Over in Brad's thread on the topic, he mentions 3/16" thickness for the aluminum. I was thinking mine was 1/4", but it's been a long time, so it's probably 3/16".

The issue with going wider, it depends on your saddlebags (if equipped). The width of mine gets in the way as it is. No saddle bags? Probably not an issue to go a bit wider. And I wouldn't want to make it much longer. Depending on how you distribute the weight, it hangs off the back enough, IMO.
