Now your going to have to rekey the luggage locks to match the ignition key. Some find it challenging.

Last Step = The panels - primer yesterday, paint this afternoon and 1st coat of clear coat tonight - one to two more coats and then 24 hour dry and they go on too! A few small imperfections, but it is looking good!

2014 NC700 DCT
My demo 2016 NC came with this rear carrier and I can't tell if it will work with the Honda OEM rear trunk.
I thought I was lucking out by having it come installed on my bike, but it doesn't look like any of the carriers that I've seen online.
My dealer thinks I need the OEM rear carrier, which has the louvers in it.
Should I stick to getting an aftermarket bag like Givi ? And do bags require a mounting plate that could fit to my carrier?
I would bet money that the Honda trunk would fit, maybe a local member with one would meet you to test one on your rack.
I like and use my Honda top case but I had a custom rack fabricated to use with my Touratech pannier rack swapped from my 2012 NC' when I got my 2016 NC'. Because of the styling change of the rear fender area from the 2012-2015 and the 2016-2017 models, the hand rails and racks are different.

18 centuries of the choice, 'believe this way or die', & always chosen life, is a lineage difficult to separate from. I understand. But do not fear my belief science created the universe, I'll never say "Big Bang's Will" made me do you harm. We are a genuinely free & peaceful lot.
Just the standard disclaimer about not exceeding the weight limit, same as all the other OEM racks I've seen.
There is a part number on the underside but I'd need one of the tiny scope cameras to see it.
I've tossed the dice and ordered a Givi Monolock bag and hopefully its plate attaches to my rack pretty well.
I installed the Givi Monolock (E370) today. I utilized the 2 rear-most factory holes on the carrier and then drilled 2 more 1/4" holes for the forward mounting points.
The bolts going through those holes weren't long enough so I made the trip to the hardware store for longer bolts. I wanted to use the s-shaped brackets on the underside to make sure they bolts couldn't rip through the mounts. Got everything installed but then realized I didn't use washers so looks like I've more work to do...
