I know this is out there in cyberspace but can anyone point in the right direction?

I need a little more room for the old lady and I know my top case is all the way forward.

Thanks

Mike

It’s pretty easy. Remove the passenger seat and unplug the connections going to the top box. Use a screwdriver to unclip the liner, detach the Velcro strip at the rear and remove the case liner. Undo the 4 bolts holding the case and remove the top case. You will see 4 bolts in the black plastic. Move them to the empty holes that were holding the top case. Now just reassemble using the farther back holes.

Thanks for the help guys. I am beginning to feel intimate with this bike now that I have had the clothing off a couple of times!

Easy removal of the top case

I have had the pleasure of moving the top case forward and backward several times to help my wife decide which she likes better.

The first time I removed the rear seat, unplugged everything etc.

I dont do that any more, unhook the strap that holds the lid pull out the trunk liner, use a small screwdriver to unclip it at the latches, remove 4 bolts, tilt the box forward, remove 4 bolts one at a time and move fore or aft, bolt the box back in place. 5-10 minutes.

Hello guys !

I already push the top case back for 1 inch using the 4 other holes. Has anyone ever move it back more than that drilling new holes for example ? That way the passenger back would be less vertical like the GL1800...

Thanks !

Please check Ron Millers post in the beginning of this same thread.

I have done it also and this mod gives you an extra storage space behind the rear seat. Then I raised the passenger backrest upwards 13 mm in order to get better access to this new storage from the top side (when the trunk lid is open.)

Ari,
When do you find time for riding ?.
Hehe Simon, I ride when we don't have snow on the ground.:p (from April to Oct/Nov)

Exceptionally however, I had the bike stripped just last week because I needed some additional Hella auxiliary HID lights for the CCR trip plus finished some videocamera installations. (I'll make a small separate report on that.)

Regards
