Tour pak mounting bracket

Hello fellas. I've got a 2012 fltrx with a removable tour pak. I always had an issue with how far back the tour pak sits so I looked around to see if others with a removable tp had the same situation. Is there different types of brackets if you want the tp closer to the rider. I could see two holes showing on the bracket but I can't slide it forward. Any of you guys know a fix to this?

if you remove the liner in the bottom of the tour pack you will expose four bolts. you should be able to remove them and move the tour pack to the forward mount holes. it should move it forward about 1 inch.

lift up mat on bottom of tour pack. there are 4 bolts that go through to the mount. remove them and the tour pack can be moved forward about an inch. line up forward mounting holes and reattach the tour pack to the mount.

I think I see where my issue is. This maybe for an earlier bike but with the newer bracket

Just looked on ebay. There is a horse shoe shaped tube which is listed as tour pack mounting bar. Goes between mount and box. Might solve front to back issue but probably raises tour pack up about 1/2".

Yes, you do need the horseshoe shaped piece of tubing that goes between the actaul mount and the tourpak. Hope that helps.
