Givi Top Case Crowds the Passenger?

Just got the Givi E52 topcase with the improved SWMotech mounts that brings the case back a bit for more passenger room. Got it as much for the passenger backrest as storage. Dont have it securely mounted yet but did put the case in its position on the luggage rack. Wife said it looks like it will be cramped. What is your experience with 2-up with this configuration?

That's why I went with the ADVMotostuff adjustable mount, which will give your passenger an extra 2" of space.

Some people have also been able to reverse the Givi mounts to move the base plate further back.

Amazing...I still have that file. These were intended for Givi mounts but its a pretty simple concept that should be easy to adapt to others.

Use the Adventure Motostuff mount and remove the back rest. It's not much good anyway, too hard.

Does the Adventure Motostuff rack allow more passenger room than the newest generation SWMotech rack/adapter?
