S1000XR Sidecase Question
« on: August 11, 2019, 03:15:29 PM »
Hi all. I have a question and please forgive my ignorance as I’m a complete BMW newbie. I have a 2016 S1000XR and am looking at a set of R1200R sidecases. My question is will they fit my factory installed sidecase mounts. Many thanks in advance.

The best I can offer is..............
Panniers from an R1200RS WILL fit onto an XR.
However, panniers from an XR will NOT fit onto an R1200RS.
This is because the RS panniers have an indentation at the top rear, close to the grab rail, obviously for fitment to that particular bike. (This indentation is not present on the XR panniers)
I know it doesn't answer your question directly, but it's better than nothing.

I wanted to follow up with everyone. I bought the cases and they installed perfectly. No mods and no adjustments needed.

I see you said no adjustment needed, but I'll add one thing anyway.  The side cases are adjustable for tightness of fit, or wiggle.  The lower piece that fits over the tube has two screws inside the case that can be used to move this piece up and down to take up any slack in the fit.

Jeez, I wish I knew this before buying my Shad cases, or at least had the forethought to try.... a mate of mine has a pair from his R1200R that got stolen which I could have had.   :157:
