Reading here I see you can move the trunk back. How? Is the bike made with adjustment bulit in or do you have to modify mounting? What is the procedure? Is wiring involved? Thanks
Yep - can do on the 2000 model year. And I would suspect on all model years, since it's a pretty popular option with the passenger group!!JoeTerry said:Is the adjustment an option on the 2000? I don't remember seeing an extra set of holes, but I wasn't specifically looking for them either.
I can't speak to Ron's mod, but the stock rear position wasnt even noticeable.kronson said:I have read about this before and considered doing it for the extra space and passenger comfort, but how does it affect the handling and weight redistribution to the rear tire etc?
That was also my next question.kronson said:I have read about this before and considered doing it for the extra space and passenger comfort, but how does it affect the handling and weight redistribution to the rear tire etc?
Not sure where you got 5-7 inches. Even with my mod we're talking about 2 inches total.billsmith said:That was also my next question.
I am referring to Ron's mod. By extending the overall length of the bike 5-7 inches what does it do to the ride. And what about the frame if a possible load gain in now exerted further away from the bulk of the engine position. I never thought the LT could be made into a stretch limo. :histerica

My wife only mentioned that she felt a bit more reclined - which makes sense - versus sitting bolt upright. One thing I may do is to mount the pad a bit differently, probably just with some extended bolts and washers, so that it sticks out more on the bottom and has a little pitch to it.billsmith said:Sorry but layman's error.
In pictures #3, #4 of the mod I am seeing 2 1/2 to the left the steel bracket and on the right 8 3/8. Since I have never been under my top case I was not sure what that meant. But again if it was not exactly factory does the extra push back have any unnatural feel?
