I think all the weight limits and no top case with luggage is out of an abundance of caution. Weather it be a concern with total weight, or weight distribution... Kawasaki seems to be playing it safe.
Some where on here a couple of members have top cases mounted with their luggage. Seems like they bought a rack that was made to work with them but not a 100%.
Also a couple of members run the top case mounted to a spare rear seat.
Personally I use a tail bag and or tank bag in conjunction with my luggage.
