The finished product.



After mounting the 3 steel bars, test fitting them on the bike and making sure that everything lines up and works well, I checked to see where I would need to reuse the rubber feet. This will stop the chatter and the clinking of metal on metal and will aid in the support of the trunk.



The old rubber feet were reused and in some places the thickness required a thick and thin one held together buy that wonderful foam tape. The foam tape was used to mount them to the trunk.


The open holes were caulked from both sides. In my case the caulking will dry transparent.

This is how the “new” feet line up on my install. There is 1 on each side just in front of the lock. If you chose to set the trunk back other then 3.5 inches that I did then things down here would line up differently. You may need to mount “new” feet elsewhere too.

I hope this little “How To” guide helps you if you were thinking about relocating your trunk. It was an easy project to do. My wife loves the extra room back there now and we’re not so squished. She admits to being a bit nervous as she feels “loose” back there. She will get use to it… I already have!



If anyone has questions, feel free to ask.

Man, am I ever glad I have a 1200 and not an 1100!After reading what you had togo through to get 3&1/2" more room in the back seat, I'm very happy with my 3" of extra free room. It was done all w/spare stuff laying around, and it's very strong & secure. I think, if I remember correctly, it only took about an hour or so to do. The difference of course, is that my Interstate has a lot less going on on the trunk than that 1100. The bottom of the trunk is relitivly smooth, and the rack that the trunk sits on is more plain. If you would like to see my 3" setback, look at my avatar or my pics on the Gallery.

If ya can\'t stay up on 2 wheels, better to make \'em three than to keep talkin ta EMT people.

Ginsco (and others),



Thanks for the compliments. Good luck with your mods tonight.



We are "fluffy" people and the extra 3.5" were needed. You may not need this amount of room. Too much is just as bad as too little room with the pillion not havingany place to have his/her back against (too far ahead).



Don't go over the 3.5 inches as it (I think) makes things too unstable.



Good Luck !!



Tim.
