Givi E68 Backrest Pad for E45 and E36 Top Cases
A great product
This back pad fits perfectly on the Givi Box. Installation was simple using the included template. I would caution buyers to measure twice and cut once. It is tricky to line up the template on the Top case in a way that would perfectly match the back pad since the hinge and a lip on the Givi box are right where the bottom of the pad rests. It all makes sense when you get it together, but you should be careful to recheck all measurements and line things up before drilling. Once installed the pad looks great and is a perfect fit. It sits in the perfect spot on the passengers back to make it ultra-comfortable for long rides. It looks factory perfect and is a perfect match to the box.

Helps for longer rider
Initially we had the top case too far forward for my GF on the back, when we installed this, it pushed her into an awakward riding position. After removing the bracket for the case and moving it back much further it was more comfortable. I guess my only complaint is when i have the case off the bike looks awkward because there is the bracket for the case sticking out a good 5 inches from the tail...

Good piece provided you use your top case as only a top case.
This fits the economy E series top cases, but there's a few basic limitations you need to consider. if you also use your top case as a side case, you won't want this, it requires drilling through the lid to mount, not a big deal if it's only a top case, but as a side case the backrest would be hanging off the bottom and likely deteriorate quickly. When you take the case off the bike and set it on the ground like you might a suitcase, it no longer will stand on it's own as the backrest is on the ground making the case tip. Both minor issues unless you use your cases like carry on luggage. If you only use the case as a top case, and it stays on the bike, you'll like it. The body is injected foam rubber, it's dense and firm, but there's no cover to provide long term wear surface. It's an economy piece with a reasonable (for motorcycle gear) price. I like it, but it's not a premium product, and it's use is ilimited.

The pad comes with a paper stencil that made drilling a snap. Note that when installed, the top of the pad is quite a bit higher than the top of the case. Not a bad look, but not what I expected. Probably a better position for passenger comfort.
