Yes! Those are the plans I used. Worked very well. I could see that you could get even more room by changing your measurements. Good plans. jimsjinx

Just a followup. My wife and I have put about 400 miles behind us since the trunk relocation, and she loves the added room. It helps me,too, cause I can lean my backrest a little further back without encroaching on her space. I still plan on fiddling with the helmet lock mod, but don't have the time right now. Sorry niether of us posted any pics. It is a pain in the tush to take it all apart once you got it together, that's my excuse! It does work well though. jimsjinx

I would like to move my wife back as well. I think I may have to go a minimum of2" though.



For anyone who may have followed these plans, I have some questions: is it just changing the hole to hole measurements to increase the set-back(which seems pretty obvious)? I'm specifically wondering about the 3 lever latch shim. For that, does the thickness change instead (since it doesn't really seem to relocate on the X/Y axis, but rather the Z axis by 3/16"...so the new thickness should be 1/4" {((3/16)/3)*4})?



Also the helmet extension bracket drawing seems to be incomplete with measurements. That and the drawing for the helmet bracketsshows 4 holes, but the photo shows 3. I'd be happy to take pictures, and make accurate CAD drawings if someone could verify these questions for me.



Thanks!

[align=center]Hi jimjinx,
A bit off topic, but I think you're the man in the know. I want to build a dog carrier in the trunk of my 1500 trike and need to know if the lid separates at the chrome strip behind the backrest, or would the whole cover have to come off speaker pods and all.
I want to buy a used lid and modify it. Keep the stock one nice and be able to take our little buddy along with us.

Thanks,

Bob

THE TRUNK CAN COME OFF AT THE HINGES, BUT IS ALL ON PIECE WITH THE SPEAKERS. YOU COULD GET A 2ND LID & CUT IT OFF BEHIND THE TRIM LEAVING ABOUT 2" ALL THE WAY AROUND SO IT WILL STILL LATCH. THIS WAY YOU CAN STILL HAVE THE SPEAKER,
I may have an extra lid for this as it's already damaged. I have listed it in the SALES/WANTED section.

YES!! Those are the plans I used, and it works great. You can even go a little farther back than the plans if needed. Thanks for posting that link! jimsjinx
