I have this installed on the OEM Silverado brackets but it's not a direct fit. The bolt spacing on the OEM bracket is 1.25 inch and this is about 1.675 inch. It was just a matter of drilling one extra hole on each side of the rack to get everything to align. I also removed my factory sissy bar and mounted a Givi top case on this rack. It's pretty sturdy and is capable of a bit more than the manufacturer's 10lb load limit. Looks almost like it belongs on the Star.
