Aluminium Top Box
« on: August 09, 2019, 03:41:41 PM »
I bought a new XRT and part of the deal i got a free top box and sliding mount the only problem I've found with this is it hangs over the passenger seat which makes my partner feel like she's leaning forward.

Looking at the mounting plate and position of the top box in relation to the seat i think the box needs to go back out 2".

I am going to make a new Plate to move the box back but i just wondered if anybody else has had the same issue and how you resolved it.

I sold my Triumph sliding plate and Expedition topbox and choose to go for the GIVI plate SRA6403. This creates more room for the pillion but also increases the choice of topboxes.
Now use the 42ltr and 58 ltr GIVI Outback boxes.

I solved it by never ever carrying a passenger.  :001:

My fiance rides her own machine.  But I still end up carrying her stuff.
