GTL/GTLE top case trunk ajustment

Has anyone wanted to move the top case forward or back on an GTL/GTLE?
Looking to move mine 1" or so....
The K1200LT you were able to move forward/back granted it was bolted but able to move.....

Re: GTL/GTLE top case trunk ajustment

The rear rack on the GTL sits about 2" further back than the rear rack on the GT.

So you can buy (or trade someone for) a GT rear rack, which will move the trunk forward a bit.

The longer GTL part # is 46 54 7 727 365 LUGGAGE GRID $223.63.

The shorter GT part # is 46 54 7 681 144 LUGGAGE GRID $329.91.

The passenger grab handles are wider on the GTL, but either luggage grid will bolt right up.

See this thread over on the for details and pics.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
