Golgo, that is the exact mount I had on my 14a in addition to a stiffy kit when I found my broken subframe. Pull the topbox off and don’t use it until you get a proper mount like the tube rack or the Yamaha heavy aluminum rack. What you have is basically junk !
I would also add a stiffy as well because quite frankly with out it on mine with the broken subframe there would’ve been piece’s of the back of my bike all over the road. On my bike I kept things light in the top box thanks to many warnings from the guy’s here about broken subframes. And probably 95% of the time my top box was empty. So with that mount you’ll probably notice that the top box flops around which is transferred into the subframe causing it to break,take the box off! That is the older mount that Shad originally offered prior to the updated tube rack, don’t use it !
Also Gary’s picture of the broken frame is spot on although mine was in many more piece’s.
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
