Default Moved the trunk back 2"

I moved the trunk back 2", I cut the original brackets and moved them back 2" and re fabricated the brackets.

Did you do these pictures from your phone? Sometimes they go sideways on me if I upload from my phone.

Good work on the relocation - I can't tell how you did it.

Good job! Question is why? Also, wondering if the aerodynamics and rearward placement make the bikes handling any different? Regards, Jim

My wife felt cramped with my backrest installed. I have a custom built backrest on my Yamaha raider and she is used to more room. Handles same as it did before I moved it

i would be curious about the effect it has on the front end weight, more weight up high and farther back taking weight off the front wheel.

That's an more cost effective way to ride wheelies than adding cams

i was thinking more like wobble or tank slapper, but wheelies would work too
