    Gen 1 Topbox on Gen 2

    I have seen a few people have taken the small ramp off the rack on their Gen 2 to make a Gen 1 rack fit.

    Has anyone  who has done this had any problems? Is the topbox still secure?

    Yes, the Gen 1 box works fine on the Gen 2 rack.  Just jigsaw the 'pyramid' from the Gen 2 rack.  Make a neater job of it than mine..... :004:

    The mounting mechanism is identical, I've tried the gen 2 box on the gen 1 and it fits on there exactly the same, perfectly secure, just has a gap where the bump would go, it really is just BMW being scummy cash grabbers...
