How do I move a Givi V46 top box back 2"?

I've heard or read somewhere there is a kit that allows moving a Givi top box back 2" on a Wee. I have a nice Givi V46 top box with Givi racks. 2 up the seating is just about that much too cramped.

Did I hear correctly? Is there a way to move the box back?

I think you may be thinking of the Amotostuff adjustable mounting system.

You can make a plate setup that moves it.

See the last post (by Heavy) in this thread:

You can also move it back some (about an inch?) with the E528 kit, by installing the front bracket backwards.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

I used the Adventure Motostuff Plate with good results. Pricey but well made and versatle.

The SW Motech mounts claims to give you a extra half a inch. Be sure to read the fine print at the very bottom of the page as well. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...tview/240/203/

Good luck

Thanks all. I'll like both the amotostuff rack and Heavy's adaptors. Both sound like excellent solutions.

Several times a year I visit Carson City NV where Amotostuff is located. If I can I'll drop by and see their accessory rack and then decide.

I can't say personally, but I have heard good things about adventure moto stuff's plate. Besides, you can't go wrong giving your business to them.

This is what I did on my Vee - With the E52 Top box fitted there is plenty of room for the Misses.

I'm having a good day making my bike rideable for my passenger. First I was able to add sliders as higher passenger footpegs and then I found if I switched top boxes, a very nice Givi V46 for an older E42 (or some such size), there was quite a bit more room for the passenger, maybe 2".

For now that will work.
