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.

Thanks for the ideas.

|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!|

Amotostuff makes a bracket that moves Givi cases back. I've had one since I first bought my topcase. It's not 4" but it's better.

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!
