Trunk vibes/movement

Hello all, just got my givi v47 bag mounted on the SW Motech rear rack. My question to you all is how much does your trunk actually vibrate or shake on the back. I have only ridden solo so no one has been able to confirm if its actually moving or if I'm just a worry wart. I didn't know what to expect with the trunk, it's my first. Input would be great

Also, I am using the larger rubber spacers up front and the smaller in the read. Both front and rear with the small felt wobbly and it wouldn't clamp down with both large on...

Hey, I used to have the V46 on the sw motech rack , and found it a pretty solid setup. All my spacers were the same , box locked in pretty tight . If it loosens up a little ,or you feel that wobble just use some industrial strength velcro on the bottom of your box and the adapter plate . I suppose a piece of cloth will do the trick too.

Garage
Mine was rock solid when I got it. No wobbles. But I had 2 occasions were the box came off while riding(Both times involved jumps....). Since I never left home without the top box, I drilled 2 holes in the box and rack, and bolted them together. Hasnt come off since.

Gotcha thanks for the input, I'm probably just imagining it and worry all of my valuables will be tossed about on the freeway lol so not even a wiggle when it was stationary?

Do you remember if you were using the thin or larger spacers?
