Not an answer to your question, but I got a trekker with a back rest. Not seen a OEM box fitted with one.
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.

Hi, I got a Givi top box which has an optional extra padded back rest fitted. Got it all through eBay and the lot stood me in at around £175:00 all new gear too , see pic ;-)

I've been looking for a while too as I saw a picture of a CT with a topbox and a padded backrest but not had any joy yet. Will continue and let you know if I have any joy.
I love talking about nothing. It is the only thing I know anything about.

If you'e ok with a cheap and cheerful /temp solution I can recommend getting a car back rest cushion and some velcro strip from somewhere like Halfords, works a treat if you don't mind the looks too much. For me, keeping the pillion happy is top priority...or so I'm told. :169:  As a bonus, she can sit on the cushion when her rear gets more painful than her back, simple.
You can just about make oit the backrest in the attachment.
Hope this helps.

Hepko and Becker have back rest. Drill 4 holes. Screw on.
