OEM Trunk/Top Box

I have an OEM trunk/top box on order. Who is the actual manufacturer of the trunk? I want to by a pad for my passenger and don't know what make or model it is so I can reference it in my search. Can anyone help?

OEM rack is SW Motech, so I'd guess they also make the top box

OEM panniers are Givi

That's what I read here on the forum but I can't find a SW Motech top box anywhere to see what model it might be.

I have the OEM top box. I mounted a Harley Mini pad to mine. It looks good IMHO.
I have pics uploaded under community link above. Simple install and costs 17 - 24 bucks depending on where you buy from.

Think it is a Shad. Got one thrown in on my bike purchase. Did not like it at all, funny looking and small. Now have a forty year old japanese fiberglass (Shoie??) forty liter on the Kawi rack.

I got a good deal on it an my main purpose for it is as a passenger backrest... Now I'll start looking at shad boxes for back pads. thanks for the info.

I don't think that SW Motech makes cases. Check out Twistedthrottle.com for cases. Givi and SHAD make good plastic cases. You will find other interesting caes from Pelican and others if you need a special purpose topcase.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Sounds like a challenge to me!

Now I have four!
