Raising the rack plate?

Recommended Posts

sams700

Would there be any reason I could not fit bigger bolts, use spacers and raise the givi rack plate by say 10mm above the givi fitting arms?

 

The reason I want to do this is because I can't remove my rear seat as there is no cut out in the monolock base (the monokey base does have a cut out).

 

However if I raise the plate by 10mm it gives sufficient height to take the seat out.

 

Thanks

No reason that I can see. :)

I agree with Simon, all you're doing is faising the centre of gravity a little.

That's great thanks. Will order some longer bolts and spacers/ colllars.

Hmmm would I be able to get some long strips of hard nylon or something from somewhere to have a stronger support?
