PostSubject: Givi TB19 Passenger Backrest   Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:29 pm

As I mentioned in my Intro, I ordered a Givi TB19 Passenger Backrest and installed it this afternoon. VERY pleased. Looks great and Passenger is now a happy camper!
I, of course, woke up in a cold sweat, last night, contemplating drilling holes in my newly-acquired bike, but as described in this Forum, the location for the holes is molded into the underside of the rack and even has indentations already punched in it, to make centering your drill bit a breeze.
The one-page, photo-only instruction sheet was somewhat easy to figure out. My only gripe is that the size of the hole to be drilled was not indicated in the pictorial. Comparing bits to the size of the bolt, I started with a 1/4" bit (US SAE-sized), but quickly determined that a 5/16" bit was the better choice. Not sure if a 9/32" bit or an MM bit would have been an even better fit, because they were not available in my palette of drill bits.
I would have to rate this installation as "easy-peasy," even for one not so mechanically inclined.
Of course, 170 yards into the test ride, Passenger chimes in with, "You know, now I need an armrest and a sound system..."
