    Default Spyder RSS - rear top case and bracket

    I know that there use to be options... but a lot of them are discontinued (or at least I am having the worst time finding something).

    Are there still options out there for a rear top case... preferable installed behind the rear seat backrest?

    I put on a Besteem box on top of the rear plate, works great about $85 Canadian from Amazon
    Done all of Canada except NWT and parts of Australia

    I don't have a rear plate... the rear passenger back support that I have is one piece, fixed (called the Roadster).

    sports rack & backrest are on EBay, maybe not color you looking for but can get that fixed later. the case however only came in black & required the sportsrack/backrest to attempt working. Unless u good at diy & have a hitch IMG_5024.jpg

    Unfortunately, the backrest that I have right now is not the one that was build to work with the sport rack.
    The hitch is a pretty cool idea... but I don't have one .

    I guess my idea was more along the lines of a sissy bar luggage rack and then eventually I can add a top case on it.

    Oh... did not knew there was the option for a case with the fixed backrest, thank you!
    I will start searching and see what I can find out there .

    Can you fit a full face helmet in that thing? For the passenger.

    If is the one that is mounting on the fix backrest, then I might be interested... if I can afford it .
    Otherwise, I really do not want to buy another backrest.

    It is the one that mounts on fixed backrest and it's quick release, It's a pretty good one if you can afford it
    And yes it fits a full sized helmet and i've got a pretty big head.

    Thank you for confirming it fits a full face helmet - that is one of the main reasons I am planning to get a top case.
    I'e already sent an email to the dealer where I got the trike from (to see what kind of prices they might have and if they can get it - usually are good at giving me some discounts when they can ).


    The "affordable" part was a reply to Sputter... regarding the plate that he wants to sell .

    Thanks for the picture, but unfortunately that will not work for my setup.
    Based on what donhy is saying, there is an actual case that connects directly to the backrest... yours is a plate that replaces the backrest.

    Thanks... and sorry!

    That's what I used as I had that plate on my bike when I bought it. I used the Besteem mounting plate, drilled four holes through the plate with 1 inch spacers. That way you can mount it forward or backwards on the plate. The besteem box has a back rest on the top box and by unlocking the plate you can remove the whole top box and put in the rear seat rest only or take the box off and leave the plates in place. My box in the 90 so it takes a full face helmet as well.
    Works great

    few possibilities with the sports rack depending on how you wanna go one of best Iíve seen so far:
    https://www.spyderlovers.com/forums/...dollar-luggage Followed by
    IMG_7423.JPGIMG_7573.JPG. Bolted straight to lid, believe GIVI monokey cases come with the mounting plates you just have to figure where & how you want them.
    IMG_7424.JPG or can go with brp rear rack bag part#280000317IMG_6237.JPGthey also have a passenger seat bag #280000320 also found a pic of my full face XL modular helmet in topcaseIMG_7579.jpg some room in corners for a roll of socks maybe to keep from bouncing around. Sissy bar bags work great tooIMG_3033.jpggood brands options & sizes available, personally like securing mine with a bike lock to the passenger grab rails(peace of mind till I get to hotel& it comes in room with me)

    I talked with the parts guy from the dealer where I got the trike and he said that BRP still had very few cases that mounts with the Roadster backrest.

    The guy was very reluctant to let me order it when he found out I am having the RS-S version; because on the spec sheet that he had, it was clearly mentioning for ST only.
    Soooo... here is hoping that it will fit. I don't see why not since as far as I know tail of the RS-S and ST is the same (but maybe BRP had a reason to mention ST only!?). The front is the one that has some differences.

    Here's hoping... he said that he should receive it maybe towards the end of this week. I'll update more then...

    Expensive as hell though... but considering is coming with the mounting plate (I assume) and the case, maybe is not that bad (around $650CAD ).
    But I need it for the passenger helmet and additional space so... yeah, I bent over .

    Guaranteed it will fit and you will love it. The top case mounts on the backrest not the bike itself so it has nothing to do with RS vs ST not sure why the advertise it for ST only since the new style backrest is the same part # for both bikes.

    Thanks for giving me more confidence !
    I believe you... that's why I pressed on and insisted on ordering - promised I will buy it no matter what, so now I am invested .

    It is very odd that I cannot find any kind of pictures with the seat installed. I mean more detailed pictures. I am curious how it actually mounts on the seat.
