    Hi Everyone,

    I have one doubt. Could I buy the topcase for BMW S1000XR K49 (old model) and place it on K69 (2021 year - new model)?


    Thank you

    Pretty sure you can't do this without modifying the Gen2 rack. I know because when I sold my box, a guy with a Gen2 was looking at it but decided not to mess with his rack.. :007:

    I'm sure someone else will confirm this.. :084:

    No because BMW are anti consumer lol... The Gen 1 and Gen 2 boxes are identical. The only difference is the Gen 2 top rack has a little hump on it, and the boxes for it have a little cutout to fit. The Gen 2 boxes fit on the Gen 1 no problem as that lacks this hump. You could grind down the hump on your Gen 2, then the Gen 1 box fits no problem but I doubt you want to do that.

    Thank you :) I don't want to grind :(

    Look at this link. In the description are indicated both models K49 and K69 for the same topcase.

    I'm not sure if the large cases are any different to the normal size ones, maybe this one is a Gen 2 large case to begin with marketed to also fit the Gen 1 which it will. I'd confirm with the shop.

    I feel they don't know :)

    Maybe you can go from a Gen2 to a Gen1 ok but not the other way, I'm pretty sure the guy that looked at buying my Gen1 top box would have had to grind down a hump on the Gen2 rack that isn't on the Gen1.

    I removed my rack and replaced with Givi, so, if the Gen1 rack fits the Gen2 frame you could fit the Gen1 rack..

    I'll track down the thread and see if it sheds some light on the matter..

    And what do you think, to buy Gen1 topcase and to edit it? :)
