I appreciate all the feedback. I kind of just want to stay OEM just for the sake of OEM. I do like the trunk and I don't take real long trips but it's nice going to work are you can put your lunch in there and you can actually fit to full face helmet so I do like that for the wife and I. But drilling a hole in that rear rack really makes me have some reservations. That's kind of scary thought but I'll look into it if I can't find one from Honda I'm looking for.
I don't think the install of a non-OEM trunk involves drilling the OEM luggage rack. I believe most people drill the aftermarket trunk to match the hole pattern of the OEM. But yes the OEM look is superior to the aftermarket IMHO. Did you call Honda PowerSports yet?
I installed a GIVI trunk along with the GIVI mounting plate. It didn't require any drilling on the bike or the GIVI mounting plate. I like it as it allows the trunks removal at any time without any tools.
