I'm getting ready to order a Shad SH45 top case and top mount. Before proceeding, I have two questions. First, can anyone tell me if the arrangement of the holes for the passenger hand rails has changed from the 2021 model to the 2022 model? Shad customer service recommended the top mount for the 400GT 2019-2021 but didn't know if the hole pattern had changed with the 2022 model year. Second, in order to access the bolts that secure the passenger hand rails, do I need to remove anything besides the two fasteners shown in the attached photo in order to lift the "helmet holder" out of the way. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.IMG_1600 (1).jpg

Their are 2 additional torx screw underneath the body part by the keyhole for opening the seat. One on each side

Don’t forget about the 2 plastic torx lock pins located by the seat hinge. It’s only accessible once the strut is unscrewed. Seat needs to be vertical to get at.

If you’re not sure, I can post photos.

Is the shad mount for the 400 that much different from the 650gt. Mine only uses the hand rail bolts and the central rear bolt and does not get anywhere near the front of the seat.

I didn't need to remove them

Hello, I also want to add a SHAD SH45 top box. Can you let me know how the install goes and any information that may help me. Also, where did you order from and what parts did you have to order, box, plate etc.
Thank you

I can't help you regarding specifically adding a topcase -- I had the OEM luggage rack and topcase installed by the dealer, before taking deliver of my C 400 GT in June -- but I can point out that if this involves messing with the underseat storage area, be careful of the switch at the back of that unit.

I'm talking about the switch that confirms to the computer that the flexcase is in the up position, in order to start the bike. I managed to break that switch (because I was unaware of its out-in-the-open location, and wasn't paying attention) when I removed that entire storage unit, when working on another project. See my gallery, for pics and explanatory captions, starting with this image:

Hey Mike - Did you have success with this? I want to order the Shad mount as well and am interested to know if this mount worked!
