Trunk Recomendation
« on: May 09, 2017, 12:24:26 pm »
Did Kawasaki ever have a factory trunk for the c10? I'm looking for one that has a backrest or that can have a pad installed for passengers, can anyone recommend one that's at a reasonable price point?

Kawasaki didn't make a factory trunk.
Part of your question should include, how big of trunk do you want?

There are hundreds of possible trunks, in many different sizes..
I suspect that most of us, have the Givi Trunks...

NOTE: One member just posted a basic small trunk {from Ebay} that cost about $40 and it has a pad..

Ride safe, Ted

I have an Emgo mounted on the factory rack with the backrest . Matches the side bags pretty gòod . Wizard may have a rack for you . The trunk was about 40 bucks .

I have the Givi because when I was shopping it was the only one (that I could find but there may be others) that offered a factory backrest as an option. My hunch is that the Givi might be stronger for some reason because of thickness, design or the like. Pricey but seems to be substantial enough for someone to lean on it.  Like I said, there may be others.

Thanks for the feedback, I sent a PM to Wizard to see if he has a rack. I'm not as much concerned about size 'cause most I'll just be storing a rain suit and my daily lunch. Appearance is more important, I'm sure though once I star using it it will be too small.

I have the Shad 46.  It's way over priced.  I forget what rack I have it on.  If Phil made one for the C10, it's probably that one.
EDIT: Or Murph's mount kit, maybe.
