THis will work with a Corbin wont it. With that little flap where the backrest goes its tight stock just wanting to make sure that it will fit with this on there.

I don't know for sure...

if it will fit when using a Corbin seat with a passenger backrest. If you look at the picture in post #2 (page #1 of this thread) it appears there is plenty of room. However you have to factor in that my rack is raised around 3/8" due to the Jesse saddlebag mounts being under it.

If I can see what you're talking about maybe I can give you a more informed answer. Can you take a picture of the rear of your seat (when it is mounted) and post it here?

questions on the large rack..

Does the rack seem to block the tail light? I am a little concerned of cagers in trucks seeing my tail light.

I appreciate your concern, but I've been running the regular size for years and it doesn't block the taillight. I think what helps this is the extensions (regular or large) do not sit level but actually slope slightly up and to the rear. This gives the taillight much more visibility than you would think.

Look at Eakins post #45 to see what I mean.

Are you still in business? I'm gonna need that rack to mount spare TKC80 on my trip on TAT this April. I was thinking using some kinda rack, tie a tire, throw sleeping bag in the cavity and strap bag and tent and such on top. Do you think I'm gonna need a larger vergion? I'm traveling solo and part of the passenger sit can be utilized.

Yes, Still in business.

Sounds like you have an excellent trip planned Voluhzia. I can offer a few suggestions, but in the end you'll have to figure out your needs.

Heavy items down low and forward. Light weight items higher on the bike. The factory rack is only rated for 20lbs, and weight that far back (and high) on the bike affects handling. Please don't over do it.

A tire is heavy so it would be a good idea to slide it as far forward as possible. The question is "how much will you need to move around on the bike" while riding the TAT?

I could be a bad thing if the tire locks you too far forward. I'm sure there is a decent compromise that you'll find.

Note that I have plenty of regular extensions but only a few of the large version on hand at this time.

PM me for payment details.

Got the rack yesterday, Wednesday, and put it on. Took about 1/2 hour. I did read the instructions but after I installed it. The instructions call for two rubber washers on top of the stock rack, I put one on top and one below. I also didn't remove the stock rack, I just loosened the bolts since I have a Givi side rack mouted and didn't want to screw with the alinement. Anyway other than the washer screw up it was a seamless install and a great looking product. I'll take some pics after I finish wiring the bike.
Thanks

rack

Reinstalled the rack this afternoon with both rubber washers ON TOP of the stock rack and there is a difference. With one washer on top the racks did touch as I was told. Redid everything and now I can see daylight between the racks. Thanks for the info. Pics on the way as soon as I hide all my wiring and put all the plastic back on.

rack pics

Grautier:
Here's a couple a shots of the rack mounted. I did hang a 16 led aux brake light under it and hooked it to a modulator and I believe I will have to extend the turn signals when i have the rev pack on the back.
