Corbin seat & Givi rack problem

I just recieved my Corbin seat, the seat is great. I also have the Givi E-21 side racks & the Givi topcase rack. The seat will not fit unless I remove the support bracket that is attached to the rear grab handle bolt. Any suggestions?

Sorry, Don't know about your luggage system... but, HOWS THE NEW SEAT? Been waiting for some one to test before purchasing.

What happens if you remove the support bracket? If you only lose the grab handle, that won't matter, unless your passenger suddenly has a reason to hang on!

rcvd my corbin yesterday. it's fatter at the back as I'm having the same problem. see attached photo where to get the seat mounted I had to take off the top hanger bracket of the givi sidebags/kawa racks-that snakes under the seat. With the brackets, I put 2 washers on each of the 2 seat lock bracket bolts to extend it, couldn't get it locked in and decided to think about it. I haven't called corbin yet. I'm not sure what I'm gonna do. The seat seems fantastic but I need the bags.

I called Corbin twice about the problem I was having and they never returned my calls.
What I did was removed the grab rails, then I drilled the holes larger in the bracket where it is connected under the seat where the grab rail was attached and I filed the edge of the bracket so it wouldn't rub against the bottom edge of the seat. I bolted the bracket on and the bags and topcase fit great.
