I took the top case off and took bike for a ride no more heavy beast handles low speed
like my FZ1 used to . I will never put it back on till I sell it 2009 LT I was ready to sell
it because of the low speed hand full
Take my top case of once in a while and in my feeling the handling is far better.
To the question if there is a passenger back rest on the market, yes it is. I thing is a Backrest model by A&S BMW Parts
I take mine off fairly often and replace it with a rack. The case is in the 30 to 35 pound range and sits high on the bike. I like it better off, but then I have to strap my man bag to the seat or rack exposed to the weather.
