Looks like a full face helmet will easily fit into it.

My Arai full face fits nicely along with a pair of gloves and a pack of chewing gum

The one that I have on my K6 is already 5 years old and handy for town riding. Just enough space, also it is narrow and less wind resistance. As stated can take a full face helmet plus gloves. I place my air pump inside the helmet, so it is available when needed.
Bottom line, it is cheap yet serviceable. For those long trips, I change over to the Givi (plus panniers or saddlebags), which can hold a lot more items when touring. Yes, before you ask, I have to change the top box base-plate, but that is quick. I view it as part of prepping the bike before any long trip.

Hmmm... That's interesting, I just replaced my Emgo case with a new Givi Trekker, and the two forward mounting tabs on the Emgo plate were spaced about 1/2" narrower than those on my new Givi Monokey plate.

Without much grief and using 50mm m6 screws, nylon nuts, washers, a screwdriver and 8mm open ended wrench it's not difficult to mount the plate keeping on the rubber cover. I may fiddle to see if I can move one plate forward a set of holes without needing anything fancy.

Update: a bit more of a pain but I was able to move one bracket one hole closer to the seat. NOTE: I still have the rubber cover on the rack. Without that cover the stock 45mm may still work. Having a washer makes it easier to keep a wrench on those nylon lock nuts.
