You basically have to remove the wing from the bike then remove the bottom cover from the wing and drill 4 holes into the wing. The holes are drilled thru the 4 spots that are made to mount a rack to the wing. They are quite obvious. Then take your time and try to follow the givi mounting instructions. They are a little tough to follow but its pretty easy. Took me about half an hour to do it.

Hi,

You can follow this Pictorial of how to install the Givi backrest:

https://www.silverwing600.com/pictorials-how-to-perform-maintenance-f21/givi-passenger-backrest-installation-pictorial-t31.htm

If you go to "Step 10" you will see there are 4 holes that you need to drill out. I drilled out 2 holes for the Givi backrest but you will see 2 more that need to be drilled out for the Givi mount for the case. If you have any problems please get back to me and I will send you the picture with circles around the 4 holes that needed to be drilled out.

Thanks JeffR for the links,and jeffp thanks for the explanation.
I know I can do it now.I have the service manual so taking it apart should not be a problem.
I also have the light kit to wire in,witch I think I will put on with the brake light.
Thank you jeffp and JeffR for your fast response.

I followed Jeff's pictorial thinking, "It must be more difficult than that; where's the catch?" but it isn't and there isn't one!
The hardest part was stopping the spacers falling out whilst putting in the bolts. GIVI mount Icon_wink

I bought a new drill-bit beforehand, just to be on the safe side.
I did the deed on the front lawn very methodically (with pauses) and it took less than 40 minutes IIRC.
