    I didn't think that the trunk filled with Miller High Life and ice would be overloaded.

      No disrespect to the guy that made those but the stock used didn’t look very heavy at all. Maybe a little beefier material should be used

        I have been looking at getting a tour trunk for my bike and if I do, I will make my own bracket mount and I will make some support brackets that will go down to my saddle bag bracket mounts which are factory Yamaha. I'm not worried about the weight, it is not enough to be worried about. But it will help with the "flop motion" when hitting hard bumps in the road which is most likely to culprit to the cracking arms. Its the fulcrum effect, that the weight and mass of the tour truck is far back from its mounting point. It should be reinforced to keep this from happening. Eventually the mounts that James makes probably will crack over time. How long that time will be is yet to be seen. I like his mount but I have been fabricating for quite a long time and I think that any style mount will need to be reinforced to last, but that is entirely my humble opinion and not meant is any way to demean to upset anyone for their ideas or what they feel they like as far as style, shape or function.

            Won't have to worry about breaking this latest one, it doesn't fit.
            Screwed around forever wondering why I couldn't squeeze the bolt in, until I measured with the one that did fit.

            So try another one? 5th mount in 4 years?
            Plus still have to try to fix the wiring issues from this thing ripping off. :-(

              Gheeze, no luck at all, did you get in touch with the maker yet?

            Trying to get in touch...
            but still about out of time for screwing around with this and still making Celina.

            Just got back in town and have a lot of work to catch up on if I was going to make the bike trip.

              Easy fix for now would be drill & tap new holes a little further down, you might want your box a little higher depending on your bags.
