got this thing and love it. its very solid and lets me adjust if needed. Its all the way forward most times tho have moved back for a passenger idea. Only issue is its 4 screws to move it idea, not a quick slide but O well still solid.

Heavy I made mine up from some cheap pieces of steel I had laying around. A couple of simple flatbar extensions to go under my GIVI mounting plate worked fine, and cost me almost nothing.

I think it's more a function of the heavy twisting you do on the throttle....

RichDesmond If you still have the pad on there, take it off. My wife was a lot more comfortable without it, and it gave her more room.

jokermtb My el' cheapo Bestem mounting plate [real thick heavy steel] cantilevers out off the back of the stock rack about 4" or so, and the case is solid.....+2 pts for cheap heavy thick Chinese steel! Ni Hao!

jokermtb Search the forum for Bestem Top Case, and you'll find that almost everyone who bought one moved the mounting plate back to give the passenger lots more room - as you intend. Many of the strategies shown on that thread can be done with almost any mount plate system, or at least get you in the right direction.

I did the mods too, with limited tools - a dremel grinder, a drill, and some creativity!
