K1600GT Top Case
« on: October 08, 2017, 01:55:48 PM »
Hi Guys

Anyone know if the BMW K1600GT top case will fit the XR? I have the GT, and will sell it minus the case if it fits.

No idea if it fits, but is the K1600 box not a bit on the humungous side for the XR?

Nope, won't fit. Mount is different. GS top box fits though.

Hi Marc, any idea if there is an adapter plate for the rack.

There isn't. I had a 29L top box left over from my R1200RT and I looked into making an adapter in order to use it (same mounting configuration as the K1600) but it wasn't practical. I ended up selling it and buying the correct box which looks more like it belongs on the XR than the other boxes did anyway.

Thanks Marc
I'll sell the box then.
