Appears that THAT plate is only attached at the top and is being used to mount a GT Moto Tool tube (now defunct company, btw).
You obviously would have to get ride of the tool tube to mount the RotoPax...your plan correct?

If it were my bike...I'd create a LARGER mounting plate that is attached at BOTH the TOP and BOTTOM of the rack.
Don't know what they're called but I call the CONDUIT clamps with the rubber insert and 1 attaching point. Use those top and bottom and you'll have a much nicer mounting plate.
Much more stability.

BTW...these clamps could be used to mount the plate...they should look very familiar to Vario mount users:

TOP only mounting might induce premature fatigue at the mounting point(s).
And you don't want you RotoPax jettisoning off unexpectedly or BREAKING off ONE of the mounting points shown and becoming entangled in the Wheel!
