Rear handle/rack replacement
« on: March 16, 2020, 01:44:28 AM »
2018 XR here, US version with all the bells and whistles and bulky rear rack behind the seat.  I'd like to consider changing it over to the standard rear handle on the European model.  I see it on BikeBandit for $157.  Have any other riders (especially US) done the swap?

Thanks.  So did you order all the parts shown?  Handle, 4 bolts, BMW badge, rubber buffers or were some of those on the original rack?
