Corbin Smuggler and Rear Carriers
After searching around this forum for a little bit and finding nothing on the fitment of the Corbin Smuggler on GenIII's with aftermarket rear carriers (Givi, Shad, OEM Aluminum), I have decided to become the guinea pig for everyone. I recently bought a 2013 that came with a Smuggler already installed (yay!!). It also came with a V47 trunk but it was mounted with just the steel plate on the ABS stock rack; thankfully the subframe isn't cracked or broken. Last week I bought the Givi SR357 rack from Revzilla and it DOES NOT FIT WITH THE SMUGGLER. The grab rails on the 357 are slightly taller than the stock ones and catch on the Smuggler enough that it cannot slide into place. That rack is on its way back to Revzilla and the Shad rack should be arriving today for round two. Hopefully the Shad one fits so I don't have to pay for the pricey OEM aluminum one. I will also be fitting an aluminum Givi monokey plate onto the Shad rack if it fits with the Smuggler. If everything fits, I'll take pictures if any extra spacers or washers were used. I also recently read that some Shad racks need elongated holes; I'll report back later if that is needed too.
