Kuryakin made one a few years ago with a push button quick-remove feature. They don't offer it any more, but you may be able to find one on ebay or post a wanted ad on this forum...

The problem with the stock luggage rack is that you are hanging the weight too far back and will badly affect handling - I think the weight limit for the stock rack is actually pretty small (10lbs?).
Do you carry a passenger? If not search for MegaZ rack on the forum - this puts the weight over the passenger seat where you could obviously carry more weight.....

I have a tall sissy bar that I plan to have cut, re-welded and powdercoated to make a horizontal platform onto which I can clamp a motorcycle trunk. stevel has a good point...I may throw the handling off, but I like to experiment.

I'd be glad to make you one of my racks if you're interested...
