Newb w/ Kappa Case Question....

I'm very happy to have found StromTrooper.com... Read some great threads and now have some valuable info to chew on..... thanks to all the contributors.

Just returned from a beautiful SE Michigan ride and got me a V-Strom buzz goin'. Riding with my better 3/4's makes it that much better so I want more comfort for my bride of 20 yrs. I'm looking for a back pad for my Kappa top case but unsure of the model #. I checked out past threads but no help. Any assist with id'ing model and/or locating a source will be most appreciated.

Here's an image I hope helps:

The image didn't come through, but if the top case is the OEM branded one with Suzuki badging, it is a Kappa K48. The side cases, if you have them are K40s. Kappa has a specific backrest for the K48, 176-K631 is the part number, but you can probably bodge something together to do the job as well.

You're welcome. Beware, I found the part number on the Canadian Kappa website. I just checked the US site which shows a different part number, K611

K611 - Cases

That may be a universal fit backrest. It's probably worth a phone call to them.
