Hi Everyone,

Just thought I pass along that I just put on a trunk relocation kit and it was a breeze about 15 minutes tops. Think it took longer to get my FR trauma bag and other gear out of the trunk than to actually put it on

The big test will be in the morning when mamma tests it out.

Now all I need is to have my Hartco seat here already at 6'4" the stock seat is killing me. Talked to Mike from Hartco (by the way seemed like a real nice guy) and he took all my wife's and my measurements and it should be here middle of next month. Hopefully it will get here before my birthday, couse me and the wife wanna take a two day ride to nowhere in particular
Ride Safe, Ray



By the way the trunk is cracked and will be replaced this winter.

Working riding whenever we can. Wish I had more time to hang out with my goldwing family!

Hey Ray, do you still have the instruction set for that relocation kit? I bought a used one from a local dealer and he didn't have a copy. They're supposed to work for the 1100's and 1200's. I have an 1100.

I did obtain a scanned copy of the instructions from a seller on ebay but the resolution is terrible when I increase the view in order to read it. I don't think I got all the hardware with it either, just 4 bolts with spacers on them, seems to me there should be 4 more bolts at least.

My wife sure could use the extra 2 inches it gives her as my backrest bothers her legs.

Hey Bagmaster, Your in luck, I will scan that this afternoon for you after I take a nap been up since yesterday and am kind tired. plus it is in garage in one of my manuals that I printed off from this great site.

You should have recieved the bracket, 4 bolts, 4 lock washers and 4 spacers. Make sure you use the lock washers as you don't want it to losen up on you. The 4 bolts for the trunk are reused for securing the trunk to the bracket. The nuts welded on the bracket go on bottom side of the bracket once on the bike.

A side note.....My wife loved the extra 2-3 inches it gave her and it also let me slide back a bit to

Ride Safe, Ray

Thanks Ray for doing that, go get some sleep, I can wait. My bracket doesn't have nuts welded to it as it's the model that flips over depending on which model bike you're mounting it to.
