This is basically exactly what I was looking to do and the pictures explain it so simply.

I actually have a couple pieces of aluminum channel laying around so this will be a pretty simple setup.

Now I just have to figure out where the hell to get those threaded knobs.

You can get the track and knobs at woodworking stores. I use them quite a bit for shop jigs.

hmm

the fact that I have SW Motech luggage racks on the rear has put a bit of a damper on the easy installation of the rails.

The SW Motech racks have left me with close to zero clearance to slide the rails in.

Unfortunately not. I got it because it was the smallest, tall box () I could find. I wanted it more for the height, for a passenger back rest.

Funny thought, but I remember that a company I used to work for had these extremely thin wall mounts for their conference room TVs. They were a massive pain in the ass to line up right when you were trying to hang a tv, but they hugged the wall very close. I found a much smaller version:
http://www.amazon.com/VideoSecu-Moni...at+panel+mount

They're only rated for 66 pounds, but my top case is almost entirely used for storing my jacket liner, water bottle, and riding pants for work, so that's not even close to their max load. I was thinking that you could just attach the "wall" plate to the existing luggage rack on the bike and the "TV" plate to the bottom of the top case, and you'd be all set.

Anyone tried this, or should I check if the KLR guys have done something this ghetto?

look into the kolpin lock and load system. Comes with a base plate to mount to the bike\atv and two accessory plates.

They use em on ATVs to hold rifles and 4gallon fuel jugs a foot away from the mount. The mounts are small, about 7" square. Not sure if I would trust it to hold a large pelican with expensive camera equipment but it should be fine with a smaller case. or hell, even a soft quick release soft bag.

put the rails on top of the racks and bolt them down.

I like that thing with the meshed angle irons. I did something like that once with side cases, angles and square tube with pins.


You bought that rack from SW Motech?

I like how straight forward that is. The biggest thing I want from a quick release is not having to unpack my box to take it off the bike. A couple of long L brackets is a smart way to go, and probably costs next to nothing from the hardware store. What pins are those, and what keeps the loop from falling off?

Not bad, but if you used U-channel on the front with cut-outs and an elevated front bracket you would only need Two pins, and it would be easier to put on and take off.

I might borrow that!
