Be careful.. at full rear shock compression these type boxes will shear off your mud guard mounting bolt and could take out your rear brake bleader... ask me how I know

edit: to be fair to advdave, who just sent me an email, I am not sure if the damage to my rear brake bleader was caused by his box, or the european manufactured one I replaced it with. I had one of the early versions of advdave's box, but sold it pretty quickly because I did not like the side opening design. I replaced it with one of the rear opening boxes from ebay. I honestly do not know when the damage occured. Dave says his boxes have a cut out on the backside specifically to avoid the brake bleader, so I imagine the damage was done by the newer box. Also, I have a bad habit of getting both wheels of the GSA off the ground on occasion.. so I may be compressing the rear shock more than most. I will check the new box when I get home and see what they have done on the back side to address the rear brake bleader and will post up what I found... could be that Dave has a better design because he has thought of the bleader.
We are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of "security." And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone.
