Can't say I can blame you for trying. I used a factory top case for a long time before the bottom of it cracked. That's when I switched over to the sturdier and more affordable Givi.

Tried looking at the parts drawing? If it hasn't been redesigned there's an insert in the fender that's spinning. You can hold it from the inside with needle nosed pliers.
