GSA cases, with the proper racks, will fit the GS without changing the rear rack because the plastic GS rack don't foul any mounting points for GSA cases. GSA tail rack and Varios don't work together.
There IS a strong market for GSA luggage and racks. The top case rack often goes for around $200 and the side racks for $300. Side case prices depend on condition, and go anywhere from $600 to...$1000?
I saw on some thread a poster changed the flange positions on his GSA rack, and re-welded it back together yielding a unit that allowed him to run the GSA top rack and Vario side rack/cases.
It was about a month ago or so. I tried to save that for future reference, but...?
