adapter. But, practicality wise, you can't go wrong with either.

Indeed that is an ugly rear carrier mount. Glad and very happy I got the OEM one...
Check out this thread, it has more pictures

Yes I like the Shad quality and I really need a top case not sure about the rack style, the OEM cost $248 and Shad's rack is $110 (with the discount), huge difference to me!

Oh yes, it was an oversight- the OEm is about $230/240 odd delivered from Canada- maybe your dealer can give you a discount? $110 sounds good...maybe wait for the SW-Motech which may fit well. Like I said, can't go wrong as far as practicality goes.

It looks like the Shad carrier puts the case further forward than the OEM.
Correct...
The SHAD line does NOT fit on the OEM Yamaha rear carrier, I made it fit however but it is about 2" beyond the triangle aka from the stop forward (rear carrier).
Honestly I would not purchased the SHAD line, if I knew about it before hand. But I made already an over $300 dollars investment for the needed functionality.
Check my SHAD L46 installation thread for additional picture.
But I can say, handling wise I mean through commuting traffic and dodging everything (semi aggressive), I haven't notice a change (~3lb). BUT as soon as I load it up with groceries and 2 6packs I can feel the differences.

OEM and SHAD unverisal mounting plate is a miss fit -sorry

It works fine on mine, here are pics to show that no modification has been made to mount the Shad on the OEM Yamaha rear carrier.

Your universal mounting plate is a different one that the one SHAD send me for my L46. What Topcase are use using and how old is it?

It's a 42 L but a 46 L also fits.

It's very old, I bought in 2002 ...
And I thought that Shad was still delivering the same universal mounting plate, that's why I said it was OK.
