I tried a top case on my ZRX- wasnt crazy about it, but loved it on the concours c10. I always rode with saddle bags off, top case only.

I decided to order up a Givi SR4124 tail rack for my 900RS last night.

After searching around the best deal I found was from Motostorm in Italy, $118 USD. I ordered a Givi E251 mounting plate also. Shipping was $33 FedEx 3-4 days to the States. So even with shipping it was much cheaper than what I could find here in the States (most list the the tail rack for $195) and are out of stock.

I have a Givi Top Box that I swap between bikes. I will mount this rack for commuting and 2 up rides. For solo rides I'll probably pull it off. I think it's only 4 bolts for mounting.

I got the Givi Tail Rack and mounting plate installed last night. This will be my commuter / 2 up riding setup.

I looked at what it will take to make removing/installing the tail rack easier and it's not that hard. As is it's a PITA. I will leave it on for a while to see if there's anything else I want to change about it, then pull it off to modify the mounting for a faster/easier setup. I will primarily be modifying  the stock mounting bracket under the seat area to become a 2 piece affair that bolts together easily and sloting out the front holes to slip in.

Here's a photo of it with my Givi Top Box that goes on many of my bikes.

Iíve just fitted the top rack and also the pannier rails. The rack looks ok so I think Iíll leave that on permanently. The pannier rails look a bit functional, but ok with the 22l panniers on. But itís only 3 bolts either side and off they come

Ventura rack looks far less cumbersome & when the bag is not being used you only have a small grab rail in place.

Very true, and I'm weighing up the Hepco & Becker Easy rack plus top box, or the Ventura system. The Easy rack as it looks less like a top box rack when the box isn't on, and I think it bolts on properly, the Givi seems to use a universal set up which I'm not a fan of as tried to use it on another bike and it seemed to me to be a bit of a bodge job. Which is the same as trying to fit a universal plate onto the Hepco & Becker tube rack.

The top box does give me a bit more peace of mind regarding the security of its contents when I'm not on the bike, and would most times like to have the space and it'll probably be more waterproof. But the Ventura system keeps pulling me in its direction!

does anyone have this rack on a bike that has a tail tide installed in-place of the original rear fender? the overhang makes me think it'd be a bit funny looking.

I have just installed the Ventura system on my Cafe. I purchased the sports rack and the passenger grab rail so I can fit either one based on what type of ride I am doing, solo or with pillion. The customer service from Ventura was very good. I posted a question on their website and received a phone call to answer my questions.
The parts arrived just a few days after ordering and the installation was easy and straightforward with no drilling involved like some systems.
With the grab rail just installed it looks fairly clean and with the rack installed it looks functional especially with a small bag attached.
I can certainly recommend the system to anyone thinking of going the Ventura route.
